Fashion is a truly evolutionary process. Time and time again, designers reinvent their label and look, all while staying true to their core value: to deliver the utmost quality high-fashion. Valentino has done exactly that yet again. Featured in their spring 2014 runway show, pieces took the meaning of exotic to a whole new level. It was out with the old and in with the new for this fashion powerhouse. Worldly and travel-inspired pieces flocked the runway. Each and every corner of the earth was represented in Valentino’s new collection. Bold colors and eye-catching patterns made a grandiose statement. Pastels were replaced by darker, mysteriously evoking elements. However, Valentino showed that simple pieces such as black gowns, rompers and jumpsuits could be adorned with bright details to create a bold look. Elegance can be found in both simple yet daring elements.

Keeping boldness in mind, I decided to recreate a similar trend. I typically opt for simpler and classier pieces. My instinct always points me towards more neutral colors. In this case, I decided to go for a sleek black romper. I accessorized with bright statement earrings. In addition, my metallic sandals added to my outfit and helped break down the black romper to give it a more casual look. Adding a black shoulder bag with gold detailing and fringe further tied my look together. By incorporating classic elements and mixing them together with trendier pieces, I managed to stay true to my style.

Get My Look: 1. A classic black romper. 2. A pair of statement earrings that make a pop. 3. A pair of heels to take the look from day to night.
