Passion for fashion

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York just ended, and in collection after collection the trends for autumn and winter 2010/11 were neutral in colors, classic yet urban in design, and all around gorgeous, yet infinitely wearable. Highly relatable, the strongest focus for fall and winter was on investment dressing, buying pieces that morph into many outfits, and are infinitely versatile. With the economy still straining to get to the next level, and paychecks not allowing the wiggle room for luxuries as in the past, almost every “Fashie” has had to tighten her stylish belt! Here are a few ideas on how to get the most current runway looks for play, work and evening and still come out thousands of dollars ahead on value!

Vintage classics

Classic Retro

A classic chic, retro vibe (a.k.a. Mad Men) returned to the runways again for fall and winter 2010, and many designers, including Tadashi Shoji, showed simply stunning dresses designed to last the test of time. One theme that recurred over and over was a homage to vintage style, in black, nude, and sheer fabrics of chiffon, silk, taffeta, and lace. Platform sandals and pumps are going to be around for a least a season more, and now more than ever are the choices in color and texture, as well as price options. Consider sheer hosiery with a sexy seam up the back for a unexpected twist! Scoop up this super deal on a look-alike black lace over nude lining dress ($17.80!) at forever21.com. Complement with sheer seamed hosiery ($4.29) at amazon.com and suede platform pumps ($99.00) at stevemadden.com.
