TALKING TRENDS WITH FASHION GURU, KELLY HELFMAN

On February 5th,  leaders and tastemakers in the fashion industry will descend upon Las Vegas for MAGIC, the most comprehensive fashion marketplace in the U.S. Over three days,  fashion insiders will look at what’s to come in apparel, footwear, accessories and even manufacturing.

We caught up with Kelly Helfman to hear about the latest in trends for women. Helfman is President of West Coast Women’s including several shows – WWDMAGIC, PROJECT WOMENS, STITCH and POOL, and has a deep love of all things fashion related. She is absolutely one to watch when it comes to trends!

“At MAGIC, fashionistas will see the most-chic brands and the hottest emerging designers all under one roof. It’s a can’t-miss shopping experience complete with live music, happy hours, networking events, and speakers like Tori Spelling, Delilah and Amelia Hamlin, The Bella Twins, Camila Coelho and more.”

Below are a few highlights Helfman shared with us:

BURNT ORANGE

Orange is still the new black! No doubt about it. It all began in 2018, with rust and a smoky shade of copper, and in 2020 it’s a stunning burnt orange. Not Halloween orange but a tasteful orange take on rust.  Its bold-but-not over the top and its fun while also very chic.  Give it a try in the new decade.  Branch out.

STATEMENT COATS

The statement coat serves a purpose (keep you warm) and should add a dash of style and personality. I say go for a coat that is unforgettable, brave and fun! With a killer statement coat, what’s underneath can be extremely simple. Let the coat do the talking.

SKIRTS WITH SLITS

This can be worn a zillion different ways. From mini to maxi and everything in between – this silhouette is flattering and omnipresent. It can take you from coffee to shopping to date night and still look perfect. Do NOT be afraid of a high dramatic slit. Give it a go.

THE TURTLENECK

Turtlenecks are here with a vengeance. It’s a chic classic that always delivers. Steve Jobs loved a good turtleneck, as did Audrey Hepburn. It’s gone from alternative cool to preppy to chic and now it’s SO 2020!
