Can you believe we’re already into the fall season? Well, technically, it’s still summer for us here in San Diego. It is cooling down, though, which makes me very excited to put on cozy sweats, pants, and knee high boots. I can’t even remember the last time I put on a pair of jeans.
Fall fashion for the New York fashion world has been there and done that, though. They’re off thinking about the spring season. I don’t keep up with New York Fashion Week as intently as I did 10 years ago when I would write 5 posts a day for The Runway Scoop (sadly, the blog no longer exists), but there are still a few fashion bloggers and designers I stalk to get my New York Fashion Week fix.
One fashion insider who has been on my must-watch list for awhile is Eva Chen. She used to be the editor for Lucky Magazine, but is now the head of fashion partnerships for Instagram. This past week I’ve been living vicariously through Eva via her Instagram stories where she’s attended all the noteworthy shows and given us an inside peek at her everyday musings.
Watching the shows through Eva’s phone camera lens, I jotted down a few notes that led me to believe what I’ve always believed about fashion and fashion trends: that anything goes and there are no rules.
I wish I was bold enough to mix prints. If you can wear snakeskin with floral print and gingham in one outfit, more power to you. This show reminded me that it’s OK to step out of your comfort zone and just have fun with your fashion.
Unapologetic flowy and showy skirts. Everyone seems to have tossed out the skinny jean and replaced it with full dresses and skirts. Volume and flow actually seem to be on many designers minds for spring.
I haven’t been paying much attention to this brand lately. Since when did quirky rock-n-roll style become a part of their story?
Statement earrings have gone to the next level is all I have to say…
