if you looked at any runway for fall, there was an abundance of plaid and duck boots galore. this was the same at the mad girl fall runway show on Saturday. one major difference is that these models were wearing the original ll bean boot.there were a lot of energy and some great pieces to easily mix into your current fall wardrobe.
my two favorite pieces were a plaid floor length, high waisted skirt which is right one trend for this season. the ladylike skirt was belted with a camo shirt and pulled together with a plaid bow on her head and gloves. my other favorite piece was the plaid bloomers. i love shorts for fall and these have the right amount of a girly feel while not being over the top. i love the bandeaus they were paired with.
the menswear was great. there were deconstructed blazers, grandpa cardigans, and the perfect hunting jacket to wear when you are not hunting and probably have never hunted before. and lets not forget about the pretty hot snowboarding gear.
the mix of pieces were great for this season with the major return of the 'camp' look. it was a mix of real maine style, a small amount of prep, with glimpses of the major trends for the season. it doesn't hurt that meredith alex is an eco-friendly designer. the transformation of port city was awesome. it had the feel, and smell, of a lodge out in the woods. overall, it was a good show.
