Carice van Houten a.k.a. the Game of Thrones‘ “Red Queen” looked so positively vibrant in fuchsia at last year’s Schiaparelli show that I didn’t recognize her until now. Just goes to show you want a jolt of summer color can do.
Less than a month to go until the couture crowd descends on Paris for another round of haute couture shows. Outside the Ulyana Sergeenko show last summer, a guest stepped out of a limo in a crisp look in all white from head to toe.
Rainbows have been a recurring motif in fashion for the past few seasons. If you have anything rainbow, now is the time to bust it out.
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.
Covetable shoes, bag, and pretty much everything on Janka Polliani at the Cedric Charlier show in Paris. The clashing colors keep it from being a little too neat.
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.
Colorful cocktail dress season is upon us, and thank God! It makes getting dressed for parties so much easier. Outside the Emporio Armani show, a matching dress, shoes and bag.
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.
“Black and white is always right,” as my aunt likes to say, and there’s never a better time than when the weather is in flux. Candela Novembre paired a white angora sweater with a black pencil skirt and gorgeous heels at the Max Mara show.
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.
We may not be fully out of the cold weather yet, but you can keep it light and breezy with a long lightweight coat, which are getting more play on the streets than cropped jackets this season. Caroline Issa wore a beautiful lace coat by Sacai over cropped jeans to the Valentino show.
Even when the temperature isn’t cooperating, you can bring in the spring with a dose of bright color, as Helena Bordon did in a zippy orange Dior dress outside the couture show. Layer a spring dress over a black top, tights or boots to ease yourself out of winter.
It’s rainy it’s snowing it’s sunny – what to wear? Take a cue from Miroslava Duma, who paired cropped jeans with a white coat and black beret for a great transitional look at the Schiaparelli couture show.
It’s good to see some familiar faces back at Milan Fashion Week, including Candela Novembre, who wore a luxe pajama look by Laura Urbinati in marigold yellow to the Blugirl show.
