STYLE GURU STYLE: Braided Boho Babe

As a fashion enthusiast, I do my best to not always stay inside of my comfort zone. It can be a hard battle with myself to stray away from the ultra-feminine and classic silhouettes I am so familiar with. But like in any other areas of our lives, it’s important to challenge ourselves stylistically.

I immediately fell in love with the MSGM resort 2017 Collection the second I looked at it. Giorgetti describes it as a “clash between a romantic vibe and an almost obsessive focus on sports.” With the athlesiure movement still going strong it’s easy to see that this theme is still finding its way onto the runways as we dive deeper into 2016. Each look from the collection features strong floral patterns juxtaposed against sporty silhouettes and stark black fabric. I took inspiration from each look and was excited to contrast my usual style with Giorgetti’s ideas.

While my own look doesn’t scream “Did you just come back from the tennis courts, girl?” I needed this look to be of my own creation. I chose to pair a floral cami with a pair of high-waisted black skinny jeans to bring in the darker vibes the MSGM collection offers. I did my best attempt at a Dutch braid crown and hoped Arya Stark would be proud of my sporty-chic endeavor and decided to take a more bohemian interpretation, so I paired the look with an olive green bralette and a dainty choker necklace. To finish off the look, I popped on my favorite Topshop sunglasses and a pair of trusty black sandals. Although my take on MSGM’s resort collection may be a little different than someone else’s, I challenge all of you Fashionistas/os out there to do something a little more fun and wear something a little unlike you—it’ll be worth it.
