Polish, a local organization that reaches out to young professionals, had a couple of ideas last Thursday during the fashion show they hosted at Barney's New York. The runway was dominated by trends - neutrals and military - all while maintaining that cute and effortless feel that comes from street style. If you're having trouble shopping for the coming season, check out my Top 10 off the Polish runway.
- Proenza Schouler Painted Pants
We all know that artsy, painted prints are back on the rise, but these pants are more than just print. You can feel the hard, shiny texture of the layered paint.
Don't have $550 to spend? Take some skinny jeans and pretend you're Jackson Pollock for a day.
- Isabel Marant Black Skirt
It's hard to see the detail in the picture but the skirt is made up of thick individual threads. Each one swayed tentatively as the model walked. It had a bit of a bohemian feel, reminding us that even in a season dominated by structure, we shouldn't forget about rhythm.
- Geren Ford Wavy Print Dress
Everyone needs a few pieces they can throw on quickly and still look great. This dress is for those Saturdays where you need a touch of casual style - like you're running errands and meeting that special someone for lunch.
- Marc by Marc Jacobs Parka
It has all the utility you're probably not looking for but if you remember the cold rainy Novembers we're had in Dallas, it'd be a trendy investment.
- A.I.C. Blurry Stripe Dress
- Sea, New York Brown Leather Skirt
For the longest time, the black mini - in all it's textures and styles - has dominated wardrobes across the fashion world. Maybe it's time for a change, especially with the military color palette.
- Edun Military Parka
I know it's another parka but I love hoods and I love the way it's styled.
- Dries Van Noten Rabbit Fur Vest
IT'S SO SOFT! ... I mean so on-trend for Fall 2010 (^__^) It's one of those pieces people easily overdo by not keeping the outfit simple. Although, I don't recommend matching boots lest you look like a Snow Bunny.
- Democracy of Nevermind Faux Fur Vest & Marc by Marc Jacob Lace Blouse
This look inspired me to try and wear a little white (but we'll see how long that lasts). FYI: The vest is $130 and it comes in dark brown.
- Alexander Wang Goddess Scarf Dress
