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 don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing: Sofie Valkiers in a swingy white dress at Atelier Versace FW2015.
Another good idea for a simple but polished fashion week “uniform” when it’s 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius) in New York: a lightweight white cotton dress with black boots.
A little outfit inspiration from last year’s September shows: There is no need to leave the beach completely behind when arriving on the fashion week scene. On the first day of fashion week last year, one guest paired a beachy white dress with polished accessories.
LeeLee Sobieski wore a white Dior dress and silk boots to the Dior couture show in Paris.
The gorgeous Miranda Kerr arrived at yesterday’s Stella McCartney garden party resort show in New York in a simple white shift dress and fabulous bag with pink handles.
The weather this week reminds me of the weather during last summer’s couture week in Paris, when it was relentlessly rainy and gloomy – in the middle of July! This didn’t trouble the fashion set too much, however – one solution, as Carine demonstrated, was to wear your usual summer dress but pair it with great boots or a jacket.
I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.
I love this combination of a formal gown made of exquisite white lace with a casual beret and plaid jacket. The jewelry and Chanel bag take it up a notch further, styling-wise. Very French, very Chanel.
Garage Magazine’s Michelle Elie often wears Comme des Garçons, but this sculptural white dress by the label was one of my favorite pieces. She paired it with gold disc Givenchy earrrings for more high-drama gorgeousness. Detail shot after the jump.
Such a great summer-to-fall transitional outfit on a guest at the Chanel show. She tops a summery white minidress with a boucle Chanel jacket, black Chanel hat and adds black Chanel boots with a chain motif. The bag is Hermès. This is the luxury version of transitional, but you could also try the same mix with any non-Chanel items you have on hand.
Here’s another famous beauty for you: Karen Elson, who arrived at the Alexander Wang show in a white dress by the designer. She has the most gorgeous alabaster skin and is even prettier in person.
Vogue Turkey’s editor at large Ece Sukan mixed a white summer dress with a black turtleneck and snakeskin boots in one very cool outfit outside the Viktor & Rolf show.
