Karina’s NYFW Retrospective
Whew! Finally made it past the valley of boredom and through the land of drudgery that is midterm season to arrive at Spring Break… aka time to go back and check out what I missed of the whirlwind fashion weeks while I was too busy wilting in the library (le sigh).
I’ll attack this retrospective chronologically, hitting up New York Fashion Week first (this happened light years ago, Feb 8-16th, many apologies for the delay on this sartorial update). Delayed or non, lookout for the following trends for FW2012:
Statement Collars. Prim with an edge is back with a vengeance for another season… *excitement*
Ornate Gold. No silver for us, darlings, this season it’s time to go for the gold.
Leather. Speaking of edgy…
Fur accents. Call the Bronx Zoo, there are furry creatures abounding everywhere this fashion week.
And finally, some dresses. If you know me, you know I do not shy away from OTT as often as might be wise. …what? … No, there is most certainly not a legitimate concern that I might one day drown in my own collection of ruffled items, what are you talking about… so I am all about these gorgeous gowns.
Now I just need an occasion to wear them and a bank to rob in order to afford them. Shouldn’t be too difficult, right?
PS I wouldn’t want to send you to the stores without a thorough checklist…Other trends worth hitting up your radar: tweed, watercolor, whimsical patterns, blanket sweaters, hats,slouchy neck scarves, and 70’s style gear. As for colors, look out for rich blues, yellow, pinks and oranges against a muted black or neutral silhouette.
