Reminiscent on Renaissance

The Fall/Winter 2016 runways had us reminiscing on the renaissance era with the abundance of rich colors, draping and lavish materials. But let’s be honest, not many of us will be walking around looking like a renaissance princess on the daily. To convert these extravagant looks into something wearable, it’s important to break the trend down into simpler aspects. Personally, I love the detailed silhouettes of the sleeves and drapings which create beautiful movement. I chose to feature those elements along with a rich color story to give the outfit a fall feel. The burnt orange top cinches at the waist and provides a great contrast to the flow of the kimono. I styled the rest of the look with wine colored boots and a complementing leather bag.

Summer’s Best Accessory

Every now and then, a new accessory seems to become one of the biggest trends of the season. This summer bralettes are seen in almost every store you go into. They add a fun and creative touch to seemingly simple outfits. Whether it’s crossed straps or lace, bralettes add extra eye-catching detail to an outfit. But the best part is how comfortable they are! I wore mine with a simple black dress as an accessory for when I want to take off the patterned kimono. I also added one of my favorite statement necklaces and strappy black heels.
