Paris Street Style

The French are always lauded for their effortless style. Whether it’s their bare-faced beauty or their impeccable ability to layer, they have their fashion game down. Did they bring it to Fall/Winter Fashion Week in Paris this week? We’ll let you be the judge.
Tapestry Coat

Floral Coat and Dress

Flower Print Coat

Floral coats and jackets were so in! Nothing like some beautiful blooms to brighten a drab winter day.

Butterfly Back Sweater

We may not be able to grow wings, but we can fake it with a cool sweater like this!

Orange and Blue Heeled Shoes

These shoes have such a unique heel, and the color combination is so fun!

White Pleated Skirt at PFW
That pleated white skirt is so on trend, and offers unexpected lightness to a cold-weather outfit.

Paris Street Style Anna Dello Russo
Well obviously Anna Dello Russo isn’t going to ascribe to the less-is-more rule, but she doesn’t have to. If your motto is “Be Bold”, she is your style icon.

Paris Street Style Floral Scarf

We love this simple look with the signature French stripes! The added accessories make it even more stylish.

NYFW Street Style

1

Street style photographers are constantly on the hunt for the next big thing, and we’re no exception.  Let’s set the scene for you…imagine a group of photographers swarming as if Paris Hilton were entering a room, circa 2008. Wouldn’t you be expecting someone incredible? To our dismay it was simply a man wearing a bedazzled pair of pants. Here at M&J that’s nothing special.

What Influential People Wear to NYFW

We love seeing what goes down the runway during fashion week. However, it is often the show-goers that are dressed to impress. We observed some of fashion’s finest in their natural playground, New York Fashion Week. We loved seeing what outfits are donned by the men and women behind our fashion magazines.

Dip Dye Street Style Edition

Here at M&J we can’t take our eyes off anything and everything dip dyed. The instant color boost screams summer, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Whether you’re dressed in black head to two, or rocking many shades at once, a dip dyed accent will be sure to take your summer look to the next level. This trend has been going strong for quite some time, so why don’t you dip in?

Summer Street Style

2

New York City can be brutal in the Summer, so it is crucial to dress for the heat. Hit the streets in style with some of our favorite summer looks. Maxi dresses and cut offs are a major staple amongst New Yorkers and it’s easy to understand why. These pieces can be worn individually or layered in case your office air conditioning is set to an Arctic breeze as ours sometimes can be. However you choose to style your looks, have fun, it’s just fashion!

Trend We Love: Overalls

7

Ever since Pippi Longstocking’s debut, overalls have been in style. Although they took a quick break in the fashion circuit they are coming back with a bang. The traditional style has been transformed in a very modern way. The once conservative look can now be seen in cutting edge colors, and unexpected fabrications. How will you be rocking the look this summer?

Handbag Fashion Inspiration

Summer is officially here! It’s time to trade in your boring black bags for something with a bit more color and spunk. When looking for the hottest handbag trends of the season we often look at street style pictures for inspiration. We adore each of these looks and couldn’t wait to show them off with you.

Street Style Handbags

The other night, we were fortunate enough to be invited to the Seventh Annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards. This event allows designers of all ages to showcase their talents and submit a handbag design for a chance to win a multitude of awards. Of the attendees, previous winners, Rafe Totengco, Carlos Falchi, Leah Karp, Brooke Jaffe were with the contestants awaiting the results. Many of the finalists traveled from all over for this special day. Each person there was truly astonishing.  All of the previous winners have gone on to have great success either on their own or with large corporations. We wish them nothing but the best, and continue to support them throughout their journey.

We found so much inspiration at the Independent Handbag Designers Awards for future DIYs opportunities this summer.  Here are some of our favorite street style pictures urging us to go out and recreate some bags on our own. Stay tuned for our Bag DIY later this week
