Cute As A Button Front

September 9, 2015

Summer is, for all intents and purposes, over. Although the weather is still warm, it is time to start thinking about the season ahead, and embrace some of the fall trends to help you transition fashionably.

By far, the “it” skirt of the season is the button front. Cut in either suede or denim, this 70’s throwback is making a huge comeback. The mini version may be getting the most play, but there are longer, leaner alternatives that look chic and sophisticated. Start wearing one now, with bare legs and a simple tee or chambray shirt, and work up to boots and layers as the weather turns colder.

Start out with a soft shirt, loosely tucked into a higher waisted skirt.

You can’t go wrong with denim or chambray!



As the chill starts to move in, add a blazer or leather jacket to the mix.


Honestly WTF

A striped sweater, camel duffle coat and felt hat channel the 70’s.

Photo Finish

Photographic prints in black and white are taking the Fall runways by a storm this season. From street scenes to faces, these photo-realistic scenes provide the perfect landscape for sculpted dresses, shapely skirts and fluid blouses.

New York Fashion Week Wrap-Up

February 21, 2012

New York Fashion Weekhas come to a close, with more than 280 designers showing their collections for  Fall 2012-13  over the course of 9 days. While it was somewhat of a conservative season, there were overarching trends that emerged. Here are a few of the “must haves,” New York style:

  1. Burgundy was the #1 color shown by many designers. It is a deep warm red that plays well off of all the black and white shown. Also look for rich blues, and emerald green as runners up.
  2. Chunky Sweaters were abundant, whether mixed with something soft and ethereal, or back to clean leather bottoms.
  3. Leather sportswear cropped up virtually everywhere, in simple easy cut pants, lean pencil skirts and tops, dresses or jackets of all kinds. A great fitting leather bottom is a must have for the season.
  4. Military madness is sweeping the catwalks again, and the military inspired jacket or coat is a key piece.
  5. Menswear influences, through classic fabrics and new takes on haberdashery styling permeated the runways.  Mix it up, with new proportions and items.
  6. Metallic fabrics, whether in gold or jewel toned colors added an unexpected twist to the looks. Shine in general, through finishes and technical aspects to fabrics are still important.
  7. Fur is still gaining momentum with everything from shaggy outerwear, to handbags and even a raccoon tail as an accessory being prominent across designers.
  8. Black is the new black, and head to toe winter white was a showstopper.
  9. Flower power continues into fall, where the spring trend morphs onto leather, soft fabrics and jacquards.

10. Blanket stripes and patched fabrics add a cozy outdoorsy feel to fashion. 11. Below the knee looks, from skirts to an influx of cropped trousers gave a new proportion to the season.

12. Peplums made a comeback for spring, and are continuing to rule the runways in modern iterations of the vintage silhouette. Some of these items may be sitting in your closet, waiting for a renaissance. Try putting them together in new and exciting ways, and give your current wardrobe an instant upgrade!
