Trussardi

Runway- Trussardi F 15

After a weekend spent in Wilmington, North Carolina, I’m excited to dig back into this weekend’s runway shows.  Trussardi‘s Fall 2015 collection showed in Milan, kicking off the beginning of March in luxe style.  Calling all jumpsuits to the front!  These two looks command so much, through one simple garment.  They convey power, edginess, glamour and sex appeal.  Each look in the collection was beautifully tailored, relying on chic princess seam details and over-sized yet perfectly proportioned styling.  The mixture of fabrics were rich, working well together with everything, cue the fur, leather and knits.  I’m all for an androgynous collection that speaks to a woman’s body.  More fashion week to come!

Anteprima

Runway- Anteprima F 15

Milan Fashion Week kicked off earlier this week, as London Fashion Week was wrapping up.  Anteprima‘s Fall 2015 collection was one to be noted.  The runway was drapped with an assortment of shin-sweeping lengths of knit, tweed and sheer fabrics.  Each garment was beautifully crafted to accentuate the woman’s body, while still managing to incorporate a relaxed feeling.  The woman wearing this turtle-neck adorned collection is regal, confident and ready to make a statement.  A burst of large floral prints created a romantic side to the mostly minimalistic vibe.  The most impactful pieces in the collection were the capes and coats.  The lengths were long and free-flowing; while some even conveyed a more artistic feeling, utilizing an off the shoulder, asymmetrical shape.  I’m totally swooning over these two monochromatic looks, and those velvety heels!  More MFW to come next week.

Would you wear this long-lengthed silhouette?

Casually cold

A 1

Baby, it’s cold outside.  Today, we’re welcoming in a new coating of snow to DC no thanks go home.  I’ve had enough with heavy coats, boots and scarves.  My look was inspired by the idea of casual layers that provide warmth in an unexpected form.  I love layers of neutrals that create depth and color without needing a statement color to speak for the look.  Of course, I’m all about the pop-of-color through my nails.  Leave your boots in the closet today and try on a more playful shoe.

*To be noted: I don’t actually wear shoes with laces, so these are a baffling concept of their own.

He dreams of spring

Everything- he dreams of spring W 15

We’ve just about had enough winter weather already, and then some.  It’s time to start preparing for spring by working transitional pieces into your wardrobe; they will carry you from winter to spring and into summer seasons.  Color is a great way to transition the wardrobe.  While the weather is still temperamental and cold, start incorporating colors that speak to the sunny, warmer months– cue the vivid blues, soft yellows and browns.  Luxurious brown leathers will set the tone for a sophisticated, yet relaxed look.  Primary colors, such as blue, yellow and red, also hold a refined feel while still being able to engage the eyes for a refreshing change.  Here are a few of my favorite looks for menswear this spring.  Now, let’s pray for more spring weather!

What’s your go-to spring season color?

Pringle of Scotland

Runway- Pringle of Scotland W 15

London Fashion Week is bringing the richest of fabrics to the Fall 2015 runways.  This year, Pringle of Scotland is celebrating their 200th year anniversary.  The brand was started as a knitwear company and over the years has continued to build upon and grow into so much more.  This season’s looks were rich, luxurious and full of depth.  An abundance of monochromatic outfits conveyed a purely minimalistic feel.  This collection is a testament to show how well-crafted knits can merge into the luxury market with the right fabrics, colors and style.  Sign me up for this woven-knit vest.  More fashion week to come.

Which Pringle of Scotland look would you love to wear?

2015 Oscars

Everything- Oscars 2015 Red Carpet 1

Last night, the red carpet was sparkling at the 87th Academy Awards.  The most prominent trend on the red carpet was in the form of a lack of color.  Vivid white and creamy nude gowns called for all-eyes-on-them.  Keeping with softer color palette, an assortment of golden yellow and cheeky pink gowns also stole a place on the best dressed list.  And as always, a classy black dress is too good not to pass up.  Embellished looks were glistening on the red carpet.  With everything from hand beading to a 6000+ pearl adorned gown, the designers were tastefully showing off their couture skills.  As much as the gowns really set the tone for the look, the finishing details will make or break the outfit on the best dressed list.  Statement earrings and cocktail rings were the trending accessories for the evening.  On the beauty forefront, the deep side part and a bold red lips are a must-do this season.  For the mens on the red carpet, it was simply a night to wear blue.  From a dusty blue to a bold navy, the crisp tuxedos were rich in color.  With that being said, the Oscars are the place to leave a statement.
