STYLE GURU STYLE: All-Black Everything

The three trends that have been on my style radar lately (and what I’m trying to perfect in my own wardrobe) are minimalism, monochromatic and retro. Keeping in line with my healthy, or unhealthy, obsession with culottes, I just had to combine these three trends into one look. Given all the amazing creativity and visual inspiration from the latest runway shows, I had all the tools to create a runway-inspired look. The Tibi fall 2016 ready-to-wear show projected serious cool and comfortable vibes with a variety of looks featuring loose-fitting elements from wide-legged trousers to relaxed dresses and skirts.

The relaxed nature of the Tibi show gave me the idea to complete a look that juxtaposed loose with fitted. This style combination makes for a sophisticated look because it adds depth and makes two elements seamlessly complement each other. Since I wanted to incorporate the monochromatic trend into the look, I chose a fitted, black turtleneck and combined it with a pair of wide-legged culottes. For an effortless look when you don’t feel like putting time into your outfit before you step foot on campus, just simply pick a pair of culottes or a simple turtleneck to elevate your look to the next level. In order to add an element of decoration to the look, I chose a pair of oversized earrings for a splash of color. Finally, I added a pair of tall riding boots to give a subtle detail to finish the look.

Don’t be afraid to take inspiration from the catwalks and turn it into a RAD street style look for getting around campus.
