From Runway to Real Life
Sometimes I look at the gorgeous pieces from the runway and think...it's beautiful but how am I supposed to find something like that without spending thousands of dollars? Let's be real. We know how inspired designers can be and the extent of their wacky creations...they're not always the most wearable trends.
Today, I'm going to share a couple of looks that I loved from the Fall 2015 shows. I'll take you through how to style pieces from your own closet to recreate these in a more practical way.
Tip: Never take it literally! The Gucci look is a bright colored sweater with feminine but quirky embellishments paired with a lace skirt. Recreate this look with a semi cropped sweater, either a bold color or a patterned one, and match it with a easier silhouette like skater skirts in a lace material. Finish with a cute beret or go for a statement necklace instead.
From left to right, I have a retro look, a casual look, and a chic look...all incorporating stripes! You can really play around with a structured or totally loose dress. If you're planning on being out and about, try a two-piece outfit. Throw on a super cute headband on bad hair days and you've got yourself a simple but put-together ensemble.
It wouldn't be a Fall inspired styling without some darker colors. This runway look from Rodarte is perfect for colder weather and can be recreated for a cool office outfit. Take your must have white blouse and pair with a camel colored blazer with burgundy leather pants if you want exactly the same look. You can also mix it up by opting for a softer sweater with a similar color palette or choose a coat with a similar checkered pattern.
One of my favorite pieces from the Bouchra Jarrar show was the flowy, bluish lavender skirt. How gorgeous! Now I know not everyone is going to have a skirt in this exact shade. The solution is to incorporate the color in other ways like accessories. Pair a leather vest with a turtleneck for a cozy look and add a loose skirt...you will look so effortless! Finish with either some oxfords or sneakers to roam around town.
Those are my stylings for the Fall 2015 Runway. Tell me which one you liked the most!
Bye for now,
