Fashion week may be over for the season in NYC but events in H-town ware quickly growing. With the fashion crowd back in town, I have a very busy next 3 weeks ahead. Fall is here and while the weather is trying to catch up, I’m stuck in a wardrobe transitional phase. This maxi is light enough to keep me from getting over heated during the day and I added this printed shawl as the sun goes down. Can’t wait to get out my boots!! Maybe next week.
Pantone has just announced the new color of year 2014, ORCHID!! If the 2014 Spring runway shows were a forecast to this gorgeous hue then I am not surprised at all. This tone was used in so many beautiful floral prints during the shows. Moving away from the rich Emerald of 2013, I think Orchid will be a refreshing color for the year. With purple and pink undertones, Orchid is a delightful color to wear and flatters a wide variety of skin tones. It is feminine without being overwhelmingly girly. This flirty tone can be paired with bold red to sister hues like lavender. It also accents the popular color, olive, as well as turquoise. Orchid can also be used as a subtle change in place of plain old neutrals.
