All the Best Front Row Style from Paris Fashion Week

The Paris collections are fashion’s main event, and there has been plenty of style on display at the spring/summer 2022 shows currently underway. As celebrities from across the globe fly in to experience the latest from Dior, Saint Laurent, Chanel, and Givenchy, they’re bringing their A-game and suitcases filled with designer goodies. After several seasons of virtual events and live-streamed runways, PFW’s calendar of in-person events has led to a front-row renaissance and plenty of high drama ensembles. 

The fun kicked off before the shows even began. To honor the Thierry Mugler, Couturissime retrospective at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Cardi B arrived at the museum in a classic from the Mugler archives. The red sequined bustier gown and feathered stole from the designer’s fall/winter 1995 collection was exquisite when it debuted on Eva Herzigova nearly two decades earlier. Cardi recreated the look down to the blonde coif and bejeweled eyebrows.

Fashion Over 40: How Alison Lumbatis is Helping Women Everywhere Usher in A New Chapter in Style | State

DALLAS, Sept. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Fashion at its core is rooted in individuality, unique expression, and fun.

Alison Lumbatis, founder of the world-renowned fashion blog Get Your Pretty On, has masterfully created the Outfit Formulas styling program to help women of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds dress to impress in what makes them feel best.

Return-to-office style: Letting go of dress codes; embracing hybrid fashion and individuality

Millions of Americans have traded traditional work wardrobes for loungewear in the nearly two years of working remotely during the pandemic.

Now, as companies discuss return-to-office plans, many people are also rethinking what their post-pandemic workwear might look like. Will traditional “work vs. weekend” wardrobes become a thing of the past after the pandemic?

“The lines between work and weekend have been blurring for decades,” Deirdre Clemente, professor of fashion history at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, told “Good Morning America.” “This transition, [due to the pandemic] has certainly been faster since business casual became the standard for workplace attire in the early 2000s. So what we view as pandemic dress standards have actually been coming slowly for quite some time.”

“Dress standards change as American culture changes,” she added. “The pandemic has put many aspects of our lives into sharp focus.”

The best fashion updates to transform your wardrobe this autumn

Yes, the end of our (limited number of) warm, sunny days is here – but the benefit to cooler temperatures is the influx of cosy knits, statement jackets and lots of layering.

Autumn fashion is one of our favourites as you get to play around with a range of styles and trends. While hotter climates bring back the airy summer dress, we know many of you are screaming out to shrug on a little jacket over the top – or experiment with your look via a pair of thigh high boots.

Having previously been treated to a little peek at the winter collections for a ton of brands, there was one thing I noticed at every preview: wardrobe staples. While there’s lots of exciting newness to come, there were also a handful of pieces that I was sure I’d seen before. In fact, there are six pieces that were staples
