STYLE GURU STYLE: A Study in Patterns

August 4th, 2016 at 2:00am

Rich colors and intricate patterns were blended together seamlessly in the Roberto Cavalli 2017 resort collection. The collection was full of denim and color, brimming with flowy styles that draped elegantly in an effortless manner. The use of print and color throughout this collection created a beautiful combination of rockstar and wanderer. Incorporating color-blocking and rich designs, each look was more intricate than the last. Fringe and embroidery harmoniously followed beaded gowns and animal print. These pieces were fabricated from the mix of delicacy and edge.

This collection represents a life of glitz and glamour that can be found through the vagabond stylistic choices. The models are equipped with messy natural hair and minimal makeup creating a natural style that looks comfortable and relaxed, yet still remains chic and enchanting. The Roberto Cavalli 2017 resort collection was a beautiful work of contrast between elegance and unrestraint.

My main focus for my outfit was applying the rich colors and floating qualities to my style. I wore a bright and colorful dress that flowed past my knees and was light and airy. It incorporated a number of different patterns and colors that called to this collection through its vast usage of prints. I also wore a pair of black booties to streamline the look and not take away from the richness of the dress. Just like the collection, I went for minimal jewelry and makeup, and finished off with natural wavy hair. The breezy movement of the dress created the perfect globetrotter look that the Robert Cavalli collection was after. The booties added the bit of rocker chic to top off the outfit in the same manner that many of the collection’s looks had.
