Okay, lets be brutally honest with each other…high fashion is great for inspiration + seeking out the “hottest” trends of the season. On the other hand, it’s not the easiest to transition in to an everyday look, unless you are Olivia Palermo. (I wish…) NYFW designers brought us trends that had our blood pumping. At the same time, fashionistas around the world were left asking questions like, “Where can I get that?… How can I pull this look off without looking ridiculous???…. Can I even pull this off?!?” Don’t worry, we have all been there more than we may like to admit.
Over the weekend, I was asked to continue with ideas + tips on how to pull off this Fall’s more “complex” trends. So here it is! The 70’s trends are still in full swing: platforms, flare-leg jeans, chokers…. truly the list goes on. My personal top three favorite trends this season are the tie-neck blouse, statement sleeves + “liquid metal” anything. So for this look I decided to knock out THREE birds with one stone. (Why not)
When I was creating this look I wanted it to be something I could see myself wearing to a date or a night on the town. I am an avid collector of vintage clothes so this denim tie neck blouse I scored a few years ago was my go to piece. Not only because it has a tie neck, but it also has oversized sleeves. Which in my opinion is a plus! Denim is casual in nature, but neutral enough to dress up or down. So think about it this way, you can dress up a pair of jeans, so when playing with a denim shirt it’s the same thing.

I chose to dress the blouse up because the liquid-metal pants are for sure a statement piece. I suggest trying something neutral (i.e. Denim Blouse) to start if you plan on taking this liquid-metal trend for a spin. So here is my tip, unless you are a pro at mixing patterns or textiles, don’t pick something crazy the first go around. No one wants to look clownish + you will if you try to mix patterns with a blouse that ties a bow around your neck. (You will thank me later). Throw on some fun pumps + you are good to go!
