SS19 Color Forecast

pantone board

This image is from Pantone’s website

I know we just hit the new year, and you’re probably like whaaat? Spring?! Yup, the fashion industry is always 1 to 2 seasons ahead. Let’s face it, by the time it’s March the last thing you want to see is more puffer coats right? Bring on the bright colors, bikinis, and sandals! When I worked in retail, it was always on to the next season. It would be winter and we’d be prepping for spring/summer dresses already. I know it’s odd to see, but it’s a smart tactic that fashion week also helps push.

Many people travel all over the world to warmer locations between December & January. Fashion trends start early, and you can see that just by looking at some of the top designers websites and socials. Resort Wear and Pre-Spring collections come out before any S/S pieces do. Resort wear is on sales floor the longest and rarely goes on sale.  

I always love Pantone’s names for the color forecasts, they’re really interesting and creative! What a fun job that would be! The color palette by Pantone for SS19 includes: Fiesta, Jester Red, Turmeric, Living Coral, Pink Peacock, Pepper Stem, Aspen Gold, Princess Blue, Toffee, Mango Mojito, Terrarium Moss, and Sweet Lilac.

SS19 also has some amazing neutrals coming into play! The four colors are: Soybean, Eclipse, Sweet Corn, and Brown Granite. You can see Soybean and Sweet Corn in many outerwear and bag collections, they’re great neutrals to build outfits on. Eclipse is also coming on strong in the beauty industry. I’ve been seeing really strong bold blue eyes in shadows and liners.

Between all these Pantone colors there are so many mini trends bursting out! Stay tuned for more of those trends on my posts this coming month. What are some of your favorite colors from Pantone’s forecast? I’m loving the first four of the SS19 colors: Fiesta, Jester Red, Turmeric, Living Coral!  I’m so excited to see the full SS19 collections come out from every brand. I love to compare and see each brands take on the color trends, and how they create pieces from them. Bring on the fun colors and warmer weather!

All About Neon

Y’all remember North West in her neon outfits right? This is a huge trend right now leading into SS19. North and Kim have been wearing these key trending pieces since last September! From athleisure, to dresses, to accessories, they have been setting the tone in this trend. This created such a huge buzz for almost every brand out there to jump on this neon craze!

I remember when North and Kim came out in these outfits everyone was loving North’s outfit. The matching neon purse, dress, and glasses! Peep the neon hair tie!

Kim K was spotted last year in Paris at the Louis Vuitton fashion show wearing a Louis Vuitton jacket as a dress. The jacket had interesting pockets and pouches attached to it. Smart idea for carrying all your personals without a purse.

Last June, Sarah Paulson was wearing this bright neon dress for the Oceans 8 premiere. Not a fan of the purse, it looks more like a dust bag to me. The dress though was gorgeous, and it’s from Prada’s Fall 18 collection. She definitely stood out at the premiere in this electric color.

Blake, she’s one of my all time favorite fashion icons. I absolutely ADORE her and her style. I love that she’s her own stylist and doesn’t have someone choose for her. She has an assistant who helps her call in looks, but mainly it’s her talking to specific designers. I’m loving this look of neon green with a mix of fuchsia lips and heels. It’s a great contrast, and suits her skin tone so well.

Golden Globes Fashun

The Golden Globes are this Sunday, who’s going to be watching? What about the amazing red carpet lewks?! I know some people don’t like watching the entire show, but I’m all about the red carpet looks when it comes to the awards season. I think a lot of people are, and they’re also a great way for designers to spread key trends for the upcoming season. 

Do you remember any of last year’s lewks? Almost everyone was wearing black for the #MeToo movement. I personally love to wear black, it’s very flattering and makes you stand out more. Here’s a refresher and some of my favorites from last years looks:

 

Nicole Kidman in Givenchy Couture with Fred Leighton jewelry

So classy, and chic! I adore Nicole!

Alison Brie with Bulgari jewelry

Simply stunning, loving the necklace with this dress and up-do on her!

Saoirse Ronan in Versace Atelier

Saoirse is one of my favorite up and coming actresses! She’s soooo good in ‘Lady Bird’ and ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ If you haven’t seen them, do it! Thank me later.

Penelope Cruz in Ralph & Russo Couture

Love black lace for any occasion!

Screen Shot 2019-01-02 at 9.20.44 PM

Gal Gadot in Tom Ford and Tiffany & Co. jewelry

This looks more of a party outfit, rather than an awards show look. But, it works so well on Gal!

Screen Shot 2019-01-02 at 9.18.32 PM

Tracee Ellis Ross in Marc Jacobs and Irene Neuwirth jewelry

Looking gorg as always! Loving the shoulder detail!

Naomi Campbell in Jean Paul Gaultier

Gorgeous gown on her! I love a sleek, straight hair look for long gowns. It looks so sexy and helps emphasize the gown more.

Helen Mirren in Zuhair Murad and Stuart Weitzman shoes with a Judith Leiber Couture bag

Sexy and elegant look for her.

