What To Actually Wear To All Those Outdoor Weddings

image
Weddings are difficult enough to get dressed for, so when a wedding is outdoors, well, it makes things even more complicated. First, you need shoes that won't be a total disaster on grassy or hilly terrains. Two, you need to be prepared for whatever the weather might have in store (high humidity, thunderstorms, who knows). Add the fact that an outdoor wedding tends to have a totally different, more relaxed vibe, and you need a look to match. Since it's late-summer and wedding season is in full-force, we're constantly thinking of clever outfits that are both practical and photo-worthy. Of course, you're always safe in a non-white dress, but outdoor affairs are a prime opportunity to experiment with suits, skirts, jumpsuits,...

The Best Fashion Instagrams Of The Week

1
Summer seems to be expressing itself through hot-hued clothing this week, and on Instagram, red was the warmest color of them all. Slick Woods emanated attitude in a fiery off-the-shoulder knit dress; to top it off, she wore scrawled-on sneakers to match the graffiti-ed door behind her. The rapper Future also looked cool as ever in his red tracksuit with white sneakers, leisurely flying on on a private jet. Offering a more polished take on the color, model Anna Mila posed in a vermillion ‘70s-style suit with a McDonald's yellow button-up. And for those still hungry for more of the red-hot red Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration, Tabitha Simmons was the envy of every hypebeast in a monogrammed hoodie. (Something...

Runway Or Céline Dion Way? Proof The Singer Can Transform Any Look

01-celine
Céline Dion’s fashion rebirth has come together with the help of her stylist, Law Roach. Together, the duo have turned seemingly unattainable runway pieces, such as a neon green Balenciaga dress or a leather Saint Laurent bustier, into real-world fashion moments. You didn’t have to look much further than the endless line of fans outside Dion’s hotel in Paris during the couture shows earlier this month, all waiting to get a glimpse of her daily looks, to know they’re onto something. What’s more, the way she styles her high fashion ensembles with playful verve is often radically different from the way they’re shown on the runway. Take Dion’s recent Giambattista Valli couture frock, for example. In the brand’s show it was left bare,...

Expert Interview Outfits

landscape-1500309478-lede-1-3
What makes a great job interview outfit? Step one: It has to fit well—no pulling buttons or skirts hiking up. Step two: It needs to be appropriate for your field. The elusive x-factor, though, comes from creating an ensemble that makes you feel like a powerhouse. And while it's tough to check all those boxes, the great news is you only have to do it a few times. Keeping a dependable, proven interview outfit is like having an up-to-date resume; you're always ready for whatever opportunity comes next. While the Marie Claire offices are pretty casual compared to, say, a law firm, they also demand a certain sense of taste and style. (Read: Finding a look can be panic-inducing.) Here, the...

Stella McCartney’s Latest Campaign Was Shot In A Landfill, & Here’s Why That’s Totally Normal

image
For designers, the most important moments to showcase the DNA of their brand come in the form of catwalks and campaigns. Where a 15-minute runway show reveals what's to come, an international advertising campaign cements their vision into history. Some houses play it safe with glossy pictures, and others use the opportunities to create shock and awe. All of this may sound like good marketing, but the results can vary (and, in some cases, be banned). A recent example of this is British designer Stella McCartney's latest campaign, which sees models wearing her high-dollar looks in the middle of a landfill. But did the lesson in contrast succeed in painting the pretty-ugly picture consumers need to see? McCartney upheld her ongoing commitment...

Sorry, French Girls Just Aren’t Into This

summer-basket-bag-221229-1491943996407-image.640x0c
It's not just you, baskets are everywhere right now. The relaxed summer style has long been a favorite of French women, but it's catching on globally too. According to data collected by Paris-based Vestiaire Collective, Parisian trends are taking over just about everywhere. And one tidbit we couldn't help but latch onto is the idea that French women prefer simple sleek bags to overly flashy designer styles. “The basket, like the idea behind the Balenciaga Bazaar, is the ultimate anti bag," says Marie Blanchet, Vestiaire's head of vintage. "French girls don’t obsess over It-bags too much. " According to Vestiaire's data, searches for basket bags are up over 350 percent since last year, an impressive jump for so short a time. So if French-girl style is currently on your radar,...

Gucci’s Urban Garden

hbz-gucci-in-bloom-00-index-1500315788
When Alessandro Michele and I meet at his hotel in New York’s SoHo, after what has already been a long workday for him, he tells me that he almost added another layer to the day: On the way here, his people had to talk him out of taking a detour to de Vera, one of the many antiques stores he knows and adores in the city. “I mean, if you are a collector,” he says, “you find things everywhere. Also, if you go outside just to the pharmacy, you come back with something. It’s like you are a prisoner inside a bit of a dream. If I have one minute, I take my iPad and I spy everywhere.” Michele is a...
