Fall 2014 Trend Guide

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Autumn is the Party Season and during this three-month soiree, the hors d’oeuvres include color, class, and edgy ensembles. Here’s what to wear when the Weather cools and we can FINALLY break out some luxurious layers. 

Fall 2014 Trend Guide

1. Get Cozy in Color

Fur, baby, fur! In a world where leather isn’t so frowned upon, we need to move on past the whole “fur is mean” thing. As Karl Lagerfeld says, “stressing over fur as a topic of issue is just childish.” I almost think fur is a requirement for fall, I think the leaves change colors when they sense the cozy plush being pulled from winter closets (or in Carrie Bradshaw’s case- the oven) everywhere. Fur doesn’t have to be so traditional- it could be modern and fun and colorful.

2. Vibrating Edges

Two colors “vibrate” because they are opposite hues on the color wheel.  Both colors are equal in value, equal in intensity, but opposite in hue. This combination will result in this badass, ironically edgy.

3. Let’s Knit Together

Knit took over everything this season. Fall 2014 will forever be known as the season of knit. I mean, why not? There’s a certain sense of beauty and seemingly unattainable elegance when knit is styled perfectly. Whether it’s a daringly form-fitting dress from Lanvin to an androgynous head to toe knit ensemble from Haider Ackerman or something simple but pristine like a nice, whimsical sweater from Nina Ricci.

4. Let our Ensemble Dance

Fashion takes over Electronic Dance Music. Or is it that EDM takes over fashion? Fashion and music have always been BFF’s. I mean have you heard of Lady Gaga and Kanye? But this season, it doesn’t seem like music is wearing fashion, it is that fashion is wearing music.

Model Monday: Lindsey Wixson

My favorite model at the moment is Lindsey Wixson.  She’s been on the scene for a while, but ever since she chopped her long blond hair into a choppy mullet a few months ago she’s taken things to the next level!

At first, Lindsey’s big eyes and perfectly pouted lips led her towards the commercial side of high-fashion modeling; every editorial she was in featured her with brightly painted lips and/or winking.  Now that she’s got an edgy haircut she’s getting placed in edgier editorials, and it’s awesome.  We’ve even seen some makeup-free shots of Lindsey, which are unbelievably gorgeous.

She’s been making the rounds at Fashion Month, mostly in Milan, modeling for Pucci, Versace, Moschino, and more.  She’s such a chameleon: sometimes I don’t even recognize her!  Such was the case at Moschino, where she donned a pixie wig and closed the show in Jeremy Scott’s soon-to-be-infamous “Nutrition Facts” gown.

I can’t wait to see what Lindsey does in Paris!
