Changes

In my opinion, this week has been one of the coldest weeks of the summer season. As I stepped out of my apartment wearing a bright orange sundress, it was clear that I didn’t quite get the memo. ¬†So, to get into the mood for Fall, I’ve decided to post my favorite runway looks and trends for cloudy days and strong breezes.

I can’t get enough black and white. It seems to be my favorite color combination season after season, especially in dresses.

Though this is not a new trend, it is one that resonates with me, perhaps because of my heritage and love for geometric shapes. This season, I’ll look for dresses or separates with eye-catching prints, and combine them with simple accents and accessories. Also, I haven’t paid much attention to Peter Pilotto before, but this London-based design team’s work is incredible!

I find that as I build my “working woman” wardrobe, I’m attracted to pieces that look timeless, effortless and svelte. I think the apparent ease in the looks above is deceiving, however, since it takes some restraint to dress like a minimalist.
