Alexander Wang

Monica makes layering look easy. She’s definitely mastered the effortless cool style of the Parisian streets. Knotted waist details have been trending a bit this year, and I love this knit dress and its knotted detail. A classic denim jacket worn under a wool coat gives this look textural dimension.

Fringe continues to dominate the street-style scene in Paris. Elle’s long, fringed leather skirt has great movement and adds some modern city style to her nautical look. The drawstring bag has been numero uno all year and shows no signs of stopping. I’m a fan of breaking the old-school navy and black rule, especially when the outcome is as great as this!

NEW! Balenciaga Shoes

There’s something you need to know about Balenciaga shoes: they’re live on Nordstrom.com and in select stores as of … now.

 

There’s something else you should know: This is an exciting time for footwear within the already very exciting brand. For years, under Nicolas Ghesquière, shoes were outsourced to Pierre Hardy. Now that Alexander Wang is at the helm, everything from heels to boots to sneakers happens in-house. 

Here’s to Wang and company owning it, and, perhaps, you owning a pair or two, also.

Elena was calling her driver to take her to the next show, but I couldn’t resist taking a quick snap anyway. Logo tops are everywhere right now, and this J.W. Anderson sweater is too good not to share. Black and white continues to dominate the Fashion Week world, and Elena’s look has well-balanced contrast. Her pleated mini and duster coat are interesting new trends—I can’t wait to experiment with these myself! And two of my favorite things—slip-on sneakers and mirrored sunnies—remain staples of the style scene. Thank goodness!

That’s right—more white! Everyone at Fashion Week is obsessed with all-white looks and Abigail is no exception. While her black leather accessories and heavy chain give this look an urban edge, the clean palette feels modern and minimal. The crop top is practically a requirement at Fashion Week and I love this long-sleeve version, which pairs perfectly with Abigail’s slim midi skirt.

I love all of these amazing monochromatic ensembles we’re seeing this Fashion Week. Bridgit’s chic look is pretty much perfection in cream. Her conceptual sweater vest adds a touch of texture, as does her luxe snakeskin clutch. Aviators are a classic and work seamlessly with this clean, contemporary outfit. And that little pop of color on Bridgit’s platform heels peeking out—genius!

This gorgeous girl is no stranger to our blog. Shae’s covetable, Cali-girl style is up-to-the-minute and decidedly trendy—as a fashion blogger (Peace Love Shae) and stylist, Shae Marie loves fashion and it shows. Her tonal, normcore look is a great mix of sleek and soft, casual and premium, and the drawstring bucket bag she’s carrying is one of the season’s most popular trends. White sporty sneakers are definitely a must-have this Fashion Week!

Tesa is another stylish gal who has nailed the modern, casual one-piece. This subtle jumpsuit has a cool cut and unique design elements that make it stand out. Tesa’s sleek hair and minimalist accessories allow the jumpsuit to shine. I can’t believe I am going to say this, but I have been won over by the Birkenstock trend at last! They’re comfy, nostalgic and look awesome, especially when paired with a Chanel shoulder bag.
