Seeing Red…

Whether you love it or hate it, the concept of a dress code has become less relevant with every passing year. As time marches on and the retail industry changes, shoppers are prioritizing versatility and longevity more now than ever when it comes to purchasing clothes. Personally, when I shop, I won’t buy something unless I can imagine wearing it three different ways. I want to make sure that the piece will stand the test of time (and rinse cycles) as well as flatter my shape and work for my lifestyle.

Still basking in the glory that is New York Fashion Week, I’m filled to the brim with outfit inspiration and already looking forward to trying these trends out for myself. Every year, Fashion Week is sprinkled with a few key trends that hit nearly half of the runway shows. This year, designers like Versace, Michael Kors, Fendi, Miu Miu, Balenciaga, and more have all boarded the S.S. Check, utilizing patterns like tartan, gingham, and glen plaid to name a few. I have to admit, there’s something nostalgic about this check trend that is whimsical and retro. And I absolutely can’t get enough. Continue Reading
