Outside the busy tents of fashion week is where the real show takes place: on the streets. In the same manner that we hype up what goes down the runway, the outfits that magazine editors, bloggers, and celebrities wear are just as worthy of the spotlight as the designers’ new collections. Here, we give you a sampling of the many looks we’ve been double-tapping on all season long.
Natalie Hartley, Fashion Director at Glamour
Kicking off London Fashion Week, Natalie pairs a classic striped button-down from JW Anderson with faded Levis jeans. The twist: she wears her shirt backwards. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.
Vanessa Hong, Blogger, The Haute Pursuit
The trick to culottes is finding a pair that ends midway through your calves. Vanessa plays up her long and lean frame by choosing a tapered pair and wears it with a relaxed tailored top with a long armhole that evens out her proportions.
Carmen Hamilton, Blogger, Chronicles of Her
A quick styling trick to add color to a monotonous palette and a restrained silhouette is by adding bold details that immediately catch one’s attention. For this outfit, it’s the thick Opening Ceremony choker that gave her look a strong impact.
Natalie Cantell, Contributing editor at Vogue Australia
This season, wearing lace has gone thick and heavy. Gone are the days when thin gauzy floral embroideries dominated the style department. Nowadays, we welcome bigger patterns with heavier needlework.
Pernille Teisbaek, Stylist
Give your favorite button-down a feminine touch with bishop sleeves and oversized bow fastening below the collar.
Hanne Gaby Odiele, Model
The new model-off-duty uniform consists of boyish shorts paired with oversized sweater and chunky platform boots worthy of a Spice Girl. It’s just the right mix of tomboy for the anti-girl girl.
Kimberly Jenneskens, Designer
Peplum tops are back! And this time, they’ve been trimmed down. If you plan on going all-out girly with a long-slitted skirt, balance out the sugar level by wearing men's sandals instead.
Liz Uy, Stylist
Wear a skirt in contrasting colors or prints over a longer dress to add dimension to your look. It’s one way of disguising your pieces if you’re planning a quick day-to-night change.
Pandora Skyes, Fashion Features Editor at The Sunday Times Style and Leandra Medine, blogger, The Man Repeller
Borrow notes from the Edwardian era and give it an edgy spin by wearing high necklines and caped collars with mom jeans and flares.
Elena Psalti, Fashion Editor at Dapper Dan
Bows are the “it” detail of the season making appearances everywhere from necklines to waist clinchers.
Anya Ziourova, Stylist
The statement earring remains to be the go-to accessory of front row fixtures, referencing style statements from the ‘80s with shoulder-grazing baubles.
