NYFW 2018 STYLE TRENDS: RAINBOW BRIGHTS & ROMANTICALLY RUFFLED

As a designer & trend hunter, part of my job it to keep up on all of the latest & emerging fashion trends and to be able to translate the styling, colors, fabrics & details (a year ahead of time) into different categories to create new & exciting styles that people will love to wear & want to buy. Sounds simple, but it’s not always that easy…. and like much in life, timing is everything….
All in all, it’s so exciting & inspiring when the new collections come out and all of the top designers show there visions, hard work & creative craftsmanship to the world.
This season I’m loving……
FAUX FUR & RAINBOW BRIGHTS

Explore all the colors of the rainbow for the Fall 18 season with bright & bold COLOR in coats, tops & dresses…..you’ll want to GO BOLD or go home in these fantastic new styles that make a strong & confident statement. The overall feeling was very optimistic, happy & inclusive! I love color, especially during the fall/ winter season.

The Look #12: “Studs n’ Roses”

The romantic look continues for fall 2016, this time adding an edge with washed out & ripped denim, metallic rock studs, leather jackets & lace tops. The classic black Moto jacket & simple denim have been adorned with bold rose print embroidery & silver studs….

For a play on contrasts, combine a ruffled lace blouse with a studded jacket and ripped jeans, or a flowing rose print with a rock n roll jacket. Combining lace with studs takes a sweet feminine look over the edge and into the dark side….

A little bit retro, a little bit 80’s & a little bit rock star….the latest look is “Studs N’ Roses”

THE LOOK: SEXY. CASUAL. COOL
