StyleFile: Planning a wedding can become a full-time job–whats your advice for brides to help make it an easier experience?
Abby Larson: Hire a wedding planner! Although to those on a strict budget this may seem like a splurge, a good wedding planner can not only make the experience so much more manageable (allowing you to actually have fun with it) but they can save you money in the costly mistakes that brides often make when planning. Other than that, make sure to build in moments of fun throughout the whole process – make a day out of dress shopping with your mom and your besties, have your maids over for some wine and crafting, turn cake testing into a full on date night. Dote on the journey just as you would the day itself!

Print Mixing 101 With Suno’s Erin Beatty & Max Osterweis

CFDA winner and fashion world darling Suno makes its debut on Gilt today, which means those insanely chic prints and cool girl staples are now within closer grasp. To celebrate the arrival, we asked designers Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis to give us a little lesson in their ultimate forte—mixing prints, but of course.

- “It’s easier to mix a geometric, like a stripe, with something more feminine, like a floral,” the pair says.

- “Limit your colors—navy and white in the beginning. As you get used to it, take risks. The point is to stand out and express yourself.”

- And finally, “Don’t force it,” Erin and Max say. “Just wear what feels beautiful. Remember, there’s nothing chicer than a perfect pair of jeans with a printed top and a chic blazer. If you’re feeling really daring, a striped blazer!”

What are you waiting for? Put their advice to use and shop the sale on Gilt.
