After 30 years of influencing the masses, the Nike Air Force 1 looks forward to what will become of the iconic sneaker when further infused with Nike’s innovation and technology. The Family of Force consists of a hand-full of members, each recognizing the heritage that has made the Nike Air Force 1 a coveted classic, but also celebrates its own unique, innovation-driven look and character. Bound by three core design principles—lightweight, breathability and comfort, achieved through the integration of Nike’s Hyperfuse construction and Lunarlon cushioning in some cases—these new relations represent the future of the Nike Air Force 1, joining the thousands of iterations that have elevated the sneaker to collector status. Meet the family’s newest members, all of whom will have a hand in continuing the Force’s continued dominance and influence.

Style Watch: Printed Suits

runway-red-carpet-real-way-prada-nanette-lepore-warehouse-printed-suit

The printed suit is everywhere this season. Wear the blazer and pants together or separate and create many different looks! However, there are a few things to keep in mind when putting together a printed outfit to prevent looking like bad gift wrap.

The Printed Suit Styling Rules:

  1. Make sure the pants are fitted. This shouldn’t be too hard to stick by, since most printed pants in stores now are cut similarly.
  2. Choose a soft and sophisticated blouse in a solid neutral color to pair with the pants.
  3. Make sure the jacket fits well but isn’t too tight. It’s best to have a little room to move around.
  4. Keep accessories to a bare minimum and hair pulled back and out of the way. You want to give off a polished finish that offsets the wilder print of the suit.
  5. That goes for shoes and clutches as well, keep it really simple.

But absolutely, under no circumstances, forget to wear heels. OK, ready to steal this look from the runway?

Photograpy of The Style Rundown: Boston Fashion Week 2012

joke

I had the pleasure of attending The Tent at Boston Fashion Week on Saturday(of fashion week). The location was stunning and the staff at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel was AMAZING. I attended the shows of three designers who enchanted me. The first designer Avni Trivedi took me on a tribal journey complete with a tribal drum quartet. Her pieces were lose and flowy and quite airy. The next designer was Luke Aaron who was by far my favorite. His dresses reminded me of a modern day Jackie O. They were romantic yet sexy. They were refined yet youthful… if I ever have a red carpet event to attend… I will be wearing Luke Aaron for sure!  The last designer was Victoria Dominguez-Bagu her designs were fun and flirty and very reminiscent of summer and spring. Her garment were tailor made to the girls and looked great.  One model in her show had a strut that ultra sexy! All the designers had well finished garments, and they all wowed in different ways!

Style For Less: JC Penny Wax Coated Jeans

Coated jeans are one of the season’s hottest denim trends and for this week’s Fabulous Find we’ve found the perfect pair for autumn. Not only are these black coated jeans a less expensive (and cruelty-free) alternative to leather pants, but they give a distinct edgy vibe to every look, whether they’re dressed up or down. The best part? These jeans are available for only $25 at department store JCPenney, making them a trendy and budget-friendly find.

Stella McCartney skirt on Far Fetch, Etro Fall ’12 and DKNY Fall ’12 on Elle.com

Over the course of the last couple of season hems of skirts have been ever changing.  Top three skirt trends are Maxi Skirts, High-low hems and mid-length skirts.  The next style to make a wave is the ultra girly, ultra dainty trumpet hem. Its also know was the fluted hem or drop-peplum. This flirtatious style adds a feminine vibe to a skirt or dress. We see this look being perfect paired with a blazer and tights for a casual workplace or worn bare legged for a fun night out.
