STYLE GURU STYLE: Fenty x Puma x Me

March 30th, 2016 at 2:10am

I was more than excited to see Rihanna’s collaboration with Puma. Rihanna, being one of my favorite artists, did an exceptionally amazing job. The collection was filled with a monochromatic color scheme. Rihanna’s street style was perfectly represented in the collection. It featured sweatpants and sweatshirts that can be paired together effortlessly and without thought. We cannot forget the signature laceless sneakers, which are trailing right behind Kanye West’s Yeezys.

This collection spoke to me a lot, which means I had to recreate it. I wanted to mimic the monochromatic theme Rihanna included in her collection. Being a fan of black and white clothing, it was second nature putting together this outfit. I took inspiration from the loose fitted tops that seemed to be a main focus in the collection. Since I could not add paint to my hair, even though I wish I could, I went with a simple braided hairstyle. This is my favorite look, because it is simple, yet cute and enough to catch your attention. I recommend playing with funky hairstyles when rocking a simple look like this one.

A lot of my daily style involves black and white. I love being effortless, but also put together. My favorite formula to achieving this is: sweatshirt + jeans + sneakers. The attention in your outfit needs to be evenly distributed rather than focusing on one main aspect. Color also plays an important role in diluting attention. Flashy colors like red or yellow can throw off the entire outfit. It is also important to have equal distribution of color. Play around with black and white, you never know what you might create!

Get My Look: 1. Any loose fitted top or sweatshirt. 2. Any pair of blue jeans. 3. Sneakers of your choice.
