STYLE GURU STYLE: To Dye For

My style varies from very edgy or very boho.  After watching New York Fashion Week, I was intrigued by the combination of both genres of fashion creating the best of both worlds.

I was inspired by the Altuzarra spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection. This show featured beachy vibes with tie-dye prints and vivid colors, but also featured a more sophisticated, neutral look. Many different colors were used in this collection, but the burnt orange color really stuck out to me because it is unexpected for the spring season. I combined a few different aspects of the runway show to create this look.

I started off with an oversized, burnt orange, tie-dye tunic from Free People. I think that this top really encompassed the beachy aspect of the collection. In order to incorporate the more classy aspect, I paired the tunic with a black lace halter bralette. To finish it off, I kept it casual with distressed black jeans and black suede peep-toe booties (a great shoe for transitioning to warmer weather).

The different textures and layers of this outfit reflect the many materials and patterns that Joseph Altuzarra used in his collection.  He tried to use “no fuss” materials, or materials that are wrinkly or are easy to wear.  I transferred this idea into my hair. I styled it with natural, boho waves and pulled it back into a half-up half-down hairstyle similar to the runway models looks.  They also wore orange toned eye makeup, which I subtly used in my look.

Get My Look: 1. A tie-dye top. 2. A halter bralette. 3. Some distressed black skinny jeans. 4. A pair of black suede peep-toe booties.
