Shine Bright Like a (Pink) Diamond


Street style, especially NY street style, is such a great source of inspiration! Take this look, for example. I was in SoHo the other day when I saw this incredibly chic (European, I assumed) woman wearing an oversized silver jacket. I never thought that I would find anything like it in the US, until I came across this very similar style at Nordstrom.


The jacket is definitely an eye-catching statement piece. It can be dressed up (with an otherwise all black outfit, for example) or down, as it is here with distressed jeans like these from H&M. For this look I kept rest of the details on the classic side, like this simple grey cashmere turtleneck and lady-like pink accessories like this clutch and these shoes (similar here and here) to match the pink faux shearling on the jacket.


My fashion inspiration wore her silver jacket with baggy jeans, flat booties, and retro cat-eye glasses – a super edgy, quirky look that fit her perfectly. I could never pull that exact look off, but that’s the point.    Fashion inspirations, like any other inspiration, should be appropriated and personalized, but never copied (even if they are reeeeeeallly good). Do you, but try to do it well.

Every once in a while I wear color, and when I do, I go all out. This look is stolen from the Gucci Resort 2016 runway, and it perfectly captures the whimsy and boldness that creative director Alessandro Michele is known for (check out my homage to the designer here). It also combines some of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2016, including pleated midi skirts, stripes, and metallics. I’m a big fan of these metallic pumps that give the look that quirky vibe that I love, but I could easily imagine wearing a striped dress with a simple pair of metallic pumps like these, or strappy metallic sandals like these, or my favorite Gucci mules. Because dresses in bright colors and stripes are eye-poppers, I generally think less is more when it comes to accessorizing. For this look, however, I went with a statement bag. Because if you’re going to be a rainbow girl, the sky is your limit.
