Runway Inspiration: Playing It Safe

The New York Times called the collection "Safe Stripes", in other words-- Nothing New. Zzzzz... But there is no denying that Michael Kors is a commercial genius and always spot on the trends. I admire him because he is 100% true to his American aesthetic. While working at Michael Kors I came to appreciate the fact that everything was always easy & efortless. Now that we are on the cusp of fall and already looking at Spring 2013 shows its easy to get lost in translation. I always love it because the best end of the season sales are now and I not only use spring shows to see what's next, but to get inspired for the Right Now. I believe in carrying pieces into seasons and mixing it all up. So as I came across a cute skirt on today, I immediately thought of the MK show from earlier and how I'd I'd style the skirt. So there you have it: Safe collections can inspire you to stay on trend without being too trendy.
