Topshop

Anjelica looks like a modern Penny Lane, in the best way possible. Her fur vest, floral minidress and thigh-high boots are straight out of the ’70s, but still manage to look cutting edge. There’s something so compelling about this nouveau seventies theme that’s taken over the street-style scene. I know it’s a trend that I am dying to try out, especially if I can look even half as cool as Anjelica does.

Another show, another great outfit from Linda Tol! Overalls and jumpsuits continue to be a hot item this season, especially flared-leg styles. This silky patterned pair is so Linda: unique and edgy. A simple turtleneck is the perfect pairing with this statement one-piece. A bold lip and a structured box clutch add even more cool sophistication to the look.

Street Style: Erika at Fendi

Erika is so good at playing with proportion—I love her unique sense of layering and balance. Mixing a sheer skirt and slim trouser of the same print is such a cool idea, and one that I’m putting on my ‘must try’ list. A thick ribbed jumper adds even more interesting texture and lines to the look.

Andrea is the queen of vintage. She manages to make vintage pieces look trendy and effortlessly cool. I love this suede ombré trench and button-front skirt. Thanks to the return of the ’70s, suede is the hottest new texture of the season. Andrea’s neutral palette and tall boots fall into the retro theme, as well.

Zara totally nailed luxe minimalism today. This look is perfectly seasonal casual chic, and I want to copy it immediately! The cozy sweater dress is a top trending item in London, and I love the addition of a leather belt to create some definition. The relaxed coat and nude booties keep the palette neutral and clean, while a pop clutch adds a bit of fun to the look.

Street Style: Ella at Roksanda

Ella is always put together and adorably chic. I love that she knows what works for her and stays true to her feminine aesthetic. The button front skirt is having a major moment thanks to retro trends, and Ella’s denim version is pretty much perfect. A delicate blouse and ombré fur dress up the denim, while glitter tights add some playful sparkle.

Sometimes simplicity stands out. Fiona’s minimalist look is understated and lovely. She’s subtly representing the ’70s trend with her flares and loafers, but her sleek white coat is minimalist modern. A chunky knit turtleneck is ultra trendy and the must-have item of the season.

Street Style: Zina at Burberry

Zina (Fashion Vibe) has dynamic style. I never know what trend she’ll try next, and I love that about her. Today’s look is dark and feminine with a retro modern twist. I am obsessed with that wide belt, which Zina said she found at a London vintage shop (so jealous!). Laced stilettos and the ever-chic Valentino bag are sleek and work well with her voluminous culottes and fur coat.

Fashion Week Journal for Sunday, February 22

See those brown velvet overalls? The baby blue corduroy trousers? The miniskirt? Those looks are not a throwback.

Sure, you’ve seen and heard a lot about the ’70s over the past (almost) two weeks, but backstage after yesterday’s star-studded show at the Tate BritainTopshop Unique Creative Director Kate Phelan told me she’s not going retro, she’s encouraging a sort of reference-free way of dressing that favors personal perspective over time and place.
