NYC Fashion Week: Bold, Bright and Brilliant

A recent event has made New York a little more colorful than before. “Mercedes Benz” fashion week has attracted a number of fashionistas worldwide, where women showed that they are not afraid of stylish and edgy accessories – neither are they afraid of striking colors.

Striking colors

Summer is gone – but we keep the happy mood!┬áStriking colors will look good if you choose a suitable cut. ┬áThe more simple the colors are, the bigger chance of you looking fashionably is. Red and blue are the top, without a doubt.

If you are courageous and like experimenting, it could be a good idea to purchase 1-2 interesting colorful pieces (e.g. pants or a shirt) which you could match with the rest of your outfit.

Neutral tones

Contrary to striking classics, fashionistas seem to be liking body tones as well as neutral ones. “Nude” is currently ultra popular. Other than that, caramel, light brown and snow white colors are coming into catwalks as well as shops (and therefore our closets). Try matching soft and “puffy” textures together with straight-cut, tough ones, for example, cashmere and leather.

Simple patterns

Certain patterns (squares, lines and variations of those) have recently become very fashionable. The reason is that it looks funky it classical enough (classics mixed with the baldness), and in such situation nothing can go wrong.

Classics

If you want to keep simple French style (a la jeans and white blouse) but want to look edgy, try matching classics with modern clothing style. White shirt and colorful skirt or black classical jeans and a colorful shirt of an asymmetric cut will make you look edgy yet will let you keep minimalistic style at the same time.
