STYLE GURU SYLE: Playing With Prints

Style Guru Style

It’s no secret that Naeem Khan is playing with prints in her resort 2015 collection. From elegant blues, to bold stripes and rounding off the collection with feathered prints, Naeem Khan was able to bring many exciting elements to the collection’s looks.

Starting off on the runway, the resort 2015 collection begins with pieces embroidered in blue. The looks then transition to bold stripes adorning garments suited for many occasions, varying from a casual day out to an evening gala. The patterns continue as a parrot feather print is introduced. Naeem Khan wraps up the collection with neutral black and white. These pieces range in prints while maintaining a consistent color palette.

To create my own look inspired by this resort 2015 collection, I focused on the black and white prints. By maintaining a neutral color scheme, a look can easily transition from day to night.

I started my look with a simple black and white patterned sleeveless dress. This dress is simple, comfortable and has the potential to be dressed up or dressed down. Dangling earrings and bangles were then added to give this look a pop of glitz.  In order to finalize this ensemble for the daytime, I threw on my favorite pair of gladiator sandals. With a chunky heel, these sandals are ideal for a day to night transition.

When shifting from day to night, this look only needed one simple thing, a pop of color. Adding a pop of color does not always mean adding a colorful garment to your look. In this case, I applied a vibrant red lipstick to create that pop. This lipstick not only adds color to the look, but it also highlights the face, enhancing the appearance as a whole. By creating a transitional look, you will be ready for whatever the day or evening may throw at you.
