As simple as the sweater dress may seem, it’s actually all about taking it up a notch with great accessories. Elena Perminova looked gorgeous as usual in an eggshell white sweater dress, over-the-knee pale suede boots and Chloe bag outside the Chloe show in Paris.
Colorful knits can be like visual vitamin C during a long winter and make great holiday gifts. Model Xiao Wen Ju wore a pink, blue and black sweater, scarf and top by Kenzo after walking the show in Paris.
I love the color burgundy at this time of year. I also love warm turtleneck sweaters, but hate looking schlumpy. Of course, Olivia Palermo managed to style all these things to look quite chic. At the Nina Ricci show in Paris, she ignored the “rule” about not tucking your sweater into your skirt or pants and tucked her burgundy turtleneck sweater partway into a pencil skirt of the same color to emphasize the waistline. Then she topped it with a big statement necklace and added nude heels for a ladylike look. Brava.
If there was one trend takeaway from the S/S 2015 season, it was fringe. It was everywhere: on skirts, on bags, on shoes. A green suede fringe skirt looked beautiful in motion on Micol Sabbadini at the Fendi show in Milan.
Model Soo Joo Park left the Chanel show clad in Chanel, including a double C printed bandana-style silk scarf. Bandana motifs have been big both at Chanel and Saint Laurent, and if you don’t have the budget for one of these designs, you can always get in on the trend with just a regular black and white paisley-print bandana, $2.99 at Ricky’s.
Model Katlin Aas wore a polished and chic version of the rocker chick look after walking the Michael Kors show. Long layers on top are key for fall, as are low heeled boots like these.
Little did we know when we spotted new model Binx Walton after the Chanel fall ready-to-wear show in Paris that she would be part of the label’s fall ad campaign as shot by Karl Lagerfeld. She layered an oversize black sweater with a silver padlock necklace and a sheer purple maxi skirt and mid-calf boots – a look that went well with the hair and makeup from the Chanel show. Close-up, after the jump. (more…)
Loved this pretty pink rose print maxi skirt on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at Ulyana Sergeenko’s couture show in Paris. Mixed with a gray sweater, it would make a great transitional outfit for September too.
Of all the menswear looks we saw on the streets at couture, this was one of my favorites. It’s so simple but so good – just a heathered blue and white sweater, jeans, boots and pale gray blue helmet (that somehow goes with the sweater). Also note that this is a rollneck sweater, similar to what we’re seeing by Chloe for fall 2014. Never say never again, kids.
More miniskirts: Candela Novembre paired hers with a chunky orange sweater and black and white heels at the Giorgio Armani show in Milan. The outfit is all Zara except for the bag, which is by Sara Battaglia.
I love how simple and elegant this look is on model Anja Rubik after the Nina Ricci show. A slim below-the-knee skirt and ankle boots are a great way to dress up an oversize sweater.
