Another good idea for a simple but polished fashion week “uniform” when it’s 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius) in New York: a lightweight white cotton dress with black boots.
It may be too hot to throw on a suede jacket, but it’s never too soon to bust out the latest accessories. Jen Mankins of the highly influential Brooklyn boutique Bird ushered in the fall last September with a blue Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and sculptural necklace.
The fact that Anna Ewers is wearing a leather jacket and jeans in this photo from last September leads me to believe that someday the temperature in New York City may actually drop below 90 degrees. Get ready! Beauty shot of Anna and Ola Rudnicka, after the jump. (more…)
An elegant long white silk skirt dialed down somewhat by a quilted cropped top in T-shirt form.
Though fall has its pleasures, it’s always a struggle to let go of summer, even when dressing for New York Fashion Week in September. But you don’t have to pack away all your summer favorites just yet. Alexis Bryan Morgan, now of Rent the Runway, paired a lightweight crimson dress with tassels and embroidery with heels and a structured olive green bag for an outfit that added a businesslike edge to a summertime staple.
Two great transitional outfits on models Ola Rudnicka and Maja Salamon that kept the fun spirit of summer going but introduced a bit of fall seriousness with polished accessories.
One good thing about super hot weather: nothing comes between you and your accessories. Helena Bordon wore a Snob Essentials crossbody bag over striped shorts and a striped crop top at the Prabal Gurung show.
If I remember this moment correctly, a beautiful, well-dressed woman walked into the Prabal Gurung show, a couple of us snapped her photo, but no one even asked her to stop – no one recognized Lily Aldridge, including me, until now. The Prabal Gurung show last fall was the first fashion show she ever attended as a guest. So here’s one from the archives: Lily Aldridge in a great Prabal Gurung print shift dress, outside the show last September.
Impeccable style from head to toe: a Milanese guest arrived at the Gucci SS2015 show in wide-legged white trousers, pink cap toe heels, a blue button down and a bright red printed helmet. Molto italiana.
A great vintage look in vivid coral on J.J. Martin at the Stella Jean show in Milan – and of course she was wearing flatform sandals before most of us were.
An all-white outfit looks even better accessorized with a colorful bag, like this Paula Cademartori one carried by Carola Bernard in Milan.
Loved this burst of yellow and white at the Kenzo show in Paris, plus the amazing architectural details on her sweater.
This sophisticated but relaxed look is the way to dress right now. At the Chloe show in Paris, Christina Pitanguy mixed and oversized cream colored top with a clingy luxex pleated skirt and platform heels. It’s all about volume, kept in check with flattering proportions.
The skirt or dress and sneakers trend is one of the better ones in the past few years. A guest at the Chloe show in Paris mixed a nautically inspired striped skirt with white sneakers and a print top for an easy and chic way to get around the city.
