One notable trend to emerge last winter and this one is exposed ankles, no matter what the temperature. This photo was taken when the polar vortex bore down on New York fashion week last winter. Part of it is due to the conundrum of what to wear with cropped, wide cut jeans and pants, the new silhouette that is edging out skinny jeans. And part of it may just be plain old fashion masochism.
Winner for coolest outfit of the day on Saturday: Sarah Rutson riffing on the pajama-dressing trend by wearing actual silk pajamas to the Bottega Veneta show. The velvet platform heels and necklaces dress it up.
Love this sporty but urban look on model Elisabeth Erm after the Rochas show last winter. Again you can see when the mercury really drops, the fashion set layers a leather jacket underneath a winter coat.
Loved this sculptural Delpozo dress on Leaf Greener at the Ulyana Sergeenko couture show in Paris. Look for more architectural fashion that really makes a statement this fall. Detail shot of her lips earrings, after the jump. Her tiny bag is actually just an iPhone cover with a chain handle. (more…)
Blogger Alissa Wilson of Stylish Curves wore some pretty floral print pants and a hot pink top to the Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant show last night. Adding florals under a black overcoat is a great way to warm up to spring.
Anna Wintour has been a big presence on the Paris fashion week scene, going to show after show. Here she is at the Rochas show in a beautiful graphic print coat in black, white, bronze and silver plus her trademark necklaces.
Susie Bubble wore not one but two very enviable Chanel accessories to the Rochas show in Paris: the new Chanel backpack and Chanel headphones. Yes, that necklace is actually a set of faux pearl headphones. Detail shot, after the jump. (more…)
This was one of my favorite “food and fashion” moments of the last women’s RTW season – the ever-glamorous Shala Monroque of Garage Magazine eating a beignet in front of the Eiffel Tower. She had arrived early for one of the shows and was just taking in the view. The vintage rabbit bag is a nod to her blog, Shala’s Rabbit Hole.
Cosmopolitan’s fashion market editor and native Bermudian Shiona Turini is perhaps the most fashionable woman to emerge from Bermuda, well, ever. If you have ever whiled away a rainy summer afternoon rummaging through shops on Front Street in search of something that is not pink and green or patterned like your grandma’s tea cozy, you have felt my pain. And yet, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Shiona turns up at fashion weeks around the world fabulously attired. She was already sporting the trendy Fendi keychain in September, clipped to a fabulous Louis Vuitton clutch.
I’m always thinking of Linda Fargo at this time of year because of the fabulous Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows. Here she is looking great outside the Carven show in Paris. She told me the lips necklace is just a novelty item she picked up somewhere – it adds a little fun to an elegant black and white look.
Men’s accessories are a huge growth area in retail right now, and no wonder when men like La Repubblica‘s Simone Marchetti wear them so well. The pink polka dot scarf is Valentino.
The lowly sweatshirt is getting embellished with jewels this fall. In this particularly pretty version, it’s a sweatshirt dress dripping with delicate crystals in faux-diamand and topaz form. Also note how she has smartly styled it with a crisp white button down underneath.
This is the kind of high-low mix that stylists and editors love: a très chic (and expensive) Valentino coat and Chanel matriochka bag worn with a down-to-earth pair of ripped boyfriend jeans. Even if you can’t throw on your best Valentino and Chanel, you can take a cue from this girl: this fall’s shredded boyfriend jeans are best worn cuffed with heels, especially if you’re petite.
