There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
From experiencing it first-hand, I can say there are some individuals that dress up solely for the cameras, in a way that you know they do not wear those clothes on a regular basis. I have friends that find this to be their favorite part of street style. As for me, I want to see how an individual translates a runway look into their own wardrobe. And, when I find these individuals, I become all the more interested in street style.
So, let's get to it. Let's take a look at some trends I saw during this past fashion week, which began in New York and ended in Paris.
I cannot believe it, but this trend is still happening and prevalent. I am thinking this trend is continuing because it caught on among various retailers, from luxury to fast fashion to big box. What's great about this, as you know I'm a fan of accessories, it is an easy way to add a trend to your current wardrobe.
Yes, the belt bags are still here and seem to be going from strength to strength! What I noticed this season was they are now being worn with a little more style. In other words, they aren't "just" hanging on the waist or hips, but they may be slung over a shoulder or treated as a crossbody. And, this trend is definitely hitting all price points. So, you should be able to find one that fits your budget.
There was a good amount of neutrals, but fluorescents seem to be having a moment right now - even if it's a touch of it. I started to see this trend popping up here and there and will admit, I kind of brushed it off. Yet, if you want to get in on this trend now, you may just be ahead of the curve. Will it be the next white boot or belt bag trend? I'm not certain yet. What I can say is that it seems to be picking up some momentum.
To offset the trendier pieces you add to your wardrobe, be sure to stock up on some classics, such as Adea's Layering Tops.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
