Fashion Month Street Style

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Fashion Month Street Style

Another fashion month has come and gone! Thanks to Vogue and street style photographer Phil Oh I have been flicking through street style photos from Paris, Milan, London, and New York. The pictures really help me gather inspiration on what to wear for the current season. I've rounded up some of my favorite looks and the trends I noticed while keeping an eye out for my favorite street style stars such as Sarah Harris of British Vogue and Julie Pelipas of Vogue Ukraine.

PHILOPHILES

'Philophiles' is a term coined for someone that was obsessed with Phoebe Philo and her work at Celine. During Paris Fashion Week fans gathered in their favorite Celine pieces in honor of the designer as she left the fashion house last season. Key points include oversized silhouettes, menswear, and chunky knitwear. 

BROWN DOWN

Brown is a huge color for this fall/winter season and many incorporated the color into their outfits for fashion week. 

THE NEW MINIMALISM

The new minimalism includes hardly any color and simplistic silhouettes. 

FAIRY-TALE FROCKS

The puffier the sleeve and the longer the dress, the better!

ANIMAL PRINT

Another huge trend this season, but it was mostly seen as footwear on the streets of the fashion capitals!

MENSWEAR

One of my favorite trends because I love throwing on a blazer, neutral tones, and a comfy pair of loafers!

RED HOT

If brown is too dull for you, go for a punchy red color to spice up your wardrobe!

What's Old is New

What's Old is New
I've always been fascinated by the past and I think it really translates into the things I wear. A lot of my clothes were once my mother's, so majority of my wardrobe isn't even from this century. As I've gotten older, my obsession with older pieces has only grown. Now I find myself wondering through antique stores looking for the oldest thing I can find.
These are some of my favorite pieces either handed down from my mother's closet, from bargaining at flea markets or just browsing antique stores.

These were once my mom's. They're from the 90s. They are one of my favorite, favorite pants that I own. They're so flattering and they remind me of something Brigitte Bardot would wear.

This next piece, I found in an antique store a couple of weeks ago. I'm not quite sure how to tell if this is actually real, but it's so pretty that I wouldn't mind if it was a faux, but this is supposedly a Givenchy Tea set... or part of a set.

  
It's so glamorous and just makes me feel like I'm sipping tea in an old Parisian cafe.

Not too long ago, I wondered into a bookstore that was filled with priceless, old classic novels.
I found an old collection of Edgar Allen Poe stories from the 1920's. The perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit.


I got this classic, trench at a flea market that lines Lincoln Road every other Sunday during the fall. Last year, the seller tried to convince me it was a Chloe trench. Yes, it had a Chloe tag on it, but it was a very fake looking tag. I didn't want it because it was a "Chloe" coat, I wanted it because I liked it. So I snagged it for less than $40.

And lastly, another hand-me-down from my mother. This fluffy sweater reminds me of a young Mick Jagger in his cream sweater and plaid trousers.

Autumn 2018 Trends

Autumn 2018 Trends

It's October and autumn is in full swing! Although it may not feel like it in Miami, in other parts of the world it's sweater weather and it's time to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Say goodbye to pastels and color and say hello to dark neutral tones, thick textures,  and animal prints. I'm always excited for the autumn dressing and this year there are five main trends:

1. CROC ACCESSORIES

Take accessories from the 90's such as a slingback heel or a small over the shoulder handbag, and add croc to it and you have this seasons must-have trend!

2. BROWN

The color brown was seen all over the runways for the A/W '18 season. Try it in small doses with a brown sweater or a handbag, or go all out in a brown coat or a full on maxi dress. 

3. SNAKE SKIN PRINT

Animal print in general is a key trend this season, but snake skin is really having a moment.

4. STRAPPY HEELS

Another trend that was more popular in the 90's and early 2000's, the strappy sandal. Just watch any episode of Sex and the City and you'll see that this type of shoe was popular and now it's being portrayed in a modern way.

5. CONTRAST STITCHING

I love this trend and have my eye on a few pieces at Zara that incorporate it. It's also very subtle so it will be a good piece to have for upcoming years without going out of style!

Chanel Spring 2019

Chanel Spring 2019

Once again, Karl Lagerfeld has created a beautiful collection. I always know that the Chanel collection will never disappoint. The clothes are always chic and exactly how you would imagine the coolest of French girls to dress. The beauty and hair simple, beautiful and classic. And you can't forget the atmosphere! Lagerfeld once again went above and beyond. 

The Spring 2019 Ready to Wear collection was set at the beach... with what looks like actual sand and water as a runway. 

The clothes effortlessly cool and beach ready... and I love anything that is ocean themed. 

Sun hats and bare feet worn along with chic tweeds, black A-line dresses and even some 80s inspired pieces pretty much sums up this collection. 
 


It's kind of how you imagined you dress if you were on vacation... on a yacht ... in the south of France.
