We’re really seeing a lot of volume in the clothes outside the shows, especially the pants. It’s a complete 180 from the skinny rocker chick jeans that used to be a fashion staple at Paris fashion weeks. Nasiba Adilova wore a billowing gray silk overcoat and gray wide-legged trousers to the Elie Saab couture show.
This beautiful dove gray is a favorite color of mine, and it looks especially good done from head to (almost) toe in Dior. Christina Pitanguy created a nice bit of contrast by finishing off the gray midi skirt with forest green boots.
A cute look spotted yesterday on Madison Avenue and a great example of how to wear sunglasses with a winter hat. Another thing to note: fashion people are not letting go of cropped pants and bare ankles, no matter how cold it gets!
A belted coat is an elegant way to fend off the cold. Model Auguste Abeliunaite paired a gray tie-waist coat with black leather pants, boots and a big Prada bag after the Prabal Gurung show in New York.
Leave it to Rumi Neely to look sexy even in the dead of winter. Outside the Prabal Gurung show, she cut a stylish silhouette with a fluffy gray fur coat on top and black leather miniskirt on the bottom.
Years after Alexander Wang brought it to the runway, sporty mesh is still being repurposed as high fashion. The intricate texture really brings out the beautiful lines of this ruffled skirt and crop top on Nausheen Shah at the Elie Saab couture show in Paris.
Italian blogger Gilda Koral Flora of Thank God It’s Friday wore a cool sculptural Rick Owens jacket to the designer’s show in Paris.
The lowly sweatshirt is getting embellished with jewels this fall. In this particularly pretty version, it’s a sweatshirt dress dripping with delicate crystals in faux-diamand and topaz form. Also note how she has smartly styled it with a crisp white button down underneath.
Welcome to Milan fashion week! First show: Gucci. We’ve seen a lot of black and white on the streets this season but not a lot of gray, which may be why this elegant and sporty look in gray and white seemed like such a breath of fresh air. Also note the boots – just above the ankle is the way to go for fall.
Russian Glamour‘s Oksana On wore a striking gray dress to the Roberto Cavalli show in Milan. As in many of the fall/winter 2013 shows, the clothes on the street have been getting more muted, save for the occasional fashion week peacock or two, with the focus shifting away from bright colors and returning to sharp tailoring.
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.
