Behind the Design: Tassel & Fringe

Posted on Apr 22, 2019 5:17:48 PM


Flirty wardrobe season is upon us, ladies and gents! There are few feelings better than throwing on a festive statement piece, some crispy white denim, a little wedge or espadrille, and hitting the town. Luckily for us, warm weather styling scenarios are just one among many specialties of our beloved and highly fashion-able Chief Creative Director, Deborah Waterman Johns (DWJ).

Behind the Design: Floral of the Story

Posted on Mar 21, 2019 11:39:41 AM

This spring, greenery is giving us life at SCOUT HQ and beyond! Our Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder, Deb, wanted to soften the hardened edges of our go-go-go metropolitan lives with some organic and romantic motifs for spring and summer alike. Bright and rejuvenating leafy greens are popping up on all the runways—and on our products too. We can’t get enough of these colorful and natural vibes after all that winter we’ve suffered through.

Behind the Design: ColorBlocking

Posted on Mar 15, 2019 12:18:20 PM



It’s safe to say that most of our current winter wardrobes can best be described as “ashen,” and the need for a splash of color is beginning to feel pretty necessary, if not a dire fashion emergency. Our meteorologists at HQ will have you know that despite these cold and cloudy weather conditions, there are Signs of Hope. It may be the third week of February, but at SCOUT, Spring/Summer 2019 is in full and vibrant swing thanks to our newest colorblocked friends.

blog-BehindtheDesign-Jan-Denim-headerWith Wednesday’s release of the new Spring/Summer 2019 Collection, it’s only appropriate we shine a glorious, blue light on our newest solid: DENIM. We often forget how highly functional, seasonless, and well worth the splurge it is. Luckily for all you SCOUT cowgirls, our newest denim products won’t break the bank or split the old wallet at the seams.

Behind the Design: Leopard

Posted on Dec 5, 2018 12:46:09 PM

Hi kitties, I have something to say about leopard. Point blank: it is the "power print." When you wear a leopard jacket, shoe, dress, heck, even a purse, you essentially become a brooding, powerful leopard slinking around the savannah stalking your prey (or grocery shopping). There are literally no rules to rocking leopard, only possibilities. This said you should wear it all season long, and Deb’s going tell you exactly how to do so. Kitty cat MEOW.

I would be remiss to choose one, specific theme to elaborate on everything that’s happening in fashion for 2018/2019. Yikes, that reads like the thesis for a term paper on the selected works of William Faulkner due Monday morning at nine, but you conveniently waited to start it on Sunday at 6 PM. But, seriously, you can’t put the overarching theme of the upcoming season in a box, folks, so try to keep an open mind and closet. There’s going to be comebacks from a couple different eras, like the’60s,’80’s,’90s, and maybe even, like, the Gold Rush (I’ve seen some western wares that make me want to yell, “Yee-freakin-HAW!”).

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.

Benjamin: Yes, sir.

Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?

Benjamin: Yes, I am.

Mr. McGuire: Plastics.

Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?

Mr. McGuire: There's a great future in plastics. Think about it. Will you think about it?

Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are gonna be friends

Walk with me, Suzy Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound...

Hip Hip.
Hip Hip.

When you're on a holiday, you can’t find the words to say
All the things that come to you, and I wanna feel it too
On an island in the sun, we’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine I can’t control my brain
We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore...

Hip Hip.
