Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Lingerie & Lace

Style tip?  In 1990, Madonna introduced the world to underwear as outerwear with her iconic cone bra.  Twenty years later, lingerie is still inspiring the world of sportswear.  Case in point?  Alexander Wang’s lingerie-meets-tailored suit look, which mixes feminine lace with masculine fabrications and tailoring.  Then again, the lingerie influence need not be quite that overt.  Cynthia Steffe suggested frilly underthings with a fitted ivory dress full of tiny pleats.  And Herve Leger’s body conscious look merely outlined the bodice and skirt suggestively.  How to wear lingerie & lace inspired looks in real life?  We love the mix of masculine and feminine - a lacy cami under a structured blazer, a slip-type skirt with something more tailored up top.  The key is to suggest rather than to show.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Fantastic Hats

Style tip?  What’s the easiest way to transform your look?  One word: accessories.  And the accessory of choice this season appears to be the hat.  Designers used fantastic hats as a way to transport this season’s looks to other places - whether it’s decades past (as at Behnaz Sarafpour), mythology (a la Charlotte Ronson’s Arabian Nights), or Marc by Marc Jacobs’ modern cowboy.
