Put on Your Sunnies Face: This Summer’s Sunglasses

Photos by Kristin Yamada

Turns out, the shades that we hide behind when running errands or avoiding paparazzi (real or imagined) are also effective for standing out in a crowd. Case in point: this summer’s festival circuit. In that sea of youthful seraphim taking fashion risks, we found a number of surprising new frame styles.

Beyond the basic cat eye or aviator, sunglasses are getting increasingly playful with jewels, sweeping angles and tinted lenses. These aren’t simply utilitarian sun shields but rather statement pieces worn front and center.

How to Wear Over-the-Knee Boots: A Street-Style Guide

As the weather starts to chill, we see stylish ladies in the world’s fashion hubs boot up. Although ankle-grazing booties are still popular, many fashion fans are taking their footwear to dramatic heights with thigh-high, over-the-knee boots.

Wearing an OTK (that’s industry shorthand) can initially seem daunting. Their sexy thigh-circling style might feel like too much for daywear or, for many, too much for any hour. Non-leggy ladies may also fear that their height will cause less-than-supermodel-length stems to seem squat. These are valid concerns, but we have a couple of tips to allay them.

How to Wear Over-the-Knee boots

A simple mini sheath dress is the easiest article of clothing to pair with extra-tall boots. These dresses keep things neat and short, allowing the boots to stand out, which they’ll do no matter what you wear. But by not overwhelming your look with too many layers or accessories, the boots act as an essential part of, rather than an excessive addition to, the outfit. Petite ladies will have the best success with this dress and boot combo.

Milan Street-Style Stars to Watch

These are the people we can’t wait to see hit the pavement at Milan Fashion Week. Expect them to pull out all the stops for the third leg of runway shows.IMG_0368Pretty much the pioneer of outlandish street style, Anna Dello Russo serves as an idol to many young fashion upstarts striving to be the next queen of the streets. With her knack for making the most unwearable covetable, she continues to be street style’s most photographed subject. Vogue Japan‘s editor-at-large is clearly drawn to the eccentric side of fashion; you can regularly find her sporting radical styles, the shortest hemlines and the loudest accessories. Imitate at your own risk!

Gala Gonzalez (Amulu.com) always looks so incredibly effortless and cool. Today she makes the perfect example of how an easy look composed of casual separates and a cozy coat can be expertly elevated with a great bag and smart footwear. Suede has been a popular theme for handbags, and this rich brown bucket with fringe detailing is particularly covetable. Backless loafers too are a rising trend; the dark black looks sophisticated and sleek paired with her more muted ensemble. Throw on your favorite pair of dark-lens sunnies and you’re Fashion Week street ready!

Peju is hitting all the right trend notes. Fringe and suede are super popular, and the moto jacket is ever present. A neck scarf and Breton cap add some retro-modern French flair. Lace-up flats are a quickly rising theme in the footwear scene and I love Peju’s chic pointed shoes. A striped clutch adds a pattern accent in this sleek city look.

Street Style: Chiara at Marni

While I love Chiara Ferragni’s wild sense of style, sometimes it’s nice to see her pare down her more unique sensibilities and just go for something cute and casual. Granted, only Chiara can make a metallic leather miniskirt seem low-key! A textural coat and bright bag are two trending themes this season, while premium sneakers are a must-have.

Street Style: Chiara at Fendi

Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) is one of the most successful bloggers in the biz at this point. But it’s not just her awesome and unique style that makes her a blog star; it’s also her positive, vibrant energy.

Chiara isn’t afraid to have fun with fashion, which is so refreshing. This look is about simple separates with a twist. Her pink fur vest is a great take on the moto trend, and I love her mini Karl fur charm. Keep it up, Chiara!

xo,
Crystal Nicodemus
