FAVORITE TRENDS FROM NYFW - COLLEEN'S TRAVEL BLOG
CINDERELLA BLUE Carolina Herrera; Altuzarra ZAC Zac Posen; Tibi Really digging these muted pastel blue vibes. Maybe I’ve just got Cinderella on the mind with the new movie and MAC collection, but these garments are definitely the same color as her legendary dress, right? Baby blue is such an unexpected color for winter, but why not? Who said we have to spend the whole winter dressed as if we’re in mourning for summer? WINDOWPANE CHECK Tomas Maier; Oscar de la Renta This look is so chic.

You can get that hit of glitz without being juvenile and it’s amazing. WINTER FLORAL Diane von Furstenberg; Rebecca Taylor ZAC Zac Posen; Diane von Furstenberg So this isn’t new news, but don’t you love these moody winter florals? I literally have so many black-grounded floral items and I can NEVER get enough. So glad this trend is going strong! SPORTY GOTH LITE Pam & Gela; Baja East Lacoste; Tommy Hilfiger We’ve been seeing so much amazing, athletic-inspired clothing, but it’s basically all been in black and white until now.
