During the Neiman Marcus Fall Preview Report for Media, guests were treated to a chic sit-down luncheon catered by Delectables By Holly. Providing the commentary was Kristin Jackson, Public Relations Director for Neiman Marcus at SouthPark mall. She looked as lovely and stylish as the models who informally walked among the tables to show off the newest trends.
Kristin explained the season's 10 most important looks from Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing and offered tips on how to wear them.
The 10 trends for women, and The O Report's take on them, are:
Bold Gold & High Shine Metallics - the trend of mixing and matching metals, especially gold and silver, is stronger than ever. The O Report is obsessed with the gold and silver affordable treasures from one of Neiman Marcus' new jewelry collections by Stephanie Kantis.
Ripe Berry Shades - luscious shades, including red, warm up your wardrobe as temperatures begin to chill.
Everything Velvet - whether it's a skirt, top, dress, pants or jacket, this is the trend of the season.
Fall Florals - one of the examples hanging in a display was a sleeveless dressed paired with a turtleneck sweater that showed Neiman Marcus' philosophy of buying items that you can wear now, and then adding in pieces such as the turtleneck for cold weather later.
Skirts That Move - longer lengths made with fabrics that flow with the body are the epitome of feminine elegance.
The New Bomber - bomber jackets made with new materials including lace are a youthful update to your wardrobe.
Delicate Or Daring Chokers - This is the one trend The O Report advises women 50 and up to think twice about before trying since most of us do not like to draw attention to our necks.
Top-Notch Top-Handle Bags - this ladylike classic is thoroughly modern.
The Adorned Shoe - there's no such thing as too shiny or too ornate.
The Dramatic Eye - one of the newest shades to make eyes pop is a soft red, which sounds crazy but looks chic. Since the look is so new, we suggest booking an appointment with a Neiman Marcus beauty expert to see if it works on you.
