Time to swap out your basic tee for a basic black turtleneck.   Always hunting for good black turtlenecks this time of year. Turtlenecks layer nicely under blazers, flannels, sweaters, and dresses.  They can look simply chic and uncomplicated when worn alone.  A classic must have for the cooler temperatures.  Here are few to get you interested.

Sneakers are here to stay and isostilo is a fan.  Just look around the next time you walk down the street, flip through a fashion magazine, or witness the sneakerheads that are waiting in line for a current drop.  You don’t need a reason to wear them.  They give an instant refresh and let us not ignore the comfort they deliver.

You may not love the current ugly dad sneaker but that is not your only option to be a player in the sneaker world.  What is your style?  Sneakers range from bold, subtle, classic, sleek, to sporty.  All the classics are back and they are not slowing down with their releases.  isostilo is a bit biased towards Nike and adidas.  Their prices are within reach and their styles are always on point.  There are plenty of players in the field.  Check out isostilo’s round-up from Net-A-Porter.  Prices swing!

 

 

 

Rain Drops No Problem

Rains

isostilo is wishing for one of these today.  Rains is making rainy days more enjoyable with their new capsule collection of glossy sorbet colored rain coats.  We have been seeing more transparent looks on the streets so Rains is on point with their glossed up look.  You may hope for rainy days just to be able to wear one these chic cheerful jackets.  Even their classic collection comes in a ray of styles and colors.  For the longest time there have been few options when it comes to rainwear.  This is no longer the case.  Leave it to the Danes to deliver stylish jackets that are aesthetically pleasing, modern, fashionable, and functional.

A rain jacket is one outerwear piece that everyone needs to have in their arsenal.  This capsule collection could warrant having two just for the fun it.  Personally, I love my Rains jacket from their classic collection.  It has served me well.  My dear friend, on the other hand, has unfortunately not experienced dry days with her Rains.  I truly believe it is a one-off!  Being headquartered in Denmark this company has plenty of experience with rainy days.  Here is to singing in your Rains!

Paris Fashion week could be one of isostilo’s favorite of the fashion weeks as far as street style is concerned.  No rules applied!  Pulling out all the stops and not holding back.  Women flaunting their style.  Personal style is delivered from bold to muted colors, oversized statement pieces, eye-catching ruffles, elongated sleeves, big cuffs, and layers of pleats.  All the shades of green are hard to ignore.  The knee socks and sneakers have me heading straight to Nike.

The range of fashion is great, wide, and unique.  Everything you hope for with fashion week.  I am a big fan of women blending feminine and masculine silhouettes.  I love the longer skirt hems, fuller trousers at any length, the variety of footwear, to the statement accessories.  Nothing is boring and the most subtle of styles is defiantly never not considered!  The last image is my favorite.  The 80’s influenced Vetements jacket is so flipping street chic cool especially paired with this ensemble.  The skirt and red belt with a clip attachment is simply perfection.  Sign me up for the whole look minus the heels (sneakerhead here).

The new Celine with no accent and no Phoebe Philo was the much-anticipated show at Paris Fashion Week.  It is now Hedi Slimane’s Celine.  The only pre-glimpses to his collection were seen on the arm of Lady Gaga, who was sporting the 16 bag at the Venice Film Festival and then prior to the show, Korean pop star, CL posted a very stylish pic of herself with Slimane’s quilted box bag with the letter C on the clasp.

Changing guard is often hard.  Phoebe earned a devoted following with her feminine, sophisticated designs that made women feel strong and confident.  Hedi Slimane has a different aesthetic and not much different from his Saint Laurent days.  The new Celine appears to be very rock’ n’ roll worn by thin models ready for a night out but this isn’t terribly new to the fashion scene.  I am in the Phoebe camp 100% but in all fairness these are tough shoes to fill when you are nostalgic for the past because it was so damn good.  At the moment I am not a fan of the new Celine.  isostilo will remain open-minded for the future of Celine.  With that said, the one piece from this collection that is eye-catching are the black tapered trousers with the geometric shaped oversized pockets.
