17c5499e083e4493244707f8fbcec01a

This week one of our fashion bloggers is set loose on the streets of New York City to discover and report the latest trends in Fall fashion street wear. What is the common girl on the street wearing to business, lunch, and evening? And how do New Yorkers incorporate fashion into their busy, non stop lifestyles? Let’s discover what’s trending and find out ways you can implement into your Seasonal wardrobe and your lifestyle needs this year.

PRACTICAL COATS WITHOUT THE YAWN

In preparation for the trip, I ended up packing only one bomber leather jacket. However, I should have followed the chic coat option all of New York is wearing this Season. In the city that never sleeps, women know that an all purpose, durable coat is the way to go for Fall. Lighter than fur or wool, the camel trench coat is one of this Season’s favorite jacket options, suitable paired over your work suit and later with a chic midi dress and over the knee suede boots.

Be FURocious

Being from L.A., I had wondered if “fur” is a taboo touchy clothing piece for Fall so ended up leaving my faux fur vest and real fur jacket at home. That’s not the case here in NYC. Cozy fur vests and coats are all the rage paired over anything from business suits to a day out in Central Park, faux of course for the protection of animals.

And Don’t Forget The Brights

You hear the myth that all New Yorkers only wear black and dark colors, so as to not stand out too much as a tourist, I opted to pack and wear neutral colors only. Boy was I wrong. New York women know how to stand in color, but with a more sophisticated approach. They pair one brightly lit statement piece and accessorize with solid colors and minimal jewelry. Try your black slacks with a bright outer piece to stand out like an “Oh So Chic” New Yorker.

ALL WHITE IS STILL OK

Throw out the “no white” after Labor Day rule, and make your own rules like the New York women do. I tend to always push my white and ivory clothes to the back of the closet for Fall and Winter, but the New York women know that rules were made to be broken. They steer clear of silk and chiffon pieces, in favor of heavier fabrics like wool. I am actually on the look out for a white leather jacket for Fall here in the Fashion District.

Seen outside Carnegie Hall, I liked how she dressed up for the night in a tailored dress and crisp heels for a busy night out on the town.

Some Of Our Favorite White Pieces 
Ivory Tailored Bolero Jacket
Catrinah Lace Dress
Laszio Sequin Cocktail Dress
Silk Charmeuse Dress
Joe Ultra Suede Leggings
Bruna Embossed Faux Fur Jacket

SILKY SLIP DRESS

I’ve always been a bit leery of wearing a barely there silk slip dress during the Fall. But New Yorkers are pairing the slinky silhouette this Season with hardier fare, from tees underneath, to moto jackets, to long trenches. Combine with your favorite ankle boots for downtown shopping style and switch to strappy heels as you head to a Broadway show. Check out this flowy one I found at Bloomingdale’s in the heart of the city.
romantic-slip-dress-ny-style
Need a little romance in your afternoon? Try a glitter knit slip dress paired with a chunky oversized cardigan for a chic and comfortable New York errand running girl. No time for a trip home? Pull slinky heels from your tote and meet friends at Hudson Clearwater hidden restaurant.
black-and-white-slip-dress-ny-style
Check out the Brooklyn Museum  in a sophisticated black & white slip dress and leather jacket then dine at Saul for a NY evening to remember.

ANKLE LOVING BOOTS 

casual-ankle-boots-ny-style

And speaking of ankle boots, they are my “go to” shoes roaming the streets of NYC. As I expected, the streets are covered with every single boot style imaginable, from combat, to suede, to rocker style, to patent leather. My ankle boots were perfect to pair with my leggings all day and with my jumpsuit at night for the ballet. If you only get one shoe this Fall, get the versatile ankle boot.

LONG VESTS AND SKINNIES MESH

cozy-chic-vest-and-skinnies-ny-style

What a great styling option, suitable for women from young to old. Skinnies are easy to pack and slim the leg on everyone. I brought a variety of these adaptable pants to switch out with different shirt options. How does New York style their skinnies? With an oversized chunky sweater and ankle boots or heels for a night on the town. I just had to head to Macy’s on 34th to grab me a pair of NYC’s favorite.
casual-vs-work-vest-and-skinnies-ny-style
The vest and skinny work easily for the office or a chill fall NY day. Pair your black lace skinnies with a long sleeve knit top and oversized vest for office days or shimmy into your favorite jeans and satin top and stroll Manhattan for a totally you afternoon.

