Trend Alert: Neon

Neons dominated the Spring 2019 runways with green, yellow and pink taking center stage, and now that summer is officially upon us, it’s time to give the neon trend a try. The neon trend has been kicking around since Fall 2018, but I completely understand that you may not have been inclined to sport neon…

Trend Alert: Bike Shorts

If wearing leggings beyond the gym weren’t controversial enough, what about their cropped counterpart – the bike short? Since last summer, bike shorts have been a bit of a thing (at least according to fashion girls), but given their likely passing popularity, I wasn’t quite ready to commit to the trend. Fast forward a few…

Trend Alert: Monochromatic Outfits – Red Edition

Fashion month has confirmed that the monochromatic outfit trend is still going strong (#yes!). From streetstyle to the runways – from neutrals to ultra-brights – “all (fill in your favorite color)” looks were everywhere this season. Monochromatic outfits are exactly what they sound like – wearing a full look composed of one color/hue and I’ve…

Trend Alert: Animal Prints

As a Brooklyn native, I’m naturally partial to animal prints – especially leopard – but the runways – from Tom Ford to Victoria Beckham to DVF – have officially made them a 2018 Trend. Animal prints will likely peak this Fall/Winter, but why not get ahead of the trend and start indulging your animal instincts…

Trend Alert: Bold Fruit Prints

Move over florals, there’s a new Summer motif in town.  Bring on the bold fruit prints! Now don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t get through Spring/Summer without a healthy does of florals, but who doesn’t love a fresh new trend to try.  So for all of you suffering from a case of floral fatigue, you’ll…

Trend Alert: Tie-Front Everything

From tops to dresses to jumpsuits, TIE-FRONT IS THE SILHOUETTE OF THE SEASON. I admit, tie-front pieces can be a little tricky  to wear (expect to go braless or master your stickies) and you’ll have to be willing to show a little extra skin (yes, we’re talking serious midriff exposure) to pull off the look,…

Trend Alert: The Sock Boot

I’m OBSESSED with SOCK BOOTS. They’ve been a thing since at least Spring 2017 (cue the  Balenciaga Knife Boots hitting the SS17 runway clip) and luckily for me, the trend is still going strong. What are they you ask?  Well, exactly what they sound like (I know, we all wish the trend sounded as sexy as…

Trend Alert: The Teddy Bear Coat

What do you ask is the “Teddy Bear Coat”?  Well, it’s this season’s IT COAT and must have for ensuring that your winter style is totally insta/pinterest-worthy.  A cousin of your beloved faux fur and perhaps a more subtle and versatile version of last year’s must have leopard coat, the super soft and fluffy Teddy Bear…

Trend Alert: The Wide Leg Trouser

This Spring, the super wide-leg trouser is the go-to pant silhouette.  Finally, a refreshing change from the super skinny pant silhouette, which I find so difficult to pull off due to my not so skinny, but rather athletic legs.  Back in the day, circa late 90’s/early 2000’s, I think these babies were better known as…
