Wearable Trends for Fall/ Winter 2011

27 Oct

Runway looks always amaze me, but sometimes even the “ready to wear” collections are intimidating & constantly have me wondering how anyone on the street can pull them off. However, this fall/ winter is truly about RTW pieces & I’m sincerely thankful for that!

J Brand Jeans

Leather is all the rage for this season (see my 2nd look from Versace for H&M to see how I’ll be wearing the trend) but it’s an intimidating fabric & if you’re not comfortable & confident in what you’re wearing, then what’s the point? An easy compromise is the waxed jean. Shiny like leather in comparable hues with a more relaxed fit. A great way to balance out the rocker look of a waxed jean (or leather) is to pair with a feminine top like a tie-neck blouse and heels (J Brand Jeans 12″ Pencil Wax Coated in Venom from Revolve Clothing– $198.00).

Trouve

Speaking of tie-neck blouses, I am loving this super wearable look for fall. It’s flirty, feminine, & as stated above, would look fabulous over a pair of leather pants or waxed jeans. These blouses are usually loose-fitting so pairing with a skinny bottom is definitely recommended (Trouve Tie Front Top from Nordstrom– $88.00).

Diane von Furstenberg

As you probably know by now, jewel-tones are big this season. I am a big fan of this trend as it will help counteract all of the blacks and browns we are usually religious about wearing during the chillier months. One of my favorite jewel-tones is mustard. The rich golden hue provided by this color is so complimentary to many skin tones and would look great paired with tights if you’re looking at dresses such as the DVF design above (Diane von Furstenberg Issie Sleeveless Satin Dress from Neiman Marcus– $425.00).

Rebecca Taylor

Lace and lace detailing almost overtook the runways at NYFW for Fall/ Winter 2011. This trend is incredibly easy to wear & is so feminine that even the smallest touch of lace detail can add the most romantic of feels. Just like the tie blouse, I’d recommend pairing the uber-feminine trend with something a bit edgier like a leather jacket or spiked heels (Rebecca Taylor Romantic Lace Blouse from Bloomingdale’s– $315.00).

Alice + Olivia

Polka-dots have a bad reputation for being childish but this season they’re anything but! Polka-dot minis, blouses & dresses are everywhere & are so fun to wear. I bought this Alice + Olivia dress for the summer time but am easily going to transfer it into my fall wardrobe with a cute cropped jacket, tights & booties. The best thing about re-using your summer wear is saving money while adding to your Fall/ Winter closet, or, if you’re just purchasing, it’s on SALE, which saves you money as well (Alice + Olivia Polka-Dot Silk Dress from Neiman Marcuswas $297.00; now– $178.00)!

The Wall Street Journal said Ready to Wear is the new Couture.  Whether or not you agree, it’s definitely refreshing to have so many RTW pieces in-trend for this season.

Denim, denim, DENIM!

24 Oct

In honor of Bergdorf Goodman’s Denim Week, I decided to do a write up on the fashion staple that’s appropriate for ALL seasons: DENIM!

I feel pretty confident in stating that jeans are an important part of most people’s wardrobes. And how could they not be? Whether you’re into the uber trendy jewel-toned hues or love the casual look a great pair of jeans provides is up to you, but here’s this season’s most sought-after denim (all from Bergdorf’s):

J Brand Jeans

I love the look of a red jean for this season & I cannot get enough of the high-quality, super comfy denim that J Brand provides. Everything from the cut to the wash in these jeans is perfect for this season & a lot of fun to wear (J Brand Jeans 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Twill Jeans in Black Cherry from Bergdorf Goodman- $176.00). Tip: Don’t go overboard with the rest of your ensemble when sporting any jewel-toned jeans. Keep the top & shoes neutral to avoid looking too trendy.

J Brand Jeans

Is my obsession with J Brand noticeable yet? These truly are the best jeans for their fit, comfort level & durability & with the over-sized look of sweaters, coats and tops in general we’re seeing, it’s important to have a truly great-fitting skinny jean this season. When pairing a flowy top with denim, make sure to choose a skinny cut to balance each other out & add a sexy silhouette your figure (J Brand Jeans 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Twill Jeans in Ignite from Bergdorf Goodman- $191.00).

Citizens of Humanity

While skinny jeans and flares seem to cycle when they’re “in style” or out, a good boot-cut is always flattering & always in! Their versatility is undeniable & they’re a universally good cut for anyone regardless of size or shape (Citizens of Humanity Kelly Odyssey Boot-Cut Jeans from Bergdorf Goodman- $198.00). Editor’s Note: I had to put “in style” in quotations because I’m a firm believer that anything is “in style” at ANY time, as long as it’s flattering on you! It’s good to branch out & try new trends, but the best trend is wearing what works best for you personally.

Joe's Jeans

I sincerely love the careless effort look of a slightly destroyed jean on someone in their 20’s. It’s casual, sexy, fun & effortless to pull off. Pair with a cute t-shirt & heels for happy hour or throw on to run errands. Either way, you’ll look stylish and casual and be comfortable all day (Joe’s Jeans Cigarette Patricia Destroyed Jeans from Bergdorf Goodman- $172.00).

As with ALL looks, it’s important to stay confident & be comfortable in what you’re wearing. I truly believe denim provides that. Check out Bergdorf Goodman for all these styles & more.
