I was asked to walk in the Erickson Beamon RTW SS13 show at The Box at Lincoln Center this Fashion Week. WWD published a wonderful slideshow of the presentation.

A Pop For A Professional

This young professional walks through Fifth Avenue with a purpose. The neutral colors that populate this outfit help her to blend in to the Midtown workplace, but its subtleties help set her apart. The nude tank is embellished by a pleated neckline. The navy skirt goes perfectly with the top, while its neon hem at the bottom pops with a fashionable accent. The black Tory Burch bag is a very popular accessory, while her nude ballet flats keep her comfortable and keep with the neutral color scheme.

Colorblocking With DVF

Diane Von Furstenberg has taken the colorblocking trend of the past seasons and incorporated it into her iconic line of dresses. The Aina dress is perfect for the fashion forward business woman. Its solid black body ends mid-thigh, long enough to be professional, short enough to be flirty. The grey stripe across the bust line is a buffer between the strong black and bold fuchsia shoulders and long sleeves. This young woman pairs this dress with a Louis Vuitton Bowler bag. The white color helps the bag stand out from the dress without taking away from the pop of the fuchsia.

Backed Up Against A Brick Wall

This young lady has a very tough, yet feminine exterior. Her baggy jeans, adorned with holes and worn denim are rolled up just above the calf. Bloused over their waistband is a black cutoff tee, with a tribal print on the front. These two pieces alone would be enough to look intimidating, but she knows how to turn them into a stylish ensemble. Adding gold jewelry including a nameplate necklace and gold watch, as well as platform shoes, helps turn this bruiser into a style icon. The haircut tops off the look, walking the fine line between street punk and high fashion.

Polka Dots With A Bow On Top

This young woman sports a stylish and youthful look. Her navy blue dress scattered with small white polka dots, has a flowing tiered skirt. The bodice is covered by a short sleeve denim top knotted at the waist. her polka dotted umbrella works really well with her dress, and the barbie bag and bow adorned headband keeps with the fun and youthful feeling of the outfit.

Control Your Neon

Why not add a neon pop to your outfit? This young lady shows you how. She wears a sleeveless neon blouse, buttoned to the top and left untucked. Below she wears a pair of short, black leather shorts, which compliment the bright neon coloring of the blouse. Her wedge sandals are airy and neutral, while giving her a few extra inches. The black shorts and bag help to frame the neon blouse, giving it a stronger, more controlled pop.

 

Get ‘Em While You Still Can

As the end of August quickly approaches, and the Summer heat begins to fade, you must take a page out of this young woman’s book and savor those rays while you still can. She sports a relaxed look, perfect for the emerald lawn at Bryant Park. She matches her black midi skirt perfectly with the stripes of her frayed jersey tank, as well as her strapped sandals. The large gold chain is a standout accessory framed perfectly by the neckline of her tank. The black bow in her long braided hair gives the outfit that little extra.
