STYLE GURU STYLE: Feminine Pastels

Hello Fashionistas and Fashionistos! As my favorite style inspiration, Audrey Hepburn, once said, “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.” Today, I would like to talk about channeling your inner elegance through feminine colors and styles. One designer that you can always count on to present collections full of fun colors and girly patterns is Kate Spade. I have always loved kate spade, but the fall 2015 ready-to-wear line especially caught my eye. This particular line is full of large coats, big bows and on a handful of looks–pink. All three of these things definitely inspired this look.

I started off with this light pink, patterned blouse. What I love most about this blouse is the bow on the front. I didn’t know if I could pull off wearing a bow, but this particular collection inspired me to. I am so glad, because I love it! I paired that blouse with my favorite pair of jeans which adds a touch of casual and comfort to this look. To block out the cold Chicago weather I threw on my favorite coat. The shape and buttons remind me of the coats in the kate spade fall 2015 collection. I also have to point out that these pointed toe flats, while very cute, are definitely not suitable for snow. (Don’t make the same mistake!). Finally, I topped this look off with a white knit hat and pulled everything together with these amazing earrings.

While I was very inspired by this particular collection, I decided to go the route of pastels rather than kate spade’s typical bright colors for my look. While the color scheme may be more subdued, the feminine feel is undeniably present. The possibilities are endless when it comes to where you could wear this outfit. Whether it be lunch with friends, a date or a family party, an outfit like this can make you feel elegant (but still comfy) anywhere.
