Cult Gaia Ark bag SPACE Street Style Style

Cult Gaia: Instagram’s Favorite Bag Makes a Great Gift (Especially for You)

We can’t endorse all Instagram trends (car and gym #selfies will never be our thing). But one craze that we’ve liked so much it’s moved on to love is the graceful Cult Gaia bag that seems to be in the hand of every street-style star. The Ark, in particular, is something of an obsession for us—and many others, it seems. Its sleek crescent shape works with outfits both casual and formal. Its hypnotic curve subtly draws focus to its beautifully unique and instantly (Insta-ly) identifiable design.

Here, we’ve collected some of our favorite shots of the bag in action. We think you’ll develop a #crush at least as serious as ours. And disclaimer: if you post a pic of you with this bag on your Instagram account, know that we’re watching.

Mad for Monochrome: How to Wear Head-to-Toe Color

Photos by Indigital Images

Forget the black-on-black uniform from last winter. Instead, opt for all-cobalt office wear or ballet-pink velvet. As monochrome trends get more colorful by the season, we say the brighter the better. One-tonal outfitting may seem challenging at first. But don’t be intimidated. Just focus on the structural elements of your garb, like texture and shape, and remember that now’s the time to play with accessories—also, a statement red lip goes far in elevating your look.

Read on for some of our favorite colors and shopping options for going full-on monochrome, so you can lead the trend.

Winter Hats for All Kinds of Weather Street Style Style

Hot Hat Styles to Keep You Warm This Winter

Photos by Crystal Nicodemus and Kristin Yamada

Not dressing for the weather is never in fashion—after all, shivering is pretty unflattering. And yet, sometimes cold weather accessories cramp our style. Especially when it comes to hats. Finding one that suits us and our attire is a challenge. One we accept!

Taking our cues from the street-style set, we’ve rounded up several hats and caps to keep us warm this winter. They’re all really so chic, we’re calling them this season’s crowning achievement.

The Sweater Style Danish It Girls Love

For a tiny country, Denmark has cornered the international market on coolness. Celebrity chef René Redzepi put hyperlocal cuisine and foraged foods on the menu. Nordic noir shows like The Killing and The Bridge spawned streaming binge sessions around the globe. “Hygge” had us all swaddled in wooly blankets in front of fires seeking the Dane’s national brand of coziness.

Then there are the Danish It girls, like Pernille Teisbaek and Emili Sindlev, who epitomize Scandi style. Truly, Copenhagen may just be our favorite city for the mellow yet sophisticated looks on its streets. One tip we picked up from these Northern beauties in the hip district of Nørrebro: Scandinavian-inspired sweaters are the next heritage piece primed for mass appeal. Their folksy patterns, colorful yarns and snug warmth make them so inviting.

Here are a few of our favorite cheery knits to shop now. Pair them with pants or skirts for a fresh fall look. And feel free to mix prints with your knits: it’s how the Danes do it.

Boots: fall’s must-have and as ubiquitous as a wool scarf, but with the power to make or break your entire outfit. Before replacing last year’s black booties with another, less-worn pair, consider upgrading your staple shoe altogether. We’ve gathered the season’s most-buzzed-about boot trends, plus shoppable links for you to refresh your soles. From winter whites to slouchy, over-the-knee styles, there’s something for everyone to break out of their comfort zone and, perhaps, slip into a pair of silver space boots.

Fashion Week Street Style Style

Our Favorite Style Stars from Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018

Photos by Crystal Nicodemus

Our street-style photographer Crystal Nicodemus on the ladies whose looks commanded her lens. 

Paris Fashion Week was a maelstrom of standout fashion and chaotic venues, with the city as a stunning backdrop to classic styles. Trench coats and menswear-inspired suiting were among the top themes. Texture continued to command, with lots of corduroy, shearling, velvet and silks. Patterns tended to be more masculine than we’ve seen of late: more plaid than floral, more stripes than animal. The palette was also a bit more subdued than we saw in New York; tans and browns abounded, with pops of red and yellow to keep things bold.

It’s been an absolute pleasure sharing this journey with you all.  I hope you’ve enjoyed peeking in on the wildest month of the fashion calendar. Merci, mes amis!
