This fall we’re falling back into the swinging 60s with short a-line dresses, knee-high boots, and bold graphic prints. Fashion always has a way of reverting on itself, and reinventing the old in a new way. This coming season we’ll be seeing classic mod styles with “modern” additions. Think more metallics, sparkling embellishments, and a diverse color palettes.

Every fashionista has heard the age-old rule that one shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. But why is this a rule, and more importantly, why should we listen? Rules are made to be broken after all, especially in fashion! Although you may not want to wear an all-white maxi dress with a big floppy straw hat, there are ways to work in white, all the way into next summer!
A white top never goes out of season! If you want to keep rocking those delicate eyelets and crochet-trimmed tops, add some fall color, and a dark blazer. Keep that white blazer out by pairing it with darker, black pieces.
Keep rocking those white jeans by pairing them with fall staples like flannel, and a pair of leather booties.
See? Wearing white after summer ends is easy!
Ah Fashion Week. The spring and summer shows of September are one of our favorite times of the year. The air is electrified, the energy is the chaos of a thousand Starbucks coffees, and the influence makes its way throughout New York City. If you’re lucky enough to be able to attend, here are a few tips to make it all go smoothly.
Always keep bandages, bobby pins, and other essentials in your bag. Many fashionistas favor sky-high heels over flats, and if you’re in that category, definitely bring some foot protection.
Stay hydrated! Running from show to show can be pretty tiring, and those glasses of champagne probably don’t help much either. Keep water handy at all times.
Remember a layering piece. Sometimes September can be remarkably cold, make a layering piece a part of your outfit to ensure that the only shivers you get will be inspiration-induced.
Don’t forget to put down your phone. So much of Fashion Week has become about capturing that first shot and being the first to post it on Instagram, but don’t forget to be present too! Watch that runway strut, take in the shapes, colors, sounds and energy. Trust us, there’s nothing like Fashion Week in the city, and you definitely want to be there for it.
The days are getting shorter, and the nights chillier. Soon we will have to unearth those fall pieces that lay dormant in our closets, and replace them with the crop tops and neons of summer. But not quite yet. There are a few ways to keep wearing your summer favorites past their “wear-by” date.
Keep it layered. Fall is all about layering! Add a jacket to that romper, a scarf to that tank top, and a cardigan to that sundress. Once you’ve added one layer, add another! Take a tip from the Olsen twins and pile it on!
Tights and dresses are a winning combo. Keep your legs warm, while still rocking your sundresses by pairing it with tights!
Bring on the boots. The easiest way to make any look more cold-weather appropriate is to add a pair of boots! Stow those sandals and think of all of the money you’ll be saving on pedicures.
Add interest with heavier materials. Remember that layering tip? When you’re layering, pick fabrics that contrast with the ones you wear in the summer. Add leather jacket to a light cotton dress to instantly transform it into a look that’s darker, edgier and perfect for fall.
When it comes to leather, even the tiniest detail in this luxurious material can elevate a piece from average to outstanding. Today we’re giving credence to one of our favorite materials used in one of our favorite ways because it’s not always about the main event. Sometimes the drama is in the details.
Outwear is perfect way to display leather accents! From a back of buttons to an understated trim, leather was made for the great outdoors.
Get flashy with leather elements on an embellished evening gown, like this one from Pucci. Leather adds edge to any look.
Great in small doses too, like as the shoulder on this adorable sweater. Comfy meets chic!
