The fashion cycle is turning once again, and a new season of looks has been thrust upon us- yep, its fashion week time. As Autumn creeps up on us and we begin to pack away our summer lightweights and invest in some key winter pieces, our attention is diverted to spring 2014- that’s fashion for you, always something new on the scene!
As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, and London prepares to host its own one, I thought I’d hail a lady who always looks effortlessly amazing and who certainly didn’t disappoint at the various f-row events and parties in New York- Miss Jessica Alba!
Jessica Alba is always firmly in my top five style icons. I love her ability to look flawless, whether she is shopping in a supermarket with baby in tow, or posing on the red carpet for a Hollywood premiere. She’s a fan of timeless classic pieces but teams these with kooky daring garments-creating a rather versatile wardrobe. Her best fashion trick is to use vivid colours in everyday outfits to give them a bit of Ka-Pow. AND she’s a big fan of yellow just like me. All in all, I would like to be her please!
At New York Fashion Week Jessica wore some key AW trends. At the Charlotte Ronson show, she defied all rules that knee high socks are only for school girls. With these she wore classic monochrome stripes, a pleated mini skirt and some very on trend deep berry lipstick. This was a fun look made all the better by an artfully draped leather jacket over the shoulders- draping is BIG this winter guys, perfect for your big oversized coats. Not necessarily winter-friendly though! 😛
Continuing her fun streak, Jessica wore a signature Phillip Lim comic book slogan sweater teamed with navy and black tapered trousers and red stilettos. But she also displayed her versatility as a style icon, going all demure in an asymmetrically cut black dress with white accessories and sleek hair at Narciso Rodriguez. She also returned to stripes in a smart power blazer and quiff up-do at DVF.
Jess wasn’t the only well-dressed celebrity to grace NYFW. Check out these celebrities looking pretty suave. Bonus points to Olivia Palermo for wearing sunglasses on the frow during a show- so fashion darling!
And of course, I couldn’t blog about fashion week without picking some favourite looks for Spring 2014- what were your favourite shows? Can’t wait for LFW!
