|It Girls by Jacqueline Moranti|
September is probably my favorite month of the year, if you're as addicted to fashion as I am you might agree. I mean besides the perfect weather, September is the beginning of the new year for fashion, new trends, brands, designs are introduced. And one of the starting events for the fashion new year is FNO(Fashion's Night Out). I'm pretty sure most of you are familiar with Fashion's Night Out, and if your not check out the site, ASAP! It takes place on Thursday evening, September 6, all around the world! If you're in the Philadelphia area, make sure you check out all the awesome events happening, i've already built my itinerary! Figuring out where to go is a big part of that night, but so is what to wear. Since you will be doing a lot of walking around, comfortability plays a big role. Stilettos, out of the question! Wedges, platforms and booties, yes! You're going to want to wear something that says you know the trends and know how to incorporate it into your daily wardrobe.
With these looks I've put together, I tried to do just that. The first one, top left, is the printed denim shorts, a popular trend from the early spring season that still has moves to make this Fall. I've paired it with a colorblocked blouse, and gold accents to dress it up. The next image, top right, is the animal printed top,with a stream lined, black maxi skirt. Honestly, animal print won't go anywhere, that trend is here to stay! The bottom left image features the peplum trend. Peplum is super flattering and looks great with so many pieces. I've paired the peplum top with a calf length, printed skirt and tucked a complimentary blouse underneath the peplum top. The last image uses the metallic trend and coated denim trend together. Pieces with sheen look particularly good together, just make sure the colors aren't overbearing.
PS, illustrating the outfits down is such a great way of planning your looks. I know exactly what I want to pair with this and that because I already have an image of what it will look like! Hopefully your FNO outfit woes are cleared away and I hope to see some of you on September 6!
