STYLE GURU STYLE: Bold Prints

It’s nearly impossible to start thinking about fall as temperatures are still reaching the mid-80s. However, there’s no better time than now to start searching for transition pieces that can carry you into early fall, and be on point with upcoming trends. This week’s look was inspired by the alice + olivia fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The pieces were bold and unique, each with a daring print to catch attention this fall. Nearly every piece incorporated a jacquard fabric, with magnificent colorful detail. Pops of gold were integrated into looks, as well as lots of leather.

I was truly inspired by the boldness and color choices of the collection! I decided to take this trend and incorporate it into a summer look. Unlike the heavy fabrics used in the fall collection, I’m wearing a loose-fitting, light romper with a print that is reminiscent of a jacquard. It’s bold, comfortable and perfect for everyday wear. The detailed mix of blues, black and white throughout the print reflect the gorgeous colors used in the collection. I then chose a leather miniature envelope bag with a gold chain to bring in a touch of leather. I also layered a few necklaces to add a pop of gold. One detail I love about this romper is the cross-back straps. I chose to enhance this detail by wearing a bold black bralette that highlights the straps further, and brings a cool focal point to the look. To finish it off, I’m wearing a pair of black platform shoes. Although it’s a summer piece, this look can transition perfectly to early fall with a chunky sweater and a pair of black leather booties.
