I must admit, all this winter wardrobe makes playing dress up in the morning my favorite part of the day. The new haute trend exploding on the scene is feathers, fringe and fur.

Who said pastels were only meant for spring? Year after year we incorporate the same dark pallet into our fall wardrobes. You know the routine; gray, bordeaux, black, camel and the occasional purple and navy blue. However, winter 2014 has changed our perception of what the winter color pallet should look like. The must-wear trends this season are soft pastel shades. A sea of white, ivory, pink, lavender, mint green, sea green, peach, periwinkle and lemon chiffon have taken over the New York Garment district and fashionistas are quickly flooding the NYC streets. Take a look at the trend forecasts that hit the runway during Spring Fashion Week.

High necks blouses and turtle neck sweaters are another prominent running theme. High-waist capris and jackets combinations create a casual but classy chic trend.

Tan, camel and bronze will never go out of style so it’s only right for these colors to stick around and make a splash this winter.

The periwinkle blue coat and shearling have stood out among the many of these pastels. This cool toned color is an easy accent with any ensemble and creates a nice statement layered on top of almost any color.

Last but not least a major staple in any winter wardrobe is the coat. It’s the first thing that speaks volumes about your style and personality when you hit the pavement. Pastel coats have made a bigger impact with this trend more so than the other winter pieces like the over-sized turtle neck and cropped pant. Whether you want to stay on trend with the rest of the color pallet or just feel comfortable enough to have splashes of pastel here and there; the coat is a great place to start.

Cat Ear Hat Trend

STYLE WATCH: CAT EAR HAT

 Cat in the Hat

Fall and Winter have always been my favorite times of year. My mother use to always say, “That’s how you know who can really dress”. And if you really think about it, it’s kind of true. The spring and summer months are effortless. Throw on a maxi dress and flip flops and you’re out the door. But the fall and winter, that’s the time to get creative with layering and accessories. The right scarf, hat or gloves could be just the thing to set off an entire ensemble and create a new trend. This fall we’re seeing many trends such as the wide brim hat make reappearance, but the new must have accessory is the Cat Ear hat. Many celebrities have embraced their inner kitty and put their own twist on this trend. Let’s not forget when the Queen B slayyyyed in her Givenchy kitty hat and ensemble during the On the Run Tour this past summer. Yessss B!!!!

But if you’re like me, I can’t afford to wear Givenchy on a daily bases so I’m forced to find a more price conscious alternative. Forever21 just released a beanie version of this hot trend for as low as $9.90. Even the Kardashians put their own spin on the cat ear releasing a kitty sleeper suit by WildFox Couture for under $100.

This hat is a fun and easy piece to add a little pizzazz to any ensemble. Try it with a sleek pair of sequin pants, cardigan and a cute pointed toe pump when you’re heading out for drinks with the girls or a night out on the town. Perfect for day to night.
