New York Fashion Week - Fall 2014

All six looks above are from Rebecca Minkoff. I love the variation of her collection this year from cool girl bold plaid and metallics to soft pastel feminine hues.
I was intrigued by watching this collection by Mathieu Mirano. He is a young, relatively new designer and as you can see from several of his looks above, I think he is one to watch.

I know right now we are all focused on Spring and starting to put together our warm weather looks but last week in New York it was all about Fall 2014. Designers showed their collections while editors, buyers and bloggers watched with excited anticipation of what's to come! I have to admit, I'm a Fall and Winter kind of girl, so this is always my favorite fashion week. There is something about cozy sweaters, rich colors, leather jackets, boots and metallics that makes you want to get all dressed up. So even though you may want to wait until August to think about buying sweaters and coats for next season, now is a great time to purchase pieces on sale that will be on trend in the Fall!

As I watched some of the shows and looked back at pictures of the ones I missed, the word that kept coming to mind was glamour. From bold embellishments and metallics to fur and feathers, designers seemed to lean towards a disco for daytime look. There were still plenty of graphic prints, plaid, colorblocking, rich colors, leather and lace from seasons in the past. Some of the new trends were fringe on clothing and accessories, oversized coats and capes and pastels in soft blues and pinks. A couple of colors that I saw repeated in many shows were caramel and berry. Mules will not only be on trend for Spring but will also carry into Fall. I loved seeing the concept of a purse-muff, a purse that doubles as a hand warmer, from both Tory Burch and BCBG. 

Now is the time to buy these looks on sale for next season! As stores are clearancing Winter merchandise keep these trends in mind to get the look for less. Also as you are shopping for Spring, remember that there are items that could translate from Spring and Summer to Fall and Winter. Pastels and Mules are two big trends to invest in to get you through all of the seasons. 

Dreaming of the glamour that is to come this Fall is going to have to help get me through the next six months of hot weather here in Florida. What is your favorite season and what trends are you most looking forward to in the Fall?
