NYFW Fantasy Costuming: Styling Comedies with Kate Spade New York

12 Sep

Fall TV is so close and New York Fashion Week is already looking ahead to Spring 2016 and so the time has come for some more Fantasy Costuming. Starting with a very colorful and playful collection from Kate Spade New York which is ideal for comedy shows such as the The Mindy Project, The Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtNew GirlJane the Virgin and even You’re the Worst (there are leather jackets and super cool sunglasses). Comedy utilizes bold costuming with a strong color palette and plenty of patterns because I guess it might be considered inappropriate to wear outfits like these in court or while trying to solve crime or something. Kate Spade New York definitely does the bright thing and then some giving us something to smile about.

The novelty bag trend for Kate Spade continues with a whole array of animals and objects with the Admit One clutch going to the top of the covet list. If you’re after something a bit more traditional then there are plenty of non-novelty purses with some incorporating the signature daisy motif from this collection.

Here are some of the standout looks that would look ideal in some current and sadly gone too soon sitcoms.

Kate Spade Pushing DaisiesAnd Jess is a character that probably would own a dog shaped purse and this gorgeous super girly floral full skirt.

Kate Spade rainbowOne character who really embraces every candy color possible is Kimmy Schmidt and a lot of this collection would fit in her wardrobe (if this character suddenly got a pay rise). Or a cute outfit for Jane the Virgin’s Petra as she does love a cute short short.

Kate Spade admit oneThe bag I am a little obsessed with and a dress for Jane on Jane the Virgin for post-maternity wear.

Kate Spade daisy shortsThis has Eliza from Selfie written all over it and now I am super sad about the lack of Henry/Eliza resolution. Yes I’m going to go listen to “Chandelier” again. It would also be perfect for Petra and her stems.

Kate Spade CapeI would love to see Petra pull a dramatic turn and wear a cape. Or I would like to see this cape in my closet.

This skirt is maybe slightly longer than Gretchen’s usual style on You’re the Worst, but if we borrow one of the leather jackets from the galley below then it is certainly edgy enough for her work place attire.
