London Fashion Week Spring 2019: The Trends

London’s designers were in an extravagant mood for spring; Halpern, Matty Bovan and Mary Katrantzou were among those who accented their collections with sparkly, high-shine sequins, added crafty fringes on the hems of skirts and accessorized their looks with dramatic tulle veils. There was also a focus on revisiting and reworking classics, such as the Eighties power suit — as seen on Chalayan’s deconstructed take on blazers — and the quintessentially British trench. And speaking of British traditions: designers didn’t lose their sense of humor printing provocative slogans on T-shirts and sweatshirts in true punk fashion. Riccardo Tisci, who made his much-awaited debut at Burberry this season, embellished the brand’s signature trenches with silky scarves while also poking fun at his famous Givenchy Bambi print.

Trends Converge Amid Coed Shows, ‘Fluid’ Fashions

PARIS — Fashion is having a his-and-hers moment. With a phalanx of influential brands including Gucci, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Saint Laurent headlining the momentum to coed shows, men’s and women’s collections are becoming mirror reflections of one another.
Also driving the convergence is the streetwear trend gripping the industry, plus the open mind-set of younger generations coming of age in a socio-political climate where more and more open discussions are taking place around gender boundaries.
According to Carlo Capasa, president of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, the coed movement confirms “fashion’s ability to catch, codify and [reflect] the most radical social and cultural changes.”
“Setting aside gender stereotypes and breaking boundaries between the masculine and feminine, it becomes fluid,” he said.
For Emma McClendon, associate curator of costume at The Museum at FIT, the Seventies — an era that saw a crossing over of fits and styles across genders, with women wearing pants en masse for the first time and men wearing platforms — was possibly the only other time in modern history that men’s and women’s fashions have so resembled each other. “And now I’m really struck by how close they are, in all parts of the market, whether we’re looking at

Happy Fall Trends You Can Actually Wear

I’ve held out as long as I could, but the transitional weather is here and the leaves are threatening to change. With that, I’m forced to retire my strappy sandals, beachy nail polishes and beloved summer handbags, and officially start moving towards fall fashion, even if we’re in that in-between phase of being overly hot one day and chilly the next.

Having just recently prepped and presented fall fashion tips for several book signing events, I realize for the average Jill just how many trends are out there to digest: making sense of it all can be overwhelming. (As if getting everything organized and on schedule this time of year wasn’t work enough! Like my family’s dinner tonight for example.)

Akin to my theory of really loving each piece of clothing that you own and making every accessory work to empower you and make you stand out, here’s a roundup of “happy” fall trends that should make you smile for ease of style or spunk of character or simple wear-ability.

CAPES
Cozy capes are stealing the spotlight when it comes to outerwear. Look for fun closures, slitted sleeves and streamlined pockets.

2015-10-02-1443805238-5346642-IvoryThreeButtonCape.jpg

Even kids can get in on the action with seasonal plaid prints that will make them look dapper, like a mini Sherlock Holmes!

2015-10-02-1443805294-8497253-NavyPlaidCapeJacketInfantToddlerGirls.jpg

BOHO
Richly layered ensembles were the focus of many designers’ collections, including Alberta Ferretti and Erdem. You can capture the bohemian vibe with an embroidered swing dress and layer with a sweater or jacket.

2015-10-02-1443805340-8837629-RedBorderSwingMidiDress.jpg

MIDI BOOTS
Taller than an ankle boot yet below the knee, the midi is the talk of the season among editors for offering a fresh, new boot silhouette.

2015-10-02-1443805842-3770088-BlackBuckleBootie.jpg

FRINGED…EVERYTHING
Here’s a trend that some write off for only the youthful, but while fringe detailing may be frisky, it can also be subtly elegant. Look for the visual movement and texture it brings to clothing.

2015-10-02-1443805476-8830828-IvoryFringeOpenCardigan.jpg

2015-10-02-1443805514-7217892-GraySouthwestFringeBoot.jpg

FLOPPY HATS
Unlike the knitted caps we’ll need during winter to keep our heads warm, opt for a floppy hat now for the perfect, stylish topper.

2015-10-02-1443805610-9976809-BlackStudWoolFloppyHat.jpg

SLEEK MINIMALISM
For a straightforward look for work or play, a neutral, streamlined dress gets the job done and speaks of quiet luxury.

2015-10-02-1443805654-4144324-CharcoalFitFlareDress.jpg

FAUX FUR
If an entire luxurious, faux fur coat is not your speed, look for trims on cuffs and collars.

2015-10-02-1443805752-3471403-CreamFauxFurJacket.jpg

SUEDE BOOTS
The rich, soft look of suede is back, and while doing so consider boots in an unexpected color to spice up your footwear. You’ll note more stacked and wider heels this season too.

2015-10-02-1443805898-4953883-BurgundySaraniOvertheKneeBoot.jpg

BLACK & WHITE
While an evergreen trend, black-and-white patterns like this houndstooth are simply getting bolder and more defined–almost to the point of looking mod.

Honey, I Shrunk the Saint Laurent! 10 Adorably Chic Kids Looks Inspired by Fall’s Top Runway Trends

Photo: Corbis

Traditionally, mommy-and-me dressing has existed somewhere on the sidelines of fashion, in a pink-hued world of sugar and spice, where everything is frilly and matchy-matchy. Which is sweet and all, but where’s the fun? And variety? Not every little girl wants to dress like a princess each morning, as North West, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, and Suri Cruise can attest.

Dolce & Gabbana, whose Fall collection celebrated motherhood, isn’t alone in giving the throwback approach to dressing la familia a rethink. “It’s never too early to play with fashion,” says Assistant Market Editor Anny Choi, who selected looks from the Fall collections to inspire a guide to the season which has the major trends—from the neo-boho look at Burberry Prorsum to Loewe’s shinny metallics—covered for kids. Far from being copycat looks, these clothes are maximally chic while being totally age-appropriate, too. “The trick,” Choi explains, “is putting all the pieces together to make a statement.

