Update your winter wardrobe with a little more then just outerwear! This season we are thinking fur-trimmed scarves, gloves, earmuffs and anything else we can think of. Shop at Miu Miu, Rachel Zoe and A.P.C to get some awesome new merchandise.
The tough, punk spirit has become quite expressive. From heavy-duty metal hardware, spikes, to studs, everything is covered in this punk look. Recently I have noticed that although the spikes and studs are still in, it is getting more glamorous. Whether its a studded white blazer or spiked necklace, the fashionable look is still in and looks like it is sticking around.
This is the (un)official J.Crew Blog. I found this while searching for inspiring fashion blogs. This gives a glimpse behind the design: inspiration, style $musings at 770 (the home base for J.Crew. There is a section on who’s wearing what and how to wear it. It includes the name and sometimes price of each item. It has men and women’s fashion right down to how to fold a pocket square.
Another section is called Destination Inspiration. This talks about different styles in different locations. The great thing about this blog is that it includes a lot of photos, videos and interviews.
I recommend people follow this blog to get inspiration as well as cool ideas and concepts that are apart of fashion without having to do with the garments. Anything from the music behind the runway to your favorite accessories from the runway show, they have a lot to say.
I have noticed that prints are huge this upcoming spring/
summer season. Although prints are always used, this seasons particular prints are small and repetitive. There are prints such as reptile markings that hold some very subtle color as well as hints of citrus. Miniature dots are also very popular but have a very sophisticated look to them. Used in feminine suits and dresses, there effects carry a classic appeal. Some designers used evenly placed dots and some were irregular splotches. Diamond repetition brings a lot of energy to spring. There is a variety of colors as well as knitted versions and jacquard’s. Flat geometric shapes from the 60′s and 70′s drive the vintage inspiration. Another shape used is the tile. Forming exotic mosaics or architectural grilles, honey combs and hexagons are the new patterns suggested for spring. Last but not least, every season brings a garden. Packed floral are both illustrated and printed. This is my least favorite of the new prints because it is too busy. I am excited to see what this spring brings to us on the streets.

This age range is really quick to spend money. The 23-34 year old age group spends more per trip to the mall then any other age group.
