Tara Luizzi, Tara Styles DC

Art is a huge influence this fall season, especially modern art.  Many of the designers took their looks straight from the walls of MOMA.  I see influences from artists like Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Roy Lichtenstein and even Alexander Calder.  Key trends this season include: primary colors, mod silhouettes, graphic prints and an updated menswear look for women.

This seasons use of vibrant colors and prints can be seen everywhere from Barneys to Target. My must have picks for the fall this year are a statement coat, a colored jean or corduroy pant, a wide leg pant, a 40’s inspired dress, a chunky sweater and a printed silk blouse.  In the shoe department the ankle bootie in suede can be seen everywhere, as well as the kitten heel which is making a comeback.

I am so looking forward to meeting everyone at the upcoming event at Madewell on September 29 at 6 p.m. It is a great opportunity to see the looks for fall and I will be on hand to help you put looks together.
