Irene Kim at Sacai SS2017

Loved the details in this look on Irene Kim at Sacai: the strappy black leather overalls, the cutouts in the sweater, and the crushed velvet boots. Even better: her outfit matches her hair!

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.

Tiffany Hsu at Miu Miu FW2016

The weather feels a little like fall today and as such we’re going to do some trend spotting for September. Velvet was on the checklists of some major retailers this past fashion month – look for more of it in stores come fall. Tiffany Hsu wore a dramatic ruched red velvet dress to the Miu Miu show in Paris.

Gilda Ambrosio at Maison Martin Margiela FW2016

At the Maison Martin Margiela show, Gilda Ambrosio wore two trends we’ve been seeing a lot of: velvet and choker necklaces. And the two things go together so well, in a Stevie Nicks kind of way.

Green Tweed and Velvet, Outside Armani

Love the saturated moss green of her velvet blazer and how it plays off the green in her tweed pants. Also, burgundy and green is one of my favorite color combinations for fall.

Parisa at H&M

Whenever I go to parties, I’m secretly on the lookout for fashion inspiration from the other guests. Parisa, who works for H&M, mastered the sartorial mix of work and play at the H&M Conscious Collection party last week. The loose, velvet flocked black jacket has a boho flair for evening, but the crisp white blouse and printed pants (both H&M) are perfectly suitable for work. Most importantly: black ankle boots that have a heel but not too high a heel. You want to be able to work the party!

Candice Lake at Chanel

I loved the combination of colors and textures on Aussie photographer and blogger Candice Lake at Chanel. The Hockley London fur is a nice flash of cheerful yellow on an overcast day, and the black velvet skirt is the perfect counterpart. Plus: red lipstick is the way to go with a bright coat.
