What Bag Will You Be Seen Wearing in 2017?

Natalie Morello

A couple of weeks ago we discussed some of the most prominent highlights of this Fall 2016 Women's New York Fashion Week. We touched on the fact that some key style pieces such as the trench coat, made quite a modern and sophisticated comeback on the catwalks of NYC. On the other hand we also observed various new trends arise for example; wearing an outfit constructed entirely of nudes and neutral hues, is now what designers consider wearing the new black. As much as clothing excited us with the birth and resurrection of new and old styles, so did accessory handbags. Below, shots from London and Milan’s fall fashion weeks display an array of beautifully crafted handbags from various designers that will be red hot for 2017!

Small bags seem to be all the rage this season, however who can resist a bag that can fit an all in one! Jill Sander really went for an exaggerated look with her larger shoulder bag, displayed in a few differentiated seasonal colors for the fall.

Did we already say exaggerated? We can always count on Gucci to show us how to fashionably break out of our shell. Gucci featured this over the top handbag fastened by a muted metal chain and emerald leather strap to match the gorgeous green background of this masterpiece of a bag!

This fall, Fendi bestowed upon us a bag that will remind everyone of spring's beautiful and quaint colors we simply adore and look forward too all winter long.

StyleWeek NorthEast - Forward Thinking

Natalie Morello

After our long day in NYC for Fashion Coterie, we were fortunate enough to sit front row of the opening night at SWNE. Last nights showcased wonderful designs from Evolue Apparel, Jeffrey Dickerson, Elan Rose and Susan Troy. While everyones designers carried their own unique spin on style, one designer in particular caught our eye. Elan Rose strives to merge fashion, functionality, quality & comfort. Every piece retains its own personality and is inspired by women who celebrate diversity and independence. In a world with so much controversy, Elan had her models head wrapped. Showcasing versatility and incorporating all ethnic backgrounds to show that we are all equal is the key to forward thinking. We applaud you, Elan. Check out her designs from last night. 


The Best & Worst Dressed at the 2016 Grammy's

Natalie Morello

Aside from the Grammy's being all about music, it's also all about the look. What you bring to the Red Carpet & who you are wearing. Sometimes we can't even believe people walk out of their house with the outfit they chose. 

BEST: These stunners did not disappoint!!

Ellie Goulding in Stella McCartney: We are huge fans of Ellie Goulding here at Shoppe Pioneer, her music is always on our playlist. So its no surprise we voted her one of the best dressed. This look from Stella McCartney is timeless and elegant, featuring a delicately designed back and pale pink color. Her hair and makeup aren't too much either so it balances the entire look appropriately. 

Chrissy Teigen in Yousef Al-Jasmi: HOT MAMA!!!! While her baby bump is now just starting to show, she had no probably showing it off! Taking lessons from her previously pregnant friend Kim K, she kept her dress to a body hugging white gown with cape detailing. Accentuating her pregnancy glow, she slicked back the pony tail and kept her makeup to a minimum.

WORST: It's always the people you've never heard of before that come out wearing the most outrageous things!!

Jacqueline Van Bierk in Vampire attire: I dont understand??? I'm pretty sure we're past Halloween.

Manika in barely nothing: She's wearing close to nothing & could easily be mistaken for a belly dancer. Show us what you've got girl!

Taylor Swift in Versace: Its hard to hate Taylor Swift, simply because her songs are so catchy! But she know how to work it on the red carpet! This Versace piece is fun and playful just as Taylor perceives herself. She has the body for the crop top, and the large A-line skirt. These vibrant colors are perfect as we are starting to see a little bit of spring!

Bella Hadid in Alexandre Vauthier: The youngest of the Hadid sisters showed up as arm candy to support her boyfriend "The Weeknd". She slayed next to him in this deep v-plunging gown and the slicked back middle part. She accentuated her face with a smokey eye and kept the jewelry to a minimum. When you have the body for it, you can work the cut outs. 

Kaley Cuoco in Naeem Khan: This stunning jumpsuit accentuated all of her assets. It features a triangular midriff cutout and plunging v neckline. It was refreshing seeing something other than a gown on the runway, go girl!

Denica in "random hello kitty jumpsuit": NO.. Just No! You can't show up to the Grammys in something your "grammy" literally sewn for you! The Hello Kitty details, wild pins and angel wings down below is just too much to look at!!

Joy Villa in cagey show stopper: She definitely caught everyones attention! Imagine walking in this? I'd be afraid to make one wrong move!
