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.
This woman was one of many wearing all black on the streets of New York today, the day after the 2016 election. Hot pants may be unusual in November, but the heart-shaped sunglasses should be a tip off: she is wearing an almost exact replica of the look of Darlene in Mr. Robot, the TV show about a dystopian future in which hackers band together under a group called “F Society.”
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.
This trend’s got legs: pajama dressing has been around for a couple seasons now, but this fall the looks are more sophisticated, like this navy silk pajama set on Chiara Ferragni. We noticed many women dressing for evening shows and dinners in silk pajamas. The style has particular appeal because it’s so comfortable, which is the way women really want to dress now.
Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.
Robe dressing is the new pajama dressing? Gilda Ambrosio belted a silk robe with a fanny pack at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
Beautiful blue, white and red on Chriselle Lim, who kept it casual but elegant at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
If you think of all white as the summer equivalent of all black, you will get over any qualms you have about wearing it. This classic neutral makes a statement while keeping you cool. Paula Goldstein posed in all white outside the Dior couture show in Paris.
Polka dots are the quintessential summer print, and they’re especially pretty in a long silk dress, as seen on Candela at the Schiaparelli show in Paris.
One trend we noticed at the Governors Ball – several stylish attendees were wearing chinoiserie-style robes as outerwear. Stylist Catherine Baba of Paris has been doing this for years, often pairing hers with a sun hat.
Less than a month to go until the couture crowd descends on Paris for another round of haute couture shows. Outside the Ulyana Sergeenko show last summer, a guest stepped out of a limo in a crisp look in all white from head to toe.
In the press: a whole slideshow of photos I took for the New York Times Styles section for the Governors Ball. There were a few cool looks among the sea of jorts, notably this one on Jessica Louise Dye, who coordinated a bunch of balloons with her outfit. Fun and extremely practical for the friends trying to find each other at this huge music festival.
Graphic punch: Instagram’s Eva Chen wore graphic print in black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
Maybe you had a Cinco de Mayo outfit ready to go for tonight, but it did not include a wool coat. Because although it is freezing, it is May. At the Milan fashion shows, Erica Pelosini effortlessly turned a warm weather outfit into a cool weather one by adding suede boots and a light colored coat – one that even goes with a sheer spring dress.
It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.
This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!
