The humble sweatshirt has made a comeback recently thanks to Parisian label Vetements. Outside the Dries van Noten show, it gets layered under a sculpted, tailored jacket to make the whole look less casual.
Clothes that work for the office don’t have to be dowdy. At the Cedric Charlier show in Paris, Darja Barannik combined a midi skirt and jacket with heels and a crossbody chain bag for a look that’s both professional and fashionable – in Gucci green and red colors.
One upshot of the wane of skinny jeans: denim has become a lot less conformist. Outside the Max Mara show, a guest wore an oversized denim jacket and pants with contrasting cuffs for a cool spin on this workday staple.
A good example of how an all-white outfit can look badass, as seen on Gilda Ambrosio at the Iceberg show in Milan. The masculine cut of the jacket and pants give it an edge.
It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.
This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!
Coachella, baby! Martha Graeff wore some great layers on day one of the festival in a 70s-inspired burnt orange that’s very on trend for 2016.
It’s that time of year again: time to bare your legs after a winter spent in hiding. Make the transition easier with mid-calf boots and a great jacket, as Irene Kim did at the Chloe show. We are seeing a lot of varsity and bomber jackets for spring, especially in this military green color. Kim was also ahead of the curve with her ombre hair.
When it’s spring but it’s freezing: this is actually quite a familiar scenario, because this was the weather throughout this past fashion month. Soften the blow by bundling up with bright colors and graphic prints, like this guest with a striped jacket at the Blugirl show in Milan.
Spring is the time to experiment with different textures and colors now that we can finally shed some layers. Model Irina Liss exited the Margiela show in a black and white leather jacket with sheen. A long skinny silk scarf is the perfect spring accessory.
The floral appliqued Gucci spring collection is already getting a lot of play on the streets, as are pleated skirts, back in a big way. Margaret Zhang mixed a pleated skirt with a silk bomber jacket outside the Gucci show.
In with a bang: James Goldstein entered the Blugirl show in a sequined leather jacket and his signature snakeskin cowboy hat.
Sharp dresser: crisp angles and textures in a blue skirt and jacket on Leigh Lezark at the Hood by Air show in New York.
A flash of red at the Tommy Hilfiger show provides a graphic punch on the streets as winter winds down.
Warmer weather means it’s time to experiment with varying sleeve lengths and layers. Denni Elias played up an embroidered floral print top with the shorter jacket arms of a military coat at the Jason Wu show.
