Sunglasses-Biggest Trends

Today was a beautiful day in Montreal, the sun was shinning and it reflected off the beautiful white snow on the ground which made today a very, very bright day. And, the one accessory you couldn't leave home without were sunglasses, so I thought it was only natural to blog about them.

Big Trends
Here are a couple of the biggest trends in sunglasses for the season: From the top, the ray ban reinvented aviator sunglasses, the Dolce and Gabana MDG line, the Carrera Endurance and finally the classic Ray Ban. What is your favorite style?

Hot New Designer
I also wanted to present the Elizabeth and James sunglasses line which is a great addition to the brand. The Olsen duo launched 2 styles this season and described their line as "the best handmade materials and optical-quality lenses with understated designs".

Winter Shorts

When you think of shorts you think of summer. But this season wearing shorts in colder weather has become very trendy. Several designers have come up with "the winter short". The great thing about them is you can create different looks by playing around with different color tights and different tight motifs. 

If your looking for a great winter day short, try a wool blend short (mango) or a leather short (Joie and Asos) and if your looking for a dressier look go for a lace short (River Island) or sequin short (Tibi).

Fair Isle Leggings

Fair Isle has been around for a while, however it was never considered fashionable until now. This season, D&G have transformed Fair Isle into a chic and edgy trend. Their 2010 collection included sweaters, dresses, scarfs and even rompers.

I fell in love with these Tristan Fair Isle leggings. I think the trend gives a special touch to any outfit. I decided to pair mine with a fur cape however they also look great with a blazer.

Leggings: Tristan
Shoes: Dune
Cape: Vintage

Moon Boots

Walking the winter streets of Europe your sure to find a style yet to be scene in North America: Moon Boots. 

Moon Boot by Tecnica is the pioneer of the trend and aims to incorporate the sport spirit with the sense of design of the fashion world. Their original model comes in an array of colors and has been around since 1970.

But it's only recently they've ventured into providing more stylish designs of the boot and today more and more people have adopted the trend.

Even High end designers, such as Tory Burch, Celine, Dior and Emilio Pucci have come up with their own version of the boot.
What are your thoughts on the style, do you see yourself rocking the moon boot?

Faux Fur Style

Here is a look at some of the great Faux Fur Styles this season...

The Faux Fur Vest
The Faux Fur Vest is super versatile. It can be worn casually with a simple tank top and jeans during the day or you can dress it up with a shirt, heals and a clutch Bag for the evening.

The Faux Fur Coat
The Faux Fur Coat is sure to keep you warm and looking chic for the winter.

Combination Jackets
Here is a different take on the Faux Fur Style. Loeffler Randall, Veda and Future Classics have decided to mix classic materials, such as cotton, leather and wool with Faux Fur and the turnout is great!

The Fur & Faux Fur Trend

Fur is back in fashion this season. The trend, previously a symbol of luxury, was absent from runways and high streets for many years following the controversy around wearing fur. However, this season the fur frenzy has been revamped into a faux fur frenzy. Designers such as Michael Kors, Nina Ricci and Chanel have opted for putting faux fur on their fall runways.

My next blog will feature some of the great mainstream faux fur styles this season. Be sure to check it out!!
