Whimsical Style Guide

Wondering how street style stars manage to get photographers’ attention? It all comes down to whimsical style that is unexpected, bold, and sophisticated. Motif-clashing, color-blocking, over-embellishing, textural experimentation and volume interplay are included in their strategies. The final goal is to stand out from the crowd. Check on the ‘how to’ and key pieces helping you to achieve it.  

Shades of Yellow

As many editors pointed out, yellow is among the colors of the Fall/Winter 2017 season. The bold military-inspired motif of the Zadig & Voltaire Tyard Camouflage Jacket includes a cool shade of yellow. The smooth & shiny texture of the Coach 1941 Space Cruisers Leather Trim Bomber Jacket is dipped into egg yoke yellow; a warm pop of color for any look. Yellow is equally impressive as a little hint among the rest of the florals in the Vanessa Bruno Helidie Watercolor Floral Print Silk Dress.

Sporty Luxe

Athleisure is still on, as a trend, and that elevates sporty outerwear into an actual fashion investment. A colorful fox fur detail makes the Maje Game Fur Trim Parka feel like a high-end weather-proof layer. The ribbon bow securing the hood of the Sandro Lilian Detachable Fox Fur-Trim Cropped Puffer adds a girly touch to your casual ensembles. Florals in the Maje Guela Floral Print Cropped Puffer are soft and romantic; a new undertone in sportswear.

Check & Argyle

The graphic allure of checks and argyles is totally appropriate for the winter season and the rustic feel seen in some of the current collections. An oversize piece of outerwear such as the Vince Car Check Oversize Wool-Blend Coat is a valuable update to your brisk weather wardrobe. Right underneath you can layer a bold and classic piece of knitwear; either the Sandro Jona Argyle Mohair-Blend Sweater or the Sandro Clara Checked Just Love U Wool Cardigan.

Ruffle & Flare

They are charming, eye-catching and ultra-feminine. Arranged in asymmetry, ruffles and flares create avant-garde silhouettes. The sexy off-the-shoulder neckline of the Self-Portrait Striped Asymmetric Ruffle Top is mixed with shirting long sleeves for a photographable balance of shapes.  Asymmetric ruffled and flared hems look amazing when in motion. The effect of the Ulla Johnson Maria Floral Tiered Ruffle Skirt is ethereal. For bohemian sophistication, the Vanessa Bruno Humeyra Wallflower Long Silk Skirt is equally mesmerizing.

24/7 Super Sleek

Often editors and other fashion insiders look enviably put-together and they more or less go that path through tailored silhouettes and monochrome combos. On weekends, slip into the luxe Maje Torina Velvet Sweatshirt . For a date or flirty moment, mix the Theory Off-the-Shoulder Long-Sleeve Leather Jacket with skinny jeans. And when in the office, there is nothing sleeker than the Maje Valaige Double-Breasted Jacket.
