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.
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.
Whimsical, colorful prints are going to be big this fall season, and we got a sneak preview of just how beautiful they can be with Sofia Sanchez de Betak’s star-printed look at the Valentino couture show in Paris.
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.
Braving the elements with a red silk skirt at the Lacoste show in New York.
One of the best looks Kristina Bazan has worn all season: this slit skirt and top by Mugler. Sexy and chic.
An elegant long white silk skirt dialed down somewhat by a quilted cropped top in T-shirt form.
Loved this burst of yellow and white at the Kenzo show in Paris, plus the amazing architectural details on her sweater.
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.
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.
One of my favorite looks on Helena Bordon during Paris fashion week. A striped maxi skirt or dress is a great base for spring layering, and I love how she mixed it with a sheer white off the shoulder sweater. Chloe green bag.
