The results from New York Fashion Week are in, and the biggest bag trend off the Spring ’16 runway is definitely the saddle bag. It’s the perfectly relaxed counterpart to the season’s loose silhouettes, sweetly lacy accents, and pajama-reminiscent looks.
Pairing stripes with more stripes is an endeavor that not every Snob could pull off, but this is Olivia Palermo, front row fixture extraordinaire, and it’s not her first time dressing outside the lines – or in this case, in them. Personally, I love the look, even with mismatched stripes.
School may be out for summer, but the schoolgirl look most certainly is not and the number one student in the style is the lovely Emmy Rossum. As is always the case with these kinds of outfits, a sense of grown-up sophistication is required…
Judging by the ice and slush coating the streets, I think it’s safe to say we’re not in Dallas anymore. Some may say these freezing NYC temps make dressing for Fashion Week difficult, but I prefer to think of it as a challenge (mostly because that allows me feel better about the fact that it’s freezing!).
Not all dots are created equal. Harsh as it may sound, some polka dots are simply way better than others. I always love a good spotty-dotty print, but when the pattern is elevated thanks to some artistic abstraction, a harmonious blending of multiple prints, or an altogether unexpected feel, it’s enough to make me crave the classic motif all over again.
We may want every new bag that hits the market, but the fact of the matter is that we couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) actually buy every single one. It’s all about picking and choosing. While the occasional trendy piece is a justified indulgence, what you really want to invest in are the classics.
What’s more fun than playing dress up? I can’t think of a single thing, especially after I partnered with Ralph Lauren to fulfill my holiday wish list.
