Omiru Covers Fashion Week Fall 2008

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2008

It’s that time of year again: New York Fashion Week.  As usual, we’ll be covering Fashion Week straight from the tents at Bryant Park.  But this time around, we’ll be doing something a little different.  Instead of focusing on our trademark show reviews, we’ll be concentrating on trend analysisWe’ll still do some show reviews, but we’re going to be looking at Fashion Week from a meta level to bring you the trend information you need for next Fall and Winter.

While we gear up to start our Fall 2008 fashion coverage, check out our Top 5 Most Wearable Trends and our Top 5 Least Wearable Trends for Spring 2008.

Missing your fashion answer fix?  We’ll be returning to our regularly scheduled programming, providing answers
to your style questions, bright and early on Monday, February 11 (just in time for Valentine’s Day).  We’re diligently working though a very long list of excellent questions (which we’re answering in the order they came in), so thanks in advance for your patience!

Q&A: How to Dress Modestly and Stylishly

Q:  I am petite (5′) and I always dress demurely, which is really important to me. Is the tunic over jeans look an acceptable outfit for a person with a small frame? Is it too overwhelming, and if it is, are there any other alternatives?

 Me & Ko Printed V-Neck TunicA:  Your fashion challenge is to dress demurely while not overwhelming your small frame.  The tunic over jeans look can work, but take care in choosing the tunic.  Because you’re petite, extra volume has the tendency to add unflattering bulk.  So the ideal tunic for you would be slightly more form fitting than the average tunic. 

Other demurely fashionable tops include a chunky knit cardigan, a form fitting turtleneck sweater (extra style points for detailing like oversized buttons), or a sleeved, graphic patterned button-down blouse.

At the end of the day, style is about adapting fashion to your own tastes and desires.  If you wear whatever makes you feel the best, you can’t go wrong.

Have a great tip about how to dress modestly and stylishly?
