Sneakers were front and center during Spring 2016 Fashion Week

If there’s one trend that’s been ubiquitous in recent Fashion Weeks, it’s the play for comfy footwear. Both on the runway (ACNE Studios, MSGM, Moncler, Markus Lupfer, Tommy Hilfiger, rag & bone, Adam Selman and others) and running between shows, cushy-soled sneakers have been spotted on some of the most stylish folks in the fashion business.

We rounded up the snazziest sneaks as seen on street-style stars at the last two Fashion Weeks to establish the latest in the sporty shoes and how to wear them. From fur accents to platform silhouettes to girly embellishments, rubber soles offer many ways to go.

Embellished Slip-Ons

Pink embellished sneakers

Bows and crystals were some of the most popular ways to prettify the classic slip-on sneaker during Fashion Week. We like them paired with skirts and as a comfy alternative to ballet flats. The chunkier sole and athletic shape add a strong element to a flirty look. Perhaps for this reason, a blushing pink seemed to be the color choice on the feet of the street-style elite.

Sure, the casualization of workwear is a thing oft lauded as a godsend for modern office life (we definitely aren’t complaining), but international fashion fixture and businesswoman Caroline Issa reminds us that keeping the pro in professional has its perks, too.

There were ruffles on the runway. Culottes were in the streets. ’70s chic was everywhere. But one thing unequivocally concluded by this past Fashion Month: the hat is back for women this fall. There were toppers in London, Panamas in Paris and throngs of boaters, derbys and fedoras in New York.

Here are some of our favorite millinery moments from all the fashion cities, paired with the hats to recreate them. It’s a great way to top off your look this season—and next.
Brixton Buckley floppy wool hat

A broad wool hat provides exceptional coverage from the elements, be it rain or wind, during the fall. Wool is a strong fabric, able to resist water while maintaining its shape. This Brixton floppy wool hat has a slightly western aesthetic without going into cowboy territory, and its wide brim flatters the face by framing your features. We like it with sexy shoulders and minimal makeup.

A classic beret seen on the streets of London during Fashion Week.

This mademoiselle, spied on the London scene, pulled off perfectly matched accessories with a polished mien that helped her stand out from the other English roses. Berets always lend a jaunty air to an outfit, but can come off a bit costumey: The trick is in the styling (no scarf, no baguette, no cigarette). We love how this red version adds a pop of color to an autumn outfit. But there’s no need to match your accessories or outerwear to your hat; use it to accent your outfit in a shade that complements your coloring.

Try this Parkhurst beret in a water-repellent wool for a traditional style. If you feel like adding a textural element, don a knit, like this Free People chunky knit beret in ivory. We think they’re très chic and a super-practical way to protect your coiffure from whatever the weather.

There’s something very feminine and subtly sexy about her dress. The silk drapes beautifully and the pattern is delicate and bold at once. Red silk d’Orsay heels up the femme appeal even further. There’s an enviable grace in the lines of this look. Merci, Katerina!
