New York Fashion Week SS 2013...Margaret

Margaret Zhang from Shine by Three blog, after Diesel Black Gold, NYC, September 2012.

I always like what Margaret wears and this floral shirt + leather shorts combination is no exception. And her hair? A perfect example of reworking a runway trend and taking it to the street.

Recreate Margaret's look (kind of):

Print shirt: Warehouse bird print blouse, Acne Patsy Bouquet oversized silk shirt, Tibi Jude silk shirt, No. 21 printed silk blouse or Topshop floral shirt

Leather shorts: BB Dakota leather shorts, Funktional pleated leather shorts, ASOS leather shorts or Isabel Marant leather shorts

Alexander Wang Lina pumps

London and New York Fashion Weeks AW 2012...Natalie and Margaret

Natalie Joos (London Fashion Week February 2012) and Margaret Zhang (New York Fashion Week February 2012) in crimson red.

In homage to Kate Middleton's red Alexander McQueen dress on Sunday, I thought I would show you two ways to wear red....head to toe!

Recreate Natalie's Look (kind of):

Michael Kors red crepe dress, Giulietta red crepe dress, 10 Crosby Derek Lam midi dress,

Break up the red with navy (like Natalie's beanie and sweater) or charcoal (like Margaret's coat) if head to toe red is too much.

Recreate Margaret's Look (kind of):

Red wide leg pants: Alice + Olivia poppy wide leg pants, Kimberly Taylor Abigail pants, Diane von Furstenberg Athos wide leg pants

Double Up on Red: Valentino wide leg pants and top

Red blouses: T by Alexander Wang linen silk jersey tank, T by Alexander Wang silk and mesh shirt or Yigal Azrouel cutout blouse

New York Fashion Week AW 2012...Margaret

Another girl whose style I am obsessing over is Aussie beauty Margaret Zhang, Editor of Shine by Three blog and commerce/law student.

I adore the simple white column dress (white dresses like this remind me a little of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's  Narciso Rodriguez wedding dress) teamed with the blazer and beaded scarf necklace. Simple, elegant and beautiful.

Recreate Margaret's Look (kind of):

BCBGMAXAZRIA white T-back dress (love three four things about this dress: it skims rather than hugs the body, it isn't too "bridal" nor beachy, it isn't just for after-dark, and it has an interesting back - perfect for showing off sun-kissed skin).

Roarke coralline scarf necklace  (from Anthropologie US). I also love the peter pan collar necklaces from Dannijo this season - an easy way to update a simple outfit, and achieve a similar look to the scarf necklace. Dannijo Hixson collar necklace or Dannijo bronze chain link peter pan collar both investment pieces which would last for years.

And then just add a punchy coloured blazer of your choice (with sleeves rolled up of course!). Try Elizabeth and James Spring Jim blazer in tiger lily or Rag & Bone 42nd Street blazer in turquoise.
