COLOR ME MAUVE MIST.
Pastels are having a moment – especially the blush pinks and dusty blues.

 

 

 
 
 

MINI ME AND YOU.
The season's IT BAG is a mini!
The cross-body is the trendiest of the
minis (and the most functional!).

 

 

 
 
 

IT'S EVERYWHERE.
IT'S EVERYWHERE.

Trends evolve from the runway, from
social media/bloggers,and street style. Photos from events like Coachella and
Art Basel create a global fashion zeitgeist. Also, movies and TV shows like Mad Men,
Revenge and House of

 

 

 
 
 

MAN UP!
Menswear prints are everywhere: houndstooth, herringbone, tweeds,
plaids, and checks add a dapper
sartorial touch to our wardrobes.

 

 

 
 
 

"PET ME."
Furs, fringe, haircalf and skins -- novelty meets luxury.

 

 

 
 
 

LEATHER PLAYS NICE.
Leather is getting downright charming, making appearances on everything from sweet little dresses to slouchy sweatshirts to knife print skirts. (But, never fear: the biker jacket remains strong!)

 

 

 
 
 

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE.
Evolved daytime sportswear: effortless....Jogger pants and "elevated" sweatshirts are key items that have morphed activewear into everyday, all-the-time wear. Comfortable yet fashionable outfits that go from gym to lunch and back again.

 

 

 
 
 

CROWN JEWELS / ROYAL FLUSH.
The predominance of the color RED bleeds luxury. Czarina meets folkloric charm: embroidered floral motifs, luxe fabrics in fur and velvet, heavy golds, and rich stones.

 

 

 
 
 

QUEEN FOR A DAY.
Black and gold - whether jewelry, handbags, scarves, or ready-to-wear.

 

 

 
 
 

POP ART.
Cartoon graphics, comic books, graffiti, pop culture, kitsch, slang, and art are the images that define the latest interpretation of fashion whimsy. A visual POW!!!

 

 

 
 
 

THE LACE IS ON.
Whether cutwork, crochet or eyelet, this ancient handiwork can still be counted on to take you from "baptism to funeral."

 

 

 
 
 

PRINT MEDLEY.
Skulls, owls, flowers, paisley, plaids, leaves, and animal prints are on everything from skinny jeans to wool coat. Watch for more than one print on the same garment: pattern play!

 

 

 
 
 

HIGH-LOW HEMS.
A metaphor for the stock market's fluctuations? Full, below-the-knee, and midcalf skirts are a big story.

 

 

 
 
 

KNITTING PRETTY.
Textured weaves, patchwork, and contrast sleeves are techniques that make fall's knits a visual (and tactile) feast. Kitschy graphics and silly statements add a sense of humor to fall sweaters. Crop tops scream TREND.

 

 

 
 
 

LEGGINGS ARE THE NEW JEAN.
Maybe yes, maybe no. Boot cut, boyfriend, and skinny jeans are here to stay. Iconic American.

 

 

 
 
 

POLAR VORTEX.
Outerwear rules! Designers mix furs and pony hair as add-ins; tartans and plaids; boiled wools and luxurious double-face fabrics in cocoon and boxy silhouettes. But the GLAM PUFFER steals the show! Glam puffers are being referred to as The New Elegance.

 

 

 
 
 

TWINKLE TWINKLE.
Novelty touches define this season's jewelry – modern layers of pearls and a feeling for fringe done in various ways, from metal to leather to silk.
• Stunning crystal floral necklaces.
• Art Deco statement cuffs encrusted in crystals.
• Geometric shapes.
• Lacy metals, black chains, and jet beads.
• From slinky snake and cobra chains to edgy links, chains in all shades of metal are the ultimate fashion connectors.
• Woven together or sewn down to leather or fabric backs, beaded necklaces go boho chic.
