Black Hat and Fur Fringe Scarf, Outside Dries Van Noten

Fringe provided the dramatic accent for many of the guests at Paris fashion week, like this woman at the Dries Van Noten show, who accessorized a pink top with a fur fringe scarf and black hat.

Red Valentino Skirt, Outside the Dior Show

Red Valentino Skirt, Outside the Dior Show

The long-skirts-for-evening trend shows no sign of stopping, with many guests at the Dior show in Paris mixing long ballroom-style skirts with more casual black tops and sweaters. This antique-inspired Red Valentino skirt in a floral tapestry print looks great with modern silver stilettos and a green fur wrap.

Viviana Volpicella at Valentino

Another example of the full skirts à la Dior that are in fashion now. When splashed with a big print, they’re like a pretty canvas, as on Viviana Volpicella at the Valentino show. Like how she has paired it with a simple navy blue sweater and button-down shirt to keep it grounded.

Caroline Issa at Jil Sander

What’s big for fall 2013? Skirts! There’s no reason not to get into this trend now, especially as fun print skirts like this Emilia Wickstead skirt on Caroline Issa debut for spring. The camel coat is Schumacher.

Ulyana Sergeenko at Dior

Ulyana Sergeenko swept into the Dior show in a dramatic tiered and tasseled wool skirt and an oversized hat. Her personal style strikes me as very 21st-century Anna Karenina - elegant and aristocratic.

Street Chic: All White Maternity Look

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.

Anthropologie Crop Top and Maxi Skirt, Bonnaroo

Here’s another cute crop top look from this weekend’s Bonnaroo. Coordinated tops and skirts are this summer’s sundress, in which all-over prints get updated with cut out panels and midriff-baring separates.

Three Girls in Maxi Skirts, Bonnaroo

The place to be last weekend was Manchester, Tennessee, where the 2012 Bonnaroo festival took over 700 acres of farmland for six stages, dozens of vendors, and approximately 80,000 music fans. Because most people camped out instead of staying in hotels, Bonnaroo bore more resemblance to Woodstock than Lollapalooza, and fashion followed suit. These three girls wore maxi skirts, bikinis, headbands and crocheted tops that wouldn’t have been out of place in the ’60s. But they have one accessory that’s very trendy right now – the hula hoop. Girls are hooping their way through set after set of music, some with LED-lit hula hoops after dark.

White Maxi Skirt, Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

I liked the bohemian look of this flared white cotton maxi skirt with a slim black tank top at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. She’s paired it with red ballet flats and a headband made of faux cherries. I’ve been seeing several whimsical headbands like this around lately. They’re often made by the wearer.

Tomato Red Maxi Skirt, Parsons MFA

A brightly colored, sheer maxi skirt like this one from Topshop goes easily from daytime to an after-work party. Anna, a guest at the Parsons First Eighteen exhibit, paired it with simple black and white on top, but the suede platform sandals add another pop of color.

Kate King at Alberta Ferretti

Model Kate King wore a sheer pale pink skirt exiting the Alberta Ferretti show. Love the color and the vintage-y style.

Caroline Issa at Viktor & Rolf

Caroline Issa of Tank Magazine wore a number of great outfits over Paris fashion week, but this one from the Viktor & Rolf show has to be my favorite. I love the elaborate embroidery on this black dress, very 1940s, like the vintage needlepoint bag Ulyana Sergeenko carried earlier in the week. (You can find lots of them on eBay if you’re in the market.)
