OK so winter is here and boy is it cold! Somehow designers like Chanel, Versace and Valentino found a way to push a HOT trend that will leave you feeling frisky in the winter weather.Everything from transparent shirts, dresses and pants to cut outs and peek-a-boos!
Here we have Phi - the update to the ripped denim, now with solid clean lines and a bold statement of skin.
Alexander Mcqueen (RIP) - has always created elaborate pieces and still going strong - an entire dress made of fabric leaves or flowers telling us that showing A LOT of skin is HOT right now!
And Mr Valentino - always known as the prim and proper seductive designer of dresses has created a flower and skin patch dress - obviously keeping it pretty and feminine but I admire his effort to move forward with trends in a classy way.

Jean-Paul Gaultier - these pieces are very fancy and I am not quite sure if you would catch anyone wearing the first dress but the transparent blouse has definitely been in style for a while and still going strong - hopefully with something underneath.
Alexis Mabile is trying to make a hard statement and it is working! You can see her panties - the only place I could see this moving forward is on the beach...let's wait and see!

OK Chanel, Valentino and Elie Saab - we know you absolutely lovvve to be proper but what is going on here? I am confused! A full length gown to keep the class and coverage yet it is made of an entirely transparent fabric to show all! Please tell me - should we show it all or should we cover up? Aha - we should show it off with taste and class and not skanky little stripper girls - you guys are soooo smart!
Versace - greatest innovator of their time - Donnatella does a great job living up to the standards and leading the world with the hottest trends. She has been designing crazy pieces like this forever and it`s finally nice to see that everyone is catching up - or is this bad? Does this mean she is slacking?
Elie Saab - very classy and easy style to wear. This is definitely a piece that Ms Julia Roberts or Natalie Portman would wear at a red carpet event!

Chanel - I absolutely love the beading inserted in the cut out - this gives it something extra that is not easily copied by price conscious brands. Very romantic, sexy and feminine.

Amanda Wakeley, Rad Hourani and Versace - They all have something in common - can you guess? Bet you didn't know they all wanted your feet to freeze in the winter time! I am finding these cutout details on booty/sandals, thigh high boots and regular boots. This is VERY unpractical...gorgeous but unpractical.. It is fun to buy one of these pairs but PLEASE do not wear socks!!!

Now please explain to me how this is a trend found in winter collections???
As much as we love it and are dying to wear the hottest trends, this should have been geared towards resort or spring/summer collections.
The crazy part is that we are still seeing it all over New York City - peep toe bootie wedges, cut out dresses, lace long sleeves, cut out denim pants and soooo many more items...DURING WINTER - being sold NOW!!! I think today is the most bone chilling day in NYC but somehow the ladies are STILL wearing those sexy open toe shoes or cut out dresses to brunch parties. (Yes DAY parties - full on DAY parties - gotta love NYC for that! hehe - more on that subject on my weekly hot spots)
