Fashion Week Proves Sexy Is Back In!

Dressing up like your boyfriend is soooooo last season people. Thank goodness, the masculinity meets femininity trend is fading and girls and starting to dress like girls again. What I discovered from viewing several fashion collections throughout the month is that many designers are bringin’ sexy back and I’m loving it. Derek Lam, Chloé and Nicolas Andreas Taralis are just a few  designers that have traded the ultra baggy looks for structured, feminine silhouettes with revealing necklines or human flesh. My personal favorite is structured, sexy tops and bottoms with a bit of flare and edge. So lets bring in the sexy for the spring next year. Who’s daring enough to pull it off?

Burberry Has the Hottest Fashion in London, Hands Down

Burberry Spring 2011

I love Burberry. Always had a knack for it although its style was a bit too mature for my taste. The plaid cashmere scarves and khaki trenches have always been super cute to me but always a bit too grown for my age. However, things are certainly different as Burberry has made a MAJOR come up for their spring 2011 collection. Although the show wasn’t a favorite amongst critics, just about everyone important in the London fashion scene was in attendance. The trenches next season are fabulous.. Seriously, you’ll be a rock star with these studded and metallic jackets. There a little bit of that Burberry sophistication with an underground London edge to it and it’s definitely the hottest thing on the runway for fashion week so far.

Who’s Rockin Combat Boots this Season?

GUESS “Sensation” Lace-Up Combat Boots

As you guys may know, NYC fashion week is starting and I, like so any other fashion obsessed individuals, am extremely excited and estatic. Fashion week marks the beginning of fall fashion and since it occurs in the same week as Labor Day, I guess it’s safe to say that fall is officially here and ready to take action. I love the fall season because I’m a huge boot lover; and what better time to buy a pair of funky boots than the fall? Since the weather’s cooling down; boots should be a MUST on every girl’s shopping list this month. A hot shoe trend that is making it way from the runway to the sidewalk is the laced-up combat boots. Although motorcycle boots were huge last year, the laced-up combat boots are just simply cuter, more durable and way more stylish. With the whole military-wear trend going on, laced up combat boots are so in this season.
