Fashion Week Favorite Color

This fall, fall for these Fashion and Beauty Trends

Autumn brings noteworthy trends and these are the seasons must have’s. From bold colors, textures, shapes and a change from the traditional to a more refreshed approach, Fall Trends will not let you down. Some trends are fresh, others have been re-done, re-processed and some just begun to see the light.


That’s right! This year’s fashion week favorite color is the incredibly beautiful Oxblood.

It’s the color of blood, it represents passion, desire, yet provokes an elegant appeal. It’s not brown, it’s not purple, not even red, but a mix of several colors. Oxblood is a hue, full, rich and unforgettable. This color goes with everything; it can be a bag, a coat, a dress or pumps. You can even wear it head to toe, as seen in any fashion magazine this season. Another alternative is to pair Oxblood with neutrals. This is a more subtle approach, but not any less alluring. Oxblood is perfect for fall, its warm, and mysterious and is the perfect match to other fall favorites.

Fashion and Style of Royalty

Fashion and Style of Royalty



The dramatic style trend that Baroque brings will be the perfect accent to any outfit this season. Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion on the runway shows you how to channel Old World Europe, the 17th century and the elegant fashion and style of royalty. Think opulent prints, gold accents, bold detailing, ornate and elaborate textures, prints and jacquards. With this trend a little goes a long way. Start by complementing a baroque inspired piece and simply pair it with a solid blouse, pant or skirt. You can also utilize the ornate jewels and swirling motives used as accessory pieces seen on most fashion blogs; for example a Byzantine style necklace, earrings, cuff or bracelet.

Leather Style

Leather Style


Guess what, leather jackets is not what you should think of when you hear leather, instead think of a full skirt, a t-shirt, a cocktail dress and even a work blazer. Leather is now a delicate fabric and wears as such. You heard right, it’s not the hard and uncomfortable material with a harsh feel. This season it’s feminine and can even be romantic when paired with soft shades of pink or purple. Its newfound suppleness makes it easy to wear in both a neutral or bold colors. Free leather from its typical stereotype interpretation and let it show its versatility in an array of colors. Get inspired by this Michael Kors piece.

70’s Print

70'S Fashion and Style

70’S Fashion and Style

Yes its’ back, but really it never left. This 70’s fashion and style trend is everywhere, from printed jeans, blouses, dresses, and boots to accessories. My favorite 70’2 style is the printed jeans, in the traditional avocado green, brown, but with shades of blue and purple. It matches beautifully with solid t-shirts, blouses and even other printed tops. Also implement the cropped top in the 70’s motif, try it in a boxy silhouette and don’t forget a 70’s inspired silky trouser and the sheath dress. All are full of personality and yesterday’s psychedelic disco-infused party scene.

Gauzy Scarves

Fall in love with Gauzy Scarves this season. Winter fashion and you finally become one. It is fall after all, so scarves cannot be left out. Let’s leave the bulky, heavy and traditional scarves behind. Instead loop or drape a light gauzy scarf. Cashmere silk and light cotton scarves, with bold pops of sheen and color will be the perfect complement to any jacket. You can also transform it into a beautiful necklace accessory due to its delicate fabric and flexibility. At the office, a whisper of color keeps you cool and collected while looking poised. Do it differently this season and tie on an airy gauzy scarf, and don’t be afraid to go bold with the color selections. Try this forget me not “Nefertiti” Collection piece influenced by ancient Egypt.

The clutch is no longer a night staple fashion accessory; it can now see the light. Large and oversized is this season’s trend. Carry a traditional patent leather, metallic shimmer, and a python material, an embossed faux or even a snakeskin clutch and you will not miss a beat. Let’s not leave out suede, gun metal, sequined tweed and the popular chain details some designers have implemented into the oversized day clutch. It does not matter what style, color, pattern or texture combination you choose, this trend is in night and now also during the day.
