Another visually arresting color combo, this time on Caroline Daur in Off White at Paris fashion week. This look is also a great example of how to wear boots with a skirt or dress.
Another great look that also works for the office. Christine Centenera wore a blazer over a knit skirt and top to the Loewe show. It isn’t all business though: click through to see a sexy detail in the back of the jacket. (more…)
Yoyo Cao arrived at the Loewe show in a cadet cap and Prince of Wales plaid pants suit. Surprisingly popular among fashion week guests, pant suits have shed their dowdy image and now feature updated, flattering cuts and colors that would work both in and out of the office.
New blogger Samantha Angelo of The Eye Travels turned heads this fashion week season with her statuesque beauty and flair for mixing different pieces. Outside the Chloe show in Paris, she belted a long Dries Van Noten coat, part trench and part duster, over an Acne dress with a pointed collar and Mary Jane-style Charlotte Olympia shoes. The military subtext to the outfit may especially work for another reason: she actually served in the Marines as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Band! Certainly a multi-talented player on the fashion scene.
Rachel Wang looked polished but summery in a lightweight plaid dress with big gold earrings at the Stella McCartney resort show in New York.
It may still be too cold for shorts, but you can always change the story by shifting to spring colors, like this caramel and navy outfit on Margaret Zhang at Chloe. A silk scarf tied at the neck is not just a classic look but an instant spring 2015 update.
Really liking the look of this caramel-colored suede for spring 2015. Apparently everyone agrees with me, because suede pieces similar to this Chloe shorts and jacket combo on Chiara Ferragni are selling out everywhere.
Photographer and blogger Candice Lake wore a pretty combination of a long suede coat and long white tulle ruffled skirt with boots at the Moncler Gamme Rouge show in Paris. No matter how edgy and dark fashion (and fashion photography) can get – romance is not dead!
One of the people we will miss seeing in the off season: Giovanna Battaglia, always a sunny presence on the fashion scene! She wore some great brocade boots and a cute hat to the Miu Miu show in Paris. Also on our radar: brown, traditionally a fall color, has been appropriated by the fashion set for spring. Perhaps it’s part of that ’70s vibe going on right now.
It’s been great to see Miroslava Duma back on the scene at Paris Fashion Week. At the Stella McCartney show yesterday, she wore a mix of shades of brown, patchwork coat and turtleneck sweater and carried a brown suede Hermes bag.
Loved this cool tapestry coat, wide legged white trousers, and black and white oxfords on Refinery 29 cofounder Christene Barberich at the DKNY show.
Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What arrived at the Rebecca Minkoff show in New York in a fur-trimmed caramel colored sweater.
A cool and unusual look on Ada Kokosar on a hot and steamy day: brown silk fringe blouse and a baby blue pleated skirt. The pop on blue on the bag brings it all together.
Here’s something to get you in the mood for spring: Ada Kokosar in great combination of brown and robin’s egg blue outside the Giorgio Armani show in Milan.
