Part II in my New York Fashion Week recap. Click back to Part I for more chic styles that have been remixed and reinvigorated for the runway.
These wardrobe essentials aren’t going anywhere and their style has evolved quite nicely with time – from 80s shoulder pads to clean and classic lines from Jason Wu and funky, laid-back prints a la Charlotte Ronson (though I don’t recommend you wear that to the office).
Asymmetrical hemlines are fabulous because they’re flattering on just about every figure. BCBG Max Azria keeps it fun in a color-blocked dress while Richard Chai mixes it up in a dazzling asymmetrical top paired with a striped asymmetrical midi skirt.
The most important note to take from this trend is to pick pieces that are western-inspired to add touches to your outfit, whether it’s a tan suede coat Alexander Wang (right) style or a cowboy hat from Cushnie et Ochs (left). With too much western wear in one outfit, you may end up looking like you stepped out of a John Wayne film.
Red is a fabulous choice for fall because it fits right in with the rich color palette while bold enough to break up autumn neutrals, like black, grey, and beige. Go all out in the styles of Prabal Gurung and Dennis Basso or pick up a few bright accessories to make your fall ensemble pop.
