In the month leading up to fashion week, I tell myself that I am going to prepare dozens of super chic, fashion week ready outfits…
In the week leading up to fashion week, I realize that I’ve done nothing in terms of preparing outfits because I’ve spent all of my spare time watching “Friday Night Lights” on Netflix (Tim Riggins. Need I say more?) but I know there is always one person I can turn to for ultimate style inspiration: Emmanuelle Alt. Did you see Garance’s photos of her?!?
My best friend and I like to refer to her perfectly put together combinations of skinny jeans, simple tees, blouses, killer jackets and Alaïa heels as Altfits (TRADEMARK PENDING). As I gaze into my 2 ft x 2 ft closet, I ask,“Is this an Altfit?”
Here is a quick quiz to test your Altfit understanding.
1. Black Skinny Jeans + Grey Tee + Chloé Tuxedo Jacket. Altfit?
2. Peplum Top + Pencil Skirt + Tights. Altfit?
3. Cropped Leather Pants + Black Cashmere Sweater + Pointed Toe Heels. Altfit?
(Answers appear at the bottom of this post.)
I will admit that due to a certain Nemo (blizzard, not fish) shaking up New York Fashion Week, I was slacking on my Altfits, but I am promising myself to do a better job heading to Paris…
Now that you know my (and the studio’s) ultimate fashion week (and general every day dressing) inspiration source, who do you look to for style inspiration?
Do you also find yourself asking WWEAW (What Would Emmanuelle Alt Wear)?
(Answers: 1. Yes; 2. No; 3. Yes)
