Effortless chic…this is how most people describe the Parisian style, and I think this outfit is a good illustration of just that. I had a crush on Topshop’s tapered pants selection, inspired by the men’s wardrobe, and especially for the model I am wearing, which is high-waisted to add a touch of femininity. Ideal to wear with an oversize shirt and to complete this very Parisian look, derbies .
We’re already in December…it’s so hard to believe, this year went so fast for me! It’s this time of the year when we start thinking of our holiday style, right? Glitter, party dresses, sparkles…I’ve never been good at dressing for a party, since I am not a fan of the sexy-show off outfits, and I wanna believe that holiday styles can also be classy and minimal.
Paris Fashion Week is over, it’s now time to look back at the runways to figure out what we will be wearing next Summer. Which can be super confusing, I agree, especially because now, in the fashion world, we see everything and its contrary: minimalism, layering, bohemian, rock, ethnic, graphic, denim, glitter…all those trends come back every season, and this is just the beginning of the list.
So instead of trying to spot the fashion trends for the Summer 2016 (because I would find 30 of them, which at the end of the day means none), I chose to share with you 10 strong moments of Paris Fashion Week: some details, prints, looks, which were trend-setting and inspiring to me.
When the little black dress meets the current trends…we can’t resist!
1. A long and transparent tunique dress from Bellerose
2. A leather dress from Les Petites
3. A 60’s Baby Doll from Mango
4. A tuxedo dress from The Kooples
5. A crewneck dress from Margaux Lonnberg
6. A fringed seventies dress from Maje
I am very flattered to present the pictures of my shooting by Delphine, creator of the participative Parisian blog Du Style Madame!
Because I hate to put away my Summer outfits; because I did not get to enjoy this cute short jumpsuit from Parisian designer Ninon Retro (received mid-August while I was preparing my wedding!); and because at the end of the day, back-to-work season is still in Summer, here’s the perfect look, mix of boho and working-girl style, to achieve a smooth transition to Fall.
When it comes to spotting the new shoe trends, I am at the front of the class, and unfortunately for my bank account, part of my job is to look through all the new collections and Fashion Week reviews. That’s how I noticed that calf-length boots are very fashionable this season.
So forget all about the low boots, which we have been wearing over and over for the past seasons. The new boots are higher, sexier, very inspired by the sixties (especially if you get one of those patent leather models as seen at Zara or Mango).
Even though my heart belongs to the Isabel Marant’s incredibly sexy boots, here is my suggestion of 10 calf-length boots; for all budgets, to shop this season:
I am planning to spend the Summer in the South of France, and there I only need denim shorts and a one piece swimsuit (which I wear at the beach or as a bodysuit at night).
Looking for the perfect piece on the web, I’ve been agreeably surprised by some designers/brands: Maje launched an amazing bronze model in Lurex (must look good on my skin 🙂 ), the French designer Albertine Swim (if you don’t know her, go on her eshop NOW, she is the Queen of swimsuits to me) made me melt with her embroidered Camarat model, or Sahara Ray (who I met a year ago during a shooting with Sean Murphy) launched her own super sexy line of swimsuits, for those who dare.
Which one will you fall for?
