NYFW, I will meet you one day. For now, I’d like to showcase one of my favorites from this season’s Fall 2016 RTW: Gareth Pugh. Can we just take a moment and digest this one in. . . Okay, now envision present day Jessica Rabbit walking down the runway with her rockabilly curls and half-tint aviator glasses. Pugh showcases this astute female body by revealing a notion of femininity and power that may be, in some cases, suppressed (yes, I am talking about those Hannibal Lecter masks).

What I love most about this collection is the use of color. I love, love, LOVE the royal blue and beige that is seen throughout Pugh’s collection. The single-breasted navajo white overcoat, over-the-elbow camel gloves, and strapless dress brings chills down my spine. And those stars? Yes, please! I think this is a great rendition of patriotism and a way to have fun with pentagonal shapes. Stars aren’t just for the flags; wear them loud and proud.


Ready for some star-spangled inspo? To get this look, I sourced a few pieces that are simple to wear and easy to accessorize (Yes, another skirt; I promise this will change next post!).  It’s all about flow, balance, and adding flair with detail.
