This sporty outfit seen may look vintage, but it’s actually a mix of modern day Thom Browne, Ralph Lauren and J. Crew – and testament to how much the 1920s are currently influencing men’s fashion.
It’s August, and you know what that means in the fashion world: time to start thinking about what you’ll wear next spring. RICA Swimwear designer Ava Sanjurjo got plenty of practice thinking ahead in her previous job as a trend scout, and the suits she showed at last night’s spring preview reflected several key directions in fashion.

Last night’s RICA Swimwear spring preview took place at the rooftop bar of the Mondrian Soho, Soaked. It was the perfect setting for a flirty, chic dress from Dolce & Gabbana that combined leopard and scarf prints. (more…)
Pale suits were all the rage on men at this weekend’s Jazz Age Lawn Party. Crooner Gregory Moore, who would later perform with a troupe of Dreamland follies, even wore a white cape for the occasion. And of course, there’s one accessory you can’t do without at this garden party: a picnic basket.
At this weekend’s Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, there was a surprising crossover between 1920s looks and goth in several of the guests. Both aesthetics are related to Steampunk and involve a lot of attention to detail, vintage, and a love of costuming. The mashup was pretty brilliant on this young woman, who wore a black vintage jacket with her black sequin shorts and black hat, nicely contrasting with cherry-red lipstick. Very cool personal style.
There’s no need to wait until fall to start wearing lace. It’s particularly showing up in shorts, either as an all-over layer or as lace trim. This woman on Madison Avenue – a model off duty? – paired hers with a simple gray tank, Ray Bans, gladiators and a Louis Vuitton bag. Detail shot of her pretty updo and bag, after the jump.
Mixing a Chanel-esque black and white striped jacket with black leather shorts creates a great hi-lo effect for summer weekdays. The YSL tote was a New York Fashion Week giveaway. I also became obsessed with her sunglasses and hunted them down online. Looks like they are Super Sunglasses in “Lucia,” available here.
As you may have read in this article, some Chinese women are going to extremes this summer to avoid the sun, even wearing ski masks to the beach! There’s no need to go overboard, though. Chinese actress Fan Bingbing looked dazzling in all white – right down to a white Louis Vuitton umbrella to guard against the sun’s rays – outside the Louis Vuitton show this spring.
I’ve seen a lot of fashion shows in my time, but not until this weekend did I ever get to be in one. As part of the Blogher 2012 conference, more than a dozen bloggers walked in a show outfitted by online retailer 6pm. I was somewhat terrified of having a Carrie moment on the runway and have a newfound appreciation for professional models. Fortunately I made it through without falling, even on 6-inch Jessica Simpson platform stilettos. (They’re surprisingly comfortable, BTW.) Here are a few Instagram shots from backstage.

I have been wearing and seeing a lot of blue this summer – maybe it’s some sort of psychological antidote to the heat. Blue and white polka dots in particular were on a few guests at the Mister Sunday party, including model off duty Trilby, seen here in a cute Madewell dress.
At the Mister Sunday party, this guest from College Fashionista was one of several to wear a cute and colorful dress found at a thrift store. Blame the economy, but it seems we’ve come full circle back to New York’s vintage shopping height of the mid-’90s, when Broadway thrift store Antique Boutique was cooler than any Madison Avenue flagship. If you’re craving new summer fashion but your clothing budget is already maxed out, remember: there’s always Beacon’s Closet for cheap chic.
Stefany Mohebban of the style blog Pretty in Thrift wore this cool vintage floral dress to this weekend’s Mister Sunday party in Brooklyn. The necklace is vintage too. I’ve also been noticing bright fuchsia lipstick on a lot of trendsetters.
At yesterday’s Mister Sunday party in Gowanus, beauty ad executive Andrea took a break from DJ Justin Carter’s set to pose in this amazing outfit of vintage white Gap overalls layered over a gray tank top. Her elaborately braided hair and the vintage glasses make the look super individualistic.
Not surprisingly, all white outfits have been a popular choice during the blisteringly hot summer of 2012. But I especially like how this woman on Madison Avenue interpreted all white for maternity with a long white cotton skirt and crochet tank top. The black and white Chanel bag is the icing on the cake.
