Layer It On: Helena Bordon at Sacai SS2017

Helena Bordon at Sacai SS2017

Layering is more than a means of keeping warm. At the Sacai show in Paris, Helena Bordon layered a turtleneck under a patent leather bustier for a look that was both chic and cozy. This technique dials down the sexiness of slip dresses and strapless tops to make them work for daytime. It’s also a way of extending your summer wardrobe into the cooler months.

Gilded Edge: Giovanna Battaglia at Valentino SS2017

Giovanna Battaglia at Valentino SS2017

Another nice high-low mix of Prada and street wear, this time on Giovanna Battaglia. At the Valentino show, she topped a denim shirt and Fenty x Puma sneakers with a gold jacquard Prada coat. The flash of ankle keeps the combination of jeans and a long coat chic, not clunky.

Sofie Valkiers at Coachella 2016

Sofie Valkiers at Coachella 2016

It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.

This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!

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.

Nausheen Shah at Creatures of the Wind FW2015

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.
