fashionweek-lincolncenter_090710

The wait is over–Fashion Week Spring 2011 (the first in Lincoln Center!) is upon us.  Like we did for Fashion Week Fall 2010 we’ll be concentrating on trend analysis to bring you the trend information you need for next Spring and Summer.

While we gear up to start our Spring 2011 fashion coverage, you can reminisce with our some of our favorite Fall 2010 trends: Parkas, the Strong Shoulder, and Blazers over Dresses.

We’ll be returning to our regularly scheduled fashion trends and tips on Monday, September 20!

Herschel Supply Company Pop Quiz Backpack

pop-quiz-herschel-backpack_090710

The passing of Labor Day marks the end of the summer festivities, new beginnings for school, and a fresh start to a new quarter in the workplace. But you don’t have to be in school to get into the fresh back-to-school spirit. The Herschel Supply Company brings us a crisp, clean take on the classic school backpack and updates it with the details that matter - custom fabric lining, an internal computer sleeve, and a fleece-lined sunglasses pocket.

$65  at Need Supply.

You Said: No to Denim on Denim

omiru-poll-result-denim-denim_090710

selvedge-chambray-shirt_090710We asked: Would you wear Denim on Denim?

You said:  No to Denim on Denim, with a 74-26 split in votes.

Style tip? In a season celebrating utility fabrics, it’s only natural to be tempted to double up on the denim.  But how do you wear denim on denim without looking like you’re over-the-top matchy?  The trick is to vary something about the denim–it can be the color, the weight, the texture, or even the distressing.  We love the look of a light chambray shirt (like the J Crew one pictured) paired with a dark rinse denim bottom - skinny jeans or a skirt will do.  Try finishing off the look with a dash of color, as with a bright red satchel or tote.

Next question: This week, we have a question for the guys out there.  Would you carry a man bag?  These men’s totes and side bags are practical, but they’re certainly not for every guy. But what do you think?  Tell us, would you carry a man bag?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

Bed Stu Artillery Boot

bed-stu-artillery-boot_083110

With Fall 2010’s strong military influence, rugged looking boots are perfectly on point for the season. We’re eyeing Bed Stu’s version of the hardcore boot - especially thanks to the foldover leather tongue.

$125  at Urban Outfitters.
