Let’s take a trip back to February ’09 in NYC to find out what is hot this fall…
Color: just about anything goes. Not much of a prevalent single color. A common thread (no pun intended) was monochromatic schemes. Not so much like spring where there are a variety of mixed colors. Like this photo from the Erin Featherston show. A beautiful black dress with the flocked dots. Gives more dimension and interest, but easy to coordinate.
There were some great patterns at Mara Hoffman’s show. Her collection showed quite a variety and a lot of creativity. These patterns are bold, but not overwhelming like some who seem to imitate a flower boutique explosion.
And don’t forget your hardware. Studded boots, jackets and even tights were spotted on the runway. I don’t recommend the tights for everyday, but the boots and jackets are great closet additions.
Keep it simple this fall. I’m playing it safe here at fashion week with a mostly black selection in my temporary closet, but pulling color in with fabulous shoes, jewelry and handbags.
