Choosing top collections from the Fashion Week lineups is no easy task, so despite my best efforts I am sure there are designers and looks that I truly love that aren’t on the following list… Please tell me in the comments who your favorites were from NYFW. So without further ado….
3.1 Phillip Lim
This collection teaches us the true art of layering in the winter… An expert mix of colors and fabrics.
BCBG Max Azria
Love the rorschach-esque patterns, the fluid fabrics, and the leather legs.
Inspired by Russia… Siriano’s collection represents the luxe lady that I hope to someday be.
The makeup and the shoes are to die for… As always, Wu expertly blends feminine and dark elements.
Cool moss green combined to form unexpected color palettes… This collection looks effortlessly chic.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
This collection is reminiscent of the late 70s, with rich colors and the styling is absolutely perfect.
Graphic, sporty… This collection pushes the envelope, while remaining very wearable.
Perfect mix of hard and soft with a nod to military… beautifully done.
I’m a sucker for black and white everything, and it is done flawlessly here. Interesting cuts and fabrics, and can I please wear that white dress for my nonexistent wedding?
Love the fabrics and how well they are cut… Another perfect example of effortless chic.
More fashion week updates to come… Have a wonderful weekend!
What do you think? How would you style this metallic beauty?
My recent travels got me thinking about what to wear when you are setting off on an airplane. Comfort is obviously key, but that doesn’t have to mean sweatpants, leggings, or other articles of loungewear. These pieces are much better left at home. (Please, please leave these at home!) I wasn’t able to get any shots of my own travel attire, but I’ve recreated looks above inspired by my own.
The first outfit combines comfy trouser pants with a basic tank top. Comfy trousers look put together and modern without the feeling of being constricted during a long flight. I always get chilly on airplanes, so I recommend layering with a cardigan or a scarf, which can easily be removed and stowed upon arrival (if your destination happens to be tropical or warm like mine.) Another unfortunate effect of flying for me is that my feet swell, so I typically go with sandals to allow for this unlucky expansion.
The second outfit I love for travel is designed around the very breezy and trendy maxi skirt. Pair a cotton maxi skirt with a boxy sweater and a scarf for optimal comfort. This will look wrinkle-free and chic throughout the trip. I added a fun floral corset top underneath for a totally new outfit upon arrival. For both travel looks, I did minimal jewelry because airport security is so strict now, and it would be hell taking off an arm party at every security check-point. I also added a big, roomy satchel where you can store your magazines, books, iPod, etc. for the flight. Let me know what your go-to travel style is in the comments. And stay tuned for some shots from my trip to St. Thomas!
