French model Caroline de Maigret paused for a minute outside the Rodarte show in front of some “love” graffiti. Not an accident, because we photographers love her! She was one of several show goers during fashion week to wear spring-y jeans in white or pale washed colors. Anything to usher in the warmer weather.
Loved this hilarious vintage Hooters sweatshirt and faux fur coat on Hanne Gaby Odiele, a top model with an irreverent sense of humor. As usual she delivers the message with a wink and a nod.
Model Katlin Aas has a cool, laid back style that’s casual but never haphazard. In Milan she conquered the cold with lots of layers under a leather jacket, an oversize scarf and beanie hat. Also like how she has styled the lace-up boots with wool socks for an outdoorsy look (also practical in the snow).
A cool parka goes a long way in winter. This one outside the Etro show in Milan was printed with fox tails – still glamorous but friendlier than the real thing. Boyfriend jeans and heels add to the mix.
This is the kind of high-low mix that stylists and editors love: a très chic (and expensive) Valentino coat and Chanel matriochka bag worn with a down-to-earth pair of ripped boyfriend jeans. Even if you can’t throw on your best Valentino and Chanel, you can take a cue from this girl: this fall’s shredded boyfriend jeans are best worn cuffed with heels, especially if you’re petite.
This was one of my favorite shirt-around-the-waist outfits spotted this past fashion week, on a super cute Joan Smalls after the Alexander Wang show. I think her patchwork plaid shirt is by Equipment.
Such a cool hi-lo mix on fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell: a black polka dot tulle skirt worn over cropped jeans with an emerald green silk top.
Loved this look on Brazil’s Helena Bordon at yesterday’s Issey Miyake show. Mixing ripped jeans and a quirky athletic-inspired tee with a floral trench and heels is daring, but it all comes together beautifully. She said that the jeans got so ripped that she had to safety pin them, but guess what? Ripped, safety-pinned jeans are definitely in fashion.
Another twist on the colorblocked dress, this time in various shades of blue denim, cotton and velvet on a model off duty after the Armani Privé show.
More Throwback Thursdays: Sometimes I look back at old photos and realize I didn’t know what I had, like this photo of Karlie Kloss from Valentine’s Day in 2011. It was before she hit megastardom as a model, and though the bag is Dior, I love how she’s just in regular jeans and scuffed up boots.
Surprisingly chic right now: all denim from head to toe. At the Theyskens’ Theory show in New York, Susie Lau of Style Bubble mixed different shades of blue denim, all from ASOS, and finished the look with Prada shoes.
Photographer (and ex-model – can you tell?!) Candice Lake sported this great 3.1 Phillip Lim I [Heart] Nueva York tee to the Donna Karan show at NY Fashion Week. It’s especially cute paired with printed jeans and a red hat. The fur coat is Hockley London.
Some fashion people play fast and loose with the term “vintage.” It doesn’t refer to a bag from two seasons ago, but rather the treasures you can find when hunting through racks and racks of old stuff, as at Antique Boutique on Broadway in the ’80s and ’90s, when vintage had its heyday. Model Ruby Aldridge continues the tradition with the vintage stuff she wears all the time, like these cool jeans and Western boots. The resulting look is truly original. Close-up of those boots, after the jump.
