Our political climate and responsibility for activism are playing a notable influence on the runway now more than ever. Progressing their powerful voice on the significance of the feminist movement, diversity and inclusion, relevant movements such as #MeToo and #TimesUp are too fueling designers. This was one of the prevailing inspirations for many collections for NYFW Fall 2018. It was evident designers took their views of the current political climate and translated it into a multitude of ways. Some collections were inspired by the empowerment and strength of women, some were focused on diversity and the celebration of variety, some were designed for positivity and hope for a better future, others shifted their aesthetic to a subdued tone to project the serious, hard-working, and “unbridled” energy women have in our society today.
I’m so excited to already start talking about spring fashion. It takes my mind off the fact that we’re still stuck with this winter weather for another two months or so. I can tell a lot of you are feeling the same way as this post was highly requested! So here it is, my spring essentials.

FLORAL – We all know floral for spring isn’t groundbreaking, but that doesn’t mean it’s not essential for the season. Who doesn’t love a good floral print? It’s timeless and I think will always have a place during this time of year. When styling, don’t be afraid to mix floral with different color and prints – just make sure there’s balance to the look. Floral adds a very pretty, feminine touch to your outfit without being excessive.
What’s more exciting than having a whole weekend dedicated to amazing sales? Exactly. This is the one time of year you can justify spending extra on your shopping trips, because there aren’t this good of deals at any other time throughout the year. Whether you’re doing your Christmas shopping, or shopping for those shoes you’ve been wanting, don’t miss out on these!
