We are now entering into prime shoe season, when it’s warm enough to ditch the socks but not so hot that you can’t even bear to wear shoes. Today’s cropped pants are great for showcasing a new pair, especially mules, which are shaping up to be the shoe of the season, as seen on Victoria Magrath in London.
Spotted outside the Marchesa bridal show: model Amanda Wellsh in black leather pants. It’s not time to put these away quite yet: they work well on a cool or rainy spring day, especially when you show a little ankle.
A surprising micro trend that’s emerging right now: white socks, worn even with heels, though they’ve also been spotted with boat shoes or loafers. Irina Lakicevic styled hers to make black shoes look like spats at the Chanel show.
Aimee Song wore the color combo of red and blue to the Chanel show in Paris. The chambray jacket and skirt are a great way to welcome the warmer weather – and these Chanel mules are particularly popular with the fashion crowd.
Pam Allier doubled down on bright colors, including cherry red pants, on a springlike day at the Gucci show.
A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
A nice vintage mix of dressy and casual on Clara Racz at the Calvin Klein show this winter.
Flashback to last winter’s deep freeze: if in doubt, pile on the layers, as Taylor Tomasi Hill did outside Milk Studios during last February’s New York Fashion Week.
A burst of yellow – and a spring fashion preview in florals and camo – on Bryanboy and Tina Craig aka Bagsnob in Valentino outside the show.
Loved the interplay of patterns in this embroidered sheer dress by Self Portrait with a leopard bag on Tiffany Hsu at the Erdem show.
Robe dressing is the new pajama dressing? Gilda Ambrosio belted a silk robe with a fanny pack at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
Louboutin the man and the shoe is a frequent sighting at the couture shows. Outside the Alexis Mabille show, we spotted a particularly cool pair with a wavy heel and raffia cuff.
How to do gingham now: Alexandra Golovanoff brought this classic check into 2016 with a a voluminous jumpsuit with puffed sleeves. Cute and modern. Also note the new silhouette for heels now: low and blocky.
One of my favorite looks on Leaf Greener at couture week FW2016: a gorgeous green ruffled top and big dangly earrings. The ikat-print heels are an unexpected touch that work really well.
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.