Are Miley Cyrus’s VMA Outfits Actually a Harbinger of Fashion Trends to Come?

We all knew what to expect from Miley Cyrus’s VMA ensembles: outrageous colors, even more audacious cuts, and, of course, plenty of nudity. All that—and then some—came to pass at last night’s ceremony. As the host, she kicked off the evening in a body harness by Atelier Versace, and later wore other looks by the house, as well as pieces by Prada, The Blonds, and Bcalla. The thing VMA viewers are buzzing over today is the sheer nakedness of it all—one of Cyrus’s breasts actually made it into the broadcast, after all. But perhaps the real conversation—in fashion, at least—should be about the style of the clothing the pop singer-cum-phenom wore.

Not only did Cyrus woo high-fashion brands to craft playful outfits to her specifications, but she also sported two Courrèges pieces, both introduced by André Courrèges in his mid-century heyday. She accessorized a plastic, bubble-covered dress with Courrèges sunglasses and added an orange Courrèges visor to a two-piece outfit made to look like eyes and lips. Celebs mining fashion archives is none too new, but the decision of Cyrus and her stylist, Simone Harouche, to look to Courrèges couldn’t be more timely. The house is about to undergo a revival at the hands of Arnaud Vaillant and Sébastien Meyer, the young duo behind the LVMH Prize–nominated Coperni Femme. Does this mean that she’ll make an appearance at their debut Spring 2016 presentation in Paris? You never know.

Hot Off the Runway: Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall

If you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion for fall, don’t look to shop windows, look to the future! As I often tell my clients, if you see it in stores, it’s already out, which is why I keep an eye on global trend forecasts. This week at MAGIC, the semiannual fashion trade show in Las Vegas, I soaked up the latest in men’s and women’s lifestyle and apparel trends, color trends, and much, much more.

In a seminar led by Melissa Moylan, Creative Director of Womenswear at FashionSnoops (a trend forecasting agency), I got the scoop on global trends for gals next year (fall/winter ’16-17). So if you’re a buyer, a designer, or a forward-thinking fashionista, read on! FashionSnoops identified four major up-and-coming trend stories for fall: Method + Madness, Weekender, Raven, and Varsity Daze. And while each of these distinct trends is uniquely inspired, they do share some common elements–colors, fabrics, silhouettes, and details–you can look out for regardless of your affinity for any particular trend.

COLOR

Hues predicted to be popular for winter come from an earthy and warm, yet bold, color palette. Neutrals such as Ivory, Biscuit, Flax, Camel, Toffee, and Dust Grey form a supple base for the richer, more vibrant colors in the Fall ’16 color story.

Vintage hues and jewel tones also play an important role across global trend forecasts with colors like Forest, Navy, Plum, Crimson, Scarlet Fever (a bright, orange-based red) and Roast (a chocolatey espresso brown) laying a foundation of deep undertones.

Mid-tones and accent colors include Olive, Pea, Marigold, Tangerine, Cyan, Teal, and Indigo, along with my personal favorites (for their freshness): Baby Blue, Rose Taupe, Bronze, and Lavender Grey.

SILHOUETTE

The key silhouettes to look out for in ladies’ fall fashion are A-line skirts and dresses (in both mid-lengths and floor dusters), culottes, and wide-leg pants. Also predicted to turn heads are turtlenecks and mock turtlenecks, as well as oversized sweaters, blanket coats, and floor-length overcoats.

FABRIC

According to the forecast, textiles such as boiled and compressed wools, twills, tweeds, and chunky knits will keep you both stylish and warm when the weather start to cool. On the softer side, sheer satin, chiffon, cozy cashmere, and plush, teddy-bear-like fabrics (think: wearable Ted) will be white-hot for winter.

DETAILS & ACCESSORIES

Already dangling in your favorite boutiques, suede fringe will continue to play a prominent role in apparel and accessories. (Ladies, it’s time to let your inner cowgirl lose!) Lace and laser cut-outs are two details also forecasted to remain strong. Keep an eye out for vintage-y patches and appliqués; think old-school letterman jackets and sweaters, along with team pennants and athletic patches. In a nod to handicraft, big buttons, quilting, and patchwork will also be popular, while updated ditsies, graphics, and photography will spice up patterns and prints. As for footwear, the wedge bootie is predicted to give your seasonal style a kick!

So if you want your winter wardrobe to weather more than just one season–while still being on the forefront of fashion–start stocking your closet now with vintage-inspired colors and details; cozy, oversized knits; and cowgirl-meets-Little-House-on-the-Prairie fabrics and accessories.

Fall Trends For The Home, Beauty, Fashion And Food

The fall season is just around the corner! In a few more weeks the weather will start to change, time for cozy sweaters and hot chocolate, changing leaves and all the other amazing things that the season brings every year.

It also means a crop of new trends across the lifestyle category. Whether you’re a foodie, fashion lover, beauty junkie or are planning an update to any space or spot at home, there are plenty of fresh ideas and new products for fall this year.

With fashion, color trends are at long last shifting from the bright and bold and soft pastel to a muted mix that lands a bit in between. Mustard yellow, toned down orange, and navy blue, along with what’s already arrived in full force, olive green. You don’t need to over-invest in a new wardrobe — just add a piece or two in. Select based on your existing items — for example, if you’ve got a ton of statement or pastel pink from past seasons, olive green or navy can pair well with it. Neutral tones will be back again but as a trend this color palette is starting to wane. Expect to see a lot of blush tones once more this season.