Diane Kruger in Prada

Diane’s look was definitely my top favorite! Everything from the dress, the details, her hair, looked so stunning and on point. The beaded cape, gave me this goth bride vibe, and it looked amazing on her! Love, love, love!!

Screen Shot 2019-01-02 at 9.15.51 PM

Claire Foy in Stella McCartney and Christian Louboutin shoes

My favorite Queen, she looked beautiful in a sexy and simple suit. The bold red lip was a perfect touch!

Leopard Love

One of the biggest trends this season is, leopard! I’m sure you’ve seen this print everywhere and on everything! This trend has hit every category from clothing, to shoes, and accessories! I’m a huge fan of animal print, especially when it’s around Fall/Winter with the cooler weather. 

I’ve been looking through manyyy sites to see which brands have some amazing pieces. Literally every brand today has some leopard print and prices vary greatly. Usually for smaller trends I tend to not invest so much into them. I can usually tell when it’s something that will continue through seasons or not.  Instead, I buy from a more affordable brand. That way I don’t feel guilty having to donate that out within a year. I love a bold statement piece, whether that’s a knit or some booties! Scroll down and enjoy some of the amazing pieces I found for you!

 

TOPSHOP

T

Where my petite gals at?! This faux fur beauty is in Petite sizing and it’s $130

Another huge trend is suiting for women, and with this you’re hitting both right on the target! Leopard and suiting, yes please! It’s $210 at Topshop, you can find your size here.

T3

Fur pouch anyone? Accessories with a statement! It’s $55 

T4

I’m personally obsessed with booties, I mean they’re so trendy and comfortable. I’m all about getting some extra height with the comfort of a chunky heel! This beauty is $150

 

ALICE + OLIVIA 

B

This beauty has metallic Baroque and quilted velvet panels, a Peter Pan collar, and it’s made in India! It’s rather on the expensive side, but it’s a great investment piece you can revive each year. You can find it at Bloomingdale’s for $795

 

PARKER

Long bell sleeves, a contemporary fit, popular color top from Parker for $248

CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA 

b-shoes-e1541393106971.jpeg

Contoured cat detailing (yes please) in the front, pointed toe, velvet material, and made in Italy! Charlotte Olympia is one of my all time favorite women’s shoe designers!  Bloomingdale’s carries this gem and it’s $510!

 

AQUA CASHMERE 

B knit

These types of printed knits are everywhere, and you can find them in so many different fabrics/colors! This specific one is cashmere from Aqua. It has a distressed look and it’s a part of the 100% Bloomingdale’s collection. It’s currently on sale (yes!) for $138.60 on the Bloomingdale’s website.

I hope you enjoyed this post on the leopard craze and found something you liked! Everything is linked to where I found them and I stated the prices as well, for your ease of searching *wink* What’s your favorite piece from this post? Thanks for stopping by loves!

Shirt dresses forever!

The weather has been pretty cool early mornings and at nights here in LA. We’re still getting mid 80 degrees here during the day though! That hasn’t stopped me from wearing my favorite shirt dresses out. Shirt dresses are so comfortable and easy to throw on and go! They’re the summer rompers to my Fall/Winter wardrobe, haha. Anyone else agree?

My favorite is also playing around with a fun hat, belt, and some jewelry to create a full look. Hope you guys enjoyed these links, let me know if you ended up purchasing any! I’d love to know which one you got, and how the fit is for you! Happy weekend loves!

Paris Fashion Week. Oui s’il vous plaît!

chanel PFW 18

Paris is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world. Si romantique! Not only is it SO gorgeous, it’s home to one of the “Big Four” fashion weeks! Probably one of the most popular fashion weeks. Many great shows happened in PFW which started September 24th and ended on October 2nd.

One of my all time favorite shows from Paris was Chanel! Duh. Chanel didn’t only have one of the greatest collections this season, the setup for the show was visually simulating! Literally one of the most creative and realistic looking setups I’ve seen. Kudos to the visual team who brought that to life! Karl Lagerfeld created a beach, with sand and real water. No seriously, there was a boardwalk and tiki huts at the Grand Palais!!

What was great about Karl’s show this year was a movement towards feminism and the relaxed touches he added to each look. Some models were barefoot, others in sneakers throughout the runway show. He ditched the heels and created a comfortable catwalk for his models. Some of his looks even had a laid back look with black leggings. I know some people in the industry were like “whaaaaat” but majority of us were like “heck yes!!!” It’s about damn time leggings make it on the designer runway and I’m all for his looks. The show was just amazing, and so many people were pleased with his take on the new SS19 collection.

Lagerfeld seriously made such great pieces for this SS19, there was denim lace! He displayed all the trends happening now with the biker shorts, sundresses, and sneakers. I loved seeing him bring back the 90s vibe with rhinestone accessories and belts that spelled out ‘CHANEL’

His collection was  all about feeling good, and looking effortlessly put together. Now that’s a lewk so many of us are excited about! I hope you enjoyed this post on Chanel, one of my all time favorite designers. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think about his fashion movement!
