ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five moments of fashion, from across the internet, that we loved this week
Barbie girl: Yes, the Barbie-inspired fashion editorial thing has been done before. But the Barbie feature in Vogue Japan’s April 2015 issue totally nailed it! Model/actress Rosie Huntington Whiteley does a convincing imitation of everyone’s favourite fashion doll, from the painted-0n half-smile to the stuck-together fingers. The spread, photographed by Ellen von Unwerth, was styled by none other than our O.G. Woman Crush Wednesday, Anna Dello Russo.
Top trends: Can you believe fashion month is already three-quarters finished? With just Paris left on the schedule, Fashionista took a look back at the top trends from Milan Fashion Week. They range from the predictable (seventies-inspired styles) to the wacky (no less than four shows in Milan featured fur shoes!).
Gorgeous in green: Whether you’re looking for the perfect forest green shirt to wear to the office or a sexy turquoise crop top for hitting up the pub with your pals, one of the green pieces in our St. Patrick’s day roundup is for you. Saint Paddy’s may be a few weeks away, but it’s never too early to shop! (That’s basically our motto).
Spring style: Not that we didn’t love the wintery fashion on display outside New York and London’s fashion weeks, but we’re kind of sick of wearing big coats. It’s March, after all. Luckily, the weather was comparatively balmy in Milan, and Flare’s rounded up all the springiest street style looks. It’s still super wintry in Toronto, and these looks added a dose of sunshine to our week.
The newest way to wear a belt: We’re sure you already think you know how to wear a belt – you wrap it around your waist and buckle it, duh. But the stylish folks at Man Repeller, inspired by fashion week street style, have devised a trendy new way to wear them. You buy it two sizes two big, and loop the excess. It’s the easiet thing in the world, and it works perfectly with the seventies-inspired skirts and jeans we’re all going to be wearing come September.
