Anxious to escape monochrome winter fashion? Neons and bold black and white stripes are around the corner.
If you're like me, you are extremely impatient for warmer weather and sunny skies to start appearing. Along with better weather, I can't wait to ditch my unflattering black parka in exchange for jackets, sandals and t-shirts. It seems as thought the fashion world has heard my pleas for happier clothes, and it has responded by tossing in every bright, intense color imaginable in a storm of pinks, greens, reds and blues, and it's also throwing in some bold black and white stripes to the mix. Welcome to Spring 2013 ladies (and gentlemen, I suppose).
Creatures of the Wind and Richard Chai Love lead the pack for the fall 2013 collections.
The Fall 2013 season kicked off yesterday in NYC with BCBG Max Azria, Creatures of the Wind, Richard Chai Love, and Rachel Comey as some of the standouts from the first day.
Creatures of the Wind were lauded for their sparkly Tabitha Simmons/Swarovski collaboration shoes, with popular fashion news site Fashionista proclaiming the clothes the most "cohesive, mature and wearable" that the team has made to date. Richard Chai took a different route than he normally does and went with a more buttoned-up, military-style collection.
In a pinch to find a Halloween ensemble? Here are three ideas that take minimal effort and cash.
Not everyone wants to dress like a slut on Halloween.
In college, it’s expected that most girls will dress up as some variation of cat, cop, witch or any current pop culture reference that allows them to wear the least amount of clothes. In October.
In Syracuse, the common sight is half naked girls (and guys) strutting the streets shivering and shuffling to the next party just to warm up. Guys and girls: if you’re searching for a last minute costume, here are some options that will save your dignity and keep your body temperature up.
Juice Jam concertgoers dressed in their end of summer best for the annual show.
Printed tanks, plastic shades and denim shorts were the Juice Jam uniform Sunday afternoon.
About 8,500 Syracuse University students and music lovers gathered at Skytop Field on South Campus to catch Childish Gambino and Calvin Harris perform at the annual concert's biggest turnout in history.
Syracuse students dressed to impress, prepare for the weather and show off their individual styles for the inaugural day of the fall semester.
Many Syracuse University students, returning or new, planned ahead to make their fashionable debut for the coming academic year.
Syracuse is still hot and humid, so some students opted for tanktops and shorts. Many chose bright, even shocking colors to catch others' attention or combat the greyness of the day's weather. Bold prints, color blocking and oversized accessories were also a favorite.
VPA's seniors show their inspiring collections at the spring fashion show
I had expected to see a huge amount of long gowns at Thursday night's VPA Fashion Show, maybe some pants, a pair of shorts. But I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of garments presented. There were a few knockout coats, fabulously textured dresses, and some patterned leggings (plain black tights, and there were a few, are complete throwaway piece for runway fashion).
When the Westcott Theater holds an electro house show, expect a sea of neon and plenty of sunglasses at night.
Who cares if it's cold? For many of the female concert-goers at Steve Aoki on April 22, exposed midriffs and booty shorts won out, weather be damned. For the guys, mostly white tanks and sunglasses prevailed. For both sexes, neon was essential.
