Wow what a week in NYC. The weather was beautiful…sunny & warm with zero humidity. Because of the not-to-hot, not-to-cold temps it was an anything goes kind of week for fashion. Shorts, skirts, jackets, jeans, sandals, boots, plaid, leather, lace, whites – a mixed bag for sure.
As the days passed however, a couple of trends were clear. There were two camps…the Bright & Bold and the Back to Basics.
This group embraced color & pattern from lips to toes. The brighter & the bolder the better – almost always mixed with a touch of black.
Accessories are key here – shoes and boots in color or black embellished with a little shine, bold handbags & always a bright mat lip.
Plaid – specifically red, black & white versions in everything from Jackets to Dresses – a little nod to the 80’s for sure.
This groups look was more simple & cool. Denim on Denim, tonal or a touch of camo for both men & women.
For the girls think Sexy Tomboy for the guys think just another day-in-the life of a cool boy with good taste in shoes and glasses.
I packed all Lucky Blues for the trip. Denim, chambray, blue leather, a couple vintage belts, great boots and jewels thinking ‘easy & under the fashionistas radar’ little did I know….
