Yellow has steadily moved onto our radar since we saw it pop up on the Spring 2013 runways — Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, and DKNY all showcased cheery yellow hues, which is why we've rounded up some standout accessories to help you jump on the bright Spring color trend. From a sporty backpack to a pair or patent flats, watch on to see our picks now. On Allison McNamara: Forever 21 jacket and top.
Olga Kurylenko made a strong case for high slits at her latest red carpet appearance, and needless to say, she has us convinced that we need one, too. The stylish actress attended the Moves Magazine party in NYC decked out in a svelte green dress by Altuzarra paired with matching buckle boots. While the overall length and fit of her dress are pretty modest, the sleek side slit detail adds just the right amount of party appeal. We also love the idea of wearing this look to the office (dress code permitting) styled with a sleek blazer and pumps, and if you're looking for less of a commitment, opt for a side-slit skirt and pair it with a semisheer blouse or silk tank for your next cocktail meetup.

Cara Delevingne stole our hearts with her playful personality and gorgeous eyebrows, and we're not the only ones who are captivated by this British model. Chanel, Burberry, and DKNY have all selected her to front their big ad campaigns — and we spotted Cara on the streets of NYC shooting another round for DKNY. Watch today's Fashion Flash for the scoop! On Allison McNamara: Tucker dress, Low Luv jewelry.
For DKNY's Fall 2013 collection, Donna Karan gave us a glimpse of the season's sporty-cool downtown girl. The collection was full of athletic-inspired separates done up in a sleek color palette of camel, black, white, gray, and pops of bright rose pink — and we are loving the exploded leopard print that seems to take on the look of camouflage. Click on to watch the DKNY Fall runway show in action.
We spied Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell before the DKNY Fall '13 show — wearing the label's cool-girl wares, no less. Our fashion reporter Allison McNamara chatted with the actress about leather jackets, dressing for cold weather while still looking cute (long johns are not off limits!), and the fashion decade she loves most. Ready to see what Shay had to say? Press "play."
DKNY Fall 2013 had the city girl on its mind, with proportion plays, tough padded black pieces, and a cool palette of camel, black, white, gray, and pops of bright rose pink. The standout print of the show was an exploded leopard print that almost evoked camouflage, while pieced together neoprene and wool came together for cool outerwear. Oversize jackets topped sweater dresses, with exaggerated knit maxis making a stand for evening.
The most recent case of '90s nostalgia comes courtesy of today's official launch of the DKNY and Opening Ceremony limited-time capsule collection. The retailer is reissuing 15 of DKNY's iconic early '90s pieces, including a t-shirt printed with the NYC skyline from '92 and a hooded logo dress and a colorblocked jumpsuit from '94. "DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the Nineties," said Opening Ceremony cofounder Carol Lim. "We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today." And Lim isn't the only one feeling the pull of the '90s. We've seen a resurgence in both fashion and culture where this era is concerned, not least of which is the overarching grunge-rock plaids seen in both Phillip Lim and Dries Van Noten's Spring shows, Alexander Wang's Bon Qui Qui stunt, and the comeback of MTV's House of Style. It may be more than a decade past, but from where we're sitting, the '90s never really left us. The throwback staples are now available in Opening Ceremony boutiques and on the website, with prices ranging from $145 to $665. Click on to see the complete line, plus some of the better '90s style moments to make a recent reappearance.
If there was even a shadow of a doubt about the return of the '90s, Opening Ceremony's new project with DKNY should obliterate it.
The retailer will reissue 15 of DKNY's archival pieces from the early '90s, including t-shirts screen printed with the New York skyline and the DKNY logo, a colorblocked jumpsuit, and a cropped puffer jacket. The garments will be available in Opening Ceremony boutiques and on its website this Friday, priced between $145 and $665.
"DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the Nineties," said Opening Ceremony's Carol Lim in an interview with WWD. "We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today."
That freshness may owe a debt to the overall comeback of the '90s in fashion and in culture. MTV resurrected its groundbreaking TV show House of Style in August, and the cult brand X-Girl announced that it would return to the US just this week. When you factor in the resurgence of grunge on the Spring 2013 runways — articulated in the mix of plaid and florals shown by designers like Phillip Lim and Dries Van Noten — there's no doubting that the dream of the '90s really is alive.
That said, part of the target demographic for this collaboration — including the star of its campaign, Cara Delevingne, born in 1992 — probably weren't wearing adult-size clothing when these garments were first introduced. For those readers who don't remember the spirit of Karan's '90s designs — or who just want to take a trip down memory lane — a look back at some of DKNY's ad campaigns from the '90s, here in the gallery.
