Fashion Finds and Favorites at MAGIC Market Week

There's so much to see and do at MAGIC Market Week that it can be overwhelming, albeit in a good way. Imagine thousands upon thousands of square feet of clothing, accessories, and footwear. I think of the trade show floor as a fashion wonderland of sorts. Practically anything that you can imagine wearing is represented somewhere in the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. As I walk the aisles and take everything in, I'm always inspired by something, whether it's a chic satchel, a fun piece of jewelry, or a flirty spring dress. Below, see some of the trends I spotted, new brand discoveries, and items that left a lasting impression. 

Melie Bianco spring 2014 handbags

Above, Melie Bianco's booth is a welcome riot of color and print. The best part about the handbags is that they look luxe but are actually priced affordably, meaning that you can grab a chic bag without sacrificing a hard-earned paycheck.

3-D floral fashion trend for 2014

3-D florals became a recurring theme for spring 2014, with tactile designs blossoming on everything from clutches and earrings to flirty dresses. I can't stop thinking about these earrings, which are an easy way to incorporate the trend.

Dear John Denim for 2014

L.A.-based Dear John Denim showed another strong collection, proving that jeans are anything but plain and boring. As a frequent denim wearer, I found it hard to select a favorite pair, but the slightly slouchy floral styles are still near and dear to my heart.

pink is trendy for 2014

Pantone may have named Radiant Orchid as the color of the year for 2014, but pink in all shades from fuchsia to neon prevailed on the trade show floor. This typically feminine color injects fun to flirty tops and dresses, while adding playfulness to serious oxfords and a studded satchel.

Hips and Hair graphic T-shirts

Hips and Hair's tongue-in-cheek graphic prints are a wink to the fashion industry in easy-to-wear tees and tanks. Just add distressed denim and a carefree attitude.

blush tones and open knits

Open knits and blush tones make for laid-back layers and effortless spring style. From left to right: Blu Pepper, Potter's Pot, and Very J.  

neon fashion trend 2014

Although the buzz amongst trend forecasters was that pastels are strong colors year round (because seasonless dressing is taking hold), neons are still giving hushed hues some competition. Whether in saturated floral prints or ombré  iterations, their brightness is hard to ignore. Clockwise, from top left: The Camden Street, Lulumari, The House of Perna, and Beautifully.

Gypsy Junkies jewelry and Pamela Barsky accessories

Let your accessories make a statement with these sure conversation starters including cheeky pouches by Pamela Barsky or oversized rings by L.A. favorite Gypsy Junkies
