black & white at NYFW

Happy Friday Eve, friends! The day is finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you a recap of Francesca Liberatore’s FW 16 runway show along with what I wore! Words truly cannot describe how excited I was to attend my first show at New York Fashion Week. For someone who has always had a love for fashion and browsed fashion magazines for the latest collections, being able to attend a runway show in person to witness these trends first hand was beyond incredible! First, a little about my look which, coincidentally enough, went very well with Francesca’s FW color palette!
For a Friday evening show, I knew I wanted something classic and chic. But, I had been searching and searching for the “perfect dress” and literally couldn’t find a thing that was NYFW-worthy. I was at my local Nordstrom store a few weekends ago and stumbled upon this cute geometric sweater dress. It was the last one {and not my size} but I figured at that point, I might as well try it on since I was running out of options. Much to my surprise, it fit! Super thankful this dress was running a size too small because it truly was perfect and exactly what I had been looking for! Besides being in love with this print, it was SO warm, which was obviously perfect for the cold temperatures this past weekend in New York!
Now, on to the show! Francesca Liberatore had a packed house for the showing of her FW 2016 collection. While most of the collection featured a color palette of black, beige and white, there were pops of primary colors, such as a gorgeous green and vibrant red. What I loved most about her new collection was the movement of each piece on the runway. Although many of the pieces were more of a form-fitting style, there was still an element of “flow” as the model walked down the runway. Without a doubt, some of the pieces I loved most were the dresses and gowns, featuring the most gorgeous details: from ruffles to pleats, these intricate details made each piece special and unique.
And Francesca didn’t just stop at dresses! There were many outerwear pieces that were the perfect mix of functional and stylish, something that is truly hard to accomplish. And how fitting to be showing all this fashionable and warm outerwear in the arctic temperatures! Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the collection:
