When I saw this jacquard coat, I immediately fell in love with it. The bold pattern, golden hues and metallic thread weaved throughout give this beautiful piece such a luxurious and opulent quality. I am sure that jacquard coats are going to be huge this fall season and I highly recommend that you get your hands on one if you can.

This past week in New York City, we experienced our first real week of cold weather. As much as I love and will miss all the sunshine and heat, I have to admit that I am so excited that winter is coming. I really enjoy playing with layers and outerwear. There are so many coats and jackets that I am dying to break out of my closet. I can’t wait for all of you to see what outfits I have in store for winter. Stay tuned!

When I initially saw these pants, honestly, the very first thing that popped into my head was Curious George. The particular shade of yellow (for whatever reason) reminded me of The Man with the Yellow Hat — Curious George’s faithful keeper. Even though I absolutely loved these pants when I purchased them, many people were very skeptical about how I could manage to make bright yellow trousers look stylish and cool.
I knew that because these pants were so bright, everything else about my outfit needed to be relatively muted. The black leather jacket, dark concert tee and simple sunglasses really allow the pants to pop without looking silly or uncomfortably ostentatious. I always tell people that when they wear brightly colored bottoms (whether it be pants, a skirt or shorts), they should aim to pair them with a plain black, white or nude top. Trying to find complementary colors can be daunting and really requires one to have a great eye and a developed sense of tones and shades.
To keep it simple and easy, a plain black or white top with colorful bottoms will never look out of place.

One of the latest trends in fashion is wearing your underwear as outerwear. Bralettes, corsets, bandeaus, slip dresses, bodysuits, satin camisoles and silk robes are having their moment right now. These traditional under garments can be worn alone or can easily (and stylishly) be layered over other basic pieces. For example, you can wear a corset or waist belt over a dress à la Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Or you can rock a bralette or bandeau on top of a t-shirt just like Kendall Jenner. You can even throw your bathrobe over your sweater and jeans and call it a day.
I know this trend is not for everyone, but I also believe that if you’ve got it, there is no reason not to flaunt it. And who doesn’t secretly want to wear their pajamas in the daytime? I know I do.
