While I didn’t make it to New York Fashion Week this season, I did stay up to date through some of my favorite bloggers and sites like Glam.com and Style.com. New York Fashion Week with a glass of wine, pajamas and my comfortable couch? Yes, please.
So if you’re wondering what items to keep (or score on the end of the year winter sales), I’ll break it down or you.
Over-sized Fur Coats (Preferably Faux Furs)
This is by far one of my favorite trends. There’s nothing better than textures and layers in a winter look.
FLORALS, even for Fall/Winter
Karen Walker shows big florals are appropriate and can be done even in the winter months. Also, you can never go wrong with cozy over-sized knits
“It’s about taking menswear-inspired silhouettes and translating them into feminine colors and silhouettes,” Minkoff said backstage to style.com. I love her use of layers, feminine details, but with a boyish edge like a long coat or a beanie.
Reds, Oranges and Wines
There’s one thing I aim for in the winter and that’s to remain colorful throughout the cold, drab months. Prabal Gurung knows it’s possible. You can invest if a few pieces like this beautiful orange that can be worn through seasons to come.
