Street Chic: Blue Shorts and a Straw Hat

Here’s another stylish look from a blazing hot Paris fashion week: brightly-colored, high-waisted shorts and a straw topper. If you’ve got legs, shorts are super flattering. Dress them up with a nice blouse and espadrille wedges.

White Prada Dress, Outside the Miu Miu Show

A crisp white dress like this one by Prada never melts in the heat. The pop of color from the bag is the perfect finishing touch.

Street Chic: Beating the Heat in Paris

This incredibly hot weather is reminding me of something unexpected: last October in Paris, when temperatures soared into the 90s. Nevertheless the stylish women of Paris fashion week managed to looked pulled together and professional while going to the shows. Stylist Barbara Martello kept cool in a flared skirt and black silk tank top. Sexy shoes – not flip flops – make a barely-there outfit more formal in crazy heat.

Bryanboy at Chanel

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just design your own clothes when you can’t find exactly the right item in stores? That’s what fashion blogger Bryanboy has been doing, picking out fabric and patterns and having his clothes tailor made. The jacket and pants are his own design, the sweater is Sonia Rykiel.

Snakeskin Pants at Costume National

There’s no need to wait until spring to start wearing snakeskin, even though this pattern was all over the runways for the new season. The digitized print is already popping up everywhere on dresses, jeans and pants, as on this well-dressed attendee at the Costume National show in Paris.

Prints Please

Digital printing has made even the most complex patterns a reality, as Holli Rogers and Natalie Massenet demonstrate with two intricately printed dresses, one a snakeskin pattern, the other a floral, seen here outside the Chloe show in Paris.

Ulyana Sergeenko at Valentino

The beautiful and stylish Ulyana Sergeenko of Glamour Magazine Russia certainly has a flair for drama, as evidenced by this full length plaid dress and bustier paired with a jaunty hat. The look is goddess of the hunt, high fashion version.

Arizona Muse at Hermès

Arizona Muse rocked her trademark cowboy hat when she left the Hermès show in Paris. The black bra under a sheer white shirt is a particularly sexy interpretation of the black and white trend.

Seventies Look, Outside Carlos Miele

Personally I’m loving the ’70s look for this fall. The wide legged jeans (J Brand, I believe) and floppy wide brimmed hat are so Love Story, conjuring up a romanticized collegiate vibe of years past.

Vanessa Friedman at Louis Vuitton

FT fashion editor and front-row fixture Vanessa Friedman wore a great high-low mix to Louis Vuitton, on the last day of fashion month. This outfit is actually quite comfortable and warm – it’s a sweatshirt jersey dress under that luxurious fur vest – but so chic.

Fall Colors, Outside Hermès

Loved the saturated fall colors in this cute skirt and top ensemble with leopard print flats. The contrasting white collar is also great for Fall 2011.
