One word comes to mind when describing the #streetstyle at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, hot! Both the weather and the fashion was enough to make you short of breath.

Fashionistas braced the heat to strut their best looks from simple and classic to edgy and retro. There was something for everyone. The Lincoln Center was full of unique fashions from elaborate gowns to grunge looks and everything in between. Models, bloggers and editors alike swarmed the scene in their best summer attires.

The most popular looks included lots of black, white and neutral colors from head to toe. There were also a few trips back in time with some looks from the seventies encompassing the flared pant look, as well as the shift dress looks from the sixties.

A lot of the #streetstyles also included wide-leg trousers and full skirts, the bigger, the better and of course lots of fabulous sunglasses to keep out that NYC glare.

If you’re looking for fresh ideas and must haves for your closet then put your shades on and prepare to see some bright stars straight from the streets of NYC.

Speaking of stars, we managed to catch a certain global fashionista/superstar (hint- it’s only bloomin’ Rihanna!) hitting up the Alexander Wang show looking immaculate in denim. Have a look at our exclusive video below of her arriving and check out our interviews with some other bloggers too!

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Certainly not us!

The sun is shining and the sky is blue. At least, it will be once you head out to your holiday destination and look forward to a few weeks away from the stress of everyday life!

Before that happens, you need to get yourself organised and get shopping for your holiday wardrobe. Now, first things first, you need to consider the essentials…

Holiday Swimsuits

If you’re loving the vintage styles out there right now then shun the typical bikini and go for a stylish swimming costume. Gone are the days where you shunned the unfashionable swimsuit in favour of a bikini, because they can hide a multitude of sins, plus you have the added bonus of not having to deal with horrid looking tan lines! No rules here; simply see what’s in fashion and buy what you love! Personally we’re pretty big fans of the retro-inspired high waisted bikini right now!
