STYLE GURU STYLE: Trench(ing) the Outdoors

March 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

Seeing as how spring is right around the corner (we can only hope), looking at spring and summer fashion is the only thing getting me through this terribly snowy winter. One show in particular stood out to me. Michael Kors spring 2015 ready-to-wear fashion show was simple and genius. His clothes embodied everything spring has to offer. After seeing the light neutral colors to floral prints, I couldn’t be more excited. He took ‘60s style outfits and revamped them to get a 21st century vibe. He added yellows and navies to his mostly neutral line, which emphasized his ‘60s inspiration. A few major trends he had were long skater skirts, trench coats and cuffed pants. All of these looks are easily relatable and can be found on college campuses around the globe.

Today, I decided to put Kors’s looks to the test with a classic, nude trench coat, cuffed jeans, booties and the obligatory Michael Kors mini bag. I love timeless outfits that never go out of style, which makes Kors’s collection so purchasable. Even if it’s a little bit more expensive, customers will still buy it because of its timelessness. I love the cuffed jean trend because you can pull it off during any season. In the winter, you can pair them with booties like I did or with sandals during the warmer months. The classic trench coat is also a staple that has been reworked many times. Kors is able to still keep the concept but change the buttons to add a different flare.

This show reminds me that simplistic and natural beauty never goes out of style. In a world where bigger is better, Kors reminds us the stripped down version of ourselves is our best selves.

Get My Look: 1. Trench coat. 2. Cuffed jeans. 3. Mini bag or clutch.
