Happy Monday everyone!
Last week I attended an event hosted by Macy’s which showcased the quintessential American fashion designers, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Levi’s. With Memorial day just a week away and 4th of July just a little over a month away, I thought this fashion show gave great inspiration on how to style for the upcoming holiday’s.
Following the fashion show I mingled a bit with the hosts, Daniel Musto and Anne Vincent. Daniel is the celebrity stylist for Fashion Star and Anne is Market Stylist for Vogue. I asked Daniel to help me pick out some fun tops and he enthusiastically walked around Macy’s with me to help me choose a few tops and then even give me some styling tips. While he is great at what he does and had some great pairing suggestions, I realized that it is very true that most designer and stylist get very confused when it comes to hijabi fashion styling. As we started to walk around Macy’s picking out tops I mentioned that I can wear almost any top, even sleeveless, however I would need to know what color long-sleeve tee or blazer/outerwear to pair with and at that point I got the feeling that he seemed a little confused as to what I meant. Nonetheless, he was a sweetheart and I still picked up good styling suggestions from him.
Now for the best part, I will share the looks from the fashion show and give tips on how to make each look more hijabi friendly which to me is synonymous with being ladylike.
The show featured about 26 looks for both women and men, thus I will be breaking this post into two parts. The second part will be posted on Wednesday. Read the captions on each pic for my tips (sorry in advance for somewhat blurry pic, as it was hard to capture the models on the runway.)
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this fashion inspiration & remember to visit on Wednesday for part II.
