STYLE GURU STYLE: Mod About You

If you’re on this website, then odds are you’re somewhat into fashion. If you’re somewhat into fashion, you’re definitely aware that 2015 was a total revival of the ‘70s. Flare pants, peasant tops and clogs graced the streets and runways for the vast majority of the year. I bid this trend a great adieu as the next big thing of 2016 emerges–‘60s. Yes, quite original. I don’t create these trends. I just discuss them—and splurge on all the key pieces needed to embody them. The spring 2016 runways were rife with shift dresses, turtlenecks, mini skirts and patent leather booties. Courrèges was a personal favorite. Their spring 2016 show was a complete modern revival of the age of hairspray and had me wishing I were Twiggy (which is a frequent occurrence).

My personal style at large is inspired by the ‘60s so you could imagine my excitement toward this trend picking up speed. My look in the photos above really looked to the cuts and silhouettes–square and shifts. Slightly boyish, yet still feminine and fun, I paired a cream shift dress with patent leather crocodile pockets alongside my favorite black booties (the little heal lengthens the leg and complements the boxy shape of the dress) and a classic tassel cross-body that provided a nice pop of color. Compelled to add a personal, “signature” touch, I tied a black silk ribbon around my neck to mimic the look of a thick choker and bow-back dress. If you don’t own a silk black ribbon I suggest you go buy one like, now.
