Almost as inspiring as the New York Fashion Week runway shows is the street and sideline fashion during New York Fashion Week.   This past February, Manhattan experienced very low temperatures, so the attendees definitely nailed the art of looking impeccably fashionable while still remaining warm enough to stroll around the city. Notice the fur? Yes, it doubles as looking chic and polished while holding in the heat.  To recap some highlights, check out these photos!

If you’re a Cinderella fan, then the following news is sure to excite you.  In anticipation of the upcoming live-action Cinderella film release mid-March, top designers have designed their intrepretation of of Cinderella’s glass slipper.

“I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives. This story ignites a love affair and fascination with shoes that never dies. The power they have to transform is instilled from a young age and the fantasy remains alive forever. I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions.” –Sandra Choi, creative director for Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo’s interpretation of the famous glass slipper and the actual design are beautiful and ornate.

Few likely will be able to purchase these shoes due to their exorbitant price tags.  But if you happen to reside near Berlin or New York, these sparkling beauties will be on display at the Berlin Film Festival, or at Saks Fifth Avenue’s NYC flagship store in early March!

Neon Touches

It’s still a little early to break out the bright colors and hues of spring, but a fun way to add a little interest to bleak winter palettes is by incorporating neon touches. To do so without blinding everyone in a crowd, keep it limited to a few unexpected accessories. Remember, wearing spring and summer colors in winter is allowed, but it is key to mind texture and fabrics. Fur, wools, and heavier knits are great options for this time of year.

Collars and Necklaces

It’s easy to pair a scarf with any type of shirt, because it covers the collar up. It’s much harder to select the necklace for each individual neckline. Luckily, Polyvore has a handy little chart that may just save you from trying on each and every necklace with your favorite shirt!

Trending: Leather Leggings

Tags

, ,

Leather is back in full force. We aren’t just talking about the classic leather jacket, either. Leather dresses, vests, pants and now even leather leggings are easy to find. The luxurious material is starting to pop up in jewelry more and more, as well. It’s worth discussing the leather legging trend and how to wear them. Leggings get so much flak for ‘posing’ as a pant. So how do you wear this statement piece without making too much of a scandalous scene? First, find a pair that fits you well. Since some are a more slinky material, you want a pair that will have some type of lining so you can actually move in them. Conveniently, the a-line shirt or blouse is trending and is a great option to cover your tush, since these are, after all, still leggings. And really, have fun with them! They are so stylish. Take some inspiration here and rock a pair on your own!

Missoni Launch Charity Project

In collaboration with the Gold for Kids charity, the Missoni sisters, Margherita and Teresa Maccapani, designed characters to adorn tops, bags, and other accessories. Unless you happen to inhabit Italy, you won’t be able to buy any of the wares, which are sold at La Rinascente stores. However, you can still enjoy their visual creation, which helps raise awareness for the cause. Missoni

The illustrations on the items are comprised of the human body’s elements. The illustrations are meant to allude to the book, which is roughly translated as “The Kingdom of Organia” (by Chiara Segré), which explains to children how the human body works through a story.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner’s style choices have blasted the internet one phase at a time. From her hair cut, to her lip change, to new hair styles and risque photos or outfits, she has taken the fashion world by storm.

Her recent addition of dread locks has been highly controversial on social media, with some fans loving her new “edgy” look, while others complain that what is “edgy” on her should not be copied by mainstream society.

Dreadlocks have always been a bohemian look that many people try and many yearn to try, but are scared to attempt. Dreadlocks date back to ancient Egypt and are matted coils of hair–most are intentionally formed, as in the case of Kylie.

Kylie’s dreadlocks, like most of her style decisions, stirred the pot a little, but when it comes to fashion statements, she knows how to make them and start a trend.
