At New York Fashion Week, what struck me most wasn’t chunky sweaters, over-the-knee boots, or androgynous inspirations. Instead, I was fascinated by the industry’s merging of models and role models.
But there is a world outside of the “Emerson mall” — a place where corporate stores aren’t always the answer and local boutiques can be just as stylish.
We all know that magical feeling when it gets warm enough to shed the layers and no longer have to bundle up in scarves, hats, and heavy coats. As the moment approaches, the outerwear that emerges is lighter, more versatile, and carefree.
People usually say they care more about comfort than style. At first, this seems like a sensible explanation, but what they don’t realize is their ugly footwear is making an even uglier statement.
Even though piles of snow line the streets, it’s not too early to start thinking about clothes for spring. With Fashion Week just wrapping up in New York, everyone’s already thinking of next fall’s trends.
Ornate ball gowns, crowns, and military uniforms dominate the nominations for Best Costume Design at the Oscars this year.

Not nearly as recognizable as the scuffed penny loafers your grandfather wears, these updated shoes have been covered in gold, silver, black studs and spikes, and come in universal styles for men and women. Leave it to the hipsters to turn preppy shoes into weapons.
