  • My Favorite Winter Trends!

    With the surprisingly cold weather in the air, we think it’s time to start pulling out our winter wardrobe. We’ve pulled our FAVORITE looks from fashion week so that you can present your best self in the colder months!

    Plaid– Oh the joy of an OLDIE but goodie! The great thing about wearing plaid is that no matter what your style is, you can always incorporate plaid into your daily life. Wear it dressy or wear it casual. Plaid will never go out of style and that is why you should always keep it in your closet! During the holiday, plaid gives a sense of cheer to your family photos and will create a super chic look!  

    Square Sunglasses- The air may be cold, but the sun is still out! Protect your eyes with a perfectly polished pair of square sunnies. We’ve seen a lot of different styles during fashion week from large types to smaller and subdued. Sunglasses have always been an evolving accessory, but these frames will be timeless!

    Extra Long Sleeves- Who needs gloves when your sleeves can do the trick? Celebs like Rihanna love this trend (She added it to her runway debut) but the offer another alternative to keeping those fingers warm! Gone are the days of struggling to answer your calls through a pair of gloves. Who has time for that?

     

    Neons– Who says the bright colors are only made for warm weather? We saw bright neon prints on many of this years NYFW runway shows. Warm up the scene with your favorite neon brights this winter. Pick your favorite color and run with it! 

     

    Feathered Fur– We don’t want to upset PETA. Faux fur gives your all of the sass and warmth without endangering animals! We saw this trend over and over on the winter 2019/2020 runways!

    Cape– It’s the return of the cape! For those gals who like to keep it chic and modern and don’t always like to try too hard. We’ve seen large brands like Dior, Burberry, and Gucci pulled out the capes for the Winter 2019/2020 looks! 

  • Rules are meant to be broken! Wear your White after Labor Day!

    I’m sure we’ve all heard that old saying “No white after labor day”. The history: In the late 19th century the society ladies were engaged in an invisible battle with the nouveau riche, one that could only be won by the subtle manipulation of fashion.  According to Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in an interview with Time, “It [was] insiders trying to keep other people out, and outsiders trying to climb in by proving they know the rules.” Some etiquette authorities rebuff this class theory, however, regardless of how this theory came about, there’s on thing I think we can all agreed on, there is no need for us to still be following this rule in 2019. So in this blog, we’re going to walk you through how to wear your white year round.

     

    Invest in a pair of chic white booties- I know we all love to bring out those crisp white sneakers in the summer months. While we know you may have put them into hibernation, we hope you have had this upgrade in your queue. White booties are the perfect pair to your fall outfit. They can be paired with a cozy sweater and jeans, a sexy body con dress or even a chill and laid-back set.

     

    Your classic button down is your best friend- One thing is for sure, we all have that classic white button up in our closet and if you work in an office setting, you’re most likely wearing them frequently. You can continue to wear your classic button up outside of the office in the colder months by layering them over a classic t-shirt, wearing it under your favorite cozy sweater or you can wear it underneath your favorite camel coat for a night out on the town as the temperature starts to drop!

     

    There’s nothing like a clean white turtleneck- A white turtleneck not only says “HELLO FALL” but it shows your chic side. A white turtleneck can make you look like you’ve just came off the Chanel runway! Pair a white turtleneck with cognac accessories or your favorite pair of bootcut jeans.

    Contrast your white bottoms with fall colored tops- There’s no need to put away your white pants just yet! Contrast your white pants with fall cozy sweaters. You can create and ombre effect by wearing an ivory or beige sweater

    Break up your white with dark tones like black- Have plans to wear all white? No problem! Break up your all white looks with hint of black tones such as a black scarf, a black belt, or a black vest! Bringing in the contrast will make your look less springy and more fall!

  • fashion week style

    I have nothing to wear is usually my first thought when I’m packing for Fashion Week, and when I quickly rummage through my closet for ideas I confirm what I’d already suspected that I really have nothing to wear. Fashion Week style isn’t about dressing normally or sensibly, it’s not your typical street  style either.

    Fashion Week Style is a creative expression, it’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone and putting together outfits that you normally wouldn’t wear unless you are already a far out dresser.  Fashion Week street style is about being noticed  and being photographed by a swarm photographers usually on the prowl for stand out dressers.

    I love Fashion Week, I love the excitement and anticipation that come with it. I love the fashion, the shows and the parties afterwards, but most of all I love to people-watch to see people’s creativity. I guess I’m really more impressed with their commitment. I however, am not quite there yet, this is my toned down version of Fashion Week Style
