We’re back! Fashion Friday friends, I’ve missed you.
I have been (and still am) sick. So I’m just not writing. But I miss Fashion Fridays and talking what’s in and out with you girls. Lucky me got to head to the Nutcracker Market yesterday and attend my favorite event of the year: The Saks Fashion Show. Now sometimes, it’s utterly outrageous and the trends don’t translate. But this year, it was fantastic. All the trends translate. And I’m hear to do that for you today.
The Fashion Friday trends for winter 2018: white, color (talk about a crazy flip after white), animal print, pink, shimmer and metallic, floral, and jewel tones. Seriously y’all, the trends were gorgeous this year. And that’s SEVEN trends. Oh my will we have fun with that. Plus there’s something for everyone.
I’m going to kick us off with color. You’re going to have to forgive my runway photos. I had a great view of the models but the glaring lights didn’t always result in smashing photographs. But you’ll get the idea.
Here were some of the looks hot off the Saks runway:
Okay, granted a few are crazy, but I just love all the saturation. I mean check out those shoes! And that orange jacket – I am nuts about that eye popping outfit! It made such an impact when they walked out! Just as it would when you walk into the room.
I can’t afford Saks fashion (these are all straight from the stores if you have no wardrobe budget limit) so here’s a few places to grab some saturated color for yourself this winter:
Banana Republic has day glow yellow cashmere in a svelte simple crew or a big cabled oversized sweater:
Nordstrom has this TopShop knit midi coat in my favorite – eye popping green:
I just picked up a rich cranberry faux fur vest for holiday parties at the Nutcracker Market yesterday. Here’s a Michael Kors one at Neiman’s for under $200 but you Houstonians can pick it up for a fraction of that cost if you are headed out the market this weekend.
When I blog about some of my newest designer obsessions, Dress the Population is going to be on that list. They have fabulous cocktail dresses, and pantsuits, this season in a variety of colors. I want everything they are selling. Here’s just two: red with a bow for the holidays, yes please, and I know the sparkle one is a lot, but go big or go home:
What trend appeals to you most? Stick around for shots from the rest of the fashion show. And have a great VIVID weekend!
