FALL FAVORITE: BELL SLEEVES

Every season there are a few style details that may start on the runway but are trending all over the street style scene. This past summer it was the off the shoulder or cold shoulder trend that was quite popular with the ladies. At one point it was impossible not to see fashionistas showing off their shoulders with a 90s style choker. It’s no secret that the fall season brings with it some of the best fashion trends. What we are loving right now is the bell sleeve and what a statement it makes. Sure we’ve seen bell sleeves in the past and they can be very bohemian, but right now it’s making a big comeback and we like how chic and glamour it can make any look. From modern to classic with a twist, if done right, it makes leaves quite an impression. Who said a sleeve can’t be…

THE PUFFER COAT IS COOLER THAN EVER

If you have been watching the news or reading any of the latest headlines lately, then it is safe to say you need a break from it all. It has been quite a whirlwind with the ongoing nasty political, pre-election day banter, Hollywood breakups (Adios Brangelina) and the devastating aftermath left behind by last week’s hurricane Matthew. It’s hard not to notice also that temperatures are already starting to take a nose dive as fall has arrived. So before we hit the end of daylight savings time on November 6th, now would be a great time to look for that one coat that will take you through some of the coldest days of winter. What would be the one coat to invest in this coming winter? An oldie but goodie, the puffer coat! Yep – the goose down functional favorite was seen all over the fashion runways courtesy of Stella McCartney, Balenciaga,…

NAVY HUES AND PEACOTS TAKE OVER FALL TRENDS

Fall is by far one of the best seasons for fashion. The versatility, the textures, patterns and layers make for a season of cool, fun style. Back in February, we told you that designers had presented a mix of casual and also polished fall looks at NYFW . What we saw repeatedly on the runway were different versions of navy and military inspired jackets and peacoats. Sure navy wool double-breasted coats have been fall classics forever but who doesn’t like the resurgence of something we may already own. In fact, if you already own a peacoat maybe it’s time to update the look entirely and go for a military style cape. Did you see that one coming? The cape has been a favorite for many seasons now and we can bet our fashion dollar it’s going nowhere soon. The color navy was also a popular color on the runways everywhere. Some examples…

FASHION TALENT & HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

Hispanic Heritage Month kicked off on September 15th and it goes without saying that latinos have an impressive relationship with the world of fashion. Shall we begin the name dropping? Let’s start with fashion legends like Carolina Herrera, Isabel Toledo, Oscar de la Renta, Angel Sanchez, Francisco Costa, Narciso Rodriguez and Cristobal Balenciaga. These are just a few of the long list of big latino designers that are world re-known. They have set the bar pretty high for the newer generation of design talent. Even latin celebrity-turned-fashion designers like Thalia, Jennifer Lopez and Eva Mendes have found success diving into the fashion retail business. They currently sell their collections in stores like Macy’s, Kohls and New York & Company. Besides appealing to a mass market, they are also providing consumers quality and on-trend fashion at a fraction of a price. In the modeling world, Brazil has shined with names like Gisele,…

WHO DOMINATED THE RED CARPET AT THE EMMYS

The much anticipated 68th annual Emmy Awards arrived Sunday night. It’s one of the biggest nights for shows and their top stars but of course, what kicks off the night is all the red carpet action. Who is wearing what and what are the trends of the night is the topic on everyone’s mind. We are looking to see who made the best-dressed list on the carpet and dazzled from head to toe. However, for the most part it was a very ‘safe’ type of night for Hollywood fashion. Nothing that stood out as a fashion look that will stand the test of time. Several of the men were quite dapper and although yes it comes down to basically a tuxedo, it is worth noting the effort. If you missed any of the action before or during the show,  One Style at a Time is always ready to bring you up to speed.…
