Fashion Trends - Autumn/Fall 2017

New York fashion week hasn't started, but we are taking a stab at defining the nebulous realms of this fall's hottest trends. If Stevie Nicks, Blondie, and Axl Rose had a love child this would be the look for fall. Last, but not least the color red has come back with a vengeance and should be included in this fall's color palette. Here is our mood board for fall.

The Pom Pom Thing

The Pom Pom trend is like Mexican corn, or a glimpse into Lady Gaga's closet, you know you should walk away, but it's just too delicious to pass up.

These take pom pom's to a whole new level.

Does one have to be a drag queen to wear these? I think not.

Who doesn't love pom pom shorts?

The Fashion Of Hitchcock

Edith head was a costume genius and dressed most of Alfred Hitchcock's leading ladies. This is what can be learned from a Hitchcock heroine.

1) Marnie. Just because you are in the middle of a psychotic break doesn't mean you have to lose your fabulousness. A black velvet jacket always makes us think happy thoughts.

2) North By Northwest. Nothing good ever comes from meeting strangers on a train. Except maybe that black pendant or a good print one would sport in late fall.

3) The Birds. The green suit is a Hitch favorite. That might be a "Hollywood" fur coat or it might be real. Tippi rocks it.

4) Rear Window. Remember what we said about that suit?

5) Vertigo. This was a tough one, but we decided to keep it classy. The gray suit, and white blouse never disappoints.

Pinterest Trends Of The Week - The Lucky Seven

Here are our seven favorite looks trending on Pinterest aka "The Lucky Seven" that are worth trying.

1) Embroidered jean jacket. We jumped on the bandwagon and bought one. Denim is the perfect gateway jacket from spring to summer. The devil is in the details and anything that takes actual craftsmanship never goes out of style.

2) The backless. We've been obsessed with backless tops for over a decade. It's like showing a lot of skin without showing a lot of skin type of thing.

3) Orange and Peach. We also like to call this look "The Olsen".  There is so much we love about this. The contrasting fabrics. The complementary color palette. 

4) The 70's jacket. Every wardrobe needs this thing. You know the jacket that makes a statement. We like to call this one "The Almost Famous".

5) Black on black. This could be our uniform. So many favorites here. The leather jacket. Boots you can walk in all day and not get blisters. The hair bun. 

6) The dream team. The awesome velvet pumps and faux/embroidered jacket combo kills us. We will be trying this look soon as it stops raining.

7) The twisted mini. What makes this the awesome of awesome is that you don't have to change into your party clothes after work. Yes, we have worn this outfit to the office.
