STYLE GURU STYLE: Trends Are Stayin' Alive

Trends come and go, and it is no doubt that certain ones make their comebacks on the fashion runways. This past season, the bohemian style, inspired by the 1960s and 1970s, made a huge impact and is making its way back into the closets of Fashionistas/os of all ages. Designers like Burberry and Zimmerman inspired many, including myself, to recreate this throwback look.

This look, in particular, was inspired by Zimmerman’s ready-to-wear fall 2015 collection, which featured a mix of jeweled tones and neutrals, as well as various patterns and bold wool hats.

My look played with the use of layering basic, closet staples. I began with a neutralized white and black striped dress. This fundamental piece is great for nearly any style, as it allows you to create so many different looks, granting endless possibilities. Next, I paired the look with yet another staple, a longline black sweater, which I placed underneath this army green vest. The vest adds a pop of subtle color, and is a great way to get a layered look on a warmer day. The floral scarf ties in with the pattern mixing trend, as well as the polka dot tights. Although the look contains three different patterns (stripes, floral and polka dots), it all ties together, as the neutral black is picked up in each, and allows for a more wearable and cohesive look. To truly tie everything together, I added a camel colored leather belt, in order to create a waistline amongst all of the layers, a brown wool hat, a bold red lip and a pair of gold studded booties.

Overall, this mixed patterned, bohemian look is very true to my personal style, whilst still keeping on trend.
