There are two times a year that you will catch me clamoring through the slow-loading pages of fashion week street style shots. It's like sweating an addiction waiting for the next page to load. So many of what I see are inspirational and interesting in a way that my day-to-day choices are not. Of course these ladies are simply playing to their audience with their choices and not necessarily to real life limitations. That being said I'd like to kick off a new series I will lovingly call Street Style Review.
Similar to my previous posts including the WTF Trend of the moment (remember the backwards blazer? Oh 2010, you shouldn't have.) I'd like to take a second to review some of the best and worst looks from the latest fashion weeks all over the globe. Images include NYFW, London, Paris, and Milan. You may see some of my commentary and think - wow, what a hater - well, I am no hater, but I am person with an opinion and a strong love for fashion. I just want consumers to be wary that these trends do not translate to the streets of Houston, Texas.
PS. We are having a lovely time in London. The weather has been just dreamy and the city is even better than I imagined. There is so much to do and see that it is a bit overwhelming. Brad and I are also still getting our sea legs with the jet lag, but I am positive tomorrow will be better. Our hotel is right next to St. Paul's and the Millenium Bridge. We are staying at the Grange Hotel. I am running A Brand Strategy from here and so far, so good. More on London with pictures later this week. Promise! For now, please follow my Instagram @aftonbailygriffin for more.
|Glamorous, understated layering at it's best. Gorgeous.|
|Ah, the 90s. This outfit represents the absolute worst of that decade's trends. Sry.|
|I love the monochromatic nature of this look. Understated chic without being boring.|
|This to me is a literal reminder of why couture clothes should stay on the runway. She's struggling to do the easiest task ever in those sleeves. No thanks.|
|She manages to hit every trend on the books and only feel a teeny bit like she's trying too hard. Overall she nailed it whilst (see what I did there? London!) looking super cool too.|
|There were a lot of gals that went full on underpants dance this year. Def NSFW.|
|I love the mix of the textures and the use of the blue pattern in two places. The culottes trend is flattering on no one anywhere, but this chick manages to make them look interesting.|
|These 3 ladies were seen a lot of places and their hats were part of the shtick, but overall a resounding NOPE.|
|Ok, ok, this one DOES toe the line, but where else in the world could one wear this and get this legit picture? |
Answer: No where but here. Ps. Is that you Brooke Candy?
|Is it just me or did she run out of the house and leave a few buttons undone? |
This vato look is a resounding NO. Even with those abs.
