Elegant Floral Prints at Cynthia Steffe, Derek Lam, and Milly.


Style tip? 
Prints took a decidedly floral turn this season, an evolution from the graphic, geometric prints of the past few seasons.  Choose a print in proportion to your body–e.g. if you’re petite, opt for a smaller print.

Fall 2008 Fashion Week Trend: Long Blazer

The Long Blazer at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, and Philip Lim.


Style tip?  Cropped blazers dominated the fashion scene for the past several seasons, which is great for long waisted gals.  But for those of us with a short waist and long legs, the long blazer is much more figure flattering.

Funnel necklines at James Coviello, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Luca Luca.


Style tip? 
Like turtlenecks, funnel neck garments work best on those with long necks.  If you’re not blessed with a long swan neck, try a more open funnel neckline, a la Marc Jacobs.

Day Glo Brights at Temperley London, Diane von Furstenberg, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.


Style tip? 
Bright pinks, greens, and yellows have their place on the runway–and on the streets.  Pair with neutrals (or a muted tone in the same color family, a la DVF)  for the most dramatic effect.

Pouf Sleeves at Ports 1961, Catherine Malandrino, and Diane von Furstenberg.


Style tip? 
Pouf sleeves are great for camouflaging heavy upper arms.  Keep the pouf small (as at Diane von Furstenberg) for the right balance of drama and wearability.

What do you think?  Would you wear the pouf sleeve?  And if so, with what?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

Style tip?  Especially flattering is a nice burnt orange–a slightly reddish orange hue.  Wear with other warm colors for best results.

Style tip? 
We’re crushing on black and white plaid right now.  Wear with black (or white) for a stylish achromatic look.  Love color?  Add a pop of color with a handbag, scarf, or your shoes.
