STYLE GURU STYLE: Consistently Colorful

Miu Miu’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection is an explosion of color. The collection includes playful patterns and unexpected textures. Miu Miu’s collection stood out because it’s the complete opposite of what one would expect from a typical fall collection. Average fall colors such as the dark browns and mustard yellows were no where to be found. Instead, turquoises and vibrant oranges plastered the models. The wide variety of patterns made me more surprised by each look.

Miu Miu’s collection made me take a step back and question the societal norms and the fashion industry as a whole. Why do we feel compelled to wear certain colors during different seasons? Why was I so intrigued that Miu Miu designed a brightly colored collection meant for a colder season? I began to realize how interesting it is that we have all of these unspoken rules and expectations in the world of fashion.

Miu’s Miu’s collection sparked my inspiration. I took idea of Miu Miu’s designs and adjusted the collection to my own style. Although I was originally inspired by the collection due to its bright colors and crazy patterns, I decided to tone my look down a notch so that it was more wearable for my personal taste.

I paired navy patterned jeans along with a white chunky sweater. I layered the sweater with a bold statement necklace. I believe that the unique colorful necklace and patterned pants adds liveliness to the look. I tried to capture the playfulness that Mui Mui kept constant throughout his collection. For shoes, I am wearing glossy maroon heels.

Get My Look: 1. Patterned pants. 2. White sweater. 3. Statement necklace.
