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.
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.
Spring is the time to experiment with different textures and colors now that we can finally shed some layers. Model Irina Liss exited the Margiela show in a black and white leather jacket with sheen. A long skinny silk scarf is the perfect spring accessory.
It’s rainy it’s snowing it’s sunny – what to wear? Take a cue from Miroslava Duma, who paired cropped jeans with a white coat and black beret for a great transitional look at the Schiaparelli couture show.
Stripes, solids, and a pop of print and color that acts like a colorful throw pillow – the kind of mix that an interior designer might put together, or in this case, design and lifestyle blogger Athena Calderone of Eye Swoon.
One of my Parisian favorites, Caroline de Maigret, at the Haider Ackermann show in a black and white coat by the designer.
One of the best looks Kristina Bazan has worn all season: this slit skirt and top by Mugler. Sexy and chic.
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.
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing: Sofie Valkiers in a swingy white dress at Atelier Versace FW2015.
Another good idea for a simple but polished fashion week “uniform” when it’s 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius) in New York: a lightweight white cotton dress with black boots.
An elegant long white silk skirt dialed down somewhat by a quilted cropped top in T-shirt form.
Erica Pelosini stood out from the crowd in a Balmain skirt and black crop top at the Atelier Versace show in Paris.
A pretty look in a black and white romper on model Anastasia Chekry, still in hair and makeup from the Ulyana Sergeenko couture runway.
I really like how Olivia Palermo styled this outfit, because when one is pulling a pair of (kind of loud) wide-legged black and white striped trousers out of one’s closet, one doesn’t necessarily think, now where is my equally attention-grabbing black and white striped shirt to go with? Yet somehow the whole thing comes together quite elegantly.
