One for the New York Times last week: Jian DeLeon headed out into a snow storm to get to the menswear shows. A baseball cap is actually a great idea for shielding the snow.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Young women who have the abs, like model Alanna Arrington, seen here after walking the Balmain show, are wearing crop tops and bandeau tops well into fall, often under a jacket.
A particularly cute outfit on Laura Neilson at the J. Mendel couture show in Paris. I like the coordinating sailor stripes, and the flats are key for getting around town on a day of multiple shows. Also, she was one of a couple trendsetters spotted during Paris couture week who tucked a sweater into high-waisted trousers.
Rainbows have been a recurring motif in fashion for the past few seasons. If you have anything rainbow, now is the time to bust it out.
Modelpalooza! Devon Windsor, Rachel Hilbert and Anouk van Kleef layered dresses and vests over shorts and bikinis at Coachella day 0ne. Also note the round sunglasses on all three of them. If you buy nothing else this summer, get yourself a pair of these for an instant update.
When it’s spring but it’s freezing: this is actually quite a familiar scenario, because this was the weather throughout this past fashion month. Soften the blow by bundling up with bright colors and graphic prints, like this guest with a striped jacket at the Blugirl show in Milan.
Stripes, solids, and a pop of print and color that acts like a colorful throw pillow – the kind of mix that an interior designer might put together, or in this case, design and lifestyle blogger Athena Calderone of Eye Swoon.
If there is a crowd of teenage girls outside you know who may be inside: Lucky Blue Smith, Instagram phenom and male model of the moment. He exited the show in a look that channeled James Dean via Tommy Hilfiger.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss exited the Ralph Lauren show in style. Her wide-legged white pants and sailor striped crop top were a nice preview of spring fashion to come. The varsity jacket is Dolce & Gabbana, the bag Ralph Lauren. Close up of the lovely Karlie after the jump. (more…)
On the prowl: Christina Pitanguy in a tiger-stripe jacket at the Stella McCartney show in Paris.
Such a sharp look on Karla Martinez de Salas – and believe it or not, she is about six months pregnant! The Miu Miu coat and top are a great boxy shape for maternity wear. The jeans aren’t actual maternity jeans, just low-cut J. Brands that she held onto, waiting for bell bottoms to come back. The wait is up!
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.
I really like how Olivia Palermo styled this outfit, because when one is pulling a pair of (kind of loud) wide-legged black and white striped trousers out of one’s closet, one doesn’t necessarily think, now where is my equally attention-grabbing black and white striped shirt to go with? Yet somehow the whole thing comes together quite elegantly.
This week I shot street style photos at the Kingpins Show, a denim trade show, for Team Peter Stigter in New York. It was a cool experience, and you can see all the photos on the Kingpins Facebook page. From the myriad denim swatches hanging inside to the jeans on the guests, there were so many looks that underscored the ubiquity of denim today. Where would we be without Levi Strauss? On Washington Street, construction workers labored in stone washed jeans while a girl whizzed by in shredded jeans and Converse sneakers.