In terms of items, the heel has at long last shaken off the stiletto and sky high for chunkier, block styles and short kitten heels. It’ll still be a great year for flats of all kinds as well — the chunky loafer will be the most popular along with summer’s favorite, the pointed toe. The moto jacket is also at long last starting to transition out. Polished coats of all kinds will be the replacement, particularly the trench. Play with the trend with a chic print versus a solid, though there will be plenty of solid colors, too. Denim’s also getting an update — not just in the form of tops, skirts, etc. but jeans are loosening up again this season. Wide leg is the fresh look, boot cut and flares returning. In terms of accessories, structured bags, patchwork leather and suede are on trend this season. Suede is also the season’s update to leather — faux suede today is often as good as the real deal for those looking for vegan or budget friendly.

With food, there is a resurgence of timeless American classics at the moment — doughnuts, ice cream, etc., reinvented with funky flavors and unexpected combinations. Waffles are also trending, and soups of all kinds will be coming back in a big way — this time around with interesting combinations like chicken and lime, heirloom tomato, and other fresh takes on the classics. Interesting water infusions are also very popular — sage, rosemary, and other unique blends. The juice trend is hanging around as well, though with eye-popping prices it seems it might be waning a bit. It’s still a favorite here.

In the home, bold, bright pink is carrying along into fall. It can be in the form of a simple, single wall painted in the color, or all the walls for a more statement look. The same is present with furniture and accessories or decor items — one pop piece, or a bunch combined. Black walls continue to linger, though it’s shifting to navy a bit as the fall season rolls around. Lilac is trending. In terms of furniture, mid century and modern styles are starting to shift to softer, rounder edges and lines, cozier furniture, etc. Old and new mixed together continues to be popular.

There isn’t a new season without new beauty trends! For fall this year, olive green is also in the mix — on the nails, or the eyes. Blue tones of all kinds for the eyes, sheer white for the nails. Pop hair colors are big again, though this may be the peak season for the look. Braids are returning, this time a bit more polished than the loose braid trends of the past, and hair accessories (clips, barrettes, headbands, etc.) are back in a big way. For the lips, bright pink and reds are shifting to orange tones, darker colors, etc.

Just in Time for New School Year, Teen Choice to Set Hair Trends

You can already hear the high-pitched squeals! Teen Choice Awards are this weekend and we’re sure to see a train of beautiful trend-setting hair for a massive audience of eager young fashion mavens heading back to school.

Here are just a handful of the nominees. I loved their hair styles and can’t wait to see what these and other celebs bring to the red carpets leading into the Galen Center in Los Angeles on Sunday.

If there is one word to describe the “look” we’ve seen recently among the truly young and restless teens it is “variety” — cuts and color all over the place, but with lots of tailored individuality. Lea Michele is a perfect example. Nominated for a Teen Choice Award as a TV comedy actress, this Glee star has been wearing her hair in long layers with caramel highlights and soft bangs that draw attention to her distinctive eyes.

Lucy Hale does a lot of long brown layered wavy hair, and for good reason. She looks fantastic. She’s also done a ponytail with a deep side part and soft, face-framing waves, another great look for her. Incredibly talented Hale is nominated for a Teen Choice Award for her work in Pretty Little Liars as a TV actress in the drama/action adventure category.

Zendaya has done just about everything with her hair, including a layered bob with heavy bangs. Her deep, rich, dark brown color brings out her features beautifully. She’s up for Teen Choice award for TV actress in a comedy for her adorable, heart-throb role in Disney’s KC Undercover.

Can you believe how cool Shailene Woodley looks in a slick-back pixie? She’s nominated for a Teen Choice award for her gripping performance in the blockbuster Insurgent.

Demi Lovato has been wearing a deep side part, giving her hair that great asymmetrical look to frame her beautiful features. She’s been nominated for a Teen Choice female summer music star award. If there is one thing that has been consistent overall it is a trend of soft colors with subtle transitions.

Always, there are exceptions, but even in the new move toward silver hair with vibrant colors, a lot of the transitions are pretty soft and cool, not abrupt. I’m betting, and hoping, we see some color at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday. Maybe a new trend will emerge.

Cheers to the kids! Love change!

Why the End of Trends Is Great for Ethical Fashion and Terrible for Fast Fashion

One of the main drivers of the incredibly wasteful (some would say killer) fast-fashion business has been trends. I mean, if you are unconscious of the social and environmental impacts of supercheap clothes and just want to keep up with what’s new and hot, the simplest solution is to buy a couple haul’s worth of cheap, not-made-to-last clothes each season and toss them when the trends change.

But interestingly, we are now entering an era (fashion insiders would say that it has been going on for a few seasons now) where trends just don’t dominate like they used to. We are more free than ever to figure out what works for us, our lifestyles and our bodies.

And that means that fast fashion is no longer necessary.

I’ve always been a slave to 70s cuts (they suit my personality, and my shape), but when I was younger, I had to wait for the “boho” look to come and go, and I can’t tell you how bummed I was when skinny pants became the thing. But now you can log onto almost any fashion site and find both skinny jeans and bellbottoms for sale right next to each other!

2015-07-30-1438293836-8057064-ScreenShot20150729at4.57.42PM.png

This ditching of trends means we can start investing in great pieces that flatter us year in and year out (or better yet, get our clothes tailored! I predict perfect fitting clothes will be the new black in coming years.) And support businesses who are making clothes ethically.

We don’t need fast fashion, and its earth-poisoning, people-abusing ways if we get to dress in the way that’s best suited to who we are instead of following trends that mean you wear something once and toss it.

This is especially true because we’re no longer limited to clothes on offer at the local mall or downtown, so our style isn’t limited in that way, either. Now you find such an incredible variety of wares online, from mainstream fashion retailers to higher-end fashion shops, to boutiques that fit every fancy.

2015-07-30-1438295014-6356116-ScreenShot20150730at3.22.46PM.png

For example, I like my clothes ethical, edgy and not super-girly but classically feminine, so I love Beklina (above), Kaight and A Boy Named Sue and I do the majority of my shopping online at those shops, stopping by every month or so to see what’s new.

