My Jam, but not necessarily Your Jam
With each fashion week I consume (spectate?) the less I try to pick out the ‘trends’ for each season. Instead, I look at each collection and pick out what looks, or pieces of looks I might like to wear. I don’t think I am alone in this either. Consumers of fashion have become more autonomous in their dressing, and no longer appear to look to trends to dictate what they should and shouldn’t be wearing each season. This newfound autonomy is endemic to our culture at large, which is finally, at least in my 20-something brain, moving towards celebrating individuality rather than adherence to the norm.
With that in mind, here are some things that are totally My Jam from the runways of NYFW so far. Some you may like, others you wouldn’t be caught dead in, but that’s cool, you do you, it’s the only way to be.
The perfect outfit for when I don’t feel like getting dressed in the morning.
Ideal summer self = ability to pull off this skirt.
Simple but so dramatic, like all the best things.
Like deconstructed, luxury PJs.
I’ll take the coat thanks, Rach.
For when I want to feel like Misha Barton circa 2005.
Dear future wedding, I’ll be attending in this dress. Yours sincerely, Lucy.
An outfit for when you have no time to change between working at the Library and meeting your date at the bar.
The Thakoon and Alexander Wang shows had a lot of the same elements this season, including the whole CBF getting dressed in the morning vibe.
I think I’m feeling the whole deep V thing this season. Deep Vs and silky, baggy trousers.
Rosie is the queen of making the retro look modern. I owned a version of these trousers in the 90s, but they didn’t look like this at all.
I’ll take everything from the ankles up thanks, including her hair.
