Hey guys welcome back to reality, aka the week! Oh yes, sorry to herald its return. Weekend or week I’m just ready for it to get properly chilly so I can finally try out all the layering looks that have been piling up in my mental lookbook, but alas it’s still light sweater weather so I’ll have to deal.
With that being said, there are still ways to start to layer in a way that allows for minor temperature fluctuations without having you sweating or freezing. A heavy blazer, a fur gilet, something to add to your wardrobe for this transition period. This weekend some style mavens embraced the season’s change and others dug back in their summer wardrobes to soak up the sun. These are my 5 picks who are currently #WINNING with their street style savvy looks.
First off, we have man around town and luxury fashion influencer Tom Claeren channelling James Bond/Men In Black. He may blend into the monochromatic background on board a Silver Yacht but his style always stands out. A simple black suit with the shirt unbuttoned just enough and showing the right amount of skin for a dashing flair, dark round sunglasses from Opticien Créateur, and Louis Vuitton Damier luggage makes us all rethink our travel looks. However, we are not all Tom Claeren departing a superyacht via helicopter … actually I retract that statement ... this is Monaco. Anyways the stakes are raised. Thanks Tom for putting dudes all over the Principality to shame for their sweatpants in public (I don’t care if they’re Loro Piana).
Fashion blogger Lauren was clearly happy to be in warmer weather again as she returned back to Monaco, posing with a blinding highlight in a pale pink 10 dress and coordinating Gucci clutch. If only looking so glam casually hanging in the park was so easy. Throw a coin in that fountain if you want but looking this flawless is probably just wishful thinking.
Fashion journalist Hanadi Merchant-Habib finally got to break in her new blue velvet with grosgrain trim Gucci blazer and boy was she excited about it. Standing out in a sea of dad jeans and ugly sweaters, Hanadi showed the stylistically challenged the correct way to transition to fierce fall dressing. Her outfit was popping and so were the colours. A cerulean Gucci Dionysus bag and hot pink Gucci shoes added to the colour block dynamic of her ensemble (oh, and Gucci is always a good idea). To keep it casual, she added a white camisole and denim mini-skirt that works perfect for the daylight hours. A pair of Dior So Real sunglasses give her an air of anonymity to the gawking masses on their way no doubt to comb Zara for a velvet blazer after spotting her.
Helene de Cicco
You guys, if I could go back to my school days this is what I would wear ... instead of baggy Polo sweaters and LL Bean backpacks. Helene’s look is everything in the fact that it’s simple with just the right trendy touches, the streetwear and luxury mix. First of all the Supreme t-shirt … if you don’t currently have one in your outfits rotation are you even into fashion? The black pants and white Stan Smith sneakers keep it uniform and crisp and OMG the Louis Vuitton briefcase has her serving EXECUTIVE REALNESS and you’re all FIRED! If an exact copy of this look pops up on my Instagram feed it’s just merely coincidence.
This brunette beauty is literally a tutorial for fall 2017 dressing. Let me breakdown her outfit from the feet up. Must-have shoes for the last billion seasons the Gucci Princetown fur slip-on loafers, casually frayed jeans with a not so casual price tag, a black leather jacket (they never go out of stye), a white fur gilet, and a classic blue Balenciaga motorcycle bag. She looks comfortable, it looks lux but not over the top and still very accessible. The perfect look for grabbing a pumpkin spice latté with your girlfriends at Starbucks or a walk around the port with your favourite four-legged friend. Coralie is autumnal #GOALS.