2015-07-30-1438293882-29904-ScreenShot20150729at5.06.29PM.png

Eshakti offers customized clothing, so if you like a dress, you can get the shorter version of it, or one with capped sleeves so you can wear it to work. Freaking brilliant, and they offer a genuine range of sizes.

2015-07-30-1438294318-4697184-ScreenShot20150730at3.11.06PM.png

Speaking of which, if you’re plus-sized, you have virtual shops that offer genuinely cool clothes like Modcloth, ASOS Curve and Ideeli .

2015-07-30-1438294115-6279752-ScreenShot20150729at5.14.41PM.png

There is literally something for everyone. Want to share quirky, made-in-san-francisco clothes with your guy? Betabrand offers tons of crossover pieces; I share the above Mary-Go-Round pants with my partner and we BOTH get compliments.

And forget it if you like vintage pieces; I could spend days trolling my favorite vintage shops on Etsy — growing up I only had my grandma’s closet and my local Salvation Army.

My wardrobe is actually something I now LOVE; because I only buy pieces that I adore, because many of my clothes are 5 or more years old, and I know exactly how to work them and because I no longer have to deal with trends.

It makes it SO much easier to get dressed in the morning when you actually like your clothes and aren’t trying to follow trends.

How to Nail the Skater and Surfer Trends for Summer

Photo: Todd Glaser

If you’re hoping to take the carefree vibe of summer into full force, there’s no better place to start than by referencing the gnarly, devil-may-care ensembles of skate and surf icons. Take it from long-locked surfer Rob Machado who keeps it lean in a slick wetsuit, or skateboarder Chad Muska, who puts a stylish spin on his off-duty look with wide-brim toppers and high-tops. For those who ride more on the wild side, skateboarder Brandon Szafranski packs a punch with neon-dotted duds and over-the-top embellished jackets. But if you veer more into the laid-back sphere, surfer Dane Reynolds puts a grunge twist on the West Coast beachcomber with perfectly on-trend plaid windbreakers and distressed tees. And whatever you choose, feel free to take your look to the next level and accessorize with a nifty skateboard or surfboard and get to grinding and shredding. Or just, you know, look like it.

As the 2015 wedding season gets underway, couples across the country are spending more money than ever to make their ceremonies memorable and fun. Here are the most popular trends you can expect to see at weddings this year:

  • GoPro attached to priest
  • Saving money by burdening a friend with the responsibility of officiating ceremony
  • Jumbo shrimp boutonnieres
  • Oppressive patriarchal foundations of tradition of marriage obscured by quirky reception decor
  • Stenographers at each table to transcribe guests’ conversations for posterity

News: Matt Lauer Waits In Parking Garage For Anonymous Source On Parenting Trends

NEW YORK—Nervously checking his watch and glancing around the desolate underground parking garage in anticipation, The Today Show host Matt Lauer was reportedly waiting for an anonymous source with inside knowledge of the latest parenting trends during the early morning hours Thursday.

Reports indicate that Lauer had planned a secret meeting at 2 a.m. with his unidentified parenting source in the lowest level of a parking facility on East 50th Street, where on several previous occasions he had received classified information on half-birthday parties, breastfeeding selfies, and multilingual nannies.

“She’s late,” said Lauer, looking around the dimly lit garage for the anonymous informant known only by the pseudonym “Crafty Mom,” who had reportedly provided him with vital details about sneaking vegetables into a child’s diet by encouraging them to use peppers and tomato slices to make their own smiley-face miniature pizzas. “I need to know if …

The Best 2015 Met Gala Red-Carpet Trends

Photo: Getty Images (2)

The stars have had their night at the museum, and the red carpet is rolled up for now, but if this year’s gala is anything to go by, then the fashion moments are likely to reverberate into tomorrow morning and beyond. While many touched on the theme, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” only a few embraced a larger-than-life idea of chinoiserie. One stylish attendee who took cues from the impressive Ming-floral vase sculpture in the Met’s great hall? Ivanka Trump whose exaggerated train mimicked the iconic blue and white ceramics.

Ultimately the majority of guests channeled the aesthetic in a less literal way, by wearing red, and it came in every shade imaginable; scarlet, auburn, and vivid ruby. Amal Clooney even managed to bring some of the grandeur of last year’s Charles James theme with her Maison Margiela couture look.

The best floral motifs of the night were elegant and restrained, like those worn by Bee Shaffer (hers was by Alexander McQueen) and Marissa Mayer. Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, and Gigi Hadid led the way for old-world glamour in glittering body-skimming dresses, and Sienna Miller showed that tomboys can do sparkles too in her embellished trouser suit.

And speaking of wearing the pants, pajama dressing took on a new life thanks to Jenna Lyons, and Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School. Elsewhere, Liya Kebede and Diane Kruger eschewed diaphanous dresses for trousers, as did Lady Gaga. Naturally the rule-breaking pop star put her own spin on the idea though, finishing off her look with a lattice-like cape. And she wasn’t the only one to go the superheroine route: Janelle Monáe, Lisa Airan, and Hannah Bagshawe wore capes as a dramatic alternative to the straightforward floor-length gown.

Some of the most daring red-carpet wins of the night alluded to the skin in unexpected ways. Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian West both glided in wearing frothy, ethereal, and undeniably sexy confections that relied on carefully placed sequins and feathers—Givenchy and Roberto Cavalli by Peter Dundas respectively. In a gorgeous Calvin Klein Collection dress that had intricate lacing up the side, Kendall Jenner showed that the very notion of a plunging neckline might have shifted for good.

Tackling One of Spring’s Most Surprisingly Flattering Trends

Photographed by Steven Klein, Vogue, August 2007

I can’t really trace where my aversion to flared jeans began. And it’s not jean-specific, really, so much as pant-specific, though, come to think of it, I don’t own a lot of flared-hem-anythings. Straight and sleek and long, that’s me! (Or straight and sleek and very, very short, if I’m honest, but that’s another story.) Flares are back from the seventies with a vengeance, though, trouncing down the runways and on the streets on the legs of editors, bloggers, and god knows who else. Men don’t seem to like them, particularly, though they’re hard-pressed to explain exactly why. “I like to see a woman’s leg,” says my long-suffering boyfriend, when pushed. (My leg, of course, is what he means by that, right?) And to that end, all that extra fabric, rippling about the ankle, taunting my young golden retriever, who so, so desperately loves to catch a hem in his teeth and pull. Why bother?

