If book covers had a run at Fashion Week

The internet is abuzz with images from the various Fashion Weeks right now. I cannot even get on Pinterest without seeing rolled jeans and fancy shoes, or outfits so outlandish no sane person would dare wear. (Although I am liking Carrie Underwood's new yoga line, Calia. That's MY kind of style.)

Fashion comes and goes for me. Some trends I embrace, many others I just wrinkle my nose at. I live in Florida; leather anything will never happen. But what I do love is a pretty book cover. I can't help it. If I walk by a window display of books, my eye is instantly drawn to the colors and textures. Add some sparkle and I'm steaming up the window as I stare.

So what if book covers had a run at Fashion Week? What might we see sauntering down the cat walk?

Some of the hot trends of today have already been all over books covers. All white attire? We've got that covered...

The One (The Selection, #3)   A Wounded Name

All black? Been there and done that too.

      Passion (Fallen, #3) Some Boys   

Even the winter florals are not new to us. 

Some Quiet Place (Some Quiet Place, #1)

We even made CAPES a thing before Paris. 

The Pledge (The Pledge, #1)  Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3)

Leather and fur? Old news. 

Ice  Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow  Shadow Sight (Ivy Granger, #1)

So maybe the designers and trend setters have just been stalking the shelves for inspiration all this time?

Love, love, love this! I'm not into all that fashion stuff, but if you bring book covers into it, yes please! And great cover choices :)

That Some Quiet Place cover is eerie and gorgeous at the same time! Love it! Great post! Fashion is pretty much everywhere even in books that don't have featured clothing on the covers! ;D

I recommend Ice. It isn't my favorite by Sarah Beth Durst, but she did a great job with it.
