Retro-glamour took centre stage at New York Fashion Week for the unveiling of the Fall/Winter 2015 collections. From hair and makeup featuring red lips and pompadour to structured ladylike silhouettes bringing back fond memories of the 1930s and 1940s.
Get ready for winter white and creamy beiges. Oscar de la Renta and Badgley Mischka offered stunning shades of ecru. At Custo Barcelona, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler there was a delicate mashing of prints and fabrics. These seemingly mismatched prints work perfectly together and will help you re-imagine the possibilities of your wardrobe.
Here are some of the best looks from NYFW. Next stop…London.

Shannon scored her fur coat at a vintage shop and is actually happy that it has been a cold winter! Her hat is from Wink, one of her favorite boutiques. When we caught up her on the streets of Manhattan, she had layered a printed Aqua dress over a button up, paired with leggings and Stuart Weitzman boots.
