Staying chic even in the rain with a fantastically painted leather coat and feather-trimmed jacket at Paris fashion week.
A surprising micro trend that’s emerging right now: white socks, worn even with heels, though they’ve also been spotted with boat shoes or loafers. Irina Lakicevic styled hers to make black shoes look like spats at the Chanel show.
You may be wondering right about now when it will be time to break out the white jeans. The answer is: it’s never too early to wear white jeans, as seen on Eglantina Zingg of Project Runway Latin America – in February! This is one wardrobe item that needs a refresher every year or so. A cropped pair with raw cuffs is an updated spin on a classic.
Ece Sukan brightened up a winter day outside the Calvin Klein show in all white.
If you’re going to have to wear a winter coat well into March, at least make it a big pink one, as Helena Bordon did at Carolina Herrera. This Pepto Bismol pink shade kept popping up on guests at the shows during Fashion Month.
“Dressing down” does not have to mean wearing athleisure gear from head to toe, especially in New York City. This woman in Astor Place looked comfortable but chic in a open bouclé coat over a cool tee, pink knit hat, torn jeans and ankle boots.
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.
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.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Young women who have the abs, like model Alanna Arrington, seen here after walking the Balmain show, are wearing crop tops and bandeau tops well into fall, often under a jacket.
