Think Cool Thoughts: Fall Trend Preview

339

I know what you’re thinking: Fall trends? You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s almost 100 degrees outside. Though I’m not quite ready for summer to end, this weather makes me long for autumn— sweaters, boots, and all. Last Thursday I co-hosted a packed runway show at Bloomingdale’s Sherman Oaks previewing some trendy fall looks like soft leather in bold colors, printed denim, faux fur vests, and sparkly going out tops from the store’s Elements department. Models were dressed in Current/Elliott and Paige jeans, skirts and shirts from Helmut by Helmut Lang and Joie, and Marc Jacobs and Chloe handbags slung over their shoulders. I loved the classy day-to-night look of the skinny pant/flowy blouse combo. But my favorite item in the show was a pair of J Brand leather leggings—so versatile they’re on my wanted list. I’m going to buy them now and hang them in my closet as a reminder that this heatwave too shall pass.
