I guess it’s the prep in me, but I’m always a sucker for bright colored pants in the summer, like these bright pink ones seen on Lorena Vergani at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris.
Sometimes a snazzy shirt is all you need. This guy is one of many to mix daywear with neon bright sneakers – a high-low combination that works especially well if you add luxe accessories like a leather zip bag.
This is how to wear brights right now: by pairing them with neutrals, as J.J. Martin did at the Balmain show in Paris. Martin has really mastered the ladylike look, bringing adult polish to trends and making them her own. To wit: the discreet black shoes and bag that finish off the outfit, after the jump. (more…)
Style Bubble’s Susie Lau wore her trademark cheerful bright colors to the Ann Demeulemeester show. Her outfits were a breath of fresh air during the gloomy, overcast days of Paris fashion week.
Spring: you can will it to be here with your clothing! I think it’s one’s civic duty to dress colorfully in urban areas during this time of year, since we don’t have as many flowers. People have to be the flowers.
Michelle Elie of Garage Magazine was a bright pop of orange and red color on a gloomy day outside the Roberto Cavalli show. Close-up of her Miu Miu platforms, after the jump.
Nothing brightens up a sea of blah black coats in January like a pop of neon color. This guest at the Victoria Beckham show accented her thick black coat with a sunny yellow hoodie and mirrored sunglasses, bringing a little Cali surf style to bear on a NY winter day.
Before you wrap yourself up in a big black coat from now until March, consider the alternatives. Loved the bright colors on this guest at the Rochas show: aquamarine (faux?) fur vest set off by pops of magenta in her shoes, clutch and lipstick.
We photographers have a certain obsession with Wonderland editor Julia Sarr-Jamois’ style, and it’s gotten even keener since the last Fashion Month. She is now a cover girl for J.Crew and in print ads all over the U.S. Obviously we aren’t alone in admiring her cool, individualistic style! At the Emporio Armani show she wore an abstract houndstooth print skirt paired with a gray sweatshirt and purple leopard print clutch. The bright red sunglasses that match the skirt are the crowning touch.
A brightly colored, sheer maxi skirt like this one from Topshop goes easily from daytime to an after-work party. Anna, a guest at the Parsons First Eighteen exhibit, paired it with simple black and white on top, but the suede platform sandals add another pop of color.
Marie Claire editor Zanna Roberts Rassi arrived at Monday’s Parsons MFA exhibit looking just as chic as she does during fashion week. We’ve been seeing bright pants on a lot of trendsetters now, but what makes her look particularly cool is how she pairs these Christopher Kane for J Brand neon-bright yellow jeans with a classic military drab jacket. She’s customized the jeans by tucking the flared leg into her lace-up boots. Love it.
It was so terrible to learn yesterday that iconic designer Sonia Rykiel has been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for the past 15 years (story in WWD). She has continued on very bravely with her work, drawing quite a stylish crowd to her most recent show in the Tuileries. Here, model Jacquelyn Jablonski exits the show at dusk in a camel coat, white blouse, scarf draped just so, and leather leggings. The acid-green bag with her initials on the tag is the crowning touch.
This warm weather has me craving color. Here’s one way to wear it that’s both fun and polished: a fuchsia trenchcoat layered over a royal blue dress with a matching hat. Her lipstick also matches the trench exactly, but the shoes are a neutral nude to keep the whole look from going over the top.
This is a great early-spring outfit that incorporates a pop of bright orange in an otherwise warm and tweedy look.
Here are some more bright pants for you, on Linda Fargo at Etro, mixed with a colorful fur scarf. They look so great in the spring light, especially now that the weather’s warming up in Milan. Though there are some skinny jeans in bright colors for spring, flared, tailored trousers in bright colors are particularly chic. The bag is Valentino.
