Fall

For all those currently mourning the loss of summer and cursing the autumnal equinox this evening, keep this in mind: Fall is pretty awesome. Just think about it: You won’t feel like you’re melting on your walk to the bodega, fall clothes rule (hello layers), you can leave that handheld spray/fan water bottle contraption at home, fall clothes rule (cozy cardigans + long sleeves), there is more to life than the beach (as much as it pains me to say), and did I mention…fall clothes r u l e? At the forefront of awesome fall collections is indie UK label Motel. For their autumn ’14 lookbook, the brand took their totally awesome collection on a woodland retreat. And even though you’d never expect to pack printed minis, metallic foil slips, textured gothic cardigans, and leopard trousers for a weekend camping excursion, you have to admit that it somehow works. Chalk it up to the collection’s versatility, or the ’90s-inspired styling, but we’re ready to relive our Girl Scouts days, ankle boots, chokers, and minis in tow.   Get a first look in the gallery, complete with styling tips by designer Hannah Parker. Then shop the looks here.

“Hi guys! Giza here with the latest in NYFW style and trends. I’ve been scoping out the scene in Manhattan for the past week. Obviously, all of the S/S’ 15 styles are stunning, but I’ve spotted a few trends on the street that are sure to be pretty major this upcoming season. I’ve got all of the details for you in this week’s NYFW Recap:

 

Crazy prints

Designers weren’t holding back this season in the print department. Crazy prints, vibrant colors… Um hello, seventies. We’ve missed you. I’m not talking a hint of a print here and there. No. Full on head-to-toe psychedelic floral. I’m obsessed.

Fringe

Are you going through Coachella withdrawal? Don’t worry. April will be here before you know it. In the meantime, designers are giving you your fringe fix by way of awesome denim and leather jackets and suede bags. Fringe represents freedom and carelessness and passion. It’s no wonder we can’t seem to get enough these days.

Fishnet skirts

Gone are the days where fishnet only thrived through the cheeky little tights you wore with your favorite little minis. Fishnets are back in a new way this season. Say hello to the fishnet skirt. Designers are considerate of the sexy reputation that fishnets have attained over the year. Try pairing yours with a classy little button up top, sandals, and a topknot for an effortlessly chic look.

Midriff

The midriff trend is still going strong. I don’t think we’ll be mourning the death of crop tops any time soon. NYFW was littered with both models and the fashion-inclined alike baring their summer bods by way of tiny tops and bold bralettes. For SS ’15, swap your high-wasted shorts and skirts for classic mid-rise denim.

Beiges

Amidst all of the drama and eccentricities of fashion week, we can all find comfort in the fact that beige is still totally in. Not up for flashy prints and daring colors. It’s fine. Beige is still a safe space for you to comfortably channel your inner fashion savant. Timeless trench coats and sleek skirts are only a few of the ways that you can bring beige back in your spring and summer wardrobes. Just kidding about the whole “back” bit. Beige never truly went anywhere to begin with.

 

This NYFW was complete madness, I was running all over the place. Different parties, events, shows, and presentations. I am excited to share with you some of the experience!”

Hi fashionistas! Giza here with the latest in NYFW style and trends. I’ve been scoping out the scene in Manhattan for the past week. Obviously, all of the S/S ’15 styles are stunning, but I’ve spotted a few trends that are sure to be pretty huge this upcoming season. I’ve got all of the details for you in this week’s NYFW Recap.

My favorite would have to be this netting trend. Rodarte killed it with their net dresses and skirts; but they definitely weren’t the only ones thinking netting this season!

Another trend that I have always been a fan of are the trenches and menswear-esqe coats. I’m a sucker for when a womenswear line adds a menswear twist.

Beiges and neutrals were totally in for this season. I don’t often venture into the bold world of color so this was right up my alley.

A style that I am familiar with popped up quite a bit on the runway, the culotte. Culottes are pretty much under the knee, usually flowy, shorts that might look like a skirt from afar. There were some designers that executed it in a very modern way.

Patterned prints were a must for designers.  This season without fail, bold patterns were a big statement.

When you think of spring pastels tend to come to mind, and without a doubt- pastels were all over the runway. I believe that Elizabeth and James did it best!

Again, I’m a sucker for a menswear twist.  I loved it when trousers made repeat appearances!

I’m all for a good pair of heels but when I saw that flats and “flatforms” (which I have a love-hate relationship with) were everywhere, a part of me exploded with happiness. Check out how Coach and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela did flatforms, not bad!

When done right ruffles, frills, and pleats can drive a girl wild. Juan Carlos Obando did it so well!

I love pushing boundaries; so when I saw how Jason Wu used sheers, I got pretty inspired!  Check it out for yourself but be careful how you do it.  It takes some finesse for sure.

Last but not least, flawy fabrics were pretty major. I have to admit that when I wear anything even the slightest bit flowy I immediately feel majestic and mythical. I would wear Juan Carlos Obando’s flowy look every chance I get!

Stay tuned for Part 2 later this week!  I’ll be covering all of the most coveted NYFW street style trends- including my own!
