One of the biggest highlights from 2015’s New York Fashion Week was the introduction of Kanye West as a clothing designer. The Yeezy Season 1 ready to-wear collection was simple, but also included an army-esque feel. The monochromatic trend showcased in his line was of course adapted by all of the Kardashians/Jenners and spread quickly throughout the industry. When the Yeezy Season 2 ready-to-wear collection was introduced for spring 2016, we saw a more advanced version of the previous season. This collection included yet another monochromatic color palette, from beige to black. The pieces themselves were baggy, military-like but also very laid back with things like hooded sweatshirts and baseball caps.
I think one of the easiest outfits women can wear is all of one color. It’s timeless, classic and always looks put together. When I was putting together this outfit, I gathered inspiration from Kanye’s second season. The nude color palette he introduced looked very feminine, but with structured pieces it also showcased structure. I have always liked mixing masculine and feminine pieces in my outfits because I love tailoring and clean lines.
The coat I’m wearing definitely gives off a menswear vibe, but the soft, camel color does the opposite; not to mention every woman should have a camel coat in their wardrobe. I added this hat not only because of the winter season, but because of its similar color to my coat and the girly faux fur pom pom. I paired these two things with a basic sweater and ripped jeans to keep the laid back vibe similar to Yeezy Season 2, and, of course, the cheetah print flats to add flare and more of the nude color theme.
