Anytime I see Marc Jacobs’ black and white stripes in all the spring magazines, I can’t help but think of this look on Taylor Tomasi Hill last February. Influencer!
Here’s something to get you in the mood for spring: Ada Kokosar in great combination of brown and robin’s egg blue outside the Giorgio Armani show in Milan.
Don’t let the winter doldrums get you down: cold weather can also provide an excuse for a major fashion statement, as with this hooded fur jacket with leather sleeves on a guest at Carolina Herrera’s show. The bag is Hermès.
Nina Garcia mastered the warm but sexy look on a very cold day at the Victoria Beckham show, where she sported an all-black outfit of skater skirt, tights and stiletto boots, belted sweater, plus a warm shearling jacket.
One way to ward off the blues on a really cold day: a colorful fur coat, as seen on Anya Ziourova outside the Derek Lam show.
When dressing for NY Fashion Week, it’s important for us street style photographers to remember that we must spend a lot of time outside, not just dashing from the warmth of a chauffeured car to a fashion show. Therefore I am much more likely to take cues from stylish photogs like Garance Doré, who always mixes high fashion with a good dose of practicality, as with this fur-lined military parka. The pink lipstick is a nice girly touch.
Back into the cold: a belted plaid coat and oversize scarf are a stylish way to battle the elements.
One from the archives: Taylor Tomasi Hill dared to bare her ankles last February at the Theyskens’ Theory show. That’s what warm winter days are for!
Photographer Candice Lake lightened up a winter look with a shearling coat in pale green and cream. The bright floppy hat is the perfect topper.
I’ve been seeing a lot of cute beanie pom pom hats on the street whenever the temperature drops below zero. They’re particularly cute with a varsity jacket.
Nothing brightens up a sea of blah black coats in January like a pop of neon color. This guest at the Victoria Beckham show accented her thick black coat with a sunny yellow hoodie and mirrored sunglasses, bringing a little Cali surf style to bear on a NY winter day.
One thing I have personally been obsessed with this past fall is sheer black stockings. Formerly relegated to the back of the drawer in favor of opaque tights, they’ve made a huge comeback. Always ahead of the curve, Caroline Seiber paired a gorgeous gray dress (gray – also very au courant) with sexy sheer black stockings at last February’s Theyskens’ Theory show.
When the thermometer drops down to the low 20s in New York, my mind goes back to the bitterly cold days outside St. John’s Center during last winter’s New York Fashion Week. And guess what? The next NY Fashion Week is just five weeks away, so it’s time to start brainstorming about what to wear now.
Model Aymeline Valade bundled up with panache outside the Jason Wu show with a wrap, Alexander Wang bag and warm hat for a look that’s cozy yet chic.
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.
Remember when it was cool enough to wear things like – oh, I don’t know – pants? I am already craving the chill of fall and found inspiration in this look on Hanneli Mustaparta. The cute striped peplum jacket is Tibi, the shoes Tabitha Simmons, and the bag Acne. Close ups of her accessories after the jump. (more…)
