Fashion from a highschooler's perspective. That is all.

I can see clearly now

I know I know. I've missed fashion week. NY and most of London too.

I was in sunny sunny California. No, not for a relaxing visit. Of course not, I had to go there for a softball tournament.

But back to fashion.
Today I went shopping and went into Bebe after seeing a big 60% sale sign in front. You know I can't resist a sale.

I found a uber-gorgeous yellow sweater.

No more yellow ones on the website though. I might have the last yellow crop sweater!

Pairing this with a denim pencil skirt and a black/white striped tank. Very nautical trendy.

I went back to the store and got one of those sweaters bebe is famous for.
Ladies and gents, presenting the crossover sweater...

I want the model's hair.
Seriously. Tomorrow I'll be with my hair curler trying to replicate the look.

But back to the sweater.
Isn't it just fabulous? Love bebe, love the colour, love their sweaters. Too bad it's 80$$.

Notice trends here? We've got the kimono sleeves, the defined waist, and the long thin gold necklaces.

Tres chic. Going to wear this with jeans and a bright top. Maybe a bright blue bag too.

Fashion Week: Kenneth Cole

If there's one thing I can rely on, it's miserable rain on the first day, and Kenneth Cole's beautifully classic catwalk pieces.

Nothing was spectacularly fabulous though, it was predicably neutral. Neutral colours, orange, navy, dark beige, greys. No unexpected trends either. Still fabulous in a timelessly classic way.

Trends to look out for:

A-line skirts have returned. Not that they were ever out, but now probably coming back as trends.

Sweaters. Cowl-neck turtlenecked sweater vests were everywhere.

Trench coats. Lots of these. Especially fur lined and with big collars.

Skirts. Almost no pants on the runway, and mostly skirts. Pencil skirts littered the catwalk, and A-line was dominant too. No floaty skirts were seen.

Waist. Everyone's predictions have come true. The waist was defined in some outfits, and left deliberatly slouchy on some.
