STYLE GURU STYLE: Go Your Own Way

“Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac is the best song to describe my outfit. When it comes to summer style, it’s all about infusing the ‘70s vibe with a modern twist. Take a risk with paisley prints. Zimmermann’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection made the paisley trend fit, fun and functional to suit anyone’s style.

As a statement piece, I wanted the paisley shirt to stand out. Wearing black and white not only did just that but also, it added a modern appeal. During my vacation in the streets of San Francisco, I found Wallflower, a vintage store with clothing from all decades. I found my coveted purchase, the paisley shirt. I couldn’t resist trying out the groovy ‘70s trend for myself. Also, I recommend finding these pieces at vintage, consignment and thrift stores. Use your fashion intuition and the thrill of clothes hunting will never get old.

Summer is the right season to try different prints and express yourself at the same time. I threw on my personal style essentials such as the Dimepiece hat, black skinnies and leather jacket. They totally complemented the paisley pattern. Wearing a dress shirt has never been so comfortable until now.

The combination of paisley’s earthy tones and edgy black leather is the reason why opposites attract. In addition, the fringed cross-body bag mixes the two trends perfectly. In its entirety, the whole outfit balances itself out. Using ‘70s inspiration can have you feel like Stevie Nicks in no time. Fashionistas, don’t waste your chance. If you’re going to a bonfire, try this look out.

Be inspired by the ‘70s to have a summer full of peace and love, baby.
