Black at Diane von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, and Charlotte Ronson.


Style tip?  If there’s one color that defines Fall 2010, it has to be black.  In a season of neutrals, dark colors, and understated tones, black is refined, it’s sophisticated, and it’s supremely chic.  Forget the simple Little Black Dress - opt for one with an interesting detail or silhouette, like the asymmetric banding and draping on the Narciso Rodriguez dress.  Or spice up your black with a shot of color, as at Diane von Furstenberg.  Or keep your look head to toe black, but mix it up by combining different textures - rough and smooth, shiny with matte, and so forth - as the bohemian look at Charlotte Ronson.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Belts

Belts at VPL, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler.


Style tip?  The beauty of belts are how they can help create a silhouette.  For those of you with defined waists, the belt can reinforce your hourglass silhouette.  And for those of you with a more boyish, up-and-down shape, the belt can create the illusion of a defined waist.  Wear your belt slung low, as at VPL, or up high (and even over your coat!) as at Marc by Marc Jacobs.  Or use a belt to create visual interest in an otherwise monochromatic outfit, as at Proenza Schouler.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Purple

Purple at Erin Fetherston, Phillip Lim 3.1, and Luca Luca.


Style tip?  Purple is coming in all shapes, sizes, and hues this season.  Try, if you dare, a bright shiny purple, a la Phillip Lim’s dashing cocktail dress.  Or opt for a softer shade of purple, as at Luca Luca and Erin Fetherston.  Whatever the shade, purple looks positively polished on simple silhouettes.  Just let the color shine.
