STYLE GURU STYLE: Playful Patterns

July 13th, 2015 at 2:10am

Searching through the latest runway trends has become one of my favorite pasttimes this summer. Among all the trends I stumbled upon, Tory Burch’s fun patterns and vibrant colors in her 2015 ready-to-wear collection stuck out the most to me.

A simple floral design has always been my go-to pattern to mix and match into my outfits. Especially during the summertime, this pattern’s presence is huge. I am also very fond of the oversized shape of the shirt, allowing it to be the center of the outfit. I decided to pair this top with a simple black pair of runner shorts. The simplicity accentuates every detail that the shirt displays.

I decided to test out another trend as well. Colored eyeliner is making a huge statement this summer. I chose to go with a blue liner, vamping up the color scheme within the floral pattern. It was hard to choose one color to purchase because of the wonderful variety Sephora had. It is important to choose a specific color to focus on in order to perfectly acccent the mixture of colors.

This look is easy to make your own. A floral pattern isn’t the only type of design you can play with. Tribal print is still a very popular choice in the fashion world. Pick fun colors to mix into your outfit, making sure there is a main focus within your outfit. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and try a trend you haven’t before.
