The sun is supposed to be out in Los Angeles today at a warm 80 degrees. Excited! Just because collections are shown during “Autumn/Winter” and “Spring/Summer” doesnt mean that they are limited to those seasons. Here are some great shots of yellow that were on the runway during the Fall/Winter shows in New York. And although some pieces might be better suited for chillier weather, look at the print, the fabric and the cut for some insight as well. Hopefully these collages give you some inspiration to add some color to your wardrobe!

The original purpose of a belt was to hold up pants at the waist. Clearly, the belt has transformed from a practical tool into a stylish accessory. There were all sorts of belts on the runway in New York.. some for the practical and simple, some for the girly, some for the bold and brave, and some that were simply outrageous (in a good way!). Whatever your style, here are a few of the best of each category that may give you ideas on how to belt your blazer, coat, or your whole upper body!
