The word on the street is that some of you – I won’t name names – have been craving fashion. I used to do these posts all the time, and lately they’ve sort of fallen to the wayside. Largely because…well, I’m obsessed with food. I have limited time, and I cook so much that I constantly have recipes backed up to share with you, so that’s the reason. But you must know – I die for fashion. Or better yet, I live for fashion. And what better time than fall to get back into the swing of things? So, I’ve taken the time to weed out my favorite trends for fall this year. I hope you enjoy.
Let me begin by saying that I, for one, am happy that it’s not quite time to put away the lace, the brights, maxi skirts, the color red (please see the always-stunning Blake Lively to the right, in Marchesa, showing off one of my favorite looks of the collection), or the 70s – though the 60s are competing for the limelight in a big way, and I’m not arguing with that, either.
I’ve been into polka dots for a hot minute now, the bigger the better, and I’m liking the sweater dress in a maxi shape, though much of what I saw was maxi skirts with hugh, chunky knits on top – which is a look that, for me, may or may not be wearable…I haven’t yet decided. I’m a sucker for legs, whether it’s someone else’s or showing my own, so it’s no surprise that I loved the super-high slits seen pretty much everywhere. Plaid is lingering, but this time playing up on the Tartan aspect – seen many places, but the red and blue pattern done at Thakoon is one of the most memorable. Choker necklaces? A nod to the 90s, and perhaps one of the only trends from that era I’d like to see again, because this time it’s being done right.
