STYLE GURU STYLE: Moroccan Madness

Tory Burch was inspired by intricate Moroccan prints in her fall 2015 ready-to-wear show a few weeks ago during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. The lines and cuts of the clothes screamed 1970s while the prints, fabrics and colors showcased the best Morocco has to offer. The collection started with mild blues and creams on long, flowy pieces then transitioned into a more vibrant color scheme of rust, crimson, marsala and gold. The colors and patterns were so rich and exotic and paired so well with the style of the ‘70s. It certainly left this Fashionista craving to fill her closet with tapestry printed caftans, blouses and coats. In this show, Tory Burch showed how one can take something bold and exotic and make it work for everyday wear.

Since I am a bit lacking on the availability of tapestry prints in my wardrobe (a situation that must be rectified immediately), I pulled a more Southwestern-inspired printed shrug as the exotic influence in my ensemble. I kept my base layer of jeans and a white T-shirt simple, as seen in the show, and accessorized to enhance the exotic feel of the look; a long, gold necklace, brown fedora and bag with a fur tail detail.

This show really opened my eyes to how there is something about these looks that makes you feel so inherently beautiful and mysterious when you try things more exotic. This is a look I definitely recommend when you need a pick-me-up to get you through the day.

Get My Look: 1. Printed cardigan. 2. A brown fedora. 3. A long, gold necklace.