LAYERED LIKE A LOCAL

office-layers-ny-style

Since I only took 1 carryon, I had to think about layers while in NYC. How do they keep so warm, especially on brisk windy Fall days? I spotted jeans paired with a plaid long sleeveinfinity scarf, and a chic wool blazer; an A line skirt with long sleeve sweater tucked in; and I myself wore leggings, tight sweater, and warm vest that kept me comfy all night long.
on-the-go-layers-ny-style

On the go? Shimmy into a pair of leggings, pullover an oversized sweater and slip into to some concrete loving kicks for a busy New York Minute.

jean-layers-ny-style
No matter how you choose to layer, the ONE item all New Yorkers never go without is a long warm scarf. From Central Park to Broadway to Greenwich, these girls know how to style a scarf. Layer a long draping sweater over a knit top and infinity scarf with your favorite jeans tucked into some serious leather combat boots for a NY City walk about.
So whether you’re in The City to see the sites, taste to food, listen to the music or everything in between. Be sure to dress like a local, but always remember to
Be YOU, Be Fashionable, and ALWAYS Be Feminine.

SPRING’S FAVORITE BEAUTY TRENDS

springlook016_visuel

A few weeks ago we featured our favorite trending accessories for 2016. This week, we follow up with our top make up and hair trends seen on the runways this Season. Take a look at our choices below  and see how you can start pairing with your favorite fashion finds for Spring.

7391b861c803141de1562a05df11fb8c

BOLD LIPS

Gone are the days of “no makeup” makeup. This Spring, designers from Dolce & Gabbana to Jason Wu to DKNY went big and bold with all hues of red on the lips. Backstage makeup pro Yadim suggests keeping this look young and fresh by starting with “freshly scrubbed” skin, using only a light concealer to hide any blemishes, and finishing up with a sculpted “boyish” brow. We like Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce Matte lipstick in an array of colors from dark mauve to cherry red to blood orange. If you’re not quite that daring, you can still experiment with the look by using a “barely there” lip tint like Stay All Day lip gloss from Stila. Pair your makeup look with a simple solid color outfit to enhance and draw attention to your bold lips. Throwback to the boppin’ 50’s in Hale Bob’s vintage black V neck dress accessorized with classic black satin pumps from Salvatore Ferragamo. Or go “Hollywood glam” in Hale Bob’s silk jeweled cocktail dress, gold flecked sandals by Schutz, and glitter box clutch from Kate Spade. Brighten up your Springtime look instantly this Season with a swipe of bold red lip color.

GO BLUE

Another bold make up trend seen on the runways this Season is the return of the blue eye shadow. Reminiscent of the 70’s and 80’s, this color can be tricky to navigate without looking too tacky. The key to succeeding with this look is to start with a fresh face with minimal cheeks and lips to emphasize the eyes. Get Kendall’s above runway look by swiping Urban Decay’s radium blue eyeshadow across the lids, lining with black gel eye crayon eyeliner from Marc Jacobs, and finishing with luminous emerald shimmer powder from Make Up For Ever. If you’d rather go with just a touch of blue, try Yves Saint Laurent’s luxurious lash extending blue mascara or simply swap out your usual liner for a crystal blue waterproof crayon eyeliner from Dior. Compliment your 70’s look in a black lace baby doll dress from Liberty Garden accessorized with a wide brim hat from Eric Javits and patchwork Vintage clogs NEW from Shellys London. Get groovy this year, and go blue.

QUARTZ ROSE MAKE UP

Pantone’s color of the year can be incorporated not only into your wardrobe collection, but also into your Spring make up regime. Update your coloring and add quartz rose pink for a girly, Seasonal glow. Start with a tinted foundation like Nars’ NEW Velvet Matte Skin Tint, formulated with SPF 30 to protect and transform your skin now and over time. Give your cheeks a light dusting of pink powder blush from MAC and sweep the same color over your eyes. Finish your look with a slight “cat eye,” brush of mascara, and swipe of Yves Saint Laurent hydrating lip tint to keep lips moisturized on colder days. Pair your fresh faced look with Liberty Garden’s NEW pale pink embroidered maxi or the blush pink suede shift dress from Hale Bob and you are sure to spread your sweet “scent” everywhere you go.

