Cold Shoulder: Carlotta Oddi at Gucci SS2018

We saw so much of this ribbed Calvin Klein sweater with cut-outs at the shoulder during  fashion month. Carlotta Oddi wore hers with a paneled maxi skirt and boots. Cut-outs at the shoulder are still on-trend in knits and silk tops, although with a hard, straight line like a tank top, not the scooped out shoulder that has been done ad infinitum.

Headscarf, Sweatshirt and Long Skirt, NYFW SS2017

Streetwear is making major inroads into high fashion – but within this development lies a major possibility for error. Unless you’re still actually in gym class, you probably don’t want to go for a head-to-toe streetwear look. Here is one way to wear the chunky, oversize sweatshirts that are already appearing in stores for fall. A guest at NY Fashion Week mixed hers with a long tiered skirt, heels, patent leather bag and a headscarf for a perfectly polished outfit that was also on trend.

Luxe Layers: Susie Bubble at Carven SS2017

Susie Bubble at Carven SS2017

One item we spotted several times during fashion month: sheer tulle skirts worn over skirts or jeans. They may not add much in terms of warmth, but they do add some whimsy and glamour to an outfit, as seen on Susie Bubble at the Carven show in Paris.

The zig zag knit, popularized by Missoni, is a classic that never goes out of style. It’s also a cozy way to sweater-dress. Charlotte Groeneveld wore a zig zag knit sweater and dress by Chloe to the shows in Paris.

All About the Mix: Athena Calderone at Giulietta FW2016

Athena Calderone at Giulietta FW2016

Stripes, solids, and a pop of print and color that acts like a colorful throw pillow – the kind of mix that an interior designer might put together, or in this case, design and lifestyle blogger Athena Calderone of Eye Swoon.

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

Street style-wise, this has been the season of Gilda. The Italian fashionista has tapped into the ’70s zeitgeist that’s been percolating since Alessandro Michele took over at Gucci. Her center part and retro shades, personal style trademarks of hers for years already, add to a sexy, louche look that’s also beautifully put together.

Christine Centenera at Dries Van Noten FW2015

Nothing says “summertime” like a crisp all white outfit. Christine Centenera was elegantly turned out in an optic white tunic layered over a white shirt and white slit maxi skirt at the Dries Van Noten show.

Christina Pitanguy at Chloe SS2015

Christina Pitanguy at Chloe SS2015

This sophisticated but relaxed look is the way to dress right now. At the Chloe show in Paris, Christina Pitanguy mixed and oversized cream colored top with a clingy luxex pleated skirt and platform heels. It’s all about volume, kept in check with flattering proportions.

Yoyo Cau at Sacai FW2015

Yoyo Cao at Sacai FW2015

Loved this interpretation of trends on Yoyo Cao that’s current without being over the top: a bolero jacket and hat with layered necklaces and a ’70s-style patchwork denim maxi skirt.
