Street Style, Local Style

Whether we admit it or not, we all look to celebrities or style bloggers for style inspiration. You can’t open up a magazine without seeing street style shots of the latest trends walking down the avenues of LA or NYC. I personally look at Instagram all the time to keep up on what is happening in the world of fashion.

I notice that what is really trending right now is a very easy, low-key style, which is exactly what we try to present at The Shoe Hive and The Hive. This month we are unpacking boxes every day of great, elevated basics that are easy to wear, can be worn more than just one season, and in more than one way.

Today we’ve picked some of our favorite looks that celebrities have been wearing lately to see if we could put a spin on it, local style. You don’t have to be a movie star or model to look good on the go. Here are three great looks that make getting dressed easy.


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
