STYLE GURU STYLE: Classic Crops

April 8th, 2015 at 2:00am

I got lost scanning through dozens and dozens of runway shows and found I was most drawn to Chanel’s spring 2015 couture line. This line is bursting with attitude that is reinventing the Chanel name. The show is overflowing with flat sock-booties, bared midriffs and slouchy skirts. Karl Lagerfeld’s theme for the show came to him in his sleep, where he dreamt of a garden inspired by Metropolis, one of Lagerfeld’s favorite films.  His dream is very present on stage as there are 300 flowers decorating the set, which somewhat inspired my look.

It seemed that every other look in the line had a crop top piece. These were not your typical Coachella, fringy crop tops though. These tops added class to each look, while still staying on trend. I was inspired by this contradiction and threw together a look of my own that screamed “class” as well as “crop!”

So today I wore a black short skort with pleats from Zara. I had nude tights on to keep warm in this not-so-warm spring weather. I wore a black chiffon crop top also from Zara with details of daisies on the entire shirt. The shoulders are lined with ruffles and the back is secured by a tiny button at the top. I wore my black Ralph Lauren boots to finish off the look.  I wore my hair natural with a slight wave and smacked on some deep marsala lipstick, which is of course is Pantone’s color of the year! I also had my red Barbour raincoat with me to keep me dry, it also added a pop of color that matched my lips!

The spring 2015 show inspired me to stay classy but calm.  The pieces are all very put together but with a loose, free spirit vibe.

Get My Look: 1. Detailed crop top. 2. Black skirt. 3. Black knee-high boots with metal hardware. 4. Marsala lip color.
