We are now entering into prime shoe season, when it’s warm enough to ditch the socks but not so hot that you can’t even bear to wear shoes. Today’s cropped pants are great for showcasing a new pair, especially mules, which are shaping up to be the shoe of the season, as seen on Victoria Magrath in London.
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.
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.
Model of the moment Lineisy Montero has great style off the runway. She was one of several fashion week attendees to wear jackets decorated with pins and decals. Super cool.
Braving the elements with a red silk skirt at the Lacoste show in New York.
I always look back to the winter shows in NYC some fashion inspiration at this time of year. Despite the chilly temps, Nausheen Shah looked perfectly turned out at the Creatures of the Wind show in an oversize coat, cowl neck sweater, wide brim hat and cuffed jeans.
On the move: Tiffany Hsu in a purple jumpsuit with orange turtleneck at the Mugler show in Paris.
A great look in an Anna K dress on Eleonora Carisi at the Lacoste show. Valentino bag. And yes, turtlenecks are still going strong.
It may not be warm enough to ditch that outer layer just yet, but at least we can switch from black to blue for a more springlike look, as Caroline Issa did with a belted coat at the Kenzo show in Paris.
More military green, this time on Ece Sukan at the Sacai show. The way she’s styled this look, with a long coat over a miniskirt and knee-high boots, is perfect for transitional spring weather. It would also work with a trench.
It’s been great to see Miroslava Duma back on the scene at Paris Fashion Week. At the Stella McCartney show yesterday, she wore a mix of shades of brown, patchwork coat and turtleneck sweater and carried a brown suede Hermes bag.
Stylebop fashion director Leila Yavari wore an elegant combination of Celine white culottes and vest with black and white Chloe shoes to the Jil Sander show in Milan.
JJ Martin, who just started a new website about vintage clothing and beautiful Milan interior design, La Double J, wore a vintage floral print velvet coat to the first day of shows.
A cool urban look in black leather and stripes in primary colors on Shine by Three‘s Margaret Zhang outside the Marc by Marc Jacobs show. The striped top gets a little softness from the turtleneck sweater underneath.
One thing the cold weather elicited in New York fashion week guests was a flair for layering. A guest at the Michael Kors show layered a turtleneck and plaid dress under a trench coat, but kept it from getting too conservative by cinching her coat with a leather belt and adding a nose ring and multiple earrings. Also: necklaces over turtlenecks are A Thing now. Celine bag.
