The spring summer shows are everywhere; from the start of September, fashion week swept from one corner of New York to the other before heading across the pond to quirky, yet classic, London. Now with Milan Fashion Week and la dolce vita well underway, and Paris just on the horizon, here’s how you can capture the style of each city, whatever your budget.
New Yorkers keep things sleek and simple; with the likes of Donna Karen and Victoria Beckham marching down the runway, these women know that less is definitely more. Keep your colour palette in the neutrals, adding hints of colour here and there with accessories, keep shapes sleek, and let a few well-tailored pieces do all the talking. Drape a loose-fitting duster coat around your shoulders, like this Topshop beaut, and team with a pair of classic slacks and thin knitted top like these two from H&M. Get them for even less with our H&M vouchers too. Big Apple chic in three easy steps.
London fashion has always had a quirky edge; whether that’s design details, fabrics, or vintage items thrown together with newer pieces, London has kept its cool, It-girl crown year after year. Take your inspiration from the London streets with classic items such as the Chelsea boot, and mix with a vintage denim pinafore dress from LCRVintage (also currently with an extra 10% with our voucher code) and you’ll be fashion week ready from the Kings Road to Somerset House, and Shoreditch to Brewer St car park.
The Italians know about the good things in life: food, fashion, amore… So capture that mediterranean flair as seen on the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana, Dsquared2, and Gucci season after season with these three key pieces. 1. A beautifully loud, Italian-inspired jacket: guaranteed to add a little dolce vita to any outfit. 2. An incredible pair of heels: well, you want to stand out from the crowd (literally)! And finally, 3. A big pair of sunglasses, because summer or winter, there’s always a ray of sunshine in Italia!
Chanel is the quintessentially Parisian brand, encapsulating the classically chic nature of high end French fashion. Add a little Coco to your wardrobe with monochrome pieces such a these Topshop ballet flats; team with a simple pair of Hepburn-worthy cropped trousers, and finish off with this boucle harrington jacket. That elusive French je ne sais quoi is closer than you think!
