With New York Fashion Week kicking off a month of runway shows, the time is prime to talk about the latest trends.
One of the questions recently asked in my private facebook community was how do stylists -who have the job to shop for and dress women- break down the season’s trends, and apply them to their own style?
Well, first off – my approach to styling is not super trend driven. I believe that the best thing for me and my clients is to wear confidence. And it’s way more important to focus on becoming more comfortable in who you are then following the latest trends.
That said, I want my clients and myself to feel current! And trends are a fun way to update your look each season.
So as a stylist, how do I keep up with trends?
The same way you can!
I check out Vogue Runway to see the latest collections which contains a comprehensive view of all the designers.
Then I go into the stores. And once you enter a trendy store like Zara, you will be faced with every single trend! You’ll know exactly what’s in season.
Lastly, I pay attention to what the women on the streets of New York City are wearing. It’s an interesting bunch who are always inspiring.

Next week I’m going to talk about how you can determine if a fashion trend is right for you!
But in the meantime, tell me…how do you keep up with the latest trends?
