NY Fashion Week Shows, 3 Word Reviews

Filed under: On the catwalk

It's fashion week in New York and those of us stuck in other places (like sunny LA) can admire the view from afar courtesy of the photos and reviews from Style.com. I perused the shows thus far and I am seeing a lot of dresses, a lot of black and vivid jewel tones. Some vintage 1930s and 1940s looks but done with a twist or a hard edge. Some particularly amazingly wearable looks at the Diane von Furtstenberg show (no one does a dress like DVF), truly adorable outfits at Karen Walker and the charming British chic of Luella. Hair for the most part is pulled back. sometimes with a fringe of thick straight bangs. As near as I can tell, for fall you will need a tank dress, a coat with three quarter sleeves and large buttons, long gloves and wide-legged pants. If you can only watch a handufl of these slideshows, I would suggest the von Furstenberg, Tuleh, Luella and Karen Walker.
