MBFW 2014: My Favorite Runway Trends

Alas, another MBFW is over but it left behind a brilliant outlook on what’s to come in the fall.  There are a few trends that really jumped out and made me excited for the next fall season.  I’m happy to see that capes were still on the runways.  There is something so mysterious and sophisticated about a cape that I just love.

Lupita Nyong’o was stunning in a jaw-dropping Ralph Lauren cape gown at the Golden Globes and it appears other designers are following suit with their own designs.

One of my favorite movies of all times is Clueless and that’s exactly what I thought of as I watched the Tory Burch show.  She brought back thigh and knee high socks with chunky heeled shoes. Classic!

It appeared many designers may be fans of Scandal as there were quite a few wrap coats on the runways indicative of Olivia Pope’s flawless style.

It was refreshing to see pretty pastel palettes as opposed to the typical warm colors.  For some reason, I feel that clothes in heavy textures like wool and tweed look so much cooler in light colors.  Unexpected and chic.

Black and white is a look that never goes out of style.  It’s fun to see how designers continue to re-invent this look time after time.

Just as radiant orchid is the pantone of this spring, azure blue is the star of fall.  This deeply rich blue hue will make anyone feel like royalty.

MBFW S/S 2014 Designers to Know: Desigual

Welcome to my second installation of MBFW Designers to Know.  Desigual  is a long time favorite label of mine but is not very well known to the masses in the U.S.  I was so delighted to find that Collage, a local boutique, actually carried this colorful brand.  I had the pleasure of shopping at Desigual during my visit to Barcelona and brought back this beauty.

The managing director of this Spanish label, Manuel Jadraque, had been with company since 2004 and was instrumental in bringing the label to the States.  This line always stays true to it’s playful and colorful soul while staying sophisticated.  The silk pants suit below is one of my favorite looks.  It’s effortless but still such a sexy statement.  The black and white graphic coat is just so mod and adorable.  I really appreciate how their clothes maintain an element of fun whether it’s in their bold colors or crazy graphics.  Either way it puts a smile on my face :-)

Get Maxed Out

There’s a myth out there that petite women can’t wear maxi dresses. NOT! I’m quite petite and I love them.  In some ways, I feel like they elongate my tiny frame and they make me feel so glamorous.  Here are a few I’m lusting over right now.

Happy shopping!
