BETCHES LOVE: NYFW FALL TRENDS

betches love this nyfw

 

We’re three-quarters of the way done with fashion week season. So far, we’ve spotted street style at New York Fashion Week, threw a crazy bash in London for LFW, and, as we speak, have our eyes glued to Style.com for all the new collections in Milan. If you’re anything like us, you’re already plotting your moves for next fall. Of course, we can’t wait for spring and summer but September through November are our favorite months to put outfits together. Hello, boots, scarves, and chunky knit sweaters! You know exactly what we mean.

After scanning the runways of some of our favorite designers for NYFW fall trends, we started to notice a handful of trends that, um, we weren’t so sure we’d be embracing…even six months from now. We asked our friends at Betches Love This – the snarky internet-BFFs that tell it like it is on everything from bros to celeb style – for their take on sleeveless coats, menswear-insipred footwear, bright red, and more. Because, if anyone will tell us the truth, they will!

Sleeveless coats – also known as a vest.

“Don’t eh’stomp your last season high heeled Loubs at me honay.” But really, I don’t know any straight man who would ever wear a bow on his shoe, so this isn’t menswear. This is a pointy leather shoe with a chunky kitten heel. And if you ever wore these out, no man would ever hit on you no matter how hot you were, because he’d think – nay- know you were a lesbian.

Red

Omg. RED. I would have never thought to wear red if someone, especially the man who designs dresses like Zoe Saldana’s for the Golden Globes, had come up with the idea! His inspo must’ve definitely been Game of the Thrones Red Wedding. Anyway, Redddddd!! Taylor Swift must be pleased with herself.

6 Items That Will Get You Noticed at NYFW

on

 These six fashion editor approved essentials are sure to get you noticed this fashion week…

      1. Cool Outerwear: A/W fashion week falls in the beginning of February every year so it’s inevitable that outerwear will be a staple of your ensemble. Our fave for the past couple of seasons has been the tomboy-chic bomber also referred to as a varsity jacket. The best way to get noticed by the massive heard of street style photogs patrolling NYC during NYFW is by choosing one in a bold print. Floral or a black and white window pane print are our top picks.
      2. Wild Carryall: Whether you’re a blogger going from show to show or just a fashionable onlooker checking out the runway via Style.com, having a chic carryall in your closet is a must. All-over logo prints are everywhere for Spring. If incorporating them into a piece of clothing is too much, why not try an accessory? We like the MCM’s revamped backpack – they had a serious moment in the 90s hip hop scene. (Can’t you totally see Lil Kim rocking one?!) And, hey, IT IS Throwback Thursday, after all!
      3. Shades: When getting snapped avoid the curse of camera shyness while, ahem, covering up your unwanted eye circles with a kooky pair of sunnies. The weeklong cycle of parties, shows, and madness are bound to take their toll and when they do show ’em who’s boss. Take charge with a wacky color or bold-shaped frame. Oversized Miu Miu cat eyes? Don’t mind if we do!
      4. Ankle Strap Heels: NYC is generally a walking city. When you’re traveling around the island during NYFW it’s cabs, cabs, cabs. And, the subway, sometimes – if we have to. If your main mode of transport for the week will bring you from cab to curb, wear your heels! Right now we are mega-obsessed with ankle-strap pumps. Splurge on a pair of Alexander Wang’s or steal these floral print statement-makers from Target for $29.99.
      5. Phone Charger: I mean, the whole point of going to NYFW is to brag about it on Instagram, right? Yeah, we thought so. With all the snapping you’ll be doing it’s a smart move or shall we say power play to suit ip your iPhone with an all-in-one case charger. Because, let’s be honest – having a dead battery in NOT CHIC.
      6. Crop Top: If you haven’t noticed, skin is in. Yes, even in winter! Show off those mid drifts in a transitional winter-to-spring boxy crop top. Feeling eccentric? Pair it with a matching bottom – cigarette pants or a full skirt – for a suit that is sure to get your on every street style blog this NYFW 2014. Maybe even ours? 😉
