Ming Xi for Jitrois Fall 2013

Out of all the fashion weeks around the world – all eyes definitely fall on Paris Fashion Week, where hot trends are picked off right off the runway. While you may not picture yourself wearing any one of these looks out on the street anytime soon, it’s always good to take note of the concepts and themes of every collection for inspiration while putting together your fall wardrobe. Some of our favorite trends that came out of Paris Fashion Week included: Stella McCartney’s “tractor soles”, menswear slacks, the return of the 1990s (think back to Courtney Love, baby doll dresses, plaid, and wet hair), and purple as a statement color.

If I had to choose one, this would probably be my favorite. Not that I would wear it, but I do like the two-tone to the dress with the lace overlay. The overall design is just very flattering and unique. Plus it’s the least gloomy-looking.

This would probably work better for a red carpet event in my opinion.

The dress’s silhouette and color contrast creates so much drama that it wouldn’t be easy to pull off.

All I can say is… at least it’s not all black!

This has to be my least favorite since from far it actually looks kind of cheap (sorry Vera!) and that’s not how a Vera Wang dress is supposed to look like! The details cannot be seen and the shape is not the most flattering.

Again, I feel this dress is also more appropriate for a fancy party or show rather than a wedding. Who wants to get married looking so dark and gloomy?

Who Wore What at Audrey’s Night Out 2011

“Audrey’s Night Out is filled with free booze, fashion plus lots of hot girls and guys. If you could only pick one, what would you choose?” While other people may be there for the alcohol and the hotties, I was there for the fashion. Here’s my fashion picks for the night:

1. Classic Cocktail Dresses
Simplicity speaks louder than you think. I am loving Nikki Soohoo’s cocktail dress here with the heart neckline and black and nude contrast. It hugs her in all the right places and she looks absolutely stunning.
