Fashion Month Has (Already?) Returned

It's very weird to me that Fashion Month is upon us again already. It seems like we were watching Chanel Aeroport just yesterday and now we're watching Kanye's ridiculous presentation at MSG. If you want to know my honest thoughts on that, dig through comments on The Atlantic's website and find out. For now, here are my street style picks from Net-a-Porter's always wonderful Fashion Month edits. 

New York
(modern minimalism)

This look harkens back to one of my favorite looks from 90s pop culture. It's a modern take on Cher Horowitz's iconic gym look in Clueless. I'd go for layers, wearing the Maison Margiela cotton-and-satin jersey dress over a pair of black frayed tweed crops from Proenza Schouler and ultra-90s Mansur Gavriel slides. If I felt like fitting in, I'd carry the Balenciaga clutch that everyone has or if I'm feeling slightly more original, I'd take something from Olympia Le-Tan (probably the Sensation of Flight clutch because her Japanese collection is stunning). 

London
(urban edge)

There's more layering in the London look. I love the sporty feel of Net-a-Porter's edit and decided to go all out. I've been obsessing over Jacquemus lately and am drawn to this linen-paneled wool dress every time I see it. There are clearly some tennis-inspired elements in the dress so I would wear it over a cashmere sweater from Equipment with clean white Common Projects sneakers. While writing this, I decided to stick with Olympia Le-Tan as my bag choice for three of the four cities. For London, I choose the Rebecca book clutch because it's a very British story and the colors work well.

Milan
(eccentric elegance)

Milan is usually difficult for me because I'm not very interested in crazy prints and the maximalist perspective we saw at the last Gucci show. I stayed fairly simple with this look, choosing to balance neutral colors with texture to create interest. To keep it Italian, I'd layer a Gucci ruffled crepe-de-chine blouse under a 60s-inspired metallic brocade dress from D&G. For accessories, I'd go with these leather Chloe sandals and the seen-everywhere Linea G 2 bag. 

Paris
(insousciant chic)

Finally, Paris. I want everything in this edit immediately and found it difficult to come up with just one outfit. Sticking with the trend of layering, I'd wear this little Joseph dress over a pair of slim-fit boyfriend jeans from Current/Elliott with a very French pair of suede Saint Laurent lace-up sandals. Considering the weather, I'd keep a fringed Saint Laurent jacket on hand. Importantly, I'd keep jewelry minimal--maybe something from Sophie Bille Brahe--and carry the quirky Marguerite bag from Olympia Le-Tan.
