When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.
>New York Fashion Week ended earlier this week, and it’s official: NYC girls are over off-the-shoulder tops. I’m talking about the straight-across shoulder-baring numbers you saw for months this past summer. Instead, it’s all about statement sleeves and bold details for city girls. For one of the biggest trends this season, more girls are giving up their basic off-the-shoulder tops and opting for pieces with interesting sleeves. From one-shoulder tops with eye-catching details to beautiful ruffled numbers, I suggest hopping on the statement-sleeve trend because it’s sure to stay for months to come.
