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.

White Dress and Black Boots, Outside Creatures of the Wind SS201

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.

Olivia Palermo at Giambattista Valli Couture FW2015

Olivia Palermo at Giambattista Valli Couture FW2015

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.

Maryna Kovaltchuk at Dior Couture FW2015

Maryna Kovaltchuk at Dior Couture FW2015

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in New York air conditioning. The solution: silk! A long silk dress like this one by Leonard Paris on Maryna Kovaltchuk moves beautifully from hot city streets to cold air conditioned spaces, keeping the wearer comfortable all the while.

Vanessa Moody at Christian Dior Couture FW2015

If you ever need inspiration to wear short shorts, just hang around a bunch of models in the summer – though of course, not all of us have legs like theirs. Vanessa Moody wore white denim shorts with a black top after the Dior show on a hot day in Paris.

Leila Yavari at Kenzo FW2015

More black and white, this time on Stylebop’s Leila Yavari. This cut of this leather skirt is perfect for 2015 – slim but not quite a pencil cut, with an athletic-style gathered waist.
