Simply Audree Kate: Earthed Denim

New York City-based blogger, Audree Kate, otherwise known as Simply Audree Kate, dresses up for our Fall 2016 Look Book! Audree’s sun-kissed highlights and contagious smile are  just two of the reasons she’s featured in this year’s summer to fall style transition. The budding stylist’s unique take on her personal style is the third. “A mix between your grandmother’s vintage floral couch and a rock concert. It’s feminine yet edgy, and has a vintage twist,” mentions Audree. She paired her classic denim jacket with a long sleeve pinstripe button down. The sleeves of the button down are rolled over to the cuffs of the denim jacket, giving the look an urban flare and seriousness while still being laid back. The tiered and velvet skirt is the perfect shade for fall: olive green. The subtle hue blends with all the colors that come with autumn. She doesn’t let the earth tones stop there; Audree dons a pair of cognac colored mules. She finishes her outfit off with sunglasses and a dazzling gold statement necklace. We’ve got three more look book features to add …

Vivienne Hu Spring/Summer 2017 NYFW Runway Show

Vivienne Hu Spring/Summer 2017: For the Confident and Sexy Woman

New York-based designer, Vivienne Hu, opened her fifth New York Fashion Week show with an upbeat pop melody from live performers. Soft ruffles, masculine silhouettes, and an array of prints and textures drifted down the runway for Hu’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection. Her line paid tribute to New Yorkers after the 9/11 attacks with her color palette taking on the hues of the Tribute in Light photo, the “two light beams illuminating the Manhattan skyline.” Hu played with minimal fabrics – only showcasing a delicate approach to spring style with sheer, lace, and silk textiles. While her selection of fabrics was narrow, Hu’s prints, color scheme, and texture made for a wild assortment. We asked the designer who is a ‘Vivienne Hu’ woman and she replied a “woman who knows that fashion is a powerful weapon.” The military green and masculine silhouettes that flaunted the runway also put a spotlight on Hu’s mention of ‘confident’ and ‘sexy’ women are who she sees wearing her pieces. Hu’s SS17 lineup truly gives the modern woman a great number of choices …

AbstractSmile: Bold Lips, Mom Jeans and a Bomber Jacket 

Stephanie Campian, better known by her blog name, ABSTRACTSMILE fronts YHM’s fall 2016 Look Book in her new obsession, the bomber jacket. Campian’s look screams “edge” with her black leather choker and black heel booties! She keeps it simple beneath the bomber with a basic silk camisole and mom jeans. The dark shades accommodate the season’s ambiance and color scheme. Bomber jackets are great for the transition to fall because, unlike a parka, it accommodates this period where you leave in the morning and it’s frigid; but by the time you leave school or work, it’s smoldering hot out. She throws on a black leather messenger with iron-ons for an added retro feel. The iron-ons give the pack a thrift shop look. The cat-eye sunglasses takes care of the rest alongside the bold red lip splashed against the demure canvas. By Sunny Tsao | Photography: Nicholas Perrone

6 Must Try Fall Bag Trends

Diamonds may fall at the top of the list for being a girl’s best friend, but a chic yet multifaceted handbag is the next best thing – if you ask me. Many women practically live out of their handbags. I’m simply lost without my personal carry-on. Why? The reason is simple – it has everything one could possibly need at any given moment: small snacks for a quick bite, high-heels for a potential glam night, a teeny-tiny first aid kit for whatever life throws at you, and the list could go on. Mixing style with versatility is an ideal factor for a student on the go to a top corporate woman. With a new season on the horizon, we’ve narrowed down a few trends for you to splurge on to help you find a new best friend – whatever your price range! Edgy Popstar Coach, $895 | J.

Neon Fox: A Minimalistic Approach to Fall Fashion

Alicia Nicholls, a Brooklyn-based fashion blogger, is the face behind, Neon Fox. Nicholls’ blog focuses on beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. It’s the culmination of Brooklynite style meets Manhattanite, the embracing of natural hair, and the autonomy of one’s mood in dictating style. She describes her personal style as, “Cool girl vibez with lots of edge!” Noting the latest trends of 2016, she allows her style to portray it all from incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year, rose quartz, in a recent blog post to donning a slip dress over everything inspired by Valentino’s Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. Here, Nicholls is sporting a simple, black slip over a short sleeved, mock neck shirt–from Tobi with cotton canvas high-tops by Converse. With this look, Nicholls can revel in the beauty of layering for the chilly weather. The dark hues coalesce with the ambience of autumn and everything it comes with. The basic slip is made edgier with a mock neck zip-up shirt. Converse high-tops are a classic for a reason. They add instant cool to any outfit. Nicholls takes advantage of this fact and keeps …