 

 

Well, because they’re in, my friends, and also, the chances are that you haven’t actually given them a fair shake. I see you out there, rolling your eyes. Costumey, you’re thinking. Dumb. Leave me and my worn-out skinnies alone. Well, I won’t. Because if I do nothing but convince you, at this exact moment, to try a pair of flared jeans this season, I will have done my job. Because look here a second, skinny jeans are swell! We all know that. But they’re also kind of . . . boring. I mean, they’re very versatile—any look! Any shoe! Any top!—and thanks to modern fabrics, quite comfortable, and really very easy. Easy to the point of invisibility, really. It’s the legging of the denim world. Which is fine, I swear. But would you really be here, reading this, if you wanted to spend your whole life in leggings? I didn’t think so.

So how did I go from flared-averse to evangelist? Because, um, I actually tried them. At the behest of Vogue.com’s beloved Market Editor and denim expert Kelly Connor, I slid into a few pairs, and suddenly my legs were longer, my waist was slimmer, and I actually looked dressed. And like that, I got it. Chloe Lonsdale, founder and chief creative officer of MiH Jeans (whose Marrakesh flare jean predates this current trend and will long outlast it, for its utterly flattering and perennially Jane Birkin–perfect silhouette), was not exactly surprised. “When you have the cut of a flare right—even if you don’t like flares and you think you will never ever wear a pair—you cannot deny that you look great,” said Lonsdale. “It makes your legs look like they come from under your arms, it’s super slimming, super leg-lengthening, and you just feel great in them. It gives you a sense of something that you don’t get from a skinny jean.” There’s something intentional to it, in other words, a look that you’re after. Think of it this way: If your skinnies are made to blend in, flares are made to stand out. Sure, some styling tricks are required: You have to be aware of your waist (no overly long tops), and a heel really takes the leg-lengthening aspect to exponential heights (though Lonsdale prefers to wear hers with Converse for an ineffably cool, overtly confident effect). But when it comes down to it, spring 2015’s denim trend is not about laziness, or slumping around in your jegging alternatives: It’s about dressing like you mean it. And I’m starting to think that means a flare. So do yourself a favor and try it. The smart money’s on you never looking back.

Here, five great pairs to start the revolution.

5 Takes on the Most Figure-Flattering Trends from Spring

Karlie Kloss by Craig McDean

It seems that—fingers crossed—here on the East Coast, the cold months (and their oversize sweaters, large, shapeless puffer coats, and legions of long underwear) are finally behind us. The good news: Spring is here! The bad: It’s not going to wait for you to slowly transition your wardrobe—or your waistline. The sartorial transition of seasons is a slow process that takes easing into, much like giving up your wintry comfy-cozies for some serious skin-baring (and the gym sessions that go with it). Enter the figure-flattering wardrobe that will lengthen legs and even out midsections and seamlessly take you into next season. From charming Empire-waisted frocks, to high-waisted jeans, here are the essentials to get you into a warm weather state of mind.

Amal Clooney Aces One of Spring’s Best Trends

Amal Clooney

We don’t know about you, but we’ve yet to tire of spring’s new pant length, the just-so crop as seen on Kendall Jenner, Victoria Beckham, and throughout the pages of our March and April issues. The kicky abridged hem gives any ensemble a fresh touch, makes limbs look practically endless, and lends the wearer the ability to show off sinfully chic shoes, whether they be boots, stilettos, or sneakers. But it was Amal Clooney who best demonstrated the length’s versatility this weekend in New York, proving that all it takes is a bit of pop to really ace the look. The creamy bell hem of Clooney’s effortlessly simple jumpsuit flows against her bronzed legs, while yellow Versace strappy sandals ground the look with a louche nod to the seventies. The finishing touch? An oversize menswear-inspired cardi jacket that looks pulled straight out of Love Story—and to that end, perhaps love really means never having to say you’re sorry . . . for nailing one of spring’s best trends.

Three Spring Trends Make Their Way From Runway to Tabletop

holding-runway-to-table

David Stark has planned hundreds of successful parties, penned five books about them, and could probably set a table with his eyes closed. Yet more than nineteen years into his career, Stark still delights in finding inspiration in unexpected places. Happily, he was game to take some time away from planning weddings and corporate events to dress up three tables in looks inspired by the spring runway. Whether layering pattern and texture for a luxe bohemian look, mixing gingham checks, or going bold with bright blossoms, Stark’s sense of play is always balanced by his obsession with quality. Here, he shares tips and inspiration for planning fashionable get togethers.

 

Luxe Bohemian

Dries Van Noten’s Eastern collection inspires a table setting in patterned and natural tones. “Whether culled from actual or imagined journeys all over the world, it’s the layering of textures, tones, and items of varying international provenance that give your table richness,” says Stark, who recommends black pillar candles of varying heights to light this exotic assemblage of embroidery, bamboo, glass, and china.

Gingham

Picnics aren’t the only place for playful gingham, as the spring runways proved. Whether perched on a blanket in the shade of a tree, or more formally seated at a table, there’s a way to take the check in a sophisticated direction. For starters, suggests Stark, “vary the size, scale, and color of your plaids.” Here, he’s shifted the scale by using contrasting gingham for tablecloth and napkins, and then added colored flatware and border-striped teacups that combine a casual look with superb quality.

Bold Florals

Romantic blooms have made way for brighter, bolder florals this spring. “Flirty and loud, these larger-scaled, vividly colored blooms make for an exotic garden table,” says Stark.

