STYLE GURU STYLE: Mismatched Magic

STYLE GURU STYLE: Mismatched Magic

Flamingos, tigers, florals- oh my! The Giamba Resort 2017 collection was packed with colorful prints and delicate lace- the perfect combo for any get away. The collection embodied youth and fun with its mismatched prints, funky layers and the glittery heels that complemented each ensemble. The outfits were paired with minimal makeup and the slicked back hair that fashion has been loving lately. Personally, I prefer to let my hair dry and pull it back in braids. Messy hair is my go-to and it pairs oh so well with the carefree look of this collection.

My favorite outfit from the collection featured a striped babydoll dress with delicate flower details. What really added to this simple piece was the sheer top that the dress was layered over. This style is trending right now and for good reason! Layering a dress over a top is the perfect way to switch up your wardrobe in one simple step! The extra layer adds style and just a little more warmth as summer comes to an end and the temperatures get a little cooler.

Whether you’re strolling down the boardwalk or rushing off to your first day of class, making use of fun patterns and layers will help you look extra chic. Don’t be afraid to mix textures and colors! These are my rules for putting together a magically mismatched outfit: pick one statement piece, like the floral two piece I’m wearing here, and then pick a subtle color from that piece to be the main color of your second layer. As far as shoes go, take a risk! As long as you pick a color that is somewhere in your outfit, you can’t go wrong! Have fun making funky outfits and stay #RAD!
