Altuzarra x MATCHESFASHION.com: A Stripe for All Seasons

Joseph Altuzarra is one of those uncommon designers who consistently and instinctively knows what women want to wear, whether it’s shearling bomber jackets, celeb-favorite fringed hobo Ghianda bags, crinkled linen dresses, or racy laced knee-high boots. Personally, I like to attribute it to the stylish Chinese women he’s surrounded by – his mother, cousin Lily Kwang, and grandmother, who hails from Shanghai like mine. In addition to being superbly talented, Joseph is the most well-mannered boy. He’s a Chinese mama’s dream!

You’ve Been Layering Wrong This Whole Time

You’ve Been Layering Wrong This Whole Time

Who needs to strategically pile on the layers when your new clothes can do it for you? This isn’t just a trend for the festivals, although I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of it at Coachella, thanks to Kendall Jenner’s outfit at the MTV Movie Awards. Switching it up is good for the soul, so even if you’re scoffing at this now, you’ll eat your words in six months when you find that your camisole just feels so wrong hidden behind your dress. I mean, who would do that?

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2016 Collection: Heiress Apparent When a relatively new creative director h

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2016 Collection: Heiress Apparent

When a relatively new creative director has very large, very legendary shoes to fill, it usually takes them a while to find their groove. But seeing that Peter Copping was handpicked by the late, wonderful Oscar de la Renta himself as the heir apparent to the throne, it’s not all that much of a surprise that he stepped into them seemingly effortlessly. For his third collection for the famed fashion house, Copping selected a new location: the Prince George Ballroom. He’s creating his own stories, and this season, he’s also reference 1973’s famed Battle of Versailles. Peter is equally dedicated to paying homage to the original designer’s core vision, and Oscar’s personal touches were everywhere, in the decadent crystal-embroidery embellishments, sparkling sequin bodices, splashes of opulent floral patterns, and delicate A-line lace-guipere skirts, to name a few.

Golden Globe Trend: Cape Dresses

Can we all just agree that Jennifer Lopez was the best-dressed at the Globes? That dazzlingly bright marigold Giambattista Valli gown with the cape was everything. The caped-crusader trend definitely didn’t start with the always-flawless star (remember Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford at the 2012 Academy Awards?), but there’s no doubt she’ll be the one to mainstream it. Be prepared to see cape everything, starting now.
