In collaboration with Simon’s Desert Hills Premium Outlets, I created a lookbook of my favorite New York Fashion Week trends for fall/winter translated into wearable, everyday styles. This year, less is not more – more is more. Oversized, exaggerated silhouettes, seaside stripes, cold shoulders, and lush florals are going to be ubiquitous in 2017.
Seaside stripes + oversized bow front
Polished style truly is all in the details. The beautiful fringe on these Joie Pippa sandals, and the exaggerated tie-front bow on this striped Derek Lam blouse are the perfect combination for chic daytime wear. Both of these brands nailed the street style versions of NYFW trends on display this week.
Cold-shoulder and ruffles
Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles – I want ALL THE RUFFLES. They are not only universally flattering, but give even the simplest of outfits an added touch of grace. Frills, ruffles, and delicate detailing came back into style in 2016 and aren’t going anywhere this year.
Theory has been one of my go-to brands for years, namely for quality basics. Theory’s Desiraya cold-shoulder silk blouse is an extremely versatile, occasion-agnostic addition to my closet. Pro tip: Every woman needs to have a staple silk blouse in her wardrobe.
I know what you’re thinking – florals, how groundbreaking. The difference this year is simply to over-do it. Choose oversize, lush prints with luxurious details as opposed to more intricate patterns and cheaper fabrics. My mantra will always be quality over quantity. This Joie Gypsy Rose Printed Silk Blouse is a perfect fall transition piece, romantic florals with a pleated front and button cuff sleeves.
If you happen to live in Southern California and haven’t yet made a trip to the Desert Hills premium outlets, I highly recommend doing so. Though the weather didn’t exactly agree with us, the shopping experience itself was fabulous. The store selection at Desert Hills makes it a one-stop shop for everything you need from annual school shopping to splurging on the Armani you’ve had your eye on for years now.
