New York Fashion Week
Model Teddy Quinlivan vamped it up after the Jason Wu show in a vintage-inspired look that included a pencil skirt and custom Peels uniform shirt for “Theodora.” Love it.
You can always tell when models appreciate the runway makeup because, like Mali Koopman after the Jason Wu show, they leave it on when leaving the show instead of taking it off for the next one. A nude face and red lip are a good bet for summer beauty: simple but sophisticated.
Streetwear is making major inroads into high fashion – but within this development lies a major possibility for error. Unless you’re still actually in gym class, you probably don’t want to go for a head-to-toe streetwear look. Here is one way to wear the chunky, oversize sweatshirts that are already appearing in stores for fall. A guest at NY Fashion Week mixed hers with a long tiered skirt, heels, patent leather bag and a headscarf for a perfectly polished outfit that was also on trend.

A flowy floral kimono is the perfect topper on cool late summer days, as seen on photographer and blogger Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds at the Altuzarra show in NYC.
Here’s one color trend we’re still seeing a lot of: bright yellow, as spotted on Elina Halimi at the Alberta Ferretti show. This perennially happy color is a nice way to welcome the summer.

A pretty look in red and white on Tina Leung – and a good lesson in layering spring dresses when the weather isn’t cooperating!
You may be wondering right about now when it will be time to break out the white jeans. The answer is: it’s never too early to wear white jeans, as seen on Eglantina Zingg of Project Runway Latin America – in February! This is one wardrobe item that needs a refresher every year or so. A cropped pair with raw cuffs is an updated spin on a classic.
