I don’t feel so badly now being house-bound (and cozily dressed). While wide leg trousers and jumpsuits are big trends next season, designers also worked the Spring 2011 runway with some pretty hot-looking pajamas. We saw all over sheerness, with hints of lace and lots of sultry silks and satins. Alexander Wang showed delicate, feminine frocks with soft pajama pants and kimono style dresses (fashionetc.com). Thakoon displayed some sassy see-through styles that fit perfectly for the bedroom, while Michael Kors paired some hot satin pants with a black trench (HarpersBazaar.com).
How could you wear something like this in public? While you might not want to run out in your REAL skivvies, you can wear lingerie inspired clothing like a sheer blouse under a jacket or a pair of flowy printed pants with a fitted top, to get that casual cool “pajama look” for spring!
Perfect for a night out. Or in.
Anyone who has ever picked up an issue of Vogue should be well aware that September means Fashion Week. At a time when the entire fashion industry will be scurrying around the streets of the New York with mixed emotions of panic and excitement, the days counted before that magical catwalk extravaganza will fly by.
However, for those of us who simply cannot wait another moment for some runway treats, there is The Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk presented by LF USA. From June 24th-September 3rd, this unique art exhibit will feature some of New York City’s greatest designers in the form of larger-than-life mannequins which will be displayed runway style down Broadway.
This exciting exhibit will serve as a reminder to all that New York City is really about one thing: Fashion! While images have not yet been released, you can expect Betsey Johnson’s mannequin to parade about in bright, life-like florals. This is one runway you will not want to miss!
