A Fashion Double Take: Personal Style Inspirations

By Jewelrygal @1928jewelry

One of the only things I find difficult about fashion is transitioning from season to season. Luckily, the fashion industry itself has now evolved to include more than the traditional Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collections; we now have “Pre-Fall” that gives a preview into the upcoming trends that will be in the main F/W show, and “Resort” collections which offer a glimpse of that designer’s point of view with year-round clothing pieces. Resort wear, sometimes referred to as a cruise collection, originally started with couture designers and other upscale brands that designed small collections for their exclusive clients who spent their cold winter months vacationing in warm weather climates and could not find appropriate clothing in stores at the time. Now, more and more designers are creating resort collections to always have seasonally relevant clothing accessible and bridge the gap from season to season.

Proenza Schouler Resort 2012- a collection comprised mostly of separates, the design duo of Proenza Schouler used the color blocking fad from Fall '11 and infused more saturated colors and warmer silhouettes from Spring 2012.

Though the shift from summer to fall and from winter to spring are much more drastic, we can still treat the upcoming cold winter months as something new and fresh to give us, and our wardrobes, some inspiration. Trending colors find new shades, textures and layers get much more play, and sometimes pieces from just two or three seasons back all the sudden fit into the look that is here and now. Fashion is a fast paced progression of finding a trend or look we love and making it unique and new all over again.

I have a habit of creating a style board for inspiration that I change up with new photos every season and place right by my closet. These editorial photos and style snapshots help me remember old pieces I have that are new again, thanks to a new season, and remind me what I want to add to my closet. Since I have posted some of my favorite photos from my personal style board in previous transitional seasons (here & here), I thought I would bring you another list of fashion “moments” that give you a glimpse into the Winter 2011 season. Enjoy!

Street style fashion that is beyond major! A fur coat, crocodile vest, denim chambray shirt already score pretty big style points. But that two-tone camel and bottle green satchel really puts the cherry on top!
