STYLE GURU STYLE: Sophistication Made Simple

Finding ways to make every day outfits stand out can be challenging. There are many ways to add flare to a look, but finding the right balance is critical. Sleek, simple designs that are still edgy are right up Joseph Altuzarra’s alley. You never know just quite what you are going to see with him, which I love. However, his collections are known to have revealing and suggestive aspects but they are always done in an incredibly classy manner. The Altuzarra spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection did not fall short of this.

Look four was my choice of inspiration. Many pieces in the collection were high-waisted and belted, so I started with my simple black jeans. I went for a more casual button-up that does not have a collar and is very lightweight, making the look more laid back. I kept the color scheme by using pink as my pop of color within the belt and in my single strap heels. All of his looks are crisp and clean, just all-around well put together. This is what I was going for when choosing black and white clothing with just one accent color. I added pink and gold dangly earrings that makes the eye follow the pop color from head to toe. Altuzarra used a bold earring in this collection as well. I have always admired heels paired with casual clothing. When accessorized right, this style can be an effortless, sophisticated look.

Get My Look: 1. Black high-waisted jeans. 2. Casual button-down. 3. Heels.
