Wider Shades of Red
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week continues through the deep freeze and snow, with fashionistas making their way to each show in their stiletto heels. You didn't think a little cold weather would stop New York's fashion set from looking their absolute best did you? Adding to the latest looks for Fall 2011, are looks by Luca Luca and Jill Stuart. These designers clearly had autumn colours on the brain with their looks in bright orange and rusty reds accented by the accessory du jour-although I don't think it's going anywhere-fur! The neon orange shirt dress by Luca Luca on the left is the perfect simple dress for the fall wardrobe, with the bright colour adding some cheer to the grey and cloudy months. The middle look also by Luca Luca, shows wide-leg rust coloured trousers and an ornately designed matching blouse with a soft grey fur coat. This is one of my favourite colour combos and an excellent way to up the chic factor at the office. The last look on the right, comes from Jill Stuart's forest-inspired collection filled with fox motifs on silk dresses. This silk dress is a beautiful bright red in an A-Line cut. The vertical stripes add a playful touch along the bow tied at the side.
This collection was the quintessential chic downtown girl look. With fur bomber jackets, boyfriend blazers, lace frocks and dashes of leopard print here and there. The camel coloured trench coat with the fur shoulder detail to the left, takes a timeless look to a super glam, uber-chic and sassy level. Fur tends to do that to most looks, however when your wearing fur, make sure it's faux fur. The sassy leopard jumpsuit in the middle, shows that no matter how simple or lightweight a look leopard always make it sassier. With some stilettos, tousled hair and chain link bag, you're ready for a night on the town. Now onto the look on the right, the red tweedy bomber jacket make the look. It can be worn in a multitude of ways from over a cocktail dress for a sassy, youthful vibe or over a maxi dress for a boho vibe. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
