I don’t know about you, but when it’s cold and snowy, I tend to reach for my Sorrels and a big oversized Theory sweater that’s insanely warm. But in Paris, snow and windchill doesn’t deter their style. These snaps from Paris Couture Fashion Week make me want to move to Paris just for the outfit inspiration alone (and the idea that by osmosis I will adopt the impossibly-chic Parisian style).
I love Vogue.com’s feature, “Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl” that profiles what they wear at the peek of chic. I’m always inspired by what the editors of the legendary fashion rag are wearing, and their amazing accessories. The latest installment features Special Events Associate Phoebe de Croisset, whose mix of colors, patterns and textures is the perfect way to liven up your winter wardrobe.
Um, if sweatpants were in style (like to wear in public, when not on the way to the gym), I’d be the happiest person alive. As much as I LOVE fashion, I live to be comfy.
So how jealous was I when I saw Emily Blunt looking beyond chic in her airport-appropriate sweats?
The keys to pulling it off: The look is far from sloppy. Blunt sticks to fitted black sweats paired with a fitted striped sweater and cute moccasin booties and polished extras.
Normally I’d say kids and parents matching is never okay, even if said kids are pre-K. But I’m loving the Obama ladies color-coordinated inaugural ensembles from today. Maybe it’s because if Michelle Obama were my mom, I’d want to dress like her too.
The Obama’s color theme for this year’s inaugural festivities? Shades of blue and purple, with Obama leading the way in dark blues and her daughters lightening things up in shades of purple.
At Sunday’s swearing-in ceremony, the First Lady donned a cobalt Reed Krakoff ensemble, Malia wore a dark purple sweater dress and Sasha wore a plum lace dress (belted — just like mom).
Then today, the First Lady went with another dark blue look in a navy Thomas Browne printed coat, while the First Daughters witched up their purples, with Sasha in a violet Kate Spade coat and Malia in a more magenta-purple J.Crew coat.
Anyway, I thought all three ladies looked so modern yet appropriate — and though I’ve never been a fan of purple, the fashionable First Family just might make me one.
I mean, could these two be any cuter?
And the outfits the Obama ladies wore under their coats were just as chic — and color-coordinated. Go figure!
What do you think of the Obama inaugural color coordination?
