Just invest in a piece that you are comfortable wearing – maybe a skirt, maybe a leather t-shirt or a jacket to slap on top of jeans…and Badda-Bing you are a stylin’ machine!

Spring has sprung according to the calendar but there is still a ton of snow around Boston. Mathematicians agree the temperature will increase throughout the day then decrease at night, so choose those layered items well….

Remember the terms dress pants, slacks & trousers? Whatever! Just do not wear jeans today – dress it up just a little!

As you know, reversecommuter is loving the stripes for Spring 2013 in a BIG way, (click to see posting) and with the ankles slit open these are just a little different and super cute!  Could be fab dressed up with strappy heels or just with flats.

FWNY uh, translation?

FWNY (Fashion Week New York), fantastic, wondrous, inspiring, wardrobe changing!

But perhaps not to all.  Some may need a fashion translation, a user friendly summary.

No problemo!

1.  Stripes

Absolutely no other designer came close to making the stripe statement stronger than Marc Jacobs.  PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (that is a lot of exclamation marks and it is not by accidental button pushing).

2. Bold, bright colors (borderline neon)

Diane von Furstenberg brought the rainbow – on speed!  The brightest of bright colors and patterns, she is after all the master!

3. Black and White

Alexander Wang (OH HOW I LOVE THE ALEXANDER!!!!!!!!!) gave us black-and-white-and-amazing sandals all over for his Spring 2013 Collection.  SIGN ME UP!!!!!

4. Shorts

Carolina Herrera sent these lovelies down the runway causing gasps and drools on an international level!

5. Breathlessly Perfectly Tailored Clothing

You may know her as Posh Spice but reversecommuter knows her as the designer delivering the sleekest, classiest, sexiest clothing of the season, (and her husband is SO beyond mere words….)

There you have it – NYFW condensed into reversecommuter-speak!
