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.
The midi skirt paired with a button-down shirt is shaping up to be a key daytime look for spring/summer 2017. This polished but pretty Valentino skirt was spotted on a couple of guests at the resort show in NYC.
A good indicator of great style: An outfit from five years ago still looks au courant today, as with Caroline Seiber at the Chloe show in the Tuileries in March 2012.
A nice vintage mix of dressy and casual on Clara Racz at the Calvin Klein show this winter.
Winter may be upon us, but that hasn’t stopped New Yorkers from dressing up in the morning. In downtown Manhattan, a woman mixed a fringe bag with black and nude brick motif tights and combat boots.
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.
Mix and match: Samantha Angelo of the Eye Travels tied a Saint Pablo tee by Kanye West around a Prada skirt. That’s Kim K. playing “bikini tennis” in the photo.
Love the roomy cut of designer Vika Gazinskaya’s skirt and top, as seen at the Chalayan show in Paris. Comfort is key for fall/winter 2016.
Knitwear is taking on more and more interesting forms, as seen on Veronika Heilbrunner, who wore a knit skirt with keyhole openings at the sides and a sleeveless sweater with yarn fringe, both by Loewe, at the show in Paris.
Forest green and Prince of Wales plaid are classics for fall, but the style is new on Natasha Goldenberg at the Carven show in Paris. Look for more – much more! – of the broad shoulder cut of this jacket and midi length of the skirt – they were all over the runways for spring.
Vetements has really excited fashion fans in a way that few labels have in the recent past. Maybe it’s the combination of nice tailoring with a truly street, elevated athleisure feel. Outside the show yesterday in Paris, where Vetements showed a spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection, Veronika Heilbrunner wore a Vetements tee with a long black leather skirt and sneakers.
If you think of all white as the summer equivalent of all black, you will get over any qualms you have about wearing it. This classic neutral makes a statement while keeping you cool. Paula Goldstein posed in all white outside the Dior couture show in Paris.
The couple that dresses together… Congrats to Giovanna Battaglia and Oscar Engelbert, married this past weekend and seen here at Paris fashion week FW2016 in matching sunny yellow. Check out the Instagram hashtag #oscarandgio for a ton of cute photos of their glamorous wedding in Capri.
Graphic punch: Instagram’s Eva Chen wore graphic print in black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
