Street Report: Edgy Femininity Outside Timo Weiland

After a few seasons of feminine frocks, we’re starting to see a lot more tough-girl edge on the streets. This New York maven has a modern rocker vibe, thanks to her graphic tee and wide-brim hat. And, I have to admit, I am super jealous of those leather skinnies that show off her killer legs!

Street Report: Sleek and Chic Outside Richard Chai

Shearling is having a major fashion moment this season, and I love the modern cut of this jacket. Sleek and chic, this show-goer has struck the perfect balance of texture and print. Her simple palette and statement accessories make this outfit a winter win!

Street Report: Tough & Girly Outside Candela

This lovely lass is working the rock star princess look! While she keeps her look sweet and girly with voluminous tulle and a perfect coiffe, her modern biker coat and printed tee add some rock ‘n’ roll edge. I love the mix of genres—as well as her brave commitment to fashion in the face of sub-freezing temperatures!

Street Report: Adorably Quirky at Timo Weiland

Winter is in full force here in NYC, so cozy layers and accessories are an absolute must! The adorable Ella has a great mix of sleek wool, sweet separates, and quirky accessories. It’s great to see so much color on the streets during these gloomy months, and her beaded collar adds just the right amount of sparkle. I think this might be the chicest a fur trapper hat has ever looked!

Street Report: Sporty Graphics Outside Tadashi Shoji

Start your engines, because the motocross trend is speeding into winter wear! I love this edgy sportswear take on the tough biker babe look. The black-and-white palette creates clean, modern contrast and makes her bright accessories pop. High-end sweatshirts (an oxymoron, I know!) have been rising in popularity lately, and hers is fantastico!

Street Report: Autumn Palette at Giambattista Valli

I adore orange. In fact, it’s my favorite color–followed closely by red–so it’s no wonder that I’m obsessed with this look.

This beautiful brunette is striking and looks effortlessly cool. From her draped coat to her clean clutch, this fiery look is my new autumnal inspiration!

Street Report: Metallic Jacket at Céline

The Céline show was absolute mayhem. There were so many stunningly stylish people crammed into one small courtyard, it was hard to know where to shoot!

This lovely lady’s metallic paisley blazer caught my eye in a brief moment of bright sunshine. As we’ve mentioned before, metallics are having a moment, and I love this chic and subtly sexy pairing.

Street Report: Perfect Layers at Costume Nationale

This ensemble was perfect for the transitional Parisian weather today. Layers are a must in fickle weather, and I am all about chunky, soft knits. This look has a preppy-lady vibe, but the print and palette keep things modern.

I’m loving the full silhouette and, of course, those amazing rose gold and turquoise pumps!
