When it’s spring but it’s freezing: this is actually quite a familiar scenario, because this was the weather throughout this past fashion month. Soften the blow by bundling up with bright colors and graphic prints, like this guest with a striped jacket at the Blugirl show in Milan.
We may not be fully out of the cold weather yet, but you can keep it light and breezy with a long lightweight coat, which are getting more play on the streets than cropped jackets this season. Caroline Issa wore a beautiful lace coat by Sacai over cropped jeans to the Valentino show.
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.
Brighten up a rainy day with graphic prints and bright colors as Polina Askeri did at the Jil Sander show in Milan.
Molto Italiano: a classic menswear look on Fabrizio Oriani of Gentlemen’s Wear Daily outside the Emporio Armani show. And yes, more mustard yellow!
Have you any Grey Poupon? Mustard yellow is shaping up to be a big color right now and for fall 2016. Margaret Zhang exited the Fendi show in an oversize mustard coat and Fendi bag and pants.
It’s good to see some familiar faces back at Milan Fashion Week, including Candela Novembre, who wore a luxe pajama look by Laura Urbinati in marigold yellow to the Blugirl 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.
Warmer weather means it’s time to experiment with varying sleeve lengths and layers. Denni Elias played up an embroidered floral print top with the shorter jacket arms of a military coat at the Jason Wu show.
Braving the elements with a red silk skirt at the Lacoste show in New York.
I always look back to the winter shows in NYC some fashion inspiration at this time of year. Despite the chilly temps, Nausheen Shah looked perfectly turned out at the Creatures of the Wind show in an oversize coat, cowl neck sweater, wide brim hat and cuffed jeans.
Hot or cold? A great transitional look on Kristina Bazan outside the Pucci show.
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.
One of my Parisian favorites, Caroline de Maigret, at the Haider Ackermann show in a black and white coat by the designer.
