Combat Boots

Even pacifists can get behind that military vibe. This fall, leather boots come with a combat-style lace-up front for a tough-girl aesthetic. A great combination with a floral dress.

Fendi’s Triplette for a Triple Effect

Is there a miraculous formula for creating an It-bag? Probably as Tim Blanks pointed out in an interview with Business of Fashion recently about the biggest trend for the upcoming S/S 2018 season, it is all about «making the ordinary extraordinary».

Fendi‘s new Triplette clearly conveys that message. One bag is not enough. More is more is the motto! Three small clutches connected by a Fendi logo charm (the label’s new signifier) allow you to store your personal belongings in a very organized way. But pragmatism alone won’t make an It-bag. It is the combination of sizes, colors and finishes that make it an effortless option for day and night. Each pouch can be detached and styled solo. My advice? Get two and mix and match!

Lone Star – The Single Earring Trend

The runways have made a strong return with the single statement earringseen at houses like DiorRosie Assoulin, Tibi, and Louis Vuitton over the past seasons.

In order not to look like a pirate, choose a piece that veers on the glamorous, feminine side. At once edgy and easy to pull off, a lone earring has the ability to make anyone look – in a word – cool. Wear yours with attitude without looking like you are missing something…
Here are my favorites available at the moment:

The Slouchy Boot

The knee- or thigh-high boot is the front-runner for fall. Look for it in ’80s-style slouchy leather with a sharp toe and an inverted heel. Pair it with a printed dress, a skirt, or over jeans.

A Different Angle

This season’s bags are reminiscent of the Bauhaus movement. Forget slouchy hobos and complicated origami silhouettes; fall’s bag is decidedly geometric in form.
