STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Down To Earth

Style Advice of the Week

While this Fashionista may not be the most in-tune with the great outdoors, she certainly knows how to mimic Mother Nature’s natural beauty. Wearing a range of mossy greens, earthy browns and a bright shade of cream, this Fashionista embodied the typical earth toned fall palette in a refreshing and innovative way. Drawing inspiration from her surroundings, this Fashionista showed off her sartorial flair while remaining as down to earth (toned) as ever.

Upon spotting this Fashionista, I was immediately drawn to the organic color palette of her outfit. By wearing entirely neutral tones, this Fashionista created an intricately colored ensemble that also remained cohesive. The small variances in color throughout her outfit helped establish differences in articles of clothing without having the colors compete against each other or appear too similar. By likewise incorporating  assorted textures throughout the outfit, this week’s Fashionista created a further element of interest to her outfit. Natural fabrics including suede, leather and cotton dominated the outfit and added to its overall cohesive appearance.

To finish off her look, this Fashionista accessorized with a mossy knit circle scarf and a pair of green and brown laced leather boots. While I immediately fell in love with the natural green circle scarf, I even more so was in love with this Fashionista’s over-the-knee boots. The gentle distress of the fabric renders the boot more natural than glossier leathers,  while the colored threading in the back of the shoe adds a touch of vintage elegance.

To achieve a look similar to this Fashionista’s, make sure to experiment with the neutrals in your closet. Try, for example, pairing this Salvatore Ferragamo brown sugar wool-cashmere cape with a pair of olive skinny jeans and espresso booties.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Down to Earth

Uncategorized

Let nature grow into your summer wardrobes this week, Fashionistas/os! Earthy tones, lightweight fabrics and an overall minimalistic approach should do the trick in achieving an environment-inspired outfit that really makes a call to the wild.

Looking like a spritely woodland fairie in a stunning forest green dress, this Fashionista truly channels the feel of the outdoors with her silky outfit. The bagginess of her top and the sexy, toga-like asymmetrical skirt also add a certain “untamed” sense to her look. It also doesn’t hurt that her dress is sleeveless with black mesh shoulder straps—a simple yet elegant design perfect for summer wear. She then adds in a couple of brown, wooden bracelets and a beige clutch with blue streaks for a little color.

Fashionistas/os, tune into your own wild side! Ladies, if you want to go classy, try out this Celia Birtwell dress. Or if you’re looking for a longer, more bohemian style, check out this simple maxi dress from UrbanOutfitters. Accessorize these dresses with golds, silvers or browns to really capture an woodsy feel. And Fashionistos, I suggest trying out some olive green flat sneakers, straw fedoras, or woven belts to get a little bit more down to earth. 

Forests and greens aren’t the only way to add nature into your wardrobe. Find your own personal environmental inspiration, whether it be deserts, oceans, rivers, jungles, etc and make it your own!
