Is it cold again? The cozy looks intended for fall 2014 from the Pink Tartan show at World Mastercard Fashion Week are perfect for today. Lots of fur, chunky knits and layers of wool came down the runway of Kimberly Newport-Mimran.
The color palette stuck to the basics of black, grey, white, with accents of camel, copper and red. While the models had big collars, or hoods or fur piled on in multiple pieces, there were many looks of exposed legs and ankles that looked unbalanced. Of course, that is just styling and not meant to be taken literally. However, while the short shorts looked chilly, the excess of layers had an unflattering bulky effect on other models.
The fair isle sweater patterns remind me of my childhood in Toronto winters. There were several looks featuring slim black cigarette pants. The contrast trim or seaming on the side was a nice update to the wardrobe basic.
Maybelline styled the models with a touch of retro 1960's glam with generous amounts of eyeliner and mascara. The nude lip and cool cheek was to evoke that fresh from the outside cold look.
