The street style for this season’s NYC Fashion Week presented more casual sportswear, color blocking details, wide legged pants, and an array of textures. We’ve noticed the women bundled up in comfortable oversized silhouettes and ditched the constricting skinny jeans. Women wore comfortable pieces with small athletic details such as contrast piping down the side of pants, drawstring pants, and even sneakers. Bright colored furs made us forget about the gloomy NYC weather as well as the bold mix of color palettes. Large square pockets in voluptuous outwear created the illusion of petite women marching around the streets of NYC.
London street style – the home of bold plaids, punky techno colored prints and dare worthy feminism military had us swooning over almost every look we saw. We love the light yet bold feline pattern on her jacket coupled with the boyfriend jeans! Chic and fun!!
Anna Dello Russo in Valentino reminded us that bold colors and textures are a thing of the present. Her gorgeous Valentino dress – like a story book- played with light and dark hughes and reminded us of the statement colors and patterns can make. The sheer arms modernized the garb making for a mystical sweeping look.
Stiff textured fabrics with a bold embossed sweater and running shoes is the perfect mix of trending activewear with a side of glam. The bold yellow picked back up in the shoes is the perfect punch of brightness needed for this otherwise black outfit. We love the risk in the skirt silhouette and the choice of fabrics.
4-6, 7-5, 7-6
The award for number one match of the males 2014 season goes to the all-Swiss showdown. The match, that took place in the semi-finals at The O2 in London featured two of the most dominant players on the ATP World Tour this year; Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. Federer was hoping to finish is 6th 70-win season while Wawrinka was contesting his second straight semi final in London. Having split their two previous meetings, with the fourth-ranked Wawrinka prevailing in the Monte-Carlo final and the World No. 2 exacting revenge on the grass of Wimbledon, the grudge match would settle Swiss supremacy in 2014. Federer would take the match after two hours and 48 minutes when Wawrinka hit a backhand into the net.
“I thought it was a very exciting match, to say the least,”- Federer
Serena Williams is ending 2014 on a high note, although the start of the year didn’t look so good for the tennis star. Her disappointing performance at Wimbledon followed by an unexpected hit from a mystery virus left most of us feeling like her career was over. In true Serena fashion she came back to kill it in New York, claiming the US Open title without dropping a single set. She is now only four Grand Slam titles away from Steffi Graf’s all time record of 22. We can’t wait to see what is in store for Serena in 2015!
BEST FASHION MOMENT
Every time the ladies take center stage at the big turnoments we look forward to watching them play, but we also look forward to there fashion choices. While the courts are battle ground for intense play, the media becomes the fashion critics of their athletic runway shows. This year we not only loved watching the bold Canadian rise in the ranks. We also loved seeing her push the style limits. Above Bouchard rocks a long high-waisted skort and top with keyhole cut outs at the Australian Open.
If 2014 taught us anything, it’s to watch out for 17-year-old Borna Coric. In October he defeated Rafael Nadal in a Swiss Open quarterfinal. Coric’s biggest win of his career coincided with Nadal’s first tournament since being diagnosed with appendicitis. The new rising star of tennis took only thirty-five minutes to take the opening set after stunning the crowd with a 5-0 lead. We are looking forward to seeing this tennis teenager’s career grow.
Li Na’s presence in the tennis world will be missed! China’s best-ever player took an exit from the world of pro-tennis on a high note with her victory in Australia Open this year. Like Marion Bartoli, Na ‘s last tournament of her pro career was Wimbledon. Sadly she double faulted on match point and lost in the third round. Na has had a great career winning the French Open in 2011 becoming the first Asian female Grand Slam titlist. Her second major win was this January, finally claiming the Australian Open after two previous second places at Melbourne Park. This will likely not be the last we see of Na who now says “What I really want to do now is try to set up a tennis school of my own and do basic things to help build up the base for Chinese tennis.”
BEST OFF COURT MOMENT

Taken during the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, Berdych gathered the men’s singles field for the first “Championfie”. Here’s to more selfies in 2015!
CRAVE THE COAT

We also have your classic satorialist double breasted jacket. This jacket in rich hues pulls together your look in smart clean lines. Finally we have the fun statement faux fur/ fur jacket in bold emerald punches. The idea for all these fall coat trends resonated off the runway this season in the most fashion fun manner.
ROCK THE ROCKS
Cuff inspired jewelry owned the runway for this fall and winter. It’s popping up in stores ranging from both Chanel to bauble bar alike. The variety of different options for the heavy pieces range from lights to darks and often feature layers of different bead types, stones and chains. There is something almost old-world that has us truly jumping on board with this seasons accessories.

Stylized and super cool versions of the classic black pump, makes these anything but classic. These new pumps have a modern yet feminine take and look great when paired with jeans, and skirts alike. Think effortless and chic when rocking this fun new take on the pumps newest cousin.
Art for the arm, the perfect bag can change your day, and in this case your season. For fall we are excited by the bags that transition from day to night. Wether you want a painted piece of perfection or a tweed masterpiece, we are loving Cavalli, Marni, and, Dolce & Gabbana to name just a few.
JUMP INTO JEANS
Fancy jeans – no more. Today it is impossible to imagine a wardrobe without the beloved jean. Denim trends gradually move every season from skinny to baggy to embellished and back. Like sportswear, jeans are always evolving and taking on a new face. This keeps them current and us having fun in them. However, season won’t offer a variety of models, we are seeing heavy on the “boyfriend” jean. We are loving the multi colored loose-fitting, slip-on styles that couple with with a high belt and a rolled trouser leg.
