Winter Whites

Western Edit

I don’t typically follow the rules when it comes to style, so that no all white rule really doesn’t apply to me! I’m really into wearing all different shades of white and creams right now for winter! A good pair of white denim can go with almost anything. I paired together Articles of Society white wash denim, white turtle neck with off white chrome toed cowboy booties! I added an off white western belt and a tan Lack of colors flat brim hat for an extra western touch! Walking around in the city like this was definitely a show stopper. I swear I belong in Nashville or something, because sometimes I feel like my style just sticks out like a sore thumb in a big city like NYC & Philly.

5 Trends Anyone Can Pull Off Right Now

Fashion truly goes in and out of different seasons when it comes to trends. That is what I love about the change; all of the styles evolving and growing into something new. What I find interesting is that there are trends from the 60’s-80’s rising back to the surface. When they say trends always come back, they always do. Here are my top five trends that I have been loving this season.

The first trend that I have seen everywhere is corduroy. It is such a playful material that spices up any outfit. It could be in a jacket or even pants, the options are endless when it comes to styling. Pair with a plain or patterned tee to add interest into the look.

The second trend is tailored suiting. I have never seen it in such a way that you can dress it down as well as up. The type of tailored suiting that I am talking about is not your typical suit. Add a belt to spice it up or pair with a fun bag.

My third trend is cheetah. It is one of those patterns that are not too in your face since it is a neutral, but it is such a statement piece at the same time! There are so many variations of cheetah print, that makes it such a fun print to style.

Even though florals are normally a fall pattern, introduce it to the fall season. I am talking about a deeper value floral so that it does look more appropriate for the upcoming season. With ruffles and layers taking a toll this season as well, floral is the perfect pattern to make it all happen.

Metallics have been in for some time now, and it is continuing to make it’s way into this season. I love how much interest a metallic shoe or jacket could give. It is not something that you would think to be an everyday piece, but get ready for it to be. Having a cool puffer jacket in the material is a perfect fashion piece to put over any old basic outfit.

My Fall Fashion Essentials

With it just beginning to get cold outside, I wanted to share with you five of my fall essentials aka the items I cannot live without when it is just beginning to get cold outside. The first one is the all-time classic black bootie. It is something so easy and second nature to get drawn to when it gets cold out.

The next big essential in my life during the fall is my teddy bear coat. It has to be the softest jacket of them all! These jackets cause you feel like you are wrapped in a blanket all day!

Another essential that I am drawn to is the chunky knit sweater. It is a staple piece during the fall to pair with everything. As a little tip when it comes to styling a sweater, layering is a fun aspect that spices up any outfit.

NYFW Day 3: Son Jung Wan, Christian Cowan, and Jonathan Simkhai

Day 3 of NYFW was actually my fifth day in the city! If you count the two days of photo shoots, LIM college panel discussion with Fashion Mingle, and the ever evolving events that happen during fashion week. So you can probably imagine the exhaustion at that point! Nevertheless actual day 3 of shows were nothing shy of amazing! Jonathan Simkhai being my all time favorite of the entire week.

After several seasons of attending NYFW shows, I think the presentation style “shows” are my favorite. Not only are they more personal but they give you the chance to appreciate the designs and then mingle and meet some of the best people in the industry! Jonathan Simkhai’s presentation was exactly that. However my absolutely favorite part was getting to see the behind the scenes. Seeing how the designer interacted with his models, the photographers, that event staff, his team, not only made me appreciate his brand, but him as a person in this industry.

I’ve heard some horror stories about designers and how they treat people. So seeing first hand the artist and the environment he creates with his team was truly impressive. Each season I gain more and more respect for those behind the scenes. Well cheers to another NYFW in the books!
