Iselin Steiro by Brianna Capozzi for Pop Magazine Spring/Summer 2017
Every year I religiously follow fashion month, checking every single show on a daily basis and try to take mental notes of new styling tricks and trends, what I should buy for the coming season and what I should write about. Though this year it got kind of hectic with my ongoing sickness and by the time Paris Fashion Week kicked off, there were already too many things to talk about so I decided to wait till the end and make a post of all my favorite individual looks rather than collections and trend breakdowns. I do this every season anyway, save all my “I can use this styling trick” photos and check it regularly, I’ve just never shared it with you guys. So here goes; my 100 best looks from Fall 2017 fashion month to buy (pink, plaid, oversize blazers, sock boots, long fur coats), to admire (Balenciaga, Céline, Ellery, Proenza Schouler), to inspire (one shoulder knitwear, tops over shirts, belts over jackets, monochrome, clashing stripes, luxury kitsch).
Fashion month is finally over and despite not getting off my couch for even a second this whole time, I’m exhausted. But luckily it all ends with Paris so we are left with lots and lots of Balenciaga and Céline in our minds, to keep it going for the months to come. My one trend takeaway from the whole thing though: if you ever bought two different colors of the same shoe just because you like it so much and have always felt guilty, now is your time to flaunt both of them at the same time with no guilt. For more inspiration (because we won’t be getting a new batch of street style looks until June) here are my favorite 90 looks from Paris Fashion Week.
If there’s one upside of being stuck to bed not going out at all sick, it’s spending hours and hours watching SATC on repeat and scrolling through street style photos all day long with no guilt at all. Don’t get me wrong, I do it on a regular non-sick fashion month too, only this time I don’t feel like screaming “get a life Elif!”. Anyways, as Paris Fashion Week approaches and inspiration is piling up, my many many shopping carts on multiple websites are overflowing. In terms of inspiration that will influence your spring/fall shopping, there are two major take outs from Milan Fashion Week streets: 1) pink and orange explosion (which I personally can’t get behind) 2) Gucci and suits (this I definitely can get behind).
If it weren’t for Taraji P.Henson and the final 4 (meaning the last 4 memorable arrivals on the red carpet: Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Viola Davis and Naomie Harris) this red carpet could have easily gone in history as the worst of the worst. So many fails, safe and boring choices, I’m really underwhelmed of everything I’ve seen tonight – and quite frankly really disappointed since this will be the last major red carpet till MET Gala in May. It was so bad that I HAD TO add Dakota Johnson in that should-have-been-beautiful-but-it’s-not butter Gucci and her weird hair & Jessica Biel in that gorgeous Kaufmanfranco that she managed to ruin with that horrible necklace to the best dressed list in order to reach 20 looks in total. Couple of notes to take before wedding/prom season: black velvet is IN so deep that.. OK I’m not going to make a sex joke about it but it’s IN. Also high neck red gowns, if you’re looking for an alternative style that non of your cousins will …
