When I think of the word quilt, I imagine a mishmash of different fabrics all sewn together, not something you would necessarily want to wear. Like the throw quilt your grandma has lying across her sofa, not so appealing. I’m glad to say that this Fashionista’s outfit has altered my mindset, just as Dior and Miu Miu did in their fall 2014 ready-to-wear collections. What these ensembles all have in common are their intricate stitching details, just like the ones found on this Fashionista’s shirt. Her head to toe monochromatic white look is crisp and clean yet the geometric quilt texture adds interest. Her coat is also the perfect length to tackle the cold weather we endure during these East Coast winters. This Fashionista’s Rebecca Minkoff bag also adds the perfect pop of color to this mainly monochromatic look. Choosing to wear Converse All-Stars with this outfit was a great alternative to your typical winter boot. The low-top sneakers dress down the look, while keeping you comfortable.
Finding unique clothing is what gives your wardrobe depth. Clothing with that little extra is what will turn heads when you’re walking down the street.
How To: This look is easier to imitate than you’d think. You can find this trendy detail on various clothes, shoes and accessories. Here are some shopable links that display this trend: a pair of Steve Madden slip-ons, a Free People jacket, a Rebecca Minkoff bag and NASTY GAL crop top and jeans. The possibilities are endless so I hope I’ve helped you think of ways to incorporate this trend into your very own wardrobe.
