STYLE ADVICE: Mismatch

STYLE ADVICE: Mismatch

If there’s anything we’ve learned from this fashion season, it’s that impossible combinations result in bomb outfits. Take Supreme x Louis Vuitton. An edgy sportswear brand focused on skateboarding collaborating with one of the classiest French maisons: unbelievable. Not to mention the impact athleisure has had on haute couture. This past Milan fashion week, Versace bet on a sportier image and, far from the alluring cuts that have dominated its last runways, redefined what elegance means. Taking this step, the Who What Wear collection for Target  mixes “office-approved” garments with informal trousers. Fashion is definitely sailing to different (and more open-minded) seas.

Following the direction this century’s fashion is taking, this Fashionista combined in her outfit two personalities. At the same time she was the good girl your mom wants you to be friends with and the rebel friend from your class who reads Charles Bukowski’s poems. Her black dress with a white collar reminds me of Wednesday Addams, but she gives it a twist with the red lipstick. Her beanie and booties are super casual and sporty, which contrast with the classiness and elegance of the dress.

This gracefully mismatched outfit will rock the spring season (for sure), but beanies and tights are not meant to be worn when the sun starts to appear. As I’m striving to start saying hello to flowery dresses and walking around campus without jacket but also want an outfit like this, I suggest a fresher approach. Try wearing a sleeveless dress with a white T-shirt, the results are the exact same!