The Top 12 Accessories Trends for Fall 2015

accessories-trends-holding-R4

We’ve all heard that old line about accessories making or breaking a look, but nowhere was it proved as soundly as the runways of the fall 2015 shows. In New York, London, Milan, and Paris, nothing was catching our eye quite like all the extras. Here’s your guide to the top twelve trends to know about now, so you can start prepping your wardrobe for the seasons ahead. Consider it your Fashion Week cheat sheet.

 

A New Twist on a Classic

How’s this for pearls of wisdom? The once fussy country club staple was given new life at shows like Givenchy, where models’ faces boasted pearls from seemingly every plane; Chanel, where they looped over sheer, bow-tied blouses; Dolce & Gabbana, where they decorated demure updos; and Stella McCartney, where they took on a life of their own, twisted into contorted whirls, primed for takeoff.

 

Your New All-Terrain Vehicle

The lug sole has left the trails behind and is primed to hit the city sidewalks; toughening up patent leather ankle boots at Balenciaga, brogue detailed boots at Michael Kors, shearling-lined tall bikers at Coach, and rave-ready platforms at Alexander Wang.

 

Get a Grip

When it comes to the It bags for fall, all you need to do is a get a grip—on the nearest top-handled trunk at Louis Vuitton, front-flap bag at Giambattista Valli, or crocodile case, at Alexander McQueen, of course. The look was softer in shape at Prada, Marc Jacobs, and Christian Dior (and the latter two styles also boast a long shoulder strap for an easier sling over the shoulder), but the season’s message was all in the wrist: Keep your most stylish status symbol close at hand.

 

All in the Details

If you ever doubted the importance of the little things, well, let us set you straight: From Prada to Balenciaga, from Chanel to Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana, the emphasis was on all things shiny, pretty, and easily pinned, whether onto an elegant twisted updo or a party frock. Tuck a brooch into your ensemble for just the right amount of sparkle for the season ahead.

 

Crushing It

From Proenza Schouler’s croc-print monochrome satchel to The Row’s plump, friendly tote and Chanel’s suede sling-over-your-shoulder shopper, the new season’s carryall is hands-free, totally compressible, and very cuddly: Meet your new main squeeze.

 

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Look, you don’t have to go full Cruella de Vil (faux is always a possibility!), but you do need to know that next fall is all about a touch of fur. From the fuzzy-soled slip on loafers at Gucci to the plumed sleeves at Marc Jacobs, the smooth pony-skin boots at Derek Lam (or their wilder, snowstorm-ready counterparts at Fendi), the exaggerated pom-pom scarves at Céline—even the headphones at Dolce & Gabbana got in on the game.

 

Twinkle Toes

Whether it was handfuls of crystals, a sparkling coating of glitter, or shiny metal studs, shoes and boots stole the spotlight this season. And there were several unexpected renditions of the look to give Dorothy’s shiny Mary Janes a run for their money: At Emilio Pucci, slinky knee-high boots had a graphic energy, while Céline‘s wicker basket midi heels came finished with what looked like pearl-studded brooches.

 

Velvet Touch

Velvet has traditionally held a noble place in fashion history, worn by kings, queens, princes, and the like. It only makes sense that fall’s return to Victoriana would be grounded by a velvet shoe. At Alberta Ferretti, the red buckled shoe came with regal airs and graces, while at Givenchy and Dries Van Noten, sturdy ankle boots had a sophisticated coating.

 

On the Block

After a season of flats, designers looked to higher ground for fall, but thankfully without altogether abandoning the idea of comfort altogether. Measuring little more than two inches off the ground, the modish block heel came through at Miu Miu, Calvin Klein Collection, and Bottega Veneta, among other runways. In that sense, the trend for chic happy feet still has legs.

 

Legs for Days

Blame it on fashion’s seemingly endless obsession with leather skinny pants, but the latest footwear trend for fall extends the idea of the slinky legging right down to the toes. Christian Dior, Edun, and Alexander McQueen showed second-skin boots that disappeared into the hemlines of skirts and tunics (were these pants, boots, or both?). And at Marc Jacobs, high-shine skintight knee-highs lent prim full-skirted looks a subversive undercurrent.

 

All Earrings

The single earring trend of seasons past gathered speed for fall, with every version on the jewelry statement you could imagine. They were mismatched eighties club-kid style at J.W.Anderson, glittering and shoulder-dusting length at Gucci, and seemed to cover almost every inch of the ear—and face—at Givenchy.

 

Laced Up

If you’ve a soft spot for spring’s gladiator sandals, then the new lace-up footwear promises a smooth wardrobe on into fall. Jonathan Saunders and Giambattista Valli both showed knee-high versions of the look, and designer Phillip Lim even made a case for the lace-up mule.

The 9 Top Beauty Trends of the Fall 2015 Shows

Photo: Taylor Jewell

Whether it was a brushstroke of shocking white pigment on the eyes or a tangle of natural waves and a Pantone red lip, the beauty message at the recent fall runway shows was a bold celebration of individual style. From New York to Paris, designers embraced a new independent spirit—trading anonymous model lineups for eclectic castings and statement makeup that favored personality plus. Hair, too, offered endless opportunities to establish a fresh visual identity: Who could mistake the messy shag of girl of the moment Mica Arganaraz, after all, or the watercolor pink mane of Louis Vuitton scene-stealer Fernanda Ly? Because when it comes to establishing a standout signature, isn’t that the point? As such, we propose that you think of the season’s best trends as helpful jumping-off points for self-expression, rather than hard-and-fast mandates. Here’s to finding your own original beauty voice this fall!

 

The Ponytail 2.0

The everyday ponytail was anything but ordinary on runways from New York to Paris. The highlights: Prada’s gravity-defying side-pinned style and Dior’s waist-grazing asymmetrical take on the look.

 

Graphic Eyes

Color-block lids, kohl-rimmed lashlines, and white brushstroke wings were just a few of the season’s best eye statements, which merged a cool new urban sensibility with a quirky painterly touch.

