Runway Recap: Downtown Seattle Rocks the Runway


Seattle Style Debut

Fall is upon us and it’s time to switch up the wardrobe for proper fall and winter ensembles. From summer sandals to bold… or basic, booties and flirty tanks to cozy sweaters, Downtown Seattle Rocks the Runway Event debuted the hottest trends with a few of our favorite stores and boutiques! From Macy’s to Momo, Seattle’s got it all. Trends are set, but it’s up to you to style and create your unique look!


The Downtown Seattle Rocks the Runway show was bursting with plaid, leather, and layered cozy looks. Cropped ankle pants with modern designs, pencil skirts, and sweaters/sweatshirts were also on the must have list. (HINT: Pair a statement setting pant with your style of bootie and a basic blouse, and your set to strut your stuff in style.)



Playfully Plaid
Plaid rocked the runway with tastefully designed ankle pants, blazers, and blouses. A true plaid piece sets the stage for an on trend and chic outfit perfect for any occasion. You can dress it up with heels and a blouse or take it back with a cute pair of flats and a chic sweater.

Mix and Match Leather
Leather is an absolute essential for fall/winter 2013. Leather paneled pencil skirts, tuxedo pants, and dresses are constantly being paired with and opposite media. Think of this look as a soft/hard look. Taking a Leather paneled skirt, the hard, and pairing that with a soft sweatshirt of your choice, and layering a complimentary tee under, with a pair of super chic booties. The element of soft and hard creates an intriguing outfit versatile enough to go from date to night with the touch of a bold lip!










Love Layers?
Hopefully you do. This season is all about, not just mixing media and patterns, but layering them up as well. As Vera Wang said layering lends a certain nonchalance. Creating an effortless look that may cause severe confusion.

How to Layer 101


1. The key is to mix and match colors, textures, lengths, proportions, and cuts.

2. Don’t be afraid to clash styles.
Your options are endless, for example layer a classic T-shirt or blouse with a unbuttoned shirt (denim with studded or detailed collars really compliment this look) on top and now you’ve got something started. The next step is to add one more piece over that, a cardigan, blazer, or vest always does the trick! The final piece to this Layered Look is adding a coat and/or scarf. Once you get the “rules” down this trend really is effortless and will keep you looking your best.

(HINT: “Rolled up sleeves and embellished collars will make you look effortlessly glam & edgy” – Fashion Tag.)

3. Have fun with it! 
Love the look of a leather put don't want it to look too edgy? Pair a leather jacket with an athletic inspired sweatshirt or layer a yummy cashmere sweater with a moto jacket. The key is to mix and match to create a style that is all your own.
