Boscov's Fall Trends Fashion Show
Friday evening I traveled to the new Boscov's at the Westfield Meriden Mall to see another of Boscov's Fall Fashion Shows, this one hosted by David Wolfe, creative director of the Doneger Group, to discuss Fall 2015 Fashion Trends.
David Wolfe has the unique and challenging job of forecasting upcoming trends in fashion and retail. (How fun is that??!!) And he gave all of us in the audience some tips to envision the future of fashion by telling us to look no further than the fashion shows in New York, Milan, and Paris for upcoming trends.
He informally quizzed us on what's in and out. Animal print? (still in!) and illustrated how some of the fashions from yesteryear are popping up today. 70's fashion? Yup - it's back, with flared pants, sueded fabrics, and fringe, fringe, and more fringe.
On Friday he put together a fun fashion show filled with Boscov's sportswear based on this year's fall runway trends, but scaled them back so the average American woman could wear them.
Some of the trends for Fall 2015 are:
- Prints/Mixing Prints
- 70's Fringe
Eye CandyAnd here's Part One of the runway show that Wolfe dubbed as "Eye Candy"
You can already see how the trends have taken us by storm with the faux suede swing jacket over a fringed mini skirt, this boldly patterned shift dress, and this cozy short sleeved textured knit top and classic black skirt.
These were three great picks, a hot pink dress topped with a cognac faux leather moto jacket, a purple and black satin dress, and a comfortable 3/4 sleeve knit jewel toned watercolor dress.
These fabulous dresses were followed by a trio of gorgeous prints and colors. A great grey patterned jacket, a classic plaid shirt with jeans with the volume pumped UP with colors, and the crowd loved the mixing Aztec patterns worn by the model on the far right.
And a repeat from Tuesday's affordable fashion show was again my favorite, this fringed skirt by Skyes The Limit currently $49.00, which was paired with a cowl neck chartreuse top.
Then Wolfe introduced Part Two of the Boscov's Fall Fashion show that he called "Easy Wearing" - again incorporating some of the forecasted Fall 2015 Fashion Trends.
Note the beautiful textures in soft knits, carefree denim and corduroy, and a richly colored cognac puffy vest with faux suede leggings.
Next were some easy paired career pieces, with a bright red jersey with a long patterned skirt, a sharp plaid swing jacket with a pencil skirt, and a classic long sleeved shift dress topped by an animal print puffy vest.
Some more street and comfort fashion. I loved both the long sweater jacket and cropped tops, and who wouldn't love a shimmery sequined hot pink jersey tee?
My favorite look from the easy wear selections was this adorable outfit, featuring a faux fur vest over a high low hem cowl knit top paired with a tweed knit legging.
The great thing about Boscov's is their affordable pricing. Most of the items shown retail for below $50.00, which is a great way to splurge on some great fall fashion staples for YOUR wardrobe.
