A beautiful blue velvet belted suit on Deena Abdulaziz at the Dior couture show.
Leave it to mix master Veronika Heilbrunner to combine a Fendi coat with a Metallica tee, as seen here at the Chanel couture show.
Tina Leung wore a great combination of a Raf Simons puffer over a Courreges black and white jacket to Paris couture week. Her hair and makeup are Dior.
Just when we were getting used to the wide-legged pants silhouette, it seems to be moving back in the other direction. Spotted on several influential guests at the Paris shows, including stylist Barbara Martello, were big puffer jackets like this one by Carmen March with skinny pants or even stirrup leggings like these.
Loved the interplay of patterns in this embroidered sheer dress by Self Portrait with a leopard bag on Tiffany Hsu at the Erdem show.
The weather’s getting colder, and it’s time to get cozy. Caroline Issa looked comfy but chic in a cashmere turtleneck sweater and pale gray coat and trousers at the Peter Pilotto show in London.
Combat boots have been a major trend for fall 2016, as seen on Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio after walking the Alberta Ferretti show.
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.
There’s something particularly inspiring about punk-inspired looks right now. Caroline Daur wore a choker studded with beads that look like pins and a pink Carven top to 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.
An updated cut for skinny jeans/pants is one with flare, cropped at the ankle to show off those shoes, as seen on Taylor Tomasi Hill at the Carven show in Paris.
Layering is more than a means of keeping warm. At the Sacai show in Paris, Helena Bordon layered a turtleneck under a patent leather bustier for a look that was both chic and cozy. This technique dials down the sexiness of slip dresses and strapless tops to make them work for daytime. It’s also a way of extending your summer wardrobe into the cooler months.
Loved the details in this look on Irene Kim at Sacai: the strappy black leather overalls, the cutouts in the sweater, and the crushed velvet boots. Even better: her outfit matches her hair!
Another nice high-low mix of Prada and street wear, this time on Giovanna Battaglia. At the Valentino show, she topped a denim shirt and Fenty x Puma sneakers with a gold jacquard Prada coat. The flash of ankle keeps the combination of jeans and a long coat chic, not clunky.
