STYLE GURU STYLE: Comfortably Sophisticated

The A.L.C. spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection boasted simple yet comfortable textures and shapes with fresh takes on classic silhouettes and a chic color palette for spring. Bralettes with high-waisted skirts extending down to the knee, slouchy trousers and boy cut shorts, blazers with mini skirts and cropped tops, matching patterns on tops and skirts and a onesie that took the shape of tube top with harem pant were all incorporated into this eclectic collection that was held together by a strong color scheme and sharp silhouettes. Stripes, polka-dots and various floral prints were mixed in with the classic black and white pieces with pops of bursting orange and kelly green—an unlikely yet workable palette for the springtime. Metal tones made an appearance in the form of zippers on a blazer, buckles on loafers and stylish, yet big and sexy gold hoop earrings.

As we have entered the spring 2015 season, I gave this collection my attention and used it to inspire the look I created here. Wearing pieces I have worn before, but never together, this collection proved it could be a useful tool in reinventing my current wardrobe!

Inspired by the creamsicle orange moto jacket with zipper accents, I took mine in a pleather ivory and wore it over top of a pastel pink floral lace bodysuit. Though the pink is not in line with Lieberman’s A.L.C. color scheme, I just can’t resist pastels in the spring, especially when the weather is (gasp) above freezing. This aside, I paired these pieces with a classic knit harem pant in black and some basic black pumps to add a kick.

I finished off the look with metal accented jewelry in the form of gold oversized cross earrings and a hilariously conflicting gold chain necklace that features an oversized pentagram. I wore a hot pink lip and pastel blue nails to amplify my excitement for the looming springtime.

Get My Look: 1. A white moto jacket. 2. Comfy black harem pants. 3. Gold accents.
