STYLE GURU STYLE: Giving Off Cold Shoulders

June 5th, 2016 at 2:00am

Summer is the perfect season to show some skin. Don’t get too carried away… I am just talking about your shoulders. New York summers are very hot so it is important for me to find creative ways to cool off that are still stylish.

I am currently obsessing over Zuhair Murad’s spring 2016 Couture collection. It is filled with pastel colors, white lace and off-the-shoulder pieces. My inspiration for this look came from this runway show.

This look has some of my favorite staple pieces for the summer. Right now a good platform sandal is my go-to shoe for the summer. Both comfortable for the feet when I know I will be on them all day, yet so trendy. Gold is also my pick for shoe colors this summer. So chic and perfect all summer long!

I am a white skirt connoisseur. I love how easy it is to throw on a detailed white skirt with any fun blouse or top. Tucked in, tied up or left out these tops will stand out against a white skirt background. I chose to add a striped pastel blouse over my skirt. The off-the-shoulder style is one of my favorite trends this summer because I love how elegant it is to show off your shoulder while also being able to stay cool in the warm weather.

My favorite part of getting dressed is seeing how I can spice up my classic pieces with fun accessories. I added my staple tortoise shell sunglasses and double pearl earrings. I can’t leave home without them! To complement these earrings I added a chunky pearl bracelet. Never forget to add your own touch with fun accessories that speak to your own personal style.

Zuhair Murad’s spring 2016 collection embodies so many things I love about my style: feminine styles, pastel colors and a touch of class.
