Oh Chloé, how you speak to the feminine side of me. For fall/winter I just want to be decked in Chloé's winter white garments with oversized tops and femme slips. It is the perfect relaxed look for the feminine girl. Although the prints didn't speak to me, the cuts of the collection are always precise and well thought out. A combination of texture play and print without being being over the top.
A combination of mute colors, minimal design, texture play and a hint of boyish femme, make Haider Ackermann's FW14 collection perfect for the power house woman - the woman who has to dress up for work everyday like it's her job. Ackermann is able to contruct a slouchy sweater, yet maintain the elegance of the line.
Over to Paris, where the magic happens and where expectations are high. Christophe Lemaire's show was yesterday and I would like to pre-order everything. The collection was perfectly styled - layers upon layers were draped on the models with high necklines, billowing bottoms, oversized collars and cozy knits. The color palette was perfect predominantly including olive, navy, cream, camel and grey.
Costume National's collection was so refreshing during Milan Fashion Week. The collection was filled with architectural clean lines with a twist of inspiration borrowed from the boys...and I must say, that's right up m alley. Style.com says this collection is for the "cool woman" and I can't disagree - the minimalist, modern thinker. From furs to loose tailored pieces, I love the modern twist on the turtleneck and the pops of color.
Needless to say, it's chilly out and as much as I love layers, there's only so many you can pile on before enough is enough. I'll be the first to admit that sometimes you don't want to run around the city in your best attire when you have to go grocery shopping or work at a coffee shop. Do not get me wrong, I'm not saying to drop the ball on style when it comes to minuscule tasks, however, you need to have those days where you feel cozy and comfortable. I like to call it the Sunday Attire - when you are prepping for your week ahead and taking the day off to kick up your heels while doing the little tasks. Not to fret, I found a solution to make casual comfort work in your favor. I'm all about the winter lights and tonal dressing, however, my favorite color combination of the moment are whites, neutrals and grays. Inspired by my Sunday outfit, you simply have no excuse to look drab at your worst.
