Runway Ripoff: Next Spring, This Fall

It seems counter intuitive to get all excited about Spring fashion when we’re just now on the cusp of boot-and-sweater weather, but thanks to the (somewhat outdated) fashion cycle, the Spring/Summer 2012 fashion shows are in full swing!

Even though floaty dresses and pastels (why so many pastels? WHY?) were all over the New York runways, there were also a few Fall-friendly looks that are currently wearable should one be so inclined to dress ahead of the cycle:

I took runway ripoff inspiration from this simple combination at Karen Walker: A striped blouse, cropped trousers, knotted silk scarf, and brogues.

Easy and professional! Did you spot any cool-weather looks on the Spring/Summer runways?

      Thanks, Sing! It’s easiest when fairly simple separates are involved.

      Thanks, Rebeca! I was a little surprised at how many designers went the stereotypically “girly” route this season!

    Love the look! I just want to know where you get your pleated cropped trousers from. I’ve been looking for a great high waisted pair that fit properly, but haven’t found any.

      Hey Biba, I usually get them at thrift stores. I call them “teacher pants.”
