London Fashion Week Street Style


Maybe it’s London’s vibrant punk scene or perhaps the moody fog off the Thames, either way grunge is having a bit of a moment at London Fashion Week (in a good 90s chic kind of way).  90s trends have been rearing their head for the past few seasons (i.e. neon, destroyed cuffed denim, crop tops, oversized sweatshirts, sneakers…the list goes on) but never before have they seemed this relevant.  From leather moto jackets and florals to oversized everything and acetate mirrored sunglasses, this roundup could pass as easily for 1995 as 2014.

Color Crush: Highlighter Yellow

Can’t get enough of this cheerful hue and here’s why: it’s surprisingly versatile (pair w/ blues, neutrals, lavender, grey, black…the list goes on) and not only will it brighten your look, it will brighten your mood too!  Seriously.  Give it a try…

Some neon hued numbers I’m coveting: this Topshop crochet dress and this shift dress from the Banana/Milly collaboration.

Happy Friday!

Look of the Day: Mint + Stripes


Bam.  Elisa Nalin always nails it with her bright color pairings and mix of textures.  Mint is also perfect for spring, especially when you long for summer brights but winter just won’t seem to go away (I’m talking to you Chicago!).

Get the Look: 

UO Pleated Chiffon Mini in Mint or  BCBG Pleat Skirt / J.Crew Neon Stripe Sweater or Maykool Pink Stripe Sweater or Autumn Cashmere Mesh Stripe Sweater/ J.Crew Keeper Chambray Shirt or Madewell Perfect Chambray Shirt

Tough Chic


Stunning!  A tough moto jacket is the perfect counterpart to an otherwise feminine look–especially when paired with spring florals, pastels or white (my fave).  Dress it up with lace up pumps as above or take a cue from Veronika Heilbrunner (below) and add some colorful sneaks. Either way, these ladies know how it’s done!

imageFor a similar look try Vince’s Vintage Leather Jacket (splurge).  Two more affordable options are the Oasis Slash Leather Biker Jacket ($296) and the ASOS Leather Biker Jacket ($169).  This PU Quilted Biker Jacket is a steal at $88.00.

On the Street: NY Fashion Week

Teen Vogue’s Jane Keltner de Valle in Jason Wu.

I’m DYING over this floral blouse on Taylor Tomasi Hill.

And this bold yellow midi skirt… yes, please.

Loving these wide leg stunners on Teen Vogue’s Sierra Tishgart.

Look of the Day: Shiona Turini

Teen Vogue accessories director Shiona Turini is known for her sartorial street smarts.  Here, she rocks a mixed media midi skirt with a sleeveless shirt.  A great combo for hot summer days.  For a similar look, try this geo print skirt from Tibi (now on sale!) and pair it with a sleeveless Equipment blouse and slingback sandals.  Add some sunnies, bangles, and a colorblock satchel.

More White on White

Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon demonstrates how white on white can be soft and feminine but also sophisticated with a smidge of edge.  The feminine lace top and sorbet hued accessories work with the layered necklaces and clean lines of the blazer and denim.   Love it all.
