Just a Dash of Metallics

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends

Designers brought out the Heavy Metal for the Fall 2017 shows.

Metallics were present in everything from bedazzled retro disco-ball boots at Saint Laurent to futuristic space-girl ensembles at Chanel and Miu Miu making the message clear, Fall 2017 is the Time to Shine!

As is often the case, runway looks don’t exactly translate easily to street looks. If you’re not ready to go full mylar balloon jumpsuit  a la Comme des Garcons (and lets face it who is) then opt for pops of silver as opposed to blinging it out head-to-toe.

My advise is to play with metallic accents before you go full-on astronaut with the metallic trend.

A silver bag or glittery boots are a safe way to guild your look this season.  Try pairing a fun metallic jacket or bag with a basic tee and jeans then work your way up to incorporating more bold statement making metallic pieces.

Silver will liven up the simplest of outfits or will work as a neutral when paired with loud prints or bold primary colors.  Just be careful to make sure your metallic pieces look luxe and not cheap.  Faux silver leather and some fast fashion liquid silver pieces can look tacky rather than trendy.

Shine on!

How to Add the Western Trend to Your Look

Western Fashion Trend

The Fashion world went bat S*&^ crazy when they saw the DIOR RESORT 2018 show “Dior in the Desert” back in May.

Donned in Western Inspired looks instead of on a runway, models walked back and forth on packed desert dirt in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains in the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve just after sunset as hot air balloons swayed in the background.  Seriously it was magical, and after the show hit the web not a single fashionista alive could wait even one more second to infuse that Wild Wild West vibe into their own closet.

Spanish Style Cowboys hat’s immediately sold out from coast to coast.

But before the DIOR show even happened designers were already tipping their hat’s to the Modern Cowgirl in the FW17 shows.  Western motifs were everywhere from DSQUARED2 to Cavalli and Chloe in the form of grommeted leather jackets, fringed shirts, leather pants and prairie dresses.

So what does that mean for you?  Well yes, the Western trend is HUGE this season but that doesn’t mean you have to ride into Fall guns a blazin’ looking like Annie Oakley.

You can give your Fall look a dash of Yee-haw by adding a few key elements of western and prairie style while still staying true to your own personal vibe.

Opposites attract, try pairing cowboy boots with a flirty dress, or add fringe elements such as a jacket or bag to your evening look.  Remember CONTRAST is a fashion girl’s best friend.

By choosing one or two western inspired statement pieces to do the talkin’  you stay on-trend without looking like you are wearing a costume.

3 Fall Trends You Should Know

Any moment now the big fat delicious September issues of your favorite fashion magazines will land in your mailbox packed full of Fall Fashion goodness.

Time to get those pens ready and take note of What’s in, What’s Out and What you need to get your hands on NOW!

As a Fashion stylist I am always working a season ahead (right now I’m looking at trends and planning shoots for Resort 2018) so its pretty fair to say that I know my way around Fall 2017’s must-haves  (I have been working with them since June).

To get you up to Fall Fashion speed and in the fashion-know I focused this weeks Outfit of the Day on three of my favorite Fall 2017 trends: moody florals, high necklines and boxy silhouettes.

Moody Florals are not only an absolute must-have for fall they are also the most seamless way to transition between seasons.   Your fresh, light springy floral prints turn darker and more opulent for fall.  Think bouquets of burnt orange, caramel, toffee, burgundy, oxblood, brown, deep blues and rich purples.

The perfectly moody fall floral I’m wearing was actually once a dress that I scored on the clearance rack at Neiman Marcus Last Call for $25.  I loved the top of the dress but not the bottom- it was way too short for me- so I had my tailor transform it into this oh-so-on-trend high neck blouse!

High Necklines.  For Fall 2017  The Victorian Era reigned the runways.  Loads of lace, ruffles, and high necklines cascaded down the catwalks of the most notable designers.  Expect to see regal high necklines all season long.  The good news about this trend is that its super chic, perfectly romantic and incredibly flattering.

Boxy Silhouettes are everything this season.   Designers got Utilitarian with workwear-inspired boxy shapes in everything from denim to boiler suits, suiting, layering pieces and topcoats.

This beautiful boxy Longchamp jacket was my score of the summer. I was combing through the depths of the Nordstrom Rack Clearance section and stumbled upon it for $100!

#Winning

But it gets even better.  It was a clear the rack day so I got another 25% off the $100!

Yaas oh yaas.

Stylist Tip: Remember that trends are meant to mix and match.  I used THREE trends to create this chic fall day look. You don’t have to go head to toe Victorian or over the top with boxy on top and bottom.  Let the trends be fluid, use them to inspire you to create something new.

How to Wear Blush Pink When It's Really Not Your Jam

How to wear Blush Pink

Make no mistake blush pink (aka millennial pink) has secured the top spot when it comes to color choices this Spring/Summer and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

In fact Blush Pink/Millennial Pink has made it’s way into the “new neutral” category.

It’s undeniably hot,  but to be honest, pinks really aren’t my thing.

I’m more of a blacker than black clothing kind of gal, seriously you should see my LBD collection.

If you are like me and this color trend has you feeling a little desaturated, a bit heartbroken about missing out on one of the season’s biggest trends, and a little color-curious, don’t fear, I’ve got the 411 on how you can rock blush pink even if it’s not your jam!

The key is to pair this ultra-feminine shade with a shade that’s a little more in your wheelhouse, like black or denim….. or black.  LOL.

To give the look even more of a boost go for texture.  Experiment with lace, chiffon or suede pieces (summer suede is huge this year) which will create depth and help it not feel so “Barbie skin” color on you.

Want to go bolder? Find a blush-colored dress or blouse with embellishments such as a neck-tie or beading.

You don’t have to blush from head-to-toe to get a piece of this trend.  Try using the shade as an accent color or dabble in blush accessories like loafers, heels or a bag.

How will you incorporate Blush Pink into your Spring/Summer 2017 Look?

Easy to Wear Spring Looks

Breezy Boho Blouses and Crossbody Bags

Everyday style is just as important as when you turn that style dial up a notch for evening.  I have had a ton of readers message me asking about easy to wear Spring looks that are both comfortable and easy to wear everyday.  So ladies, this one is for you.

When it comes to easy to wear Spring looks, Breezy boho blouses and crossbody bags are two of this season’s biggest “get’s” and most wearable trends.

A loose flowy boho blouse is probably one of the comfiest things you can put on.   Easy to wear yet totally put together.  Pair it with my secret for comfort and confidence: high-waisted jeans.

After decades of being locked in the prison that is low-rise jeans (ladies you know what I mean) FINALLY high-rise is back!

Why do I love them?  Let me count the ways, first no muffin top (seriously they land just above where that muffin would spill over).  Second, no worries when you bend over about exposing the world to your bum crack, and third, the high rise of the jean allows you to wear tops that might have seemed a bit too short or cropped before without exposing your tummy.

Hallelujah!

Your search for the perfect everyday bag is over.  Totally on-trend, easy to pair, convenient, and carefree who doesn’t love a good crossbody handbag! This season it’s all about crossbody’s with chain straps and I am head over heels OBSESSED with Tory Burch’s Gemini Link Bag. Day to night perfection- this bag does double duty.  Pull the chain to create a double chain handle bag OR adjust the chain to wear it as a crossbody!

Toss on some long necklaces, a pair of comfy heels or wedges and you are set for whatever the day has in store for you.

Stylists Tip: Spring 2017 accessories are not about being quiet.   Mix and match shiny or metallic finishes with animal or floral prints to really make a style statement.
