Happy #FASHIONWEDNEDSAY!! I am currently in New York City with Erica from Coming Up Roses The Blog and we are having the time of our lives (ignore the blisters on our feet, caffeine-induced hysteria and literally 3 hours of sleep a night). My favorite photographer got to come along for the ride the last few days and we got the most GORGEOUS photos at the Brooklyn Bridge (coming next week — stay tuned). Today I’m chatting about my favorite trends to wear during NYFW (they’ll turn heads, I promise). Let’s jump into it!
Trend #1: Anything Metallic
OMG. This is a trend I can 100% stand behind. It’s been making a serious comeback and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m all about metal — jewelry, lipstick, eyeshadow, shoes. It COVERED the runway this week (seriously — so gorgeous) so you know it’s what you are going to be seeing a lot of this fall and next spring. In this outfit – my gold strappy sandals stole the show with their gold metallic straps. Plus side? They are SO comfortable. I walked all day long in the city wearing these babies and no blisters. *cue All I Do Is Win – DJ Khaled*
Other ways for you to incorporate this trend would be a metallic bomber jacket (like my pink one here), metallic belts, or metallic skirts! They are so easy to add to your wardrobe and completely up your It Factor. 10/10 would recommend to all my friends.
Trend #2: Pinstripes
I also ADORE this trend. I actually had to have Amanda from Blissful Gal stop me from buying all the pinstripes when preparing for this trip. These also have been popular on the runways this year, so prepare to be bombarded with look-alive mensware in the coming season. This flare-sleeves pinstripe top is seriously adorable because not only does it incorporate pinstripes for the win, it also incorporates flare sleeves, another darling trend. I love my sleeves big enough for me to fly away. Combine the two hot hot hot trends? Magic.
Other ways for you to incorporate this trend would be a pinstripe button up (go for a fitted look to avoid looking like to stole your boyfriends work shirt), pinstripe t-shirt dress (LOVE) or pinstripe jumpsuit. Vertical stripes are slimming and stunning, which means you will always look flattered in this pattern. Aren’t we glad this is totally making a come back???? I’m all for looking slim , trim + fabulous!
SHOP THIS TOP (it’s only $20 right now)!
Trend #3: All things ROSES.
SUPES appropriate for Erica’s blog (oh HEY Coming Up Roses). We saw the most gorgeous leather jacket + skirt combo with embroidered roses at the Fashion Palette show last night and I swooned. Whether is was lace roses on dresses, embroidered on leather or bejeweled on headpieces, roses took over New York this week. SO this mustard + royal purple wrap top is literally the icing on the cake to a perfect NYFW outfit because the purple design you see there? ROSES. I am SUCH a sucker for floral and have been really digging the way you can mix and match this pattern.
Other ways for you to incorporate this trend would be floral sneakers (now that I said that, I totally need a pair), floral bomber (can you tell what my favorite piece of clothing is lately? I NEED ALL THE BOMBERS), or a floral handbag (Kate Spade has a black + red roses collection that makes my heart skip a beat literally).
All these styles can be found at Filly Flair — one of my favorite clothing brands. I love reviewing their pieces because they are well-made, gorgeous and completely on-trend. All the links in this post go straight to their website so be sure to check out their newest styles!
These trends are literally SO versatile and easy to style that there is NO way you won’t be able to incorporate them in SOME way into your closet. You probably even already have some of these trends sitting in your closet right now — you’ve been on trend and didn’t even know it.
While I am ALWAYS ready to shop ’til I drop when it comes to my closet, sometimes my wallet says “plz stop” and I need to dig around in my closet + drawers to find ways to reuse what I’ve already got. I know lots of you feel the same (because honestly — who can afford to drop the big bucks every other week?).
Have you been following along with NYFW??? What trends have you been seeing that you are obsessed with? Besides the three I mentioned, I am also totally digging the glitter trend that seems to be making some waves…
Well, now I’m off to more brand meetings, launch parties and shows. Be sure to watch Erica & I’s instastories to see our adventures today (mine are HERE and here are Erica’s).
