Glamour: Hot Looks for 2008

January 10, 2008

(CBSWith 2007 all but over, you’re probably thinking ahead to what you might be wearing in 2008.   On The Early Show Monday, Suze Yalof Schwartz, executive fashion editor-at-large of Glamour magazine, offered a sneak preview of next year’s chic, “in” looks.  All the outfits Schwartz spotlighted can easily be incorporated in your existing wardrobe.   She didn’t focus on prices as much outfits typifying trends.   Schwartz says the key to being a great shopper is to not only focus on the current season’s trends, but the ones going forward.

The top trends she sees for the 2008 spring season include:

LOOK 1: MENSWEAR + SHINE

Mixing masculine and feminine isn’t news, but stealing your boyfriend’s blazer and throwing it over a sequin t-shirt dress is! Though this look certainly isn’t office-appropriate, it definitely works.

SPORTCOAT — Phillip Lim (wool/cashmere blend)
DRESS — Banana Republic (sequins)
BAG — Banana Republic
SHOES — Stuart Weitzman

LOOK 2: RUFFLES + PINK

This look exemplifies the message of spring / summer 2008. The ruffled sleeve detail is a touch of 1940s glamour that feels modern in 2008. Add to it a high-waisted, above-the-knee skirt in the season’s most important color — pink!

TOP + SKIRT — Khoon Hooi (silk blend)
BAG — Hollywould for Target
SHOES — Stuart Weitzman for ScoopNYC

LOOK 3: FLORAL ANY AND EVERYTHING + THE NEW PANT

Flowers never go away, but they can’t be hotter than they are this season. The new shape pant is still straight, but cropped above the ankle. A pair of high heels gives a modern twist.

TOP — DVF at Bloomingdale’s (silk)
BAG — Hollywould for Target
PANTS — Theory at Bloomingdale’s (wool and polyester)
SHOES — Steven by Steve Madden

LOOK 4: ASSYMETRICAL TOPS + FULL SKIRTS

Give ’em the cold shoulder: This top is great paired with jeans and skirts, and will be a great transitional piece from winter to spring. A high-waist full skirt. touching just above the knee, is both the cut and length du jour.

TOP — Banana Republic (cashmere)
BAG — Rafe
SKIRT — Club Monaco (silk and cotton)
SHOES — closet

LOOK 5: THE ART–INSPIRED DRESS

Stefano Pilati created a movement when this dress appeared in his 2008 Cruise Collection, then magically appeared in spring collections all over the globe. Don’t be surprised if you’re walking through stores and feel like you’re walking through an art museum; many of the season’s pieces have been inspired by both modern and classic artists.

ENTIRE LOOK —- YSL Cruise 2008 Collection

The Fall 2007 Chloe Handbags feature their new color, “Elephant”. I love it! It’s like a dark khaki.  Here’s the Chloe Paddington Capsule in Elephant.  Your’s  for only a cool $1780.00

patchlvIs this bag really that ugly…really.  At $45,000 (although I’ve heard $42, 000 as the price as well…still very pricey), and with all of the bags made being sold out (all 24 of them…lol)…maybe, maybe not.  I can’t say I would spend the money on this bag when I could buy a hybrid car for the money.  I’d rather have the car.  It would be more fashionable.  LOL!  Beyonce seems to like it though.
