One upshot of the wane of skinny jeans: denim has become a lot less conformist. Outside the Max Mara show, a guest wore an oversized denim jacket and pants with contrasting cuffs for a cool spin on this workday staple.
Colorful cocktail dress season is upon us, and thank God! It makes getting dressed for parties so much easier. Outside the Emporio Armani show, a matching dress, shoes and bag.
Mia Moretti has a real gift for making everything retro new again. Here in a collared black, red and white look at Emporio Armani in Milan.
A good example of how an all-white outfit can look badass, as seen on Gilda Ambrosio at the Iceberg show in Milan. The masculine cut of the jacket and pants give it an edge.
Maybe you had a Cinco de Mayo outfit ready to go for tonight, but it did not include a wool coat. Because although it is freezing, it is May. At the Milan fashion shows, Erica Pelosini effortlessly turned a warm weather outfit into a cool weather one by adding suede boots and a light colored coat – one that even goes with a sheer spring dress.
It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.
This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!
One of the biggest trends at Coachella 2016 was not a particular piece of clothing but the fact that friends are coordinating their outfits. Sisters Valentina and Chiara Ferragni wore a crochet and lace dress respectively, and Valentina’s pearl applique went well with Chiara’s tiara. The two star bloggers know a thing or two about how social media influences women’s sartorial choices. Girls can get dressed “together” for an event even if they are miles apart.
A rule of thumb for dressing with hippie flair at music festivals: if you’re going to do it, do it with polish. A guest at Coachella weekend one went for a silk floral top that conjured up traditional embroidery patterns and topped it off with red lipstick. It also doesn’t hurt if your fringe bag is YSL.
A familiar face in the crowd, Rumi Neely, was one of several chic concert goers to opt for all white. It’s not the most practical shade for a festival, but it’s great if you’re just going to emerge from the VIP area.
I love a bandeau top for a pool party, especially in a town with retro appeal like Palm Springs. A guest mixed hers with flowy tropical print pants at the Pop Sugar party at the Avalon hotel.
Modelpalooza! Devon Windsor, Rachel Hilbert and Anouk van Kleef layered dresses and vests over shorts and bikinis at Coachella day 0ne. Also note the round sunglasses on all three of them. If you buy nothing else this summer, get yourself a pair of these for an instant update.
A cool dress in a sequin star print was just a little bit trippy and a whole lot chic at Coachella 2016 day one. Leather boots are the way to go for tromping across the dusty festival grounds. Also love the daring hair extensions.
Coachella, baby! Martha Graeff wore some great layers on day one of the festival in a 70s-inspired burnt orange that’s very on trend for 2016.
It’s that time of year again: time to bare your legs after a winter spent in hiding. Make the transition easier with mid-calf boots and a great jacket, as Irene Kim did at the Chloe show. We are seeing a lot of varsity and bomber jackets for spring, especially in this military green color. Kim was also ahead of the curve with her ombre hair.
“Black and white is always right,” as my aunt likes to say, and there’s never a better time than when the weather is in flux. Candela Novembre paired a white angora sweater with a black pencil skirt and gorgeous heels at the Max Mara show.
