• Fall Fashion 2013: Work The Trends, Own The Looks

    After a week in the trenches at NYFW, we can tell you — strong lady looks are where it’s at! And we at AOP know that strong ladies are of many moods, so here’s how four different designers interpret what makes for bold, beautiful and in-control…


    Fancy yourself Fresh and Strong? Think tomboy, Brit-punky, edgy… and still feminine! Rebecca Taylor rocked the “pretty tough” look with glitz, zippers, and plenty of tailored jackets and vests — a little polish goes a long way.

    A Powerhouse Amazon? You know who you are, so does Herve Leger! HL upped the sporty-go-luxe vibe with pieces sculpted to fit every last curve. Plus, we learned that accessories galore balance a form-hugging figure — stop traffic AND keep it practical.

    Stand-Apart Trend-Setter? VPL introduced a mix of bold dimensions, flowing cuts and even – gasp! – crochet embellishments. This is the stuff for the gal who knows how to own her look — wear it like you mean it, and no trend is impossible.

    And because The Statuesque Dame never goes out of style… Catherine Malandrino reminded us that nothing commands attention like a long, sleek figure. Keeping it clean and high waisted creates that eloooongated effect… The illusion of a few more inches? Confidence-booster, no doubt!
