Style Wise Trend Foolish

Fall 2017 Fashion Trend Review

Another summer has come and is slowly going. Despite the sunny and warm days of early fall in New York, when summer clothing could work, the reality is that most of us are looking to see what catches our eye for Fall 2017 Fashion. For me this means no more linen or light cottons, no more brights or pastels, no more sandals.  I’m now thinking of wool, cashmere, leather and suede in rich colors.

In that frame of mind, I set out to see what designers have in store for us.  To be perfectly frank, walking around Saks, Bergdorfs and Bloomingdale’s, my go to department stores, proved to be quite an overwhelming and exhausting experience. First, there are just so many choices, and so many new designers. It’s no longer just Ralph, Calvin and Oscar, to name a few of the obvious ones.  Everywhere I turned there seemed to be a brand I had never heard of…. ever! And as usual, there was the beautiful, the unattainable, the bad and the ugly.

Since I don’t work in the fashion business, I have the luxury of looking at clothing in a more practical way, i.e. “would I actually wear this garment and does it flatter me?” Instead of, “does this garment make a statement?” Below are pieces from the this fall’s top trends that caught my eye, and that I would love to wear ….somewhere, sometime!

    Gorgeous…I wish I had the budget and the life style for these…for a weekend. Agree with Frith!! Thought of you Cristina in Paris and London at the Dior and Balenciaga exhibits. Would have been fun to go to these with you and Frith
