Don’t think that because summer’s on the wane, so are crop tops. Long sleeved ones like this one are sure to be a popular choice come September and October, especially when paired with a cool maxi skirt.
Loved this pretty pink rose print maxi skirt on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at Ulyana Sergeenko’s couture show in Paris. Mixed with a gray sweater, it would make a great transitional outfit for September too.
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.
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.
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.
Ursina Gysi looked super cool in a black maxi skirt paired with a black pleated biker jacket with a burgundy trim at the collar at the Issey Miyake show.
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 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.
Miroslava Mikheeva Duma put together a beautiful outfit for yesterday’s Hermes show in Paris and carried a green crocodile Hermes bag.
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.
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.
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.
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.
