A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
A pop of orange on Jan Quammie in a leather trench stood out from the crowd this winter in NYC.
When the weather gets tough, leather vests and pants are an even tougher shield against the cold. At the Balmain show in Paris, a guest wore an embossed snakeskin-giraffe print leather vest and green leather leggings. Chic armor.
One of the best things about getting dressed in warm weather: it can be as simple as just putting on a pretty dress. Work it for as long as you can, since fall is coming soon. Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a pink snakeskin print Just Cavalli dress to the show in Milan.
Kendall Jenner was on the scene in Paris during couture week, right before she walked the runway for Chanel. We spotted her in a a blue snakeskin jacket and crop top walking through the Place Vendôme.
Caroline Issa looked fabulous in a red dress and snakeskin print vest by Emily Wickstead at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris. The shoes are by Paul Andrew.
Years after Alexander Wang brought it to the runway, sporty mesh is still being repurposed as high fashion. The intricate texture really brings out the beautiful lines of this ruffled skirt and crop top on Nausheen Shah at the Elie Saab couture show in Paris.
Elina Halimi of Paris’ Kabuki boutique wore a snakeskin print jacket and wide-legged ivory trousers to the Chanel show. This is the new shape of pants for 2014 – wide-legged and cropped to reveal the ankle – and yes, you can wear white boots before Memorial Day. They’re actually great for spring.
Graphic print tees are a cool way to amp up your summer wardrobe, but building an outfit around them can be challenging. This guy at the Derek Lam show layered a snakeskin print tee over a white button down and paired it with neutral khakis and black accessories – a strategy that would work for men and women.
Stylist extraodinaire Elisa Nalin looked quite elegant in a Valentino coat, dress and heels at the Trussardi show in Milan. Close-up of her Fendi bag and Valentino shoes after the jump. These were one of several pairs of shoes seen outside the shows with a clear acrylic heel that makes the wearer look as if she’s floating on air. Very Cinderella! (more…)
Marie Claire editor Zanna Roberts Rassi arrived at Monday’s Parsons MFA exhibit looking just as chic as she does during fashion week. We’ve been seeing bright pants on a lot of trendsetters now, but what makes her look particularly cool is how she pairs these Christopher Kane for J Brand neon-bright yellow jeans with a classic military drab jacket. She’s customized the jeans by tucking the flared leg into her lace-up boots. Love it.
A crazy thing happened on the way to Barneys yesterday – Arizona Muse walked by! Here she is looking gorgeous without a stitch of makeup. The super cool faux python bag with bright red piping is Stella McCartney, and her trench with patent leather sleeves is Burberry.
Amid all the fantastical outfits of Paris fashion week, it’s the classic work attire that provides the most useful inspiration. Virginia Smith wore an off-white silk button down and tailored trousers to the Lanvin show. The accessories – python print clutch and polished brown leather boots – are what makes it fashion.
