Fash Bash 2018 had a true 80's vibe. From the music played to the looks worn across the runway, Neiman Marcus really payed homage to the throwback looks of the infamous decade. There were references to Madonna, Boy George and a young Brooke Shields. Below are some of my favorite looks from the Cat Walk. This year is all about the 80's power woman and the looks were fierce.
THE LINCOLN AFTER GLOW
The models were the only things that looked incredible. The Lincoln After Glow Party was decked out in full on 80's party vibe with pink neon lights, disco ball and light up cotton candy from our friends at Spun Sugar Detroit.

FALLS HOTTEST TRENDS
Plaid – We’re not talking about 90’s grunge. This season is all about channeling your inner Cher from “Clueless.” Think bright and bold prints, wide plaid and statement pants.
Seeing Red – The color of the season is red. Monochromatic looks are going to be huge. Head to Toe color of passion is the look to own. If you’re not ready to take the plunge with the full on look, a red over the knee boots is a real show stopper.
Take it to brown town – I really struggle with adding anything besides black into my wardrobe over the winter months. Fear not though. Blacks sister/cousin color, Brown is stealing the show this Fall. Think head-to-toe looks of layered shades of mahogany, chocolate and chestnut.
P.S.—Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot wear black and brown together – They work.
Ditch the beanie – Let’s face it. As cozy as it is to wear the cozy skullcap, it doesn’t really serve a look. Trade in your hat from college freshman year for a brimmed and bucket hats.
Sequin sparkles this season – Designers show us that sequin is no longer just for nighttime with looks that let you shimmer during the day. Blazers, bombers and tanks paired with relaxed jeans and joggers are a great way to look effortlessly cool.
If you dare, take a transition into night with the glitterati boots that scream “take a walk on the moon space mama.”
Vintage Furs – I’m not talking fur frills, collars and extreme accents. Bring it back to basics with fur coats that are just that. Think Gwyneth Paltrow in “Royal Tenenbaums.” Seriously, has anyone ever looked cooler?
Be Jeweled --This fall is all about rich velvets and jewels tones. Peacock colors are a vibrant way to transition from summer into the cold weather months with fun colors that compliment everyone.
Florals – look beautiful in blooms even after everything frosts over. Florals can be worn two ways this fall. Couch florals are all the rage this season with inspo being pulled from your great aunts living room. Also, the Russian Doll look with detailed florals and fur collars is absolutely adorbes.
Keep it Stylish Detroit,
