If you've ever watched a single episode of Sex in the City, then you know that Carrie Bradshaw was (is?) the queen of fashion and New York. She loved a good statement piece almost as much as writing books about men.
It may come as a shock to some, but I've always been a huge fan of fashion. Growing up you would have never known that considering I mostly lived in sweats and walked around with wet hair… to me, it was swimmer chic.
Fast forward a few years and I moved to Capitol Hill… considered by many to be out of touch with what is fashionable. However, as I've grown as a blogger and gotten more into the wonderful fashion scene that DC does have (yes, there's more to all of us Washingtonians than a black pants suit), I really have started to break out of my fashion shell. I'm taking more risks and really paying attention to the trends. And that's exactly what New York Fashion Week is about. Establishing the trends for the new season.
One thing I noticed that's going to be a major focal point of the FW2015 scene, statement coats (looking at you BCBGMAXAZRIA). I mean they were everywhere. Not just a simple camel trench or navy cape. Nay! But the bright, colorful and sometimes tribal looking prints. I mean we all know I love a good statement coat, so to say I'm excited is an understatement.
Another trend I noticed that's going to be prevalent will be fringe. I saw fringe featured in quite a few shows… especially Rebecca Minkoff's. Can you say 70s?! Looks like quite a few details from that era are making their way back to fashion this year (still not sure how I feel about it).
At this point you're probably over hearing my ramblings, so we'll get on with it. I watched quite a few shows, scoured the internet for various designer presentations and of course stalked all the major brands, bloggers and Instagram accounts for updates. So here is just a taste of what's to come this fall/winter.
