Hey kiddos, whether you like it or not, New York Fashion
Week has been in full swing, and all the fashionable people on the Internet are buzzing
about shows, photographers, and the right thing to wear when entering the
tents. While I have yet to attend
Fashion Week (no matter my passion, I need my work paycheck to pay the mortgage
and to fill my closet), I have learned from my fellow fashionistas that while
it is important to care about what you wear, it's equally important to be
informed and share your runway experiences.
Below is a list of must-have phone apps and websites you should be checking out for the ultimate experience at New York Fashion week, or any fashion event
throughout the year.
If you were too focused on buying presents and baking cookies to even think about your New Year's outfit, know that you're not the only one. I type this, surrounded by torn gift wrap and fabulous presents, just catching my breath and realizing New Years Eve is next weekend. Ack!
Well, here are some suggestions to look as though you spent weeks on your glam look for your New Years fete.
This fall is a great season to stock up on trends that are classic, and flattering to so many different body types. One trend I am adoring, and know will still look chic years from now is the return of the cape.
I know, many of you when you hear "cape" may think of Superman and
Sherlock Holmes. However, this fall's cape is far more elegant,
versatile and figure-flattering than a red satin or ankle-length number
famous made famous by your favorite storybook hero. A cape is a great
piece to wear during transitional weather--you can slip over a tee and
jeans for a trip to the market, over a suit or dress with ease, or use
it as a layering piece with a heavy sweater or fitted jacket for
additional warmth come winter. Capes work on slight and curvy frames,
petite and tall women, and will work even if you are between sizes (or expecting!).
Here are some of my favorite budget-friendly capes for this fall--styles that are kind to your figure, your lifestyle and your wallet.
When we think of rainy days, we usually think of spring. As we all know, April showers bring May flowers! The thing is, it rains during other seasons, and come late summer and fall your candy pink umbrella and lemon yellow slicker may seem too spring-like to work with your wardrobe. I searched the web for some of my favorite fashion for inclement weather.
All of these pieces are long on style but short on price, ensuring you stay comfortable, dry, and stylish all season long:
I love wearing white in summer--it gives such a crisp look, and it complements every color in your wardrobe. White is also a great color to wear in the sun--it reflects the light keeping you cooler than if you wore the same item in a darker hue. While white is a perfect summer color to wear, it takes some care to ensure it looks great on you.
This coming week I will be attending the Bonnaroo music festival. I have written about festival fashion before, but this post is about what I have learned over many years of music festivals to be the best fashion choices to look great and feel great while there.
