Fashion Week

Models and fashion gurus have boarded their planes and there is significantly less foot traffic along the Champs-Elysées: Fall fashion week has wrapped up in Paris! Here are a few of my favorite looks from the Parisian runways:

1. Saint Laurent

Saint-laurent-fall-2014-paris-fashion-week

Saint Laurent is one of my favorite houses, always, and I am fully obsessed with their fall line. The ’60s British schoolgirl look fascinates me, and I love how Saint Laurent approached it with a glam twist.

2. Chloé

Chloe-fall-2014-paris-fashion-week-1

Chloé took a softer approach to fall with cream-colored jackets and oversized wool turtlenecks. The most intriguing pieces from the show were the textured, pastel pumps, fit for a lazy Queen.

3. Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen brought the shiniest, most glam accessories to Paris. The gem-covered combat boots and star cuff felt like they were designed for the ’90s counterculture girl, but I could see them becoming a staple of the high-end gala this fall.

4. Stella McCartney

I had so much fun watching the Stella McCartney show! I mean, watching Cara and Joan Smalls dancing down the runway in their oversized, cozy sweaters basically made my life.

Get the London Look

Even though London fashion week has wrapped up and eyes are now on Paris, I’m still enamored with a bunch of the street style trends I saw from the UK.

This is one of my favorite street looks from London: the seemingly wet hair, black jeans and hat, and oversized sweater make it an easy, comfortable look that’s still fashion forward. Rolling out of bed never looked so wonderfully trendy!

To replicate this look, try combining these pieces:

 Textured Sweater | High Waist Jeans | Bowler Hat

To make your hair appear wet, either actually get your hair wet (a foolproof tip) or use a styling spray. It’s super easy to mimic a fashion week savvy look! Check out The Thread for more street style inspiration from Milan and Paris. 🙂

It’s pretty clear that I love Fashion Week and anything glittery or glitzy. So combining these two things is sure to set my heart a-flutter. I’m currently swooning over the collections that have shown so far at London Fashion Week. Make sure to keep up with The Thread for daily coverage of the shows to come.

Once again, I have been sucked into the street-style vortex. Ever since New York Fashion Week started, I’ve spent every waking moment refreshing The Thread to see if any new street style shots have been posted. Luckily for me, The Thread is updated multiple times a day with more and more fabulous NYFW photos each time. It was so hard for me to narrow down my favorite pictures, but I picked the best of the best to showcase here on the BP. blog!

Trend Alert: Slip-Ons

My days of wearing ankle booties have come and gone, and now I’ve moved on to a new shoe obsession: slip ons. We’re all guilty of owning a beat-up pair of Vans or Converse that we can’t seem to get rid of because they’re so darn comfy. News flash: Shoe designers everywhere are updating the classic Vans slip-on style for spring in new textures such as faux croc skin and faux pony hair, so that you can be comfortable but look chic, too.

This dynamic duo is combining all of my favorite spring trends: slip-ons, full skirts, chic sweatshirts and holographic sunglasses.

We’re in the midst of New York Fashion Week, getting introduced to the trends and vibes of Fall 2014. So far, I’ve seen bright colors, innovative construction and a surprising theme of delicate vs. harsh.

Although there are still more shows to come (I’m looking at you, Rodarte and Marc Jacobs), these are my favorite collections so far!

1. Alexander Wang

Alexander-wang-fall-2014-new-york-fashion-week-2

Alexander Wang brought his Wonderkind reputation to the runway for his futuristic Fall ’14 collection. I love those heels that double as a half-boot-type thing. Trust Wang to change the silhouette of a pair of pumps!

2. Tadashi Shoji

Tadashi-shoji-fall-winter-2014

Before NYFW, I was relatively unfamiliar with Tadashi Shoji, but after this collection, I am a definite fan. The intricate lace dresses make me want to go to a garden party with Juliette Capulet and Gina Lollobrigida. They are so beautiful and delicate and fabulous and wonderful—pardon me I need to go listen to TSwift and regain my ability to breathe.

3. Prabal Gurung

Prabal-gurung-fall-2014-new-york-fashion-week-1

This is my favorite of Prabal Gurung‘s cocktail- and sportswear-rich collection. I love the embellished fabric and asymmetry that makes it fit for a red carpet or dinner party.
