Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Neiman Marcus Fall 2012 Trend event at their Newport Beach store. Fall is my absolute favorite season for fashion, and every summer I anxiously await the arrival of my September issues. So, when it came time to attend the press & media event at Neiman’s, I couldn’t have been more excited!
Attendees were greeted with tasty bites, smoothies and iced latte’s… a wonderful way to kickstart the morning before the presentation of fall trends. Some of my favorite looks included: leather leggings, smoking slippers, and beautifully tailored jackets. I had to keep myself from drooling over a gorgeous Tom Ford jacket and my favorite studded Valentino pumps (a girl can dream)! Once this heat wave we have been having subsides, I will be ready to incorporate the essential fall trends presented by Neiman Marcus:
Mixed Greens – solo or in combination, greens spruce up any wardrobe
Navy : The New Neutral – pair it up with black or brights
Borrowed From The Boys – menswear influences tailor-made for her.
The Smoking Slipper – the luxury loafer is flat-out chic.
The Jacket – goes over everything – keep it top of mind.
The Leather Leg – second-skin tight or cut like a trouser, leather has legs.
Digital Prints – patterns made modern.
The High-Impact Handbag – size and details matter.
Brooches – one adds newness, a cluster adds drama.
The Fall Face – get juiced with the cherry lip.
