In Russia, Anutka stuck to neutral tones that complemented her coloring and worked really well as a chic ensemble. The Louis Vuitton handbag is a classic but her camel-colored H&M coat is right on trend with its thin cord of a belt, and her cropped pants from Zara look right off the runway. 

ALLTHATSTYLE embraced some beautiful and unseasonably warm weather in the UK while wearing a short white dress, belt and shoes from Topshop.

Justlikesushi demonstrated once again how adept she is at making her High Street clothes look high end. Her H&M printed pants look like the pajama-inspired styles that have been seen on runways from Celine to Roberto Cavalli, and she kept the rest of her outfit simple with a plain top from H&M, grey jersey blazer from Bershka, and black pointy heels from Zara. The bird-print canvas bag is something she managed to DIY on her own.

VivaciousCohen stated that she was “Not blue, just wearing blue,” when she posted the Akira Black Label dress that she accessorized with a vintage bag and L.A.M.B. sandals. Who could possibly feel blue while wearing such a pretty hue? You’ll have to excuse the rhyme. I couldn’t resist.

AiryFairy’s rainbow of crochet from Forever21 was the focal point of her outfit, but the bright pink hue of her Dolce Vita strappy wedges ensures that her top isn’t the only thing that will be grabbing attention.

La Vanguardia went for a high-low color block mix, donning a skirt and top from Zara, an eye-catching Lanvin for H&M necklace that proved to be a good match for her Hermes 28 cm Kelly bag, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and Chanel sunglasses. Sonnytsunami “[adored] the color combo.”

In Amsterdam, Toothfairy dressed up her laid back Emily and Fin skirt and Danny Roberts “Girls in Glasses” t-shirt with a Luk ap nubby jacket and a silvery-grey Louis Vuitton scarf. She finished off the look with a Balenciaga bag, Ray Ban sunglasses, and Mango ankle booties.

No stranger to edgy dressing, New Yorker lafindesiecle went for minimum and maximum coverage in a sheer Alex + Eli top with a combination of horizontal and vertical stripes, and a black maxi skirt that was “totally off the old ladies rack at Kohl’s or something for like $8 before ‘maxi skirts’ were enough of a ‘thing’ again to be widely available for cheap.”  

Sonnytsunami showed off her quirky British style in a flowered dress by Nena Cool topped by a Corleone denim vest. She accessorized with a combination of vintage and Primark necklaces, Ray Ban aviators and Irregular Choice booties. Styleismatic characterized the combination of flower print and denim as “effortlessly chic.”
