The Looks I’d Wear | Pre-Fall 2014 Designer Collections

21 Jan

I needed a fashion juice-up and decided to flip through some of the Pre-Fall collections on Style.com. I found that black and white continued to be important colors for this time period, along with soft to bold shades of blue and burgundy. I normally just give a show review, but today,  I thought I’d challenge myself to select 3-4 looks that could make it to my closet from each collection. It’s easy to pick favorite looks from designers you love, the challenge is selecting from designers that aren’t at the top of your list. [In doing this I found myself adding quite a few new favorites!]  Check out my 1st round of selections below and let me know who you like!

5. Denim Shirts: Also known as “Chambray” (Yes, you can say it with a French accent) is a lightweight denim that is great on its own AND as a layering piece! They come in all types of washes and styles… act like the DOW and INVEST!Picture 22Tommy Ton Pitti Uomo Street Style - CasualAppreciation3

These are just a few of the many ways that denim is morphing into new and updated concepts. Extreme washes, waxed, and dipped ombre are a few of the other new denim treatments you’ll see on the sales floor this season.

So get out to your local mall or boutique! Re-read this blog post, pull out your harmonica, and feeeeeeel the BLUES!!

::SM:: Reviews Red Carpet Trends | Golden Globes 2012

17 Jan

Award shows are always a pleasure to watch, especially the pre-show when you get to see what your favorite celebs are wearing as they parade onto the red carpet. After reviewing some photos by Jason Merrit and Frazer Harrison for nymag.com I was able to locate a few trends that stood out to me that evening.

The sea of blackness just so happened to be accented by airy pastels that proved to be a key pallet for the evening.

Other celebrities added a stronger hue of jewel tones to their gowns with deep rich wine, aubergine, sapphire, and dark green shades.

     

The majority of the men at the ‘Globes’ looked … for lack of better words.. blah!However, it’s the key details that made them truly standout in a salt and pepper crowd. Vests, pointed collars, and satin lined blazers set a different tone for these fellas.

             

Sunday night was all about putting your best foot forward! With slits running all the way up these ladies legs – the “thigh” was certainly their best accessory! Pilates, Yoga, and P90X has been working for somebody! hah.

              

All-in-all, there were great looks and then NOT so great looks; but when you’re a celebrity making millions of dollars ….does it really matter what I think? haha.

What were your favorite looks of the night!? Were you able to catch any other trends?

All the Best,
