Fashion Me Now

Hello, my dear friends! New York Fashion Week happened and gone, I went to the city and back. Instead of recapping the shows I’ve gone day by day, I want to look into the trends more like last time, however, I also want to wait until after Paris to do so. One trend though, is definitely happening in the fashion industry, and I anticipate it will become more prevalent in the next couple of seasons. The trend of buying next season now.

How gratifying it is when one can wear what was on the runway the next day? In the past, even the most prestige fashion insiders couldn’t get their hands on the runway pieces until weeks later. The world has changed dramatically from those days. Started with a couple of small labels last year, now big fashion retailers such as Tommy Hilfiger and J Crew, are offering customer’s instant fashion pieces, one that you can see and buy. Club Monaco even intruded an entire collections that was shown last Friday and I was able to shop pieces from that collection the next day at the Club Monaco store in Georgetown.
Out of the collection, my favorite is this pinstripe, off-shoulder dress. Red stripes are warm and cheerful, the fabric is light-weight however the additional lining make it chilly-day proof.  It is perfect for layering (as I’ve done here) for cold days, or just worn on its own when the temp goes up. Overall, this dress is ideal for off-duty occasions, from weekend errands to seaside strolls.

Have to call out these earrings because I think they are this spring’s hero piece. Without a doubt, statement earrings will be huge in 2017 but not everyone like a big, metallic earring. A great alternative is a string of balls, they are cute, more feminine and versatile. You might have already seen them in all sorts of fashion editorials. I wore during NYFW a pair of silver ones for over $300 before I found these at Club Monaco, which come in three color ways and cost under $50!

Instant fashion is better news for us fashionistas. Check out Club Monaco’s entire New York Fashion Week collection, great blouse styles and floral pieces to add to your wardrobe now.
