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.

looking at it

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

AW Crop jacket. If you are one of those people that won’t wear white after the labor day, you can switch this BCBG skirt for leather CARVEN

Short Story For Every Woman!

A chic jean jacket is the mini's perfect partner.

End of Summer's higher-than-ever hemlines are the new fashion favorites for the girl who's on the go. When going super short, replace the mile-high stiletto with chic flats- there are plenty to choose from this season.

This is also a perfect season to start your private collection of bracelets, bangles and cuffs.

Your everyday bag-downsized to a perfectly portable purse or clutch-in wear-with-everything neutral.

For the next few weeks you can still pair your gladiator natural leather sandals with skinny pants or a casual mini skirt like the one Jamie is wearing on the photos.

On the weekends, keep it simple and sporty with basic tees, knits and denim jackets. With a sexy mini at night, a looser top will keep the proportions right.

It's a very body-conscious look, yet the mini skirt can be very flattering. Making it work depends on color- prints can be a really great choice- and other elements of your outfit.

THE MINI

The skirt of the season has reached new heights- and whether it's scandalously skintight, flouncy and flirty, or slim and sophisticated, there's a suitable style for everyone.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 20S

TOP: MAURICES, COAT: ARTIZIA, SKIRT: MANGO, SHOES: SHOPAKIRA, BAG: DIANE VON FRUSTENBERG, NECKLACE: ECLETCTICA VINTAGE, BANGLES: MONKI, WRAP BRACELET: MCQ, SUNGLASSES: LINDA FARROW

Keep the concept of mini relative: In your 20s, a traffic-stopping suede mini, graphic tank top and easy silhouette Italian wool coat are perfect for brave fashion followers. Bold but totally acceptable. Just remember you must feel comfortable with the length. If you feel as if you're baring too much, then most likely you are.

Those in their 30s can still go short-short- depending on whether it's for day, night, work, or weekend. The shorter the skirt, the lower the heel.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 40S

TOP: GLAMOUROUS, COAT: MAX MARA, MINI SKIRT: ARMANI, BOOTIES: BCBG, BAG: BURBERRY, CUFF RING: NASTY DRESS, NECKLACE: ALEXIS BITTAR, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVA

Okay in your 40s you are most likely thinking an inch or two above the knee but on rare occasions it is absolutely allowed, especially to those who do not want to hide their legs just yet, to put on a flirty, textured mini and kitten heels to dress it up a bit. Especially when there is no cleavage involved, and the blouse is not fitted. Sexy and elegant.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 50S

CARDIGAN: TORY BURCH, SHIRT: TOP SHOP, SKIRT: ZAC POSEN, SATCHEL: FENDI, EARRINGS: KATE SPADE, BRACELET: DAVID YURMAN, SCARF: MAGASCHONI, SANDALS: RAMARIM

In your 50s you can pair pumps or heeled sandals with just-above-the knee skirt for a more sophisticated look. Obviously you don't always have to look like a librarian but it is a very flattering look. If you wear loafers or flat shoes you can easily rise your hemline an inch or two above your knees.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 60S

SWEATER: BARBARA BUI, CAPE: VALENTINO, SKIRT: THEORY, BOOTIES: BANDOLINO EVORA, CLUTCH: DOROTHY PERKINS, BRACELET: NANCY GONZALEZ, EARRINGS: EDDIE BORGO,

In their 60s+ it is safe to say women should stick to clean and simple just above the knee skirts in a conservative solid color or black and white patterns, but I am also a fan of dark florals and tweed pastels. I find that mature women who do go for brighter colors and busier patterns are fearless fashionistas no matter what age.

 

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE CURVY

SHORT SLEEVE SWEATER: MBJ, JACKET: RIVER ISLAND, SKIRT: ROMWE, SANDALS: DSQUARED2, BAG: TOM FORD, EARRINGS: SONOMA LIFE, LEATHER BRACELET: MANGO, RED BRACELET: VINTAGE, SUEDE BRACELET: GREENBEANS BY EMILY & ASHLEY, LEATHER GLOVES: VALENTINO, HEAD WRAP: CARA, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVEA

For the more curvy and top-heavy, a bright-colored or single breasted in beige or cream color skirt with a neutral or black shirt creates the proper balance

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE BOTTOM-HEAVY

CARDIGAN: ROMWE, SHIRT: R13, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, BOOTIES: GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI, WRISTLET: VERA BRADELY, EARRINGS: CHANEL, BANGLE: NEW LOOK, HAT: MICHAEL STARS, SUNGLASSES: VINCE CAMUTO

 A fuller-figured woman, especially if she is bottom-heavy, should wear a more A-line skirt and pair it with a simple top, like a button-down shirt or blouse, keeping the colors dark for slimmer silhouette.

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE SLIM-HIPPED

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

A slim-hipped woman should pick a mini with a bit of a flair and pair it with a wispy top, nipped in slightly at the waist to create curves.

Brilliant Rompers

With your flowery rompers that you wore all summer and want to continue wearing them in the winter, the difference between gutsy glamour and Jerry Springer-guest tacky comes down to....hmm... I guess just the right attitude.

If you are not afraid of color layering, emerald green and cobalt blue can take on a new sophistication.

To tone this outfit down I kept my outwear simple so all of the focus is on the romper.

If still not convinced that wearing rompers in winter can be a lot of fun, here are few other ways you can take what seems dramatic and tone it down. (of course going to the bathroom is a bit challenging but there is nothing in this world that will stop a true Fashionista)