QUARTZ ROSE HAIR COLOR

If winter winds have done a number on your tresses, head to the stylist for a deep conditioning treatment, a trim of the old dead ends, and a fresh new hair color for Spring. If you are already blonde, go with this Season’s trendiest “gold pink” tint, topped off with a bouncy “blowout.” If you are a redhead, ask for a lighter hue, and for the brunettes, go “hipster” with pink streaks. Or be “pink” for a day with Splat Hair Chalk, a fun, temporary way to color your hair for just 24 hours. For the less daring, you can still get in on the trend by adding a “touch of pink” hair accessory to your everyday style. Look for glittering pink barrettes like L. Ericson’s “Swarovski Treasure Trove,” dainty headbands, handcrafted flower clips, or this Season’s trendy floral head piece embellishments from Erickson Beamon. Pair your luscious locks with a flouncy floral satin dress from Hale Bob or go matching in a pink printed jersey tank dress. Whether you choose to go gold pink this Spring or simply add the color to your hair accessory collection, be sure to include quartz rose into your fashion style this Season.

FLORAL HAIR EMBELLISHMENTS

As mentioned above, floral hair accessories are all the rage for Spring. From Rodarte to Alice + Olivia to Prada, the runways were filled with glittering flora and fauna this Season. Dress up Hale Bob’s short sleeved floral shift dress by accessorizing your tresses with a swarovski crystal embellished barrette by Colette Malouf and matching t-strap wedge sandals from Badgley Mischka. Try Spring’s top trend in Hale Bob’s “Boho” drop waist black and white embroidered dress paired with gladiator sandals from Rebecca Minkoff, a fringe crossbody from Free People, and a flowing floral lariat hair accessory. Or spruce up Hale Bob’s long sleeve romantic lace dress with nude floral sandals NEW from Kay Unger and a golden floral headband from designer Deepa Gurnani. Add a little embellishment to your everyday life this year.

BASEBALL CAP FOR ALL OCCASIONS

Another favorite hair accessory trending on the runways this Spring is the utilitarian ball cap. Not just reserved for game time, the baseball hat can be paired with anything from a floral sun dress for lunch out to cropped dress pants for work to a flowing maxi for a night out on the town. Accentuate your female physic while keeping it casual by pairing Hale Bob’s printed pink tank dress with the new platform sneakers from Superga and net overlay cap from Alexander Wang. Segue into the evening hours with iridescent ankle strap sandals from Loeffler Randall , a silver studded clutch by Sarah Jessica Parker, and an embellished sequin hat from Shourouk. Carry the look to the office by combining Hale Bob’s classy metallic floral capri pants with a flouncy ivory silk tank, black Bolero blazer, classic pumps by Charles David, and a black leather cap from Kate Spade. Dressy or casual. Day out or day in. Be sure to incorporate the baseball hat into your wardrobe collection this year.

ROPE BRAID

And finally, if all of our top hair and make up trends just really don’t appeal to you, try the simple and easy-to-do rope braid. Instead of sweeping your hair into the usual pony, try something new this Season. Achieve this hairstyle by dividing your ponytail into two or three equal sections and lacquering with Bumble and Bumble classic hairspray to prevent frizziness or flyaway. Sport this style on your way to the gym or errand day around town. You’ll feel like you just stepped off the runway by pairing your hairdo with Hale Bob’s long sleeve beaded shift dress or classic black lace tank dress on your next date night. Trying something new this year doesn’t have to be complicated. Try the rope braid this Spring.

FLORAL TUNIC DRESS

What better way to escape Winter’s chill this Season than a trip to the beach. Whether you are enjoying the Bahama islands or soaking up the sun in Miami, don’t forget to include a floral patterned tunic dress in your suitcase. We like Hale Bob’s coral floral cotton sateen dress paired over your favorite swimsuit, Badgley Mischka’s crystal embellished wedge sandals, Free People’s sea straw Boho hat, and chic cat eye sunglasses from Prada for daytime fun. Segue into the evening hours by whipping your hair up into a loose topknot, and accessorizing with Stuart Weitzman’s strappy heels and sparkling clutch from Loeffler Randall. Casual or dressy, the tunic dress is a “must have” for the beach.

 IVORY BIKINI

Flattering on all skintones, we like an ivory colored swimsuit paired with loose, flowing wide leg pants for seaside style. Check out Hale Bob’s ivory lace crochet string bikini combined with the white lace trimmed wide leg pants. Or, match your swimsuit with crepe de chine wide leg pants with crochet from Hale Bob and a Flora Bella York crochet oversize tote.

