Cue the flashing lights and roll out the red carpet because the Fall New York Fashion Week is finally here! For many of us, this iconic event marks the bittersweet end of Summer as we ogle over next seasons greatest fashion trends. The exciting line up this year with up and coming designers like Meskita and Kempner, as well as the renowned classics like Calvin Klein and BCBGMAXAZRIA are bound to serve up some real eye-candy — leaving us craving sweater weather and the cooler autumn season.
As we focus our attention on the jaw-dropping beauties of the models and garments walking down the runway, though, it’s important to remember that fashion and style isn’t all in the seams. We have a tendency to focus so much on the details of what we’re wearing, like brand, value, size, color, that we overlook what it really means to be stylish and fashionable. Confident.
Don’t take it from us and take a read through these powerful and inspiring quotes from fashion industry moguls themselves.

It’s easy to get lost in the glamour and point out what’s missing from our closets, our hair, our bodies, or our wallets. But consider this: all that might be missing is your willingness to strut.
To that, we say “chin up, shoulders back, and stand tall. Your posture will say a whole lot more about you than anything you ever wear”.

Your posture could be affecting you in ways you can’t even imagine. Slouching is linked to back pain, increased stress, decreased productivity, as well communicating boredom, insecurity and laziness to others — not to mention adding on up to 10lbs to your figure! Standing up straight could help you look and feel your best.
