From Marc Jacobs’ red carpet-themed runway, to Balmain’s all-star model lineup, to Chanel’s first class airport setting, the recently concluded fashion month brought a handful of exciting shows that we’re clearly have not yet recovered from. Yes, most of us were watching all the fashion flurry from our mobile screens, but that doesn’t make it any less thrilling.
But aside from the backstage selfies and hit-making hashtags, fashion week is still largely about the trends coming to light on the runways. Here are the 8 stand-out ones we culled from New York, London, Milan, and Paris.
This spring, designers offer a skin-baring proposition in the form of shoulder cut-outs and clavicle-baring necklines. Each X Other reinvents the button-down while Givenchy, Erdem, and Derek Lam make a case for subtle sensuality with this this sellout trend.
Tiered ruffles enrich ladylike silhouettes on the spring runways. Fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Balmain employ frills on column skirts for a more feminine touch, while Proenza Schouler serves us a clean, knockout look with ruffles and cutouts pulled together with a bow.
With countless possibilities on the runways, it’s a surprise when models pop up in something as arguably mundane as denim. This season, a resurgence of denim takes place as designers like Anthony Vaccarello and Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton elevate this staple material to not-so-basic status.
Slip dresses worn outside the bedroom have been a thing since the ’90s. This spring, the trend emerges yet again as lace and satin are favored by fashion houses like Celine, Haider Ackerman, and Alexander Wang, while Clavin Klein crafts a cool-girl update with a laid-back silhouette and metallic sneakers.
Folk-infused collections are rampant on the runways with an emphasis on detailed embroideries, ethnic prints, and rich fabrics. Naeem Khan takes us on a Mediterranean journey with ornately beautiful pieces while Alberta Ferretti gives us peasant chic with breezy fabrics and traditional lace.
Beach vibes are strong as tie dyed pieces take a major moment this spring. From Altuzarra’s high-slit summer essential to Paco Rabanne’s playful, sequined-adorned dress, the DIY trend is definitely taking a sexy turn this season.
It’s all about glitz and glamour this season with glittery gowns from designers like Marc Jacobs and Sonia Rykiel. Gucci’s lustrous ensemble embodies the fashion house’s ultra-vibrant collection while Saint Laurent gives their rock-chic muses a groovy spin with sequined pieces.
Voluminous silhouettes are presented in billowing sleeves, be it old English style as seen at Erdem and J.W. Anderson or a modern, statement-making piece as seen at Celine. Emilia Wickstead also hops on the trend with a roomy, striped to perfection gown.
Do you remember the last time you Sharpie-d or embellished a pair of sneakers? For us, it had been far too long so when we saw Miu Miu‘s latest glittery sneakers for fall, we were anxious to bling out our own pair using a pair of classic Vans as our canvas. But honestly, what fun is it unless you can DIY a pair too? Leave a comment and we’ll select a reader, at random, to choose their own pair of DIYable Vans. More details after the jump!
Start by taping the edges of the shoes, covering the rubber soles. Cover both toes with tape as this is where the rhinestones will be glued on later. (Click images to enlarge)
Add one part course glitter to two parts Mod Podge into a small plastic cup or tray.
Stir the mixture thoroughly with a paintbrush. The consistency should be rather thick but not pasty. Apply a layer of the glitter mixture to the shoe. Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes and add a second and third layer until hardly any white space is showing. Use an exacto knife or the edge of your fingernail to scrape off any glitter that might have dried onto the grommets or soles.
Remove the tape. Using adhesive, glue the rhinestones on the toe in any pattern.
Sport your new Miu Miu inspired glittery sneakers with or without laces!
Don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to DIY your own pair of Canvas Authentic orSlip-On Vans! (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Winner will be announced and contacted by email on Friday, September 9th. Good luck! xx) **Contest is now closed.

For most people, an all grown up Disney star up means leaving a tween TV show, moving on to mature roles in the silver screen, or perhaps a shocking transformation that would shatter her teeny-bopper cred and, sometimes, your childhood memories. But in our books, being grown up in the spotlight means finding oneself and, most especially, developing a tasteful, sophisticated style.
So it’s much to our delight when we noticed Selena Gomez fitting the bill and upping her street style game. Whether she’s stepping out of a Parisian hotel or heading to a radio interview, Selena is totally navigating fashion girl territory. Her style has become more polished, modern, and amazingly chic.
Despite the fact that a classic pair of pumps is the ultimate power choice in the work setting, some of us simply can’t (or refuse to) walk in heels from 9 to 5. Thankfully, there are always stylishly polished alternatives out there in the form of flats. With these on-trend non-heel steppers, you don’t have to risk being sent to the human resource office or coming home with sore feet.
Whether you’re working in the corporate or creative field, here are 5 office-appropriate flats that can take over those 5-inch, pointed-toe pumps once in a while.
I know I wasn’t the only person who fell in love with the prada platform brogues complete with raffia edging. I decided to get crafty and have a try at making a similar pair. Never one to copy something exactly, I made a black and white version to pay homage to the A/W monotone colour trend, and stuck with only a slight platform – you can always do more of a platform by adding more layers of foam if you like.
A pair of lace up canvas sneakers (try a cheap shoe store or supermarkets)
Foam for the platform – I used a pair of old flip flops
2 shoe soles – I cut them off a very old pair of sneakers but you can also get them from a cobbler or buy an extra pair of canvas sneakers in a different colour.
Flexible glue and a hot glue gun
Raffia – I used plaited straw raffia from a craft store.
A stanley knife and sandpaper for adjusting shoes/foam for the platforms so they fit together.
Step 1. Glue the sole and the foam together using the flexible glue. Then glue the sneakers to the foam.
Step 2. Press the three layers together and let dry overnight. I weighed mine down with some bricks to apply the right amount of pressure.
Step 3. Once the glue has dried, hot glue two layers of raffia around the edge of the shoes to completely cover up the foam. Make sure any join of the raffia is centred at the back of the shoe.
Step 4. For a finishing touch I threaded the sneakers with the black laces from the old shoes I took the soles from. You could use any colour laces – neon would be fun!
And voila, your very own raffia embellished creepers!
