The fall/winter 2021/22 collections from New York Fashion Week have all been presented. While the shows were presented digitally this season, we were still able to feel the overall vibe of the season, and recognize a few stand-out trends to look forward to for the cold weather season later this year.

Fall 2021 has been heavily influenced by the 1970s, 1980s, and mildly by the 1990s. We also saw some 1960s inspiration in the collections. Designers wanted to keep their collections comfortable, yet structured and chic enough for city streets. As consumers emerge from their homes this year, after being quarantined and kept at home for such a long time, people will want to start dressing up. That being said, they will want the comfort their loungewear spoiled them with over the last year. Therefore, designers worked hard to make street-worthy collections which are made more sustainably, and offer comfort.

So, without further ado, here are the standout trends from the fall 2021 NYFW collections!

Comfortable Street Style

The Power Suit

Pump up the volume sleeves

Giant squishy handbags

Totally tonal winter white

Cozy Sweaters

That’s a wrap! What do you think of the new fall 2021 collections?

Thanks for stopping by!

Badgley Mischka fall 2021 NYFW

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and once again, the shows are digital. While most designers present pre-recorded videos during their allotted time slot on the American Collections Calendar, Badgley Mischka took a different approach; and it was fabulous.

Badgley Mischka sent out invitations; just like when the shows are in person. Offering the show to a limited amount of people allowed them to present their fall/winter 2021/22 collection over Zoom. It also created an interactive environment where we were able to ask questions, and talk live about the collection with the designers. It was amazing!

In addition to an interactive environment, Badgley Mischka sent us a beautiful hand painted linen along with Mimosa’s to enjoy during the show. Loved it!

Since I was able to attend the Badgley Mischka’s fall 2021 show over Zoom, and interact with the designers, as well as benefit from the questions other guests asked, I have a lot of information to share with you!

Badgley Mischka are looking forward to the fall season; as we all are. They envision a vaccinated population ready to go out and live life. For their inspiration, they looked to their archives, and the New York restaurant scene from the 1980s and 1990s. They were inspired by the chic socialites of the time who attended the Met Gala, socialized at restaurants, and were the ultimate social scene in New York during that time. Love this!

The fall collection encompasses the vibe of lighthearted enjoyment. Socializing without a care in the world, and having fun with fashion. I love all the volume in the sleeves, the sparkling fabrics, and overall fun vibe. The fringe dress pictured farther up in the post is my dream dress for fall. Isn’t it fun? Reminds me of the roaring ’20’s and the carefree attitude of the era. I’m ready for the roaring ’20’s to happen 100 years later! I’m quite certain I will buy this dress before any invitations to events roll into my inbox! I will be party-ready! Yes!!

An interesting point Badgley Mischka brought up during the question and answer section of the show, was the fact that everyone has been enjoying comfortable clothing over the past year. We have left our structured clothing hanging in the closet while we lounge around in yoga pants, sweats, and sportswear. To keep the comfy trend going, yet offer women clothing which will be occasion appropriate, Badgley Mischka has tried to eliminate zippers, and include designs in their collection which feels like sportswear; yet look party ready. When you see a pant set from them for fall, know it’s comfortable like sportswear, yet perfectly fabulous for every party invite you receive. Love this!

The fall 2021 collection from Badgley Mischka will begin to hit store shelves at the end of July, and in early August. I cannot wait to snap up the fringe dress in anticipation of a fabulous fall and holiday season. Which design is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for more NYFW coverage!

Rebecca Minkoff held her spring 2021 presentation yesterday, and the collection was fabulous. A few seasons ago, Minkoff switched from presenting her next seasons collection during fashion week, to a “see now buy now” format. The result? Success!

The instant gratification of Rebecca Minkoff’s presentation is amazing. We can fall in love with something we see at New York Fashion Week, and then we can instantly go online and purchase it. Love that!

Without further ado, here are all my favorites from Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2021 collection; and yes, I see, and I plan to buy. Love!

What are your favorite pieces from the Rebecca Minkoff spring 2021 collection presented at New York Fashion Week? I love the color story, the fringe details, and the fabulous sleeves!
