Milan Fashion Week 2019: MENSWEAR vs WOMENswear silhouettes

comparisons from MILAN FASHION WEEK

Given that menswear elements are continuing to grace womenswear designs, we thought it would be visually interesting to highlight how they were reflected on the runways of Milan Fashion Week.

Blazers and Jackets : This year, Milan’s top designers presented a slew of must have blazers and jackets. We love that these layering pieces are so versatile and that they can be styled in many different ways beyond the office. For those who prefer a stronger more masculine look we recommend sticking with darker colors and oversized silhouettes. And for those who prefer a softer more feminine look try brighter hues in fabrics that drape and move with you.

Dresses and Skirts: The same can be said for skirts and dresses in regards to strong and masculine versus soft and feminine… Layering them with blazers and jackets is always a fashionable choice where you can manipulate the mood of your look through colors, shapes and textures.

Pants and Jumpsuits: It will be a sad day when jumpsuits are no longer in style so we are pleased that designers are still moving forward with these super comfortable and chic styles. Here, leather pants accentuate the strength of women, while, conversely, the softer materials highlight the beauty and softness of women.

London Fashion Week 2019: Style in our everyday wardrobe


London Fashion Week presented elegant styles that are wearable in your everyday wardrobe. Below are some highlights from Roland Mouret, Burberry and Vivienne Westwood.

These are our top picks from Roland Mouret’s collection. The dynamic patterns and colors of this ultrachic long coat will brighten up any look while adding an element of elegance from denim to evening wear. While Roland Mouret is finally delving into menswear (we’ve been waiting for this moment!) the black long coat is a great unisex addition to anyone’s closet, especially in this age of oversized man-tailored womenswear. Lastly, this stunning jacket will catch everyone’s eye. The beautifully classic combination of red and black coupled with impeccable draping never ceases to create a fresh look each season.

Burberry has always presented classically elegant designs in their collections and these two examples showcase the timeless and daily wearability of the brand. Their classic double breasted trench coat is a basic “must have” and is fresh season-after-season with cool design elements such as iridescent luxe fabrics. The incorporation of texturized pastel fabrics in an always sexy pencil skirt will light up any wardrobe.

Vivienne Westwood did not disappoint this season with staple pinstripes and plaid patterns adorning oversized and double breasted jackets as seen here. Not only do all of these elements work together to keep this brand on trend, they do so while maintaining a level of maturity and luxury - with a true Vivienne Westwood edge.

NYFW Spring 2017 - Day 3

Texture is the new accessory whether it be appliqués, fringe, knits or lace. These textures need no assistance in making a statement and regardless of the season, texture is a versatile way to add a twist to any outfit.  These four looks from Novis, Jason Wu, Akris and Tanya Taylor are my Day 3 runway favorites!

Style Tip: Be sure to keep accessories to a subtle minimum to avoid competing elements -- and looking over styled.

NYFW Spring 2017 - Day 2


During day 2 of NYFW, printed midi's owned the runway. Midi’s are a great staple piece for any occasion, they are so effortless, yet have the ability to give off a clean polished look.  I love these four midi's in particular, by Supima Design, Brock, Ulla Johnson and Marissa WebB -- the airy fabrics and soft prints evoke feelings of vintage femininity.

Style Tip: Take these midi's from day to night by layering on jewels that are as light in weight as they are in color so as to create a tone on tone shimmer.
