Today’s Faux-Pas, Tomorrow’s Fashion

Conventional fashion wisdom would forbid you to mix a mid-length lace trim skirt with a sweater-dress and a long Mao-collar coat. However, I believe the first rule in fashion is that there are no rules. Instead, have fun experimenting, make “mistakes” and learn from them. It was with this spirit that I explore the minimalist and edgy style. It is turning out to be quite a challenge. Colors or patterns often define the outfit. So, how to create a striking look while down-playing these two elements. The answer lies in working with the cut, details and finish. Here I paid attention to matching my shoes to the shades of the top and contrasting the sweater’s knit with the skirt’s lace trim. Hate to say it, but often there is more thought behind an outfit than meets the eye.
