May and June are a great time to have fun with party dresses in colorful prints, like this cheetah print dress seen at the Dior Resort show in Brooklyn.
I have been struggling with what to do about crop tops. Memories of Jennifer Aniston in red carpet appearances past have clouded my judgment somewhat, because this generation of crop tops is not the navel gazing version that plagued us in the early 2000s. Instead the new crop tops are often paired with high waisted pants and skirts, revealing just the tiniest bit of sexy skin, as Lucky editor Eva Chen did so effortlessly at the Dior Cruise show. I also love her work clutch, the sort of bag you see so often on fashion editors now.
Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea wore a cool colorblock dress to the Dior Cruise 2015 show with a diagonal line of buttons that felt appropriately nautical for the occasion.
Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.
The fashion world turned out for the Dior Cruise show yesterday in Brooklyn. Nina Garcia, fashion-forward as always, sported one of my favorite trends for 2014: cropped, wide legged pants. They looked great in floral quilting with heels and a black top.
A cool trench is a great way to brighten up a rainy day. Stylist Tina Leung of Tina Loves wore a colorful burgundy and blue wave print trench to the Balmain show in Paris.
More miniskirts: Candela Novembre paired hers with a chunky orange sweater and black and white heels at the Giorgio Armani show in Milan. The outfit is all Zara except for the bag, which is by Sara Battaglia.
Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad wore a look straight off the Burberry runway to the Emporio Armani show in Milan: a pink lace Burberry skirt and clear plastic jacket, both embellished with jewels. Such a pretty and feminine look for spring.
Just a few hours before this year’s Met Ball, our thoughts go out to the men who’ll be attending. Much has been written already about the strict dress code of white tie and tails for the men. Spending thousands of dollars on an outfit you may only wear once – we women wonder what that must be like?!? C’mon guys, you can do it. Let these stylish guys outside the Roberto Cavalli show be an inspiration to us all.
Dressy sweatpants – in leather or otherwise – are really taking off among the fashion folk. Model Anna Ewers wore a pair in black silk after the Valentino show in Paris. Pair them with sneakers as she does here for a look that’s more street, or wear them with heels for evening.
