STYLE GURU STYLE: Rock ‘n’ Roll

If there is something to know about the fashion world, it is that when one season begins, the other is just around the corner. Though fall just began, the creative minds behind the fashion world as we know it came together to showcase fall 2015’s ready-to-wear fashion this past spring. From names like Michael Kors to Gucci to Givenchy, these designers did not disappoint with the array of chic looks. With some of the most stunning looks yet, it is no wonder why the season of fall is so highly anticipated each year.

However out of the many, there is one line that caught my eye. I like to consider myself a minimalist, so crazy patterns and bright colors are just not my thing. There is something about this line though that used bold colors, patterns and textures to utter perfection. I was in awe as I perused through the gallery of chic and elegant designs with patterns galore. This line was no other than alice + olivia’s. From turtlenecks to knee-high boots to faux fur, this line took a spin on fall essentials with the use of gorgeous patterned and textured fabrics to create some of the most wearable looks this season. However, what truly inspired me was the ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll vibe this line channeled beautifully without making it too noticeable or kitschy.

Like I said before, I like to see myself as a minimalist so I was faced with a challenge. How could I channel this look without the bold colors or patterns? How could I make this look my own to sport any day of the week? Inspired by alice + olivia’s line, I took my take on a ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll vibe. While incorporating some of falls essentials such as a turtleneck, stockings and leather booties, I added my own flair to transform this runway style to a street style. I chose to use the turtleneck as my way of adding color and texture. I paired the entire outfit with a faux leather jacket, a retro pair of shades and a subtle makeup look to add more of an emphasis on the rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
