Trend Report: Menswear

Credit 1, 2, 3 Designers decided to channel Annie Hall and dress women in menswear inspired ensembles for Spring. A perennial trend, there is simply nothing as sexy as a woman in a man’s clothing. In my opinion the masculinity just highlights the femininity of the wearer, and the kind of confidence needed to join the boys […]

Trend Report: Neon

Credit 1, 2, 3 For that futuristic wow-factor, nothing really beats neon. Perfect for nights out but also as day wear, designers went bold and bright in a rainbow of electric hues. A fresh way to wear neon is in one bold swatch as seen above. Of course, neon accessories can take any outfit from […]

Trend Report: Tassel Belts

Credit 1, 2, 3 A fun accessory with a nod to the Orient, the tassel belts, in obi or skinny styles were a perfect compliment to the decadent 70s wear. The only rules to wearing these belts is to keep it at your natural waist (for figure flattery reasons) and wear them with a heaping dose of confidence.

Trend Report: Orange

Credit 1, 2, 3 One of the punchiest and hottest hues for spring is coral’s close cousin, orange. While all of the zesty colors are definitely in for summer (think grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, lime green…) orange has been popping up everywhere. Unlike coral however, this can be one tricky shade to pull off, and […]

Trend Report: Tropical Prints

Credit 1, 2, 3 While we always see florals for spring (“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Thank you, Miranda Priestly) this season we are also seeing lots of fabulously tutti-frutti patterns. Wear these patterns loud and proud, either by themselves as a statement piece, or try your hand at mixing them with other patterns such as […]

Trend Report: Bra Tops

Credit 1, 2, 3 So this is definitely one trend that your mom is going to hate. After a few seasons of crop tops, designers have upped the ante and debuted the bra top. Too keep this look from being too hoochy, pair it with a full skirt or slouchy pants that cover the knee […]

Trend Report: Tea Skirts

Credit 1, 2, 3 Am I the only person who is excited for the return of longer skirts? I have a few maxi dresses that are the equivalent of pajamas to me that I can wear to class and work, so I’m super stoked that they are back in style. Time to buy up a […]

Trend Report: Color Blocking

Credit 1, 2, 3 There’s just something about spring that brings out all of the peacocks of fashion. So one trend that we saw on the runways was color, color and more color! Even more trendy was putting all of those colors together in one outfit in large bold swatches, aka color blocking. So how […]

Trend Report: White

Credit 1, 2, 3 In direct contrast to the somber colors populating the fall runways, spring saw a plethora of all white looks that are as fresh as an ice-pop in July. First, let me address the elephant in the room and say that it’s not the color that makes you look heavier, but how […]

Spring 2011 Couture Season Is Here

Spring 2011 Couture Season Is Here. People have been claiming that couture is dead because couture clients have been dwindling down and most rich people just buy ready to wear clothes that look like couture. I think this season is showing that couture is alive and kicking. The Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture has […]

Stuart Weitzman’s Spring 2011 Campaign Shows Shoes In Classic 70s Style

This time evoking a 70’s vibe within fashion and set, the graphic black, gray and white woven BRADFORD platform and leopard haircalf XRAY wedge are featured. The BRADFORD represents two key spring trends, woven braiding and color-blocking. The XRAY is a […]

Enter the Fashion to Figure Contest! Check out the Free People January Catalog video. It features some really cute clothes and Paris.  You can’t go wrong with that. I love the airy, hippie looks for spring. My favorite piece is the Kite and Butterfly Tunic that the model wears in the middle of the video […]

LaRoque Spring 2011 Debuts

I know we are just getting into the holiday and winter season posts here at TFAS, but LaRoque just debuted her Spring 2011, and I am so proud of her. You might recall that I interviewed Annabelle in her studio last Spring. She had big dreams for her custom brand, and they are definitely beginning […]

The Last Of Paris

Paris Fashion Week is over and that means that all of the major fashion weeks are done until February and I can now go back to spending most of my time studying and finishing my DIY projects. Speaking of which; I completed this DIY last week from Alice & Daisy and am almost done with […]
