I don’t mean to be apocalyptic, but this weekend is officially the last of the summer. Panicking? I definitely am. There are so many floral shirts, seashell anklets, and tropical trousers I’ve yet to wear that I’ve entered a fugue state. How will I possibly manage to fit all these important ’fits into the next four days? If you too are feeling overwhelmed by the arrival of fall and all its sartorial traditions—argyle, plaids, trenches, bourgeois Celine skirts!—may I offer a small solution: Live like it’s summer all year long by taking fashion inspiration from 12 of the most summery fashion shows we have covered on Vogue Runway.
From Chanel’s beachside set in the Grand Palais to Thom Browne’s poolside couture, fashion loves nothing more than an homage to hot sun, great tans, and that easy-going, summertime spirit. Relive the best ones below.
