Out On A Balcony

In a fall season that is going to be packed to the rafters with references to the Mod era, it’s only natural that we linger just a little bit longer in summer, Hamptons-like style moments.

Out on a balcony

Summer was all about long skirts. Cropped tops were indispensable because they continued the line or color of a high waisted pants or maxi skirts.

For this look, AFP didn’t have to look elsewhere- we dipped into Free People’s and BCBG collections for inspiration. We decided to go for some doses of black and white.

However, it was through Danika’s make up work that this look received the boldest blast of high-octane color: rasberry lips looked extremely sexy with almost blinding white skirt and ribbed jet black top.

High above bustling streets of Bethlehem, PA, our team with John Rounds, our photographer and makeup artist Danika Clevenstine, and of course our beautiful model Chloe Smith was enjoying another amazing photo shoot.

A great photo captures such light and depth that you can never tire of looking at it.

Discovery runs through the fashion stylist’s veins but also it runs right through photographer’s lens! It’s that sense of discovery that’s important to my work.

These days my styling emphasizes balance, from symmetrical to bold-style.

Back to this outfit. This season the ribbed knit material is getting an update for a more polished flair. So forget strict stripe, rainbow styles and opt for sleeker lines and a more minimal look.

How can you turn this look into a full fledged early fall outfit? Add adidas superstar sneakers and ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY ALEXANDER WANG

Lucky for me (and you!), I work with people who are not only amazingly talented, they're also totally fantastic and fun to be around. Don't let a sudden storm or high heel discomfort ruin a good fashion day! Always have your flats handy, you will still look fabulous. Especially with a big, white and furry beauty next to your leg.

In today's look, menswear-inspired basics teamed with feminine details are subversively sexy and so right now.  Layering lends a laid-back air to this outfit and to loosen it up I started with a lace top and wide leg linen pants. Crochet cardigan adds on a classic elegance. Simple accessories like belt, clutch and chunky necklace underline the feminine side.  Navy blue color made news on the fall runways and the long knitted scarf with wool coat both in navy are perfect for chilly days. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to teeter in high heels to look hip, unless you want to of course. Cow print loafers or high heel ankle boots are an especially cool look this season.
