White is the New Black

(Derek Lam)
It's only fair that I post something about New York Fashion Week, even though it pains me that I'm not there taking in shows, writing up hits and misses and snapping photos from the cheap seats in the back.  Hopefully  I'll make it there one day and get to swoon in person.

From what I've seen so far, my three favorite collections are from Jason Wu, Erin Fetherston and Preen. With wearable pieces, punches of color and sheer billowy garments that bring us women back to our feminine roots, the three captivating shows pave the way for the ash to snow transition, scheduled to start taking place this spring.

Stark white on stark white ensembles have dominated almost every single collection and black has been predominantly used as an accent color. From structured mini dresses, to trench coats, to pant suits, to floor-length gowns, designers have proved that the classic color combo (or lack thereof) can be paired just as easily with bare, freckled skin as it can with cherry red lips, which is simply why the fresh look is predicted to be all the rage.  I'll need scotch guard and a bleach pen, stat!

Here are my top white on white looks straight from the NYC runway.
