New York Fashion Week: Matchy Match is all the rage

by Mary

Every time a designer displays a new collection on the runway, it feels like Christmas to me.  There is something magical about seeing some of the most talented designers in the world unveil their hard work and vision through a full show.  The lights, the music, the gorgeous models with their hair perfectly couffed, makeup flawlessly applied, gliding down the aisle like kings and queens.  It is a religious experience for most of us obsessed with fashion.

New York Fashion week is all about taking it in, spotting trends and finding inspiration throughout multiple collections.  Prints and patterns are not going away, ever; this is clear, this is known.  For spring/summer 2012, we saw beautiful mixes of patterns everywhere, from the runways to the streets.  Stripes mixed with floral patterns, mixed with polka dots- it was a fun, bubbly frenzy of pattern.  For fall, it is clear that we are going back to the matchy match.  Time to take that printed floral blazer and go where we have not gone for far too long– pair it with matching floral trousers! The excitement is unbearable.  This trend goes for anything- tweed, stripes, florals, just go for it.  Matching patterns, colors, and textures can give you an instant sleek and sophisticated look, even with the busiest of patterns.  Wear to work, on the town, to an event, or wherever you feel like going this fall, you’ll be turning heads with this trend!