 

The Big Bang

What better way to stand out from the pack than with a highly personalized set of bangs? Model Vanessa Moody’s piece-y fringe recalled a modern-day Birkin, while Grace Hartzel’s wavy set blends seamlessly with her layered cut. On the Saint Laurent runway, Hedi Slimane continued his three-season love affair with bangs—casting more than a dozen models with the look and offering definitive proof that the trend is here to stay.

 

Decorative Accents

Givenchy’s facial jewelry made for a most striking runway statement, but the fall collections offered up plenty of real-world wearable ideas for self-adornment, too. Be it a jeweled strand running through one side of an easy chignon (Dolce & Gabbana) or a row of glittering crystals beneath your lashlines (Rodarte), there’s a little something extra in store for your hair and makeup next season.

 

A Range of Red Lips

If the season’s ubiquitous red lip palette sounds limiting, think again: From a barely there pressed on crimson stain to a wash of saturated cherry pigment and a slash of grunge-inspired cranberry, the shade has never seemed so appealing.

 

The New Updo

Finger-raked knots (Isabel Marant), sleek high buns (Balenciaga), and slick, subversively tight chignons (Oscar de la Renta) were just a few examples of how the updo shook off its uptown connotations for fall. But leave it to Marc Jacobs to reimagine street style’s favorite hairstyle as a new evening staple in the form of his Diana Vreeland–esque topknots.

 

Fresh Skin

Here’s a beauty prescription for fall: Drink more water, get more sleep, invest more in your moisturizer. Backstage at Calvin Klein, Valentino, Nina Ricci, and Balmain, makeup artists used carefully calibrated blends of face oil, concealer, and highlighter to heighten the appearance of healthy, glowing skin.

 

The Great Divide

In turns boyish and supremely feminine, a deep side part may be the quickest way to add instant style to straight, otherwise simple hair by day. Slicked to the crown with a bit of pomade, the look took on elegant, evening-ready potential.

 

Natural Selection

If the season’s call to individuality was reflected in one singular beauty statement, it may have been the diversity of haircuts and styles on the runway. Nowhere was the trend better exemplified than at Bottega Veneta and Céline, where models walked the runway with their own natural hair texture, whether that meant a mane of crimson curls, pink-streaked waves, or an Afro.

The Top 12 Trends of Fall 2015: The Ultimate Fashion Week Cheat Sheet

collage

Sorting through all of the looks from all of the shows from four (five, counting L.A.) different cities can feel something like a marathon. That’s why we’re here—to do the heavy lifting for you. We’ve analyzed the best collections from New York, London, Milan, and Paris to bring you the top trends that will be making the biggest impact on our wardrobes next fall. Whether you’re looking to bring the interiors out or embracing an Eastern influence, here’s your cheat sheet to all the top trends from fall 2015.

 

World of Interiors

Designers pulled from a world of interiors for fall, referencing fabrics and motifs that usually find their home in a chic living room. At Tory Burch, prints reminiscent of Moroccan rugs stole the show, while in London the likes of Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, and Marques ‘ Almeida gave a fresh new look to stately brocades.

 

The Floor-Duster Coat

Last season’s statement coat trend has legs for fall, quite literally, and hemlines on the most eye-catching outerwear tumbled to the floor at Dries Van Noten, Calvin Klein Collection, and Chanel. Unless you stand over six feet tall in stockinged feet, then pulling off the look will require some towering heels.

 

A Touch of Fur

The monster furs that percolated on the street style blogosphere this winter were chopped and screwed for fall, and pieces of mink, fox, and Mongolian lamb fur were collaged onto everything from prim double-breasted coats at Prada to evening dresses at Proenza Schouler.

 

Neo-Victorian

Be it an elegant high-neck ruffled collar or the melancholy elegance of black lace, a Victorian mood pervaded the runways. Designers like Riccardo Tisci placed the energy of the era in a thoroughly modern milieu, and his new collection for Givenchy was a nod to the style of singer FKA twigs and Californian street culture as much as it was to the nineteenth-century queen. Similarly, Altuzarra’s slit dresses and Valentino’s floor-sweeping lace looks were a forward-thinking take on red-carpet dressing.

 

The Slip Dress

The nineties favorite was reimagined in a myriad of new and unexpected ways this season. At Céline, the slip was gently reconstructed and paneled in contrasting colors; at Prabal Gurung the dress gained a sexy double slit. Worn over pants and under an anorak at Rag & Bone, the traditional lace-trimmed piece provided a clever dusting of femininity to the layered-up winter look.

 

Eighties Redux

It started in New York with Rodarte’s unabashedly glitzy sequin cocktail dresses, and when Jonathan Anderson showed his J.W.Anderson collection, inspired by Berlin club kids who partied before the fall of the Wall, it seemed that the glam good-times look of the eighties was officially on its way back. Bold and brash Memphis colors surfaced on the runway at Bottega Veneta too, while the mutton sleeve made a return at Louis Vuitton.

 

White Blouses

There’s something so alluring about the deceptive simplicity of a white blouse. From high, Victorian frilled collars at Altuzarra to waiter-inspired bow ties at Chanel, from ruffled sleeves at Michael Kors to sheer thrills at Rodarte, the runways were full of reasons to go back and embrace a classic.

 

Patchwork

Lest you think we were done with the seventies—well, we’re not. Just look at the patchworked textures at Etro, Chloé, or Valentino, where mixed media made for a truly big impact.

 

The Pantsuit

Look, good tailoring never goes out of style, and ditto to menswear-inspired style influence. Has there ever been anything as cool and unapologetically femme as a lady in a chic suit? We think not.

