You may have noticed it's been a little quiet around Savoir-Flair. This silence was all in reverence to a captivating Fashion Week in New York. Live streams, Instagram feeds and famous designers' tweets kept me busy dashing around the 'net for the latest Spring '14 runways looks. All of that hard work and down time from the blog leads to one heck of a Fashion Week round-up today. Hint: It's gonna be a good year.
Metallics & Embellishments:
They're baaaaack. And in the best way possible. For the freshest feel, pair your precious metals with pale pastels. Bonus points for beading.

Gone are the days of tribal inspired prints. Welcome back, Mother Nature. Everything from marble to geodes to tree branches was represented in the new organic patterns.

These aren't basic pieces- their dressed up details make each piece special but you can certainly wear them everyday. They aren't everyday pieces though. Does that make sense? In other words, fresh...not boring.
Kate Spade/ Tory Burch/ J.Crew
Along the lines of organic patterns, even Spring's textures have an organic appeal. Until now, textural differentiation came in the forms of leather, tweed, silk and suede. Now it's all about sweet hand embroidery, fringe and sheer insets.

Sporty Menswear Inspired:
Whether it's an anorak, an oversized sweater or boyfriend shorts, women have it made in menswear for Spring. Keep in mind that we see menswear coming back year after year. If there's one trend to invest in, this one is it.
Rachel Zoe/ Rag & Bone/ Tory Burch
Of course, we must pay homage to some serious shoes...can't wait to get my hands on these!

Finally, if some starlet does not wear this Proenza Schouler look on a Red Carpet soon, my head will explode.