FLORAL MAXI DRESS

Keeping with the tropical theme, be sure to also include a floral maxi dress in your travel wardrobe. Perfect thrown over your swimsuit or glammed up for a night on the town, the maxi dress is easily adaptable for all your planned trip activities. During the day, pair Hale Bob’s coral floral maxi dress with sandals, beach hat from Helen Kaminski, and an authentic handmade sea shell necklace. Style your romantic dinner for two by combining your maxi dress with strappy sandals and a “Garden” fringed shawl by Wildfox for breezy evening walks on the beach.

CRUISE

SHORTS ROMPER

No need to pack a shirt and shorts separately. Save room in your suitcase and include a tropical romper in your packing this Season. A big trend on the runways this year, we like the tropical print romper from Tory Burch or go for a streamlined tailored look in Nicole Miller’s double breasted tuxedo shorts set. Whether you throw it over your swimsuit at the pool, pair with sandals as you tour the city, or combine with your favorite pair of dancing heels at night, the flattering and versatile romper is a key item to include on your cruise ship getaway.

ELEGANT JUMPSUIT

Pack your bags and cast away in a chic jumpsuit, trending on this year’s runways from Versace to Elie Saab. Easily adaptable for casual days on shore or elegant dinners on board, the jumpsuit should definitely be included in your cruise ship luggage. We like Liberty Garden’s sleek black lace and twill pantsuit paired with flat sandals during the day and strappy heels at night. Or go colorful in Hale Bob’s tropical print jersey jumpsuit combined with Steve Madden’s lace-up ballerina flats and oversized tote bag from Michael Kors, suitable for any occasion on your getaway.

SKI SLOPES

FUR OUTERWEAR

While most “snow bunnies” will be sporting their latest insulated outerwear, turn heads on the slopes in a cozy warm fur vest or coat. Layer Hale Bob’s black rabbit fur vest over Liberty Garden’s ivory ultra suede long sleeve shirt, Hale Bob’s black mixed media leggings, waterproof booties, and cashmere stocking cap from Dolce & Gabbana. On evening dinners at the lodge, pair your vest with Liberty Garden’s long sleeve ivory mixed media sheath dress and black leather knee high boots from Ralph Lauren. However you choose to style, you are sure to stand out from among the crowd on this year’s ski vacation.

WINTER OVERCOAT

Don’t forget to include your favorite snug overcoat amongst your packing for skiing this Season.

As nighttime falls, and the evening winter festivities begin, shimmer and shine in your favorite sequined cocktail dress. We like Hale Bob’s gold sleeveless sequined dress or shimmy and shake in Hale Bob’s vintage 20’s black and blue beaded feather dress. Neither appeal to you?

CITY

a26b5b5ef5f55fd3baca7eed5ec4fef0

If you are vacationing in the big city this Winter, the key to staying versatile and adaptable to winter weather is layers, layers, layers. Whether dressing for lunch with the family or a romantic holiday dinner for 2, be sure to pack lots of layering options in your suitcase. To keep from looking too “puffy,” be sure to start with thin materials and work your way outward to bulkier fabrics. For an easy yet stylish daytime look, pair Hale Bob’s Melange turtleneck sweater in rust, navy or black with AC Collection’s dark wash high waist skinny jeans, navy wool coat from Kenneth Cole, and your favorite pair of knee high boots. For a trendy look, substitute a this Season’s favorite cape coat from Alice + Olivia and cozy navy ultra suede leggings from Hale Bob.

SKIRT + SWEATER

No need to tuck away your favorite Summer skirt or dress. Take a tip from celebrity Olivia Palermo’s chic city look and pair your favorite skirt style with a chunky knit, warm leggings, and short heeled booties. Start with Liberty Garden’s ultra suede black patchwork skirt and layer with Tory Burch’s chunky ivory turtleneck pullover sweater, Topshop’s faux fur cozy peacoat, Hale Bob’s black ultra suede leggings,  and classic Christian Louboutin black booties as pictured above. On warmer days, forgo the leggings and coat, and layer with a snug wool scarf from rag & bone to ward off the brisk winter breeze.

