Young Fabulous & Broke is one of those fashion lines that really personifies what it is to be a free spirit, and it also tends to instantly invoke ideas of warm weather, beaches and the breezy Southern California lifestyle.
Here’s some background on the company:
Young Fabulous & Broke is the quintessential LA brand, designed by Fashion Industry icon Heidi Cornell McKenna to suit any wardrobe and to fit any occasion – which is why Megan Fox, Sienna Miller, Blake Lively, Sophia Bush and Alessandra Ambrosio use YFB pieces as their ‘go to’ clothing whether they are working, playing, shopping or even hiding.
“Young Fabulous & Broke is inspired by Young Hollywood. I love the laid-back LA style, so I wanted the designs to reflect that sort of easy going and free flowing bohemian lifestyle. The collections embody wearable boho-chic styles and are perfect for casual or dressy occasions,” said Heidi Cornell McKenna.
What you can expect to see in a general sense with Young Fabuous & Broke are lots of maxi dresses, form-fitting, yet-breathable fabrics and bold color options including ombre and tie-dye.
Everything from YFB looks really chic and stylish, but it still manages to be comfortable, functional and completely wearable whether you’re a starlet or a suburban mom looking for something to throw on and go.
Items from the newest collection that we particularly love right now include:
The Dreamer Bryton Dress: This dress may have a beachy tie-dye print, but at the same time it’s effortlessly sexy and chic and can be worn in a variety of situations. We love the asymmetrical hem combined with the side slits and the draped detailing at the hip. It’s got a nice form-fitting silhouette and it’s available in a beautiful shade of vibrant and dark blues.
White Kulani Skirt: There’s no other way to describe this skirt aside from “must-have.” We love this maxi skirt that features a center knot gathered detail and a mini-skirt that’s layered under the top shell. It has an elastic waistband and a handkerchief hem. As the weather warms up, pair this skirt with a basic tee or tank and you’re ready to go for nearly any occasion.
Sassy Maxi: What’s great about this black maxi dress is the ability it has to become a staple piece in your wardrobe. It is sleek and chic with a tank top-style upper area and the bottom has some visual interest and unique style thanks to the faux wrap skirt and the asymmetrical hem. We also love the racer-back, because it’s so effortlessly cool, and there’s some shirring detailing at the hips, which makes it figure flattering and curve-hugging.
Ombre Lexie Dress: Throw this ombre dress on whether you have to run errands or you’re hitting the beach for the day. It has spaghetti straps and a racer-back, with a combination of cool color tones and a faux wrap cut with a long side slip for some extra sexiness.
