September has always been my favorite month. Growing up, it meant back-to-school shopping – which admittedly I still do despite being out of school for more than three years. But now, as a self-identified fashion girl, it signals something even more momentous: Fashion Month. Anyone who
is anyone shares my opinion knows that fall’s fashion weeks are infinitely better than spring’s, and it’s not just because of the runway looks featured. I mean, who enjoys trekking around NYC in week-old slush while trying to get your street style look photographed? Not that I would actually no, but I digress.
For those of you who aren’t as fashion-obsessed as I am, runway looks are often views as who the eff would wear that in real life?. The answer is (almost) obviously no one – fashion shows are meant to inform and inspire the season’s trends, not be taken literally. And so, I give you my top looks I can’t wait to DIY from NYFW SS 2018 (New York Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2018 in case you don’t speak fashion).
What was once your mom’s embarrassing bag of choice on your family vacations has made it’s way back to the style circuit as seen on both the runway and street style looks.
Why reserve trains for your wedding day? Adding a train-style cape to a dress or top adds just enough drama to get away with acting like a bridezilla for a day.
You can tie a shirt around your waist, 90s style, to make an oversized dress more flattering, or you can
buy DIY a dress with tied sleeves built in, a la Jason Wu. Now you don’t have to worry about accidentally losing your tied shirt on your commute to work – or at the bar.
I’ll definitely be brushing up on my needle-working now that I know this trend is here to stay.
Call it my love of Halloween, but these splatter-paint heels from Calvin Klein that resemble something from a murder scene are to DIY for (sorry).
