NYFW Trend : Shorts.

Posted in Uncategorized by modman on March 26, 2010

Dont call them Bermuda shorts! Think of them as.. oversized and loose. These shorts are fall trends that you can get now, especially since the weather has been fairly warm during the past week. The thicker cottons and textured wools will keep you warm from the nighttime chill, making these shorts perfect to go from day to night!

3.1 Phillip Lim, ADAM, Juan Carlos Obando, Karen Walker

Richard Chai Love, Mulberry, Michael Kors, Reed Krakoff

Dont you love the color schemes? There are so many rich colors for fall.. which I’m loving much more than soft, pastel hues that dominate spring.. weird. We’ll see how long this lasts! Enjoy your shorts and try and get some sun at the beach or at a pool this weekend! It should be around 80 degrees in el yay! :]

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.

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!
