The welcome trend of wide-legged pants, which are so cool and breezy on hot summer days, does not seem to be going anywhere soon. A white silk jumpsuit with black accessories looks chic for the last days of summer.
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.
Spotted outside the Marchesa bridal show: model Amanda Wellsh in black leather pants. It’s not time to put these away quite yet: they work well on a cool or rainy spring day, especially when you show a little ankle.
The humble baseball cap is becoming something of a high-fashion item. We spotted Miroslava Duma wearing one several times during Paris couture week, and then a Balenciaga cap appeared at New York fashion week. The caps in question are usually new and close-fitting for a polished look.
Who knew that hoodies would have such a practical use during this past Fashion Month? They were spotted everywhere on the fashion crowd whenever the weather took a turn for the worse. For model Kristy K, a hoodie was more durable than an umbrella in the wind and snow.
Paris Warren handled the snow last week with a fur coat thrown over a white shirt with tassels, still stylish despite the weather.
Tina Leung wore a great combination of a Raf Simons puffer over a Courreges black and white jacket to Paris couture week. Her hair and makeup are Dior.
A dramatic and monochromatic look with an ombre coat, seen outside the J. Crew presentation last winter.
Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges exited the Armani Privé show in Paris in subtle but colorful runway makeup, shell choker, and the natural hairstyle that has become her trademark. Not only a strong beauty statement, but perfect for summer.
Polka dots are the quintessential summer print, and they’re especially pretty in a long silk dress, as seen on Candela at the Schiaparelli show in Paris.
Graphic punch: Instagram’s Eva Chen wore graphic print in black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
Mia Moretti has a real gift for making everything retro new again. Here in a collared black, red and white look at Emporio Armani in Milan.
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.
