Break out the shades ladies and gents because the sun is out! To tell you the truth, I never thought I’d see the day. After probably the longest winter of my life, any kind of sunshine is welcome with absolute warmth and affection. The clear skies are a nice change of pace from the stale, gray 30 degree days. Despite a distinct nip in the air, I’m beginning to see more of a turn and self expression among the fashion scene. Pops of color, patterns and a general lightness are making a comeback to accessories across the board.
Playing with sunglasses are a great way to start channeling summer, even with a chance of snow still quite probable. This Fashionista rocks an exaggerated pair of cat-eye sunnies. The overall ensemble is casual while the sunglasses add drama to the look. Her coat emphasizes the drama due to the boxy structure and sleek faded camel color. The darker piping and gold buttons on the coat coupled with the brown beanie also make the black angular glasses pop.
I like how the outfit plays with neutrals, texture and an infusion of sophisticated sportswear. I didn’t even register that the entirety of the outfit is a basic sweatshirt and leggings because of the styling. There is an ease to her outfit that made the casual qualities obsolete. The graphic tote also pulls together the look with color and some personality while the shoes add a bit of an edge. By adding the coat, sunnies and slight pop of coral on the lips, the outfit became a chic way to enjoy a breezy, spring day.
Spotted: Erdem implements sunnies into their 2014 resort collection which play well with feminine shapes and playful patterns of the garments. The sunglasses work well with the simplistic nature of the pieces and bold, geometric florals.
