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…
Fashion weeks usually make me really happy, despite all the “circus” leading up to fights between bloggers and editors (that I find really, really lame of editors btw), I look forward to fresh inspiration from runways and streets. However this time New York Fashion Week kind of made me sad when I saw all these amazing women looking just as fine even during horrible winter conditions, something which I always claim is the reason why I look like crap in winter. Apparently it’s not winter, it’s me. Here’s hoping these 100 best looks from NYFW starring Ramya Giangola and Jan Michael Quammie will light a fire in me.
Normally I find the fashion calendar deeply disappointing every year in the sense that couture week comes after menswear fashion weeks – street style vise – because I don’t like the transition from real street looks of natural menswear styling to over the top couturesque looks. However this year Demna Gvasalia effect was so dominant even the couture week streets were filled with puffer jackets. In fact puffer jackets were all there is, to a point of absurdity, but no complaints here.
