New York Street Chic
Tropical prints are making a splash this summer, as seen on DJ Christine Renee at the Brooklyn Sunset Bash at 110 Kent last week. The Bakelite bracelet and colorful earrings are great finishing touches.
More summer parties coming your way? A backless Halston dress in bright red really makes a statement, as seen on Kelly Anna Polk at the Met Museum.
Loved this striped jumpsuit on Asia Burris of Saint Heron at the Met Museum Young Members party. With its bunting-like pleats and folds, it would be great for a 4th of July party too.
A good example of how sportswear is infiltrating businesswear on Alex Badia, who mixed a bomber jacket with tailored trousers. White sneakers have also been spotted on men in suits this summer.
Pantsuits and jumpers have been a popular sartorial choice for women during the spring benefit season this year. Artist Olympia Scarry wore a military-inspired set with a flash of pink.
Nothing says “summer” like pink accessories – as seen at the Met Museum Young Members night in June.
Seen on the streets, a combination of vintage and new items that adds up to timeless chic.
Alek Wek wore a crisp suit in all white by Michael Kors to the Whitney Museum Gala – a look that could also go from day to night.
The double-breasted jacket, particularly in cotton poplin, is a must-have in menswear this summer. Above, Johannes Huebl in a double-breasted jacket at Valentino, and below, a New Yorker on his way to work in a similar style. (more…)
The midi skirt paired with a button-down shirt is shaping up to be a key daytime look for spring/summer 2017. This polished but pretty Valentino skirt was spotted on a couple of guests at the resort show in NYC.
Top model Helena Christensen wore a Valentino frock in layered white tulle to the resort show this week.
The stars align at this time of year, when glittery spring benefit parties intersect with longer daylight hours, allowing us to see some eveningwear trends on the street. At the Whitney Gala and Studio party last night, which raised $5.1M for the museum, artist Cleo Wade wore a long slouchy, long sleeved dress with chunky white heels. The covered-up trend continues, even in eveningwear.
The always-on-trend Olivia Palermo wore a satin bomber jacket with tropical prints and a pop of yellow to the Valentino resort show yesterday in New York. She mixed it with a striped top in a clever styling twist.
Valentino came to town this week to put on a resort show in downtown NYC. The fashion crowd came out in force for designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, who hasn’t missed a beat since taking full helm of the label last year. Harley Viera Newton was one of several starlets in attendance and arrived in a pink striped Valentino dress embroidered with hearts.
