A pretty look in red and white on Tina Leung – and a good lesson in layering spring dresses when the weather isn’t cooperating!
A look in green silk with florals at the Gucci show – beautifully put together, especially the scarf tied at the wrist.
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.
Aimee Song wore the color combo of red and blue to the Chanel show in Paris. The chambray jacket and skirt are a great way to welcome the warmer weather – and these Chanel mules are particularly popular with the fashion crowd.
Farewell, coats: One of my favorite coats of Fashion Month, an embroidered one by Etro, on Nausheen Shah at the Carolina Herrera show.
Pam Allier doubled down on bright colors, including cherry red pants, on a springlike day at the Gucci show.
Hey New Yorkers, don’t get too used to this nice weather, because tomorrow, well you know – with Shiona Turini in a hoodie in the rain outside the Public School show.
A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
At the Sies Marjan show in NYC, Aimee Song wore a dress in crushed velvet with white boots and fishnet stockings, several trends we would see throughout fashion month. For fishnets, the larger the knit, the better.
Sometimes the simplest look is the chicest. Model Maggie Laine mixed a (vintage?) fur with faded black jeans after the Tibi show in NYC.
A shiny leather coat on Vanessa Hong added some rainy day chic to the Paris shows. Leather coats like this one by Ellery were a popular and practical choice on fashion week guests.
These clashing colors on Camille Charrière early in NY fashion week turned out to be a good indicator of trends we would see throughout the month, when guests at the shows mixed clashing pink and red or orange and red for visual impact. The Celine crossbody bag is also a favorite with the fashion crowd.
The humble baseball cap is becoming something of a high-fashion item. We spotted Miroslava Duma wearing one several times during Paris couture week, and then a Balenciaga cap appeared at New York fashion week. The caps in question are usually new and close-fitting for a polished look.
Caroline Daur mixed a white jumpsuit with an unstructured trench by Rochas for a look that transitioned from winter to spring.
