I know I’ve been neglecting the blog to a point where social services may take it away from me until I prove I can still be a good and responsible parent to it; I apologize to anyone who actually cares about it. BUT, even with all the moving/vacation craze, I wouldn’t (couldn’t) miss Copenhagen Fashion Week: my favorite of all non-major fashion weeks. The street style is as unique as the runway itself, crazy vibrant and always inspiring; makes you want to wear color over color. Even worse, makes you want to look forward to Autumn!
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).
Despite being the least favorite fashion week of many – and therefore the one that’s taken the least seriously by fashion industry – London Fashion Week always manages to deliver with the street style thanks to big European guns like Camille Charriere, Lucy Williams, Pandora Sykes, Hedvig Opshaug and so on. It was a breath of fresh (and hot) air after frigid NYC and a subtle and quotidian transition to Milan and color/print extravaganza, with so many seasonal and next-seasonal inspirational looks. Here are my 75 favorite street style looks from LFW…
The best part of fashion week (month) is that it actually comes to an end. It’s hard to believe but after 28 days of fashion overload and literally making me sick on the last day (coincidence?) it’s finally over. The trends to study and endless shopping lists are perpetual; however now it’s easier to examine the Paris Fashion Week street style, which seemed like it’s never going to come to a close. Get your moodboards and yellow legal pads out, time to take notes: I already have the oxfords (look alikes) above so one down, a million to go!
