Brim Meets the Neck

So, this look is fairly basic. There are no abstract prints, rocking fringe or over accessorized novelties. What makes this look a magnet of interest is the analogous color pallet (colors directly beside each other on the color wheel. In this case mine are blue, purple and fuchsia), extremely chic frame work and how the brim meets the hat.

Now, lets talk mysterious, shall we? Often times people feel one must have all the bells and whistles to emerge mystic. If that is you, allow me to redirect your thinking. Structure and fabric exaggerations are chosen’s as it relates to a more discrete description of mysterious. Alexander McQueen mastered this art. In the beginning of his career his textiles were extremely simple, but so loud. Of course, my style choice in this look is far from comparison. However, he like a few others are the creators of dramatic collars and turtle necks, before their over saturation in modern design.

This is my favorite sweater from Zara. I figured the turtle neck must be worn to hide my face. If not, I’d argue they should have designed it closer to my chest. With that being said, I gave my turtle neck sweater free reign to be worn by design. This was so perfect for the collaborative appeal my stiff brim hat needed to make me fashionably mysterious. Just the layout I envisioned. Obviously, my hat meeting the brim, aren’t the only collaborations, that has me fiercely mysterious. Eleven60 has my back with this studded trench. Alongside it, is my right-hand clutch, Rebecca Minkoff-studded and fringed.

Fashion improvising is here to stay! My Eloquii slacks are way too long (under my feet long) Click here .  For style sake, it was imperative that I remain committed to my color scheme and these killer struts for booties -which had to be seen. In order to execute my vision, I decided to rubber-band my slacks and tuck the balls. Doing so rendered a very Genie in a bottle, upper-fitted & lower-baggy affect. I think it adds a little urban street persona. This look will keep your chin tucked and eyes hidden with a mean strut. Remember, you are no prisoner of your body so strut the runway fiercely and fearlessly. See you next runway!


Fashion Tips:

A signature hat is a must. It adds to any style.

Don’t toss slacks that are too long or short, be creative.
