What-To-Wear Weather

What do you wear when it’s 30° in the morning and 60° by afternoon? I pile on the layers and top off with a knit poncho or wrap. I have a number of cashmere ponchos that I’ve collected on my travels. They are perfect for traveling, too.

Poncho, jeans, Tod’s loafer

A Versatile Skirt

I have a number of events this spring that range from a daytime graduation to cocktails, launches, book signings, etc. When I saw this flirty Giambattista Valli skirt I had an ‘aha’ moment–it could be styled so many ways (with items I already have) and it wouldn’t look like I’m wearing the same thing over and over again.

Black Isabel Marant top and herewhite Isabel Marant top, brown A.P.C. sandals, Givenchy earrings, The Row mules.  I love this longer skirt by Ulla Johnson, too.

Famed lensman Paolo Roversi shot the cover of Self Service issue 46, which hits newsstands (in Europe) tomorrow. Matches Fashion sat down with the editor-in-chief Claire Thomson-Jonville to talk about the magazine’s 25-year history, the launch of a new branch of the Self Service brand, an agency called Content Matters, and the Scottish-born editor’s Parisian style.

Off-The-Shoulder

Last year I toyed with buying an off-the-shoulder dress or top but thought it would be a flash in the pan trend and didn’t pull the trigger. A year later and it’s still going strong. In chambray is crazy chic, I may have to try this one by The Great.
