New York Fashion Week was a few weeks ago but I’m still going through thousands of photos so I’m still reliving the moments of that exciting July week. Before I write about my impressions of the season, I thought I’d do a NYFWM looks recap of what I wore while I was up in the Big Apple.
I’ve mentioned before that when I travel I tend to stick to one color scheme. This way I can mix and match even though most of my outfits are well pre-planned. I like to do this because I adapt and come up with some additional looks if something unexpected popped up. Or if I changed my mind on what I had planned. So for this latest season with a few exceptions I stuck to my usual plan wearing a lot of blues with whites and creams.
I’ve already written about a couple of looks that I rocked while in New York (I.W. Harper Style and A Suit with Shorts ) If you haven’t seen them, please check them out. But here are three more looks that made an appearance during the week.
First was up was my floral blazer with tonal pants. I love this blazer by Billy Reid. Everybody is always looking for what’s new, now or next but I believe that great style and a fantastic wardrobe involves mixing new with great pieces already in your wardrobe. I picked up this blazer last year and it quickly became a favorite. I paired it with tonal plaid pants and finished with a solid tie. I love pattern mixing. This time I mixed a big patterned blazer with a small almost unnoticeable pattern in the pant.
It’s summer so of course I wanted to wear white. Next up in my NYFWM looks recap was how I incorporated white. I found this blazer by Hardy Amies on Gilt. A neutral backdrop is a great way to make a pattern pop and my blazer set against all white pants and shirt easily became the center of attention. This even holds true when I added by bright baby blue loafers.
Lastly in my NYFWM looks recap was my blue linen plaid suit. You’ll get the details on this beauty in an upcoming post so you’ll have to come back and read my follow up posts! Until next time, stay fashionable and remember you too, can be a fool for fashion!
