What do shearling, leopard print, velvet and pearls all have in common? They are some of the biggest womenswear trends for Fall 2016, of course! Hmmm…those sound more like ‘classics’ to me. I really do love when the arbiters of style tell us that these classic items are ‘new’ trends. But as you know, it’s all in the way in which you wear them that makes things feel either new and fresh or outdated and passé. Here are some of my favorite new pieces for both women and men. Did you know that pink is one of the biggest trends in menswear this Fall? According to GQ, it is! So are plaids (revolutionary!) and bomber jackets. I love this stuff :)
Here are a few exhibits on my radar for this season. Has anyone been already? I'm looking forward to the inspiration these give!
Klimt and the Women of Vienna's Golden Age at the Neue Galerie in NYC.
Della Robbia: Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Jerusalem 1000--1400: Every People Under Heaven at the Metropolitan Museum, NYC.
