[Austin, TX] What do you get when you combine epic luxury fashion, fine catered hors d'oeuvres, and lovely libations? You get the Neiman Marcus encore fall trend fashion presentation part DEUX! The second time around did not disappoint as the runway was filled with energetic glam-rock 80’s charm and head-turning confident red accents. Neiman Marcus (at the Domain) turned things up a notch by adding the pièce de résistance, a fashion discussion panel: Moderator (and NM PR) Jennifer Carnes, Editor-in-Chief of The Society Diaries Magazine-Lance Avery Morgan, Event Marketing Director at Lexus of Austin-Cassie LaMere, and Austin Rock Star-Amy Edwards. This delightful panel was both enjoyable and engaging; a great way to interpret each ensemble with tips about how to work the new daring trends and pieces into our wardrobe.
Red: It’s clear this season that if you do not have this color in your closet for the fall, you are doing something wrong. Neiman Marcus presented charismatic monochromatic layering while showing captivating looks of how to use red to make your outfit pop!
The Leather Jacket: This is THE go-to piece that is fun, funky and flattering. Leather has escaped the streetwear scene to become the crucial item of this fall’s wardrobe. Looking for a wrap or cape to go with your evening frock, try a hip leather jacket instead.
Velvet: Whether you like crush, burn-out, or classic…adding the soft rich touch of velvet is a game-changer. This lush fabric can be as subtle as a scarf or eye-catching as an entire outfit.
Leopard Print: The lion may be king of the jungle, but leopards are just plain FIERCE! This chic audacious animal print always denotes fearless fashion attitude.
Other trends to keep your eye on: Modern suiting, booties, soft hobo bags, and wearing charms (necklaces and bracelets). As always…Be BOLD, be BRIGHT, and be BRILLIANT!
