When Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez sent an embroidered sateen sweatshirt down the runway for Fall 2012, we could sense a trend brewing. And now that cooler weather is upon us, it seems that the Proenza boys were onto something big. Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten, and more have also gone the embroidered route when it comes to toppers like crewneck sweatshirts and baseball jackets. We’ve rounded up four of our favorites below.
1. Proenza Schouler quilted sweatshirt, $3,295, available at www.netaporter.com
2. Emma Cook embellished sweatshirt, $305, available at www.luisaviaroma.com

Choosing a chic jumpsuit requires an editorial eye, and clearly, Likuna Karkashadze (pictured) has one. It doesn’t hurt that fashion journalist and stylist Natuka Karkashadze is her sister. The Georgian stunner paired her lavender paisley one-piece with simple black stilettos and a mini bag, which made for the perfect look to wear to the Paris fashion shows. Street-style photographers wasted no time snapping her photo, either. We liked her getup so much that we rounded up four of our favorite printed jumpsuits, from Stella McCartney to Issa, to try out now.

In the 1988 film Working Girl, Melanie Griffith’s character famously wore sneakers for her daily commute, swapping them out for heels at the last possible minute outside the office. These days, both designers and street-style notables are leaving their dressy footwear at home and making fashion statements with athletic shoes. And no, we’re not talking about those ubiquitous Isabel Marant wedges. We’re referring to a specific subgenre of sneaker, i.e. competitive trainers made for running sprints (whether they be around the track or on the city sidewalks).
The trend really kicked into gear last month, when Tommy Ton snapped dapper guys wearing Nike and New Balance in Milan and Paris. Similar styles showed up on the runways at the Salvatore Ferragamo, Raf Simons, and Valentino menswear shows. Girls are embracing the look, too. At the opening of Yayoi Kusama’s Whitney retrospective, the artist Kara Walker dressed down her Zero + Maria Cornejo dress with sporty sneaks, while Vika Gazinskaya was among those who wore them during Couture.
