Fall/Winter’s Must Have Print

Buffalo checks, plaids, and even the typically “summer” print of gingham have become the must have print for Fall/Winter 2017.

Designers incorporated the prints in just about every form on the runways from tailored suiting to oversized slouchy blazers, wide leg trousers, dresses, booties and bags but the magic truly happened when the prints were combined.

At TOD’s there was an oh so British blend of plaid topcoats layered upon buffalo check sweater dresses, at Burberry there were cozy oversized buffalo check coats with contrasting tone on tone gingham arms and at Tory Burch flouncy school girl plaid skirts paired with abstract plaid oversized sweaters created a must-have Fall look.

How do you take this Fall/Winter must-have print trend from runway to reality?

Masterfully mixing prints is intimidating enough, let alone mixing the same print but I have a couple of tricks for making print mash-ups a no-brainer.

  1. Mix the scale and size of the patterns. The same print in different sizes will pair well together, regardless of color scheme.
  2. Have at Least One Color in Common. Basically if you have two prints that share one color that will bring the look together.

It’s seriously that easy.

Right now I’m Obsessed with Buffalo Checks. To me there is something so perfect about them. This quintessential lumber jack print has a rugged, downtown vibe for a cool, new take on the now classic plaid shirt.  So here’s a little demonstration of print mixing with two Buffalo checks.

Whether you wear the trend alone or mixed into a fun pattern play of combinations you can’t go wrong with checks this season.

Stylist’s Tip: I love pairing necklaces with collared shirts but sometimes I have to fuss with the length of the necklace using a twist tie to get it just right.  I finally discovered the PERFECT adjustable necklace!  Kendra Scott uses adjustable sliding bead closures on their necklaces which means you can slide the bead to create whatever length you want!

Just a Dash of Metallics

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends

Designers brought out the Heavy Metal for the Fall 2017 shows.

Metallics were present in everything from bedazzled retro disco-ball boots at Saint Laurent to futuristic space-girl ensembles at Chanel and Miu Miu making the message clear, Fall 2017 is the Time to Shine!

As is often the case, runway looks don’t exactly translate easily to street looks. If you’re not ready to go full mylar balloon jumpsuit  a la Comme des Garcons (and lets face it who is) then opt for pops of silver as opposed to blinging it out head-to-toe.

My advise is to play with metallic accents before you go full-on astronaut with the metallic trend.

A silver bag or glittery boots are a safe way to guild your look this season.  Try pairing a fun metallic jacket or bag with a basic tee and jeans then work your way up to incorporating more bold statement making metallic pieces.

Silver will liven up the simplest of outfits or will work as a neutral when paired with loud prints or bold primary colors.  Just be careful to make sure your metallic pieces look luxe and not cheap.  Faux silver leather and some fast fashion liquid silver pieces can look tacky rather than trendy.

Shine on!
