STYLE GURU STYLE: Classic Bohemian

December 4th, 2015 at 2:00am

Vogue and runway are two things that can never disappoint me. When you add my favorite designer, Rebecca Minkoff, to the equation, there isn’t a flaw. Top designers spend months creating their runway collections, which consist of extremely unique and couture style combined into their own signature looks. Imitating runway isn’t easy, but personal expression is the key to being able to truly showcase it yourself.

In Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, she was sure to drop some jaws. When they say expect the unexpected, they mean it. Minkoff relied on color story to portray her parade of designs. Starting with the classic bohemian style, she focused solely on colors such as virginal ivory, cream and bone. Through those color choices, she revealed a new side to the typical boho style. Minkoff would never forget to incorporate her grunge side, which consisted of grunge plus boho through her special use of leather.

I couldn’t help but fall in love with the first part of her show, so that is what I tried to incorporate into my everyday look. Creams and ivories always bring out the natural color in your skin tone. Nothing screams boho more than Free People, so I decided to throw on my favorite white Free People dress with lace cutouts. To keep with Minkoff’s color scheme, I accompanied the dress with an oversized ivory cardigan for those chilly fall days. To add something a little bit more colorful, but still within the color theme, light brown riding boots are a bold move to catch people’s eyes. Knee socks are a must this fall season, especially when paired with riding boots, combat boots or even booties. Anything gold perfectly accents neutral colors; hence, my gold bangles and layered necklace.

Get My Look: 1. Any bohemian dress that compliments your skin tone, whether it is light or dark. 2. Gold accessories. 3. Boot socks to complete your bohemian ensemble.