New York Fashion Week NYC Fall 2015

New York City is a buzz this week as the city kicks off Spring 2016’s fashion trends and designs.

blush pink trend for Fall 2015

BLUSH PINK

From J Crew to Oscar de la Renta to Jill Stuart, designers everywhere jumped on the “blush pink” color trend for 2015. Found on dresses, blouses, sweaters, pantsuits, and handbags, blush pink is the hottest new color trend to hit the fashion industry and it looks like the color is continuing into the Fall Season. Spruce up your winter wardrobe with this year’s color trend. We love Liberty Garden’s pink tattered long sleeve shirt paired with Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings for casual days out. On your next night on the town, forgo the predictable LBD and opt for Hale Bob’s chic powder pink suede shift dress accessorized with matching pink suede heels from Jeffrey Campbell. Be sure to add this trending color to your wardrobe collection this Fall.

bright jewel tones for Fall 2015

BRIGHT JEWEL TONES

Another color trend continuing into the cooler months ahead are bright jewel toned colors. Don’t let the cold dreary days of Fall and Winter dampen your style. Shine bright this Season in ruby red, cobalt blue, deep jade, or violet purple. Get a similar look as spotted street style at New York Fashion Week with Hale Bob’s bright blue A line dress.

For a different color scheme, go with Hale Bob’s long sleeve purple shirtdress paired with a warm purple Bolero jacket and Badgley Mischka’s Sherry lace booties.

Or simply throw on Hale Bob’s ruby red fur vest over your outfit of the day for a trendy “jewel toned” touch to your Fall style.

Boho fringe skirt

BOHO FRINGE

Cool festival style “Boho” fringe is still trending into the Fall season. Forgo summer’s sheer lace and gladiators and update the look for the cooler months with suede, leather, and knee high boots. Start with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve shirt with fringe paired with Joe’s Jeans’ black jeggings and Ralph Lauren’s fringe suede knee high boots. Update your outerwear with a chic black leather fringe jacket from Rebecca Minkoff for those crisp, chilly Fall days and accessorize with your fringe handbag and “Boho” floppy hat from summer.

70's style flare

RETRO 70’s

With Boho fringe still trending, retro 70’s style is grooving its way into the Fall and Winter Season. Look for wide leg jeans, flare overalls, peasant blouses, bold floral patterns and long sleeve maxi dresses. Get a similar “retro” look as pictured above at New York Fashion Week with Topshop’s floral print overalls paired with a sleek crop top from Blue Life and “70’s style” clogs from Steve Madden. We also like AC Collection’s wide leg jeans in a variety of washes to suit your “retro” style. Pair the dark blue color with Hale Bob’s ivory “peasant” style silk chiffon blouse for casual days out, the gray hue with Hale Bob’s red silk button down for the office and the sparkle tint with Hale Bob’s black satin blouse with lace detailing for cocktail hour.

cropped wide leg pants

CROPPED WIDE LEG

Following the trend of retro 70’s, the wide leg pant gets an update this Season with a shorter, cropped style. Spotted all over the streets of New York for Fashion Week, the wide leg cropped pant is one of this Fall’s trendiest fashion statements. From daytime to evening, let your cropped pant style work for you this year. Start with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash wide leg cropped denim jeans and pair with your favorite white Tee and sneakers for an everyday “Athleisure” look. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your denim with Liberty Garden’s NEW black long sleeve mesh blouse and gold sparkle heels from Betsey Johnson. You can create your own cropped style by rolling the cuffs of any of your favorite wide leg pants in your closet for a new and updated silhouette this Fall. Go ahead and give it a try.

patterned maxi dress

MAXI DRESS

A third “retro” look continuing into the cooler months of Autumn is the flowy maxi dress. With careful styling and just the right accessories, you can continue wearing your favorite Summer maxi dress style throughout Fall and Winter. Forgo the flat sandals and straw hat and layer your maxi with a heavier knit sweater, suede jacket, ankle booties, or strappy heels. Choose maxi dresses and skirts with warmer colors and darker floral prints for Fall.

SHIRTDRESS

Our final favorite street style trend spotted at last week’s NYFW is the shirtdress. Take a tip from celebrities Vanessa Hudgens, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Olivia Palermo and give this look a try for Fall. The simplest way to work the look is to grab your husband’s large button down shirt from the closet, cinch with a skinny belt, and pair with your favorite knee high boots. Or, shop the look now with our top choices from Hale Bob. Try the black and white floral button down shirtdress accessorized with Michael Kors’ black knee high boots or suede wedges from Steve Madden. Dress up your shirtdress by adding delicate jewelry and pairing with your favorite strappy heels to dance the night away.
