Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Girl wore crisp black, white and green stripes and white booties to the Thakoon show in New York.
Welcome to New York Fashion Week! It’s great to see all our editors out there in their coolest New York looks, like Lucky’s Eva Chen, trendsetting as always in a zebra-stripe coat, nautical hat and chunky creepers. It’s a classic downtown outfit to usher in the new season.
This girl really knows how to put an outfit together! Taylor Tomasi Hill wrapped a black and white striped scarf over a blue pantsuit and belted the whole thing, pairing it with black and white gingham shoes. It’s pretty brilliant, but it looks effortless. That’s another fashionable T.T. – Tommy Ton – in the background.
Model Maria Loks wore Dries van Noten’s vertical stripe top when exiting the show in Paris, styling it nicely with a crisp white button down underneath. Also note the running shoes, a popular footwear choice for a lot of models and photographers during fashion week. I definitely had shoe envy!
Want an instant, free update to your look? Tie a lightweight sweater or shirt around your waist, ’90s style. That’s all you have to do to be right on trend this fall. This guest at the Blugirl show in Milan artfully mixed a plaid skirt with a striped sweater and striped platforms.
The ever-stylish Elina Halimi of Kabuki Paris swished by the Alberta Ferretti show in Milan in a red and blue striped Dries van Noten skirt with fringe, beaded sweatshirt, gold booties and a motorcycle jacket.
In the final moments of Paris fashion week, model Edie Campbell opened Marc Jacobs’ final show for Louis Vuitton wearing little more than Stephen Sprouse-inspired body paint. Definitely watch the show online if you haven’t seen it already – it’s gorgeous and will surely be a historic moment in fashion. Then, she exited the tents still in full body paint – with rolly bag, on her way to the airport! It’s Edie’s trademark insouciant cool. Models: they aren’t just like us, and God bless them for it.
Welcome to Milan fashion week! First show: Gucci. We’ve seen a lot of black and white on the streets this season but not a lot of gray, which may be why this elegant and sporty look in gray and white seemed like such a breath of fresh air. Also note the boots – just above the ankle is the way to go for fall.
Sul Gi, an aspiring designer who made quite an impression on Susie Bubble, wore this great vintage-inspired outfit to the Chanel Couture show.
Trendsetter and street style muse Miroslava Duma wore a couple of sportswear-inspired dresses during Paris couture week, including this blue and orange colorblocked Dior dress at the Dior couture show. Note that she pairs it with super ladylike accessories. Pearl earrings, electric blue heels and a black Hermès bag keep the look very polished.
This summer has presented some real sartorial challenges when it comes to outdoor events in NYC. This Saturday’s new Parisian Ball on Governor’s Island, a big Bastille Day bash complete with vintage carnival rides, started out drizzly but hot for a long event that wouldn’t end til midnight. These two guests rose to the challenge with outdoor festival wear that’s practical but pretty – overalls paired with nautical stripes and a blue and red head wreath on the left and a blue and white print top with red and white earrings on the right.
Elle’s Leaf Greener wore Louis Vuitton to the show this spring in Paris. Black and white stripes like this are a bold graphic statement – wear them if you dare! The jacket and skirt look even cuter with the black and white checked sunglasses.
At the Gucci show in Milan, blogger Doina Ciobanu of the Golden Diamonds wore a print that riffed on the popular vertical black and white Louis Vuitton stripes. Here the print is abstract and cut on the diagonal – very cool.
Loved the ethic stripes of this fur-trimmed coat on Viviana Volpicella outside the Roberto Cavalli show. The boots are Givenchy.
