NYC Trend Watch
Last week during my stay in the Big Apple, I was able to attend some fashion shows and these are the trends of things to come for the New Year:
1. BOXY JACKET: To be worn with a fitted bottom (shorts or skinny jeans), a soft underpinning, and a chunky utilitarian shoe.
2. PLEATED SKIRT: Wear with a silk, flowy blouse, or a thin cashmere cardigan with soft sleeveless underpinning. Also add a feminine handbag, statement earrings, and a great d’Orsay pump.
3. PEPLUM TOP: A very classic 50’s silhouette that goes great with a straight slim skirt, or a cropped pant. For finishing touches, add chunky heels, or a strappy, heavy pump.
4. MAXI SKIRT: One of my favorites!!! Can be worn with a great denim button down, or a biker jacket with a slinky wife beater underneath. Buckle an oversized belt at your waist, and sling a cross-body bohemian bag over your shoulders. A gladiator sandal is the perfect finale to this ensemble!
