Another timeless trend that emerged during this cycle of Fashion Weeks was a love for the color brown in its entire spectrum — from dark chocolate to mocha to buttery honey to creamy camel. I’ve always been drawn to this calming, grounded palette, so I’m pretty pleased to see it come around once again.
Fashion’s passion for anything animal print is showing no signs of slowing down. From leopard to tiger to zebra to snake, there’s a species (or two or…) for you. I love them all. But I’m particularly partial to snake at the moment, and this silky snakeprint blouse checked all the boxes.
New York Fashion Week came and went once again. My closest brush to its spotlight was long ago in the early 80s when I walked in one show. This year? I wasn’t invited to any shows, which were by and large panned by most fashion critics. But I did love seeing all the street style — some of it inspiring, some outlandish. All in all, I was feeling the need to step a bit out of my comfort zone. Perhaps forego my usual flats in favor of some heels. I’d also recently learned that my vision has actually improved, so I would need new prescription glasses. No better time than now to try out some pretty fashion-forward sunnies and see just how I felt about going bolder, bigger. The answer? I’m not sure they are really “me.” But I did get a kick out of trying out a new look, even for just one day.
