Denim is wildly popular here in London, and I love Veronica’s loose, cropped jeans. Nothing can top the insouciant look of denim with heels this season. Her camel zip-up pairs perfectly with her baby-blue jumper to create a grown-up prep look. Plus, a designer bag always adds a posh pop to any look!

You’ve probably already heard the most popular French electronic bands and not even realized it—not only do they usually sing in accent-free English, they’ll sometimes employ others to sing over their booty-shaking beats.

Air and Daft Punk are just a couple of high-profile examples, the latter most recently collaborating with musician and producer extraordinaire Pharrell Williams (and legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers!) for some tracks on Random Access Memories.

Ink proves that color is here to stay. In a sea of black and white, Ink’s vibrant combination was a standout. She’s incorporating a lot of up-to-the-minute trends into her outfit: the moto, the sweatshirt, neoprene and metallics. Somehow, all these disparate themes meld perfectly together into a fun, youthful look.

HQ Street Style: Denise

We spotted Denise immediately due to her insanely fabulous Azzedine Alaïa shoes. Not surprisingly, she’s one of our buyers in Salon Shoes (read more on Denise in our House Call feature).

Denise is artfully rocking this season’s moto jacket-over-a-dress look as well as successfully working graphic color blocking and architectural footwear into the mix—all without looking costumey or overly done.

Denise said she buys what inspires her and has learned to take more fashion risks as she’s grown older. “I’m always looking for pieces that I don’t have within the fashion spectrum,” she says. “Shoes are the best platform for building your outfit from the ground up (no pun intended)—I have definitely embraced the ‘everywhere is a runway’ philosophy with my footwear!”

Denise, we couldn’t agree more.

I absolutely could not resist snapping a quick pic of mother-daughter duo Reemal and Amaya. Reemal said that Amaya is a fashionista in the making, and it shows!

Seeing them reminded me of when I was a little girl and wanted nothing more than to be just like my mom. Thank you for the sweet interlude during a crazy week, you two!

Preetma is an inspiration. Not only does she always look flawless, but she has a very unique and individual sense of style–one that is not based solely on designer duds.

A lawyer-turned-fashion darling, Preetma has a great personal style blog (The Working Girl, Esq.) and is always a pleasure to catch up with. She is also a returning style star to our blog; I’m sure we’ll see her next season, too!

The lovely Jenna has a classic, vintage chic style that stands out in its simplicity. Sometimes, in a sea of neon and bling, understated chic stands out the most.

Jenna is a freelance writer, but was on assignment for Jezebel–one of my most-loved websites. Her favorite thing about Fashion Week? Reuniting with her friends from abroad and knowing that fall is just around the corner.

Street Report: Noelle

Welcome back, Noelle! This Lucky Magazine editor is back for round two on our blog, and looking as lovely as ever. I absolutely love her mix of neon and graphic prints, and she clearly knows how use accessories to elevate, not overwhelm, an ensemble.

Although she says she can’t wait for cooler weather and chunky knits, her summer glow stands out in the crowd!