 

Eastern Influence

From dragons unfurling down the front of a gown at Valentino (or jacket, at Dries Van Noten) to crimson columns of lace (tiered at Alexander McQueen, straight at Diane von Furstenberg, embroidered at Roberto Cavalli) and limitless amounts of gold—at J. Mendel, at Donna Karan, at Louis Vuitton, at Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Oscar de la Renta—the runways were awash in Chinese influence this season. And how convenient! The Met Gala is just around the corner.

 

Velvet Underground

The most touchable of textiles got a very fall-ready makeover this season, in loose wide-legged trousers at Emilio Pucci and Dries Van Noten or tassle-closed capes and wrap skirts at Lanvin, plunging jumpsuits at Sonia Rykiel or sleek coats at Alexander Wang. As if you needed an excuse to get all touchy-feely.

 

Shine On

This could have been the season of green Lurex with the amount that unspooled over fall’s runways from Christopher Kane to Marco de Vincenzo, but the real emphasis was on shine: whether in skinny knife pleats at the former or longer fluid styles at Loewe, netted separates at Dior or sequins at Nina Ricci. And really, what better way to make a statement in the new season?​

Adam Glassman’s 3 Red Carpet Trends To Try — And 1 To Avoid (VIDEO)

Still oohing over Scarlett Johansson’s dramatic collar necklace and ahhing about Jennifer Aniston’s leggy look? Adam Glassman, Creative Director at O, The Oprah Magazine, breaks down the three red carpet trends from the 2015 award season that we all should try — and the one look that should never be replicated.

Try: Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces were all over the red carpet this season. The trick to pulling off something like Cate Blanchett’s turquoise Tiffany necklace, Glassman says, is to let it be the star of the show. “She built the outfit around the necklace, so she kept the dress very simple,” he explains. “And that’s what I love about statement necklaces, and that’s what all of you at home can do – is you can buy a statement necklace and just perk up a little black dress you have already, a white shirt, even a T-shirt — it could be quite fun. And you can find these necklaces everywhere at every pricepoint.”

Another accessory he loved on the red carpet was Scarlett Johansson’s bold collar necklace. Adam loves this statement piece and the matchy-matchy nature of her look. “Monochromatic always makes you look longer and leaner, no matter what,” he says.

Try: 50 Shades of Blue

“It was all about blue,” gushes Glassman, who loved Jessica Chastain’s navy blue dress.

“Blue is really sort of the newest color to wear at night, especially navy,” Glassman says. Unlike black, navy is much softer against the face, he explains.

Try: The High Slit

“It was all about the leg,” Glassman says. “Everyone had a lot of high slits — Jennifer Aniston, Rosamund Pike, Emma Stone.”

Avoid: Too Much Of A Good Thing

Chrissy Teigen looks gorgeous — no argument there. But unless you’re genetically blessed like the supermodel she is, Glassman says it’s best to stick with “one zone.”

“So if you love your upper body and you want to do a plunging neckline, that’s great,” he says. “Keep everything below the waist more conservative. But if you’re choosing to go with a high slit, then you may want to keep the top a little more covered up.”

The 10 Best Beauty Trends of 2014

Solange Knowles

From slick hair to statement lips, the beauty trends that shaped 2014 may have originated on the runways—but it was fashion’s favorite It Brits, exquisitely low-key Parisiennes, and off-duty Victoria’s Secret models who took them for a street-ready spin (and the occasional stroll down the red carpet). Along the way, they inspired us to try a freshly cut set of Birkin bangs, experiment with a neon-bright lip color, or reach for the proverbial bleach. With the New Year ahead, we’ve already started shifting our sights toward the future—but first, here’s one last glance back at the beauty highlights of the last twelve months.


Short Stories

Arriving in myriad incarnations, 2014 saw the return of the bob. Jourdan Dunn embraced a chin-length crop, and Emma Stone traded in her bohemian waves for a cool new abbreviated length. Even Jennifer Lawrence masterfully grew out her boyish pixie into a surprisingly versatile surfer shag.

 

The Big Bang

The answer to the age-old should-I-get-bangs question was a resounding yes. From eyelash-grazing wisps to thick, tapered styles, 2014’s fringe obsession was enough to make Marianne Faithfull and Jane Birkin proud.

 

Bright Lipstick

Ranging from a straight-from-the-tube swipe of fuchsia to a bold hibiscus stain, statement lips were the split-second beauty upgrade of the year.

 

Bold Braids

From Kendall Jenners thick side-plait and FKA twigss constellation of cornrows to Alexa Chungs schoolgirl pigtails, 2014 was the year of woven styles (and nimble fingers)—no matter what the hair length.

 

Major Midriffs

Crop tops and pencil skirts offered the demure answer to body-con dressing, with a subtly toned core emerging as an appealing alternative to rock-hard overworked abs.

 

Real-Girl Beauty

Who knew ditching your blow-dryer and forgetting about foundation could look this good? Thanks to the undone chic of It Parisiennes like Caroline de Maigret and Lou Doillon—and a little help from the stateside normcore movement—2014 marked a shift toward clean skin, lived-in waves, and a perfect flesh-toned lipstick.

 

Hair Color Statements

The year started out with dramatic hair color transformations in shades of platinum and ginger—before eventually giving way to the unstoppable reign of the brunettes. After die-hard blondes like Aline Weber and Suki Waterhouse took the honey-brown plunge, fashion favorites like Elle Fanning and Cara Delevingne also followed their dark impulses.

 

Ladylike Polish

Acting as a pulled-together counterpart to laissez-faire waves and barely-there makeup, polished blowouts, and neatly painted lips looked refreshingly pretty.

 

Off-Duty Buns

Once best reserved for college all-nighters and lazy Saturdays, the messy bun became the definitive off-duty model look—and, for Karlie Kloss, a defining signature style.

 

Slick Hair

It’s a well-known fact that everyone looks better coming out of water—but this year, wet hair spilled from the beach onto the runways, red carpets, and the street: Razor-sharp parts, slicked-back styles, and shower-fresh waves weren’t just a warm-weather hair strategy, but a starkly glamorous look that lasted well into winter.
