Milan Fashion

These are two of my top picks from Milan. The Spring 2014 Dolce & Gabbana collection has been described as "an unconscious dream". It draws upon Sicilian culture, Greece, and ancient history. The collection features a mixture of florals, gold coin prize fighter belts, polka dots, mini skirts, long skirts, and iconic column prints.

Fausto Puglisi described his show as "Carolina Herrera meets Axl Rose". I love the edginess of this collection with the biker jacket and the leather harnesses and the skirt with the same technique. It has the softness mixed in with the red palm trees and blue rounded pumps.

How to Wear: Red Leopard Print

leopard print, trends, michael kors, sale at Macy's, nine west, flax pump, kate spade, mango

Leopard print is one of my favorites.  Recently, I found this great, red leopard print sweatshirt at Mango.  I like how gold pairs with red, so I thought I would add gold accessories, and these fun, gold pumps.  Depending on the shininess of the coated denim mixed with the pumps, in some cases it might be best to pair it with a non-shiny pair of black denim, rather than coated.

New York Fashion Week

herve leger, max azaria, nyfw, fashion week, runway collections

Here are a few of my top picks so far from New York Fashion Week.  I particularly liked the neutral colors (black, gray, white), the use of zippers,  black leather corset belts, and the prints of the Hervé Léger by Max Azria collection.  On the opposite color of the spectrum, I liked the colorful West Coast vibe of the Tommy Hilfiger collection -- the combination of scuba, surf, and skate.  For a few other great looks of the collection, check out this Inside Scoop on The Glamourai.
