It’s that time of year again â€“Â fashion magazines’ much anticipated September issuesÂ have just hit newsstands, signaling the changing of the season, and showcasing the upcoming fall and winter trends.
The timing couldnâ€™t be better asÂ Glamourâ€™sÂ fashion editorsÂ Tracey Lomrantz, Contributing Style Editor, and Laurel Pantin, Associate Shopping & Market Editor, joinÂ OpenSky.comÂ to bring their fashion know-how to track down the most stylish steals around.
Tracey and Laurel are launching their first collections,Â Neon & NeutralÂ andÂ Neo-Western, respectively.Â Â Theyâ€™ve surveyed all the seasonâ€™s trends to bring you the very best of whatâ€™s out there, from runway to street style. Each week theyâ€™ll teach you easy ways to change up your look with just aÂ few key accessories.
Here is what they had to say about their collections:
Inspiration:Â Not-so-shocking news here: Neon is having a major moment, from the runway to the sidewalk, and weGlamourÂ gals have fallen hard for the hot hues. Jason Wu and Nanette Leporeâ€™s ladylike interpretations sent me digging around in my closet for inventive new ways to wear the bold trend, and Iâ€™m pretty sure I zeroed in on the perfect formula for pulling it off in that not-too-wild, not-too-subtle sweet spot. Neon, meet neutrals! Theyâ€™re as complementary as peanut butter and jelly, and a little bit goes a long way.
DOLCE VITA SANDAL:Â How do you instantly chic-ify your classic jeans-and-a-T-shirt uniform? Just add a pair of comfy flat sandals and presto, change-o, youâ€™ve got an Outfit with a capital O!
GORJANA BELT:Â A belt is your wardrobeâ€™s best friendâ€”hello, instant hourglass silhouette!â€”and this one is especially fabulous. The color combo feels so fresh and unexpected.
SANDY HYUN CUFF:Â Factâ€”there could not possibly be enough neon pink in your life. We dare you to wear this statement cuff without getting a well-deserved compliment.
DEUX LUX BAG:Â I couldnâ€™t believe the price of this bag when I saw itâ€”the hardware makes it feel so much more expensive, and the flash of purple at the bottom adds a little somethingâ€”something to make itÂ wayÂ more fun than your everyday neutral.
Editor:Â Laurel Pantin
Inspiration:Â As a native Texan, I grew up with Western overload. But in the new minimalist, updated form that itâ€™s showing up in this fall, I’m really feeling it. Modernize your idea of cowgirl chic with pieces that hint at the Wild West without screaming â€œYE-HAW!â€
JESSICA ELLIOT NECKLACE:Â The sleek, modern shape of these “turquoise” teeth is refreshingly un-Beverly Hillbilly. Wear this necklace with a chambray top, cutoffs, and white Converse sneakers to keep the look cool, and not costumey.
2Â BANDITS NAJA CUFF:Â The gold finish on this cuff adds an unexpected twist. Wear it alone as a statement piece, or layer it with friendship-style bracelets.
As a cocktail ring, this version feels tough and tomboyishâ€”two words I love, especially in relation to this trend!
WESTERN WEAR WALLET:
Maybe it’s the Dolly Parton megafan in me, but when I saw this tooled leather wallet (which also works as a clutch), I flipped. Yes, it’s a little casual, and yes, there’s nothing subtle about it, but it’s soÂ cool. I want to be friends with the girl who wears this.
Both collections can be seen here.
