Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.
I’ve been drawn to vintage/worn-in tie-dye tees lately. The best ones in Goodwill or in vintage shops are always the kid sizes. They have profound graphics and color. When I found this one, I was shopping for a styling job. I couldn’t say no.
With this off the shoulder trend now taking a back seat, I decided to give it one more go. When trends are at their time’s end, it is my favorite time to try and make them new. I had usually worn this top in particular with jeans or cropped flair pants.
I am loving the sunshine, but I am not quite ready to let go of my jeans and knitwear. To balance the light and mood of a beautiful spring day, I made this cozy but vibrant look.
I woke up this morning feeling extra thankful for all I have experienced and all that I am able to do. After a relatively stressful start of the week, it was so refreshing. This lead me to want to share my favorite thing I do to unwind and let my thoughts go.
Simple but interesting layers were huge in this past Milan Fashion Week. We saw them in Giorgio Armani, Marni, and MSGM among others.
Below is how to play into this elegant layering trend in a contemporary and city-approved way.
