NYFW Predictions With Fashion Blogger Erica Lavelanet
Reader, you don’t need any convincing that a good pair of blue jeans is the most important aspect of every wardrobe, but if you did, wardrobe stylist/Fashion Philosophy blogger, Erica Lavalenet, could give you a strong argument. After all, they’re comfortable, easy, and there’s nothing more ass-flattering than a well fitting pair of mid-rise jeans. And the world of skinny jeans and boyfriends, once so stable, is getting shaken up, because the 70’s are back (aka the bell bottom). Bell bottoms will definitely be the trend of the season, un-distressed, in myriad washes. I’m willing to bet they’ll be a fixture on the NYFW runways, or at least a street style favorite.
Erica, a seasoned New York style star with a penchant for denim, couldn’t be more psyched. When asked what she thought of the trend she said, “Who would turn down a high-waisted flare? What the bell?!” Erica told us how to style the new trend, and she gave us some hints on the other denim musts for Fall 2015.
1. Denim Dresses. Style them with 70’s suede anything and block heels!
2. Wear Your Shorts (Or Skort) All Year Round. Re/Done denim, in a high-rise, relaxed fit, are my usual go-to. To transition these to Fall, I just add some loose layers, like a pullover knit or boyfriend flannel, then always add a little leather to toughen it all up.
3. Tie Your Look Together With The Perfect Shoe. If we’re really talking, it all starts and ends with a good sneaker. Then again, I’m a shorty, so I know good heel. Currently, I’m lusting after these Jil Sander Platforms. Velvet, an automatic good time.
