One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol’ florals. And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them — palm prints are already everywhere in stores, so what are you waiting for?
Nearly every day I’m wearing something on my person that came from J. Crew. I am a disciple; an unofficial, uncompensated walking advertisement; a diehard fan of their toothpick jeans, Capri flip-flops, Everly pumps and assorted overpriced sweatshirts that I refuse to buy unless they’re on sale. And come spring, I will no doubt be adding at least a handful of the items shown as part of the brand’s NYFW collection. Spoiler alert: Tight, constricting fabrics and silhouettes are out, and baggy — baggy shorts, baggy shirts, baggy jackets — are IN.
Hey guys, I’m off to Cinque Terre in Italy and all I’m bringing with me is an Italian dictionary, a camera and a suitcase full of all the clothes from Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Ciao, prometto di scrivere!
Just kidding. I’m not going to Cinque Terre and I certainly don’t have a suitcase full of Minkoff’s silky pastel dresses and tanks or airy striped shirts and skirts. But a girl can dream. Check out some of my faves from the collection below!
Rachel Comey consistently makes clothes for the most glamorous arts and crafts teacher you’ve ever met in your life. Her latest collection shown at NYFW is no exception. Tons of volume — one can’t be too encumbered when in the midst of a macrame project! — a mixture of neutrals and nature-plucked colors (I love the red and purple moments, especially), and fabric edges left raw rather than perfectly hemmed, like her muse got fed up and went at them with a pair of sheers. Wearing clothes like this in real life is all about proportions. A voluminous swing dress works best at a mini length with heels — heeled clogs, preferably. Check out some of my fave pieces from Rachel Comey’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection below!
While I love clothes, spend way too much time pinning shit I cannot afford on Pinterest and love assembling fake outfits in Photoshop for regular style features like One Times Three and Fashion Math, I do not consider myself a fashion person. That’s probably why writing about my favorite shows at New York Fashion Week always results in me using and abusing the English language because I don’t know how to do so in a way that doesn’t sound ridiculous. For example, the headline on this post about Jill Stuart’s runway show — “[a] feminine take on ’70s utilitarian cool.” I know what I mean – that the collection had some crunchy, granola, ’70s vibes, with both an air of practicality and femininity to the clothing — but goddamn is it hard to briefly capture in a way that doesn’t sound outrageously stupid. So I decided to embrace it. Please enjoy my dumb headline above and the awesome clothes from Jill Stuart’s spring/summer 2015 runway collection below!
The only thing I love more than a bold print is multiple bold prints worn together, dammit! That’s why I’m so hot for many of the looks shown at Tracy Reese’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show. Reese is known for embracing bright colors and standout fabrics, but I absolutely loved how she didn’t hold back on mixing foliage prints with cheetah spots and large florals. And of course, there were plenty of her adorable trademark frocks and lots of sophisticated black to round things out. Click through the gallery below to see some of my faves…
