I'm happy to be sharing a series of blog posts that will be up on HauteHippie.com, with outfit details all here on my blog.  Haute Hippie is a brand I love because their clothes speak to me and my style with its range of pieces from silky and elegant to edgy-cool.  I am loving their new fall looks and want to share how they're inspiring me for the season.  See my first part of the series, a Style Q&Ahere.  

When one thinks of fall wardrobe, the quintessential piece is always the leather jacket.  When searching for the perfect one, I go through tons of sites and stores before I decide.  There are so many options!  And I'm not a plain leather jacket kinda girl ;) This one though.. buttery soft to touch but tough enough to withstand some wear...it caught my attention.  I think you can see it for yourself, but the depth of the rich red color is amazing.  Red is a big color this season, and it goes perfectly with my suede Madewell booties (similar here, here, and here).  This is a look I'm going to be living in through autumn. 

What look will you be living in this season?

For me, NYFW started on the preceding Wednesday, where I went to see the Wenqi Wu SS15 collection - and it was an impressive one to start off with.  Wenqi's pieces were creative and unconventional with abstract lines, geometric patterns, and beautiful textures.  The pieces showed off materials like silk organza and lightweight lambskin that played unexpectedly yet harmoniously in structured layers, and asymmetry with some menswear-inspired looks - I loved the one-piece jumpsuit with asymmetric lapel.
Day 1 started off with the CuteCircuit show, which displayed a futuristic, fashion-forward collection of 'wearable.  They demonstrated pieces which were adorned with electric patterns that can be changed with a push of a button, therefore giving many options for each piece worn.  The lights patterns were embroidered onto flexible, wearable clothing.  This reminded me very much of the type of futuristic fashion discussed at the panel at Gizmodo: Home of the Future that I saw earlier this summer, and it was interesting to be seeing theories discussed coming to life right before my eyes. 
Honor showcased pieces that were retro/mod-inspired, yet very modern at the same time.  There were retro-floral prints, swirled patterms, and 60's style dresses, with a pastel color palette.  
As always, Desigual was a fun, upbeat show with Adriana Lima opening and working the crowd, and fun florals with matching attitudes throughout. 
Hair in many of the shows was simple and straight, and a beauty trend that I loved was the thick, can't-miss electric blue liner.  If you saw my previous post, this was what my makeup look was inspired by.  I usually do a colored lower-lid, but I decided to go a bit bolder and thicker with the blues after seeing the shows.
