Simply Chic

Today marks the last day of Fashion Month! Designers have journeyed through the cities of New York, London, Milan, and Paris to unveil their latest collections. We, as enthusiasts and consumers, get the privilege of observing the trajectory of trends for the Spring and Summer 2018.

I noticed reoccurring themes of layers, knitted fabrics, large shoulder pads, plastic overlays, and unsuspecting lines. Many like Comme des Garçon, Maison Margiela, and Gareth Pugh pushed the envelope while Chanel, Tom Ford, and Burberry stuck closely to the classic styles they know well.

Avant-garde clothing is a true expression of art. It’s a glimpse into a creatively genius mind. Dissecting such clothing and placing significance on each piece can be laborious. To cleanse the palate, I enjoy viewing classic designs. Clean lines, minimalism, and staple pieces have a great place in my heart.

For this look, I wanted the ensemble to reflect the beauty of simplicity in fashion. The tweed skirt gives a nod to the iconic work of Chanel while the black mock neck top and black pumps uphold the classic style.

REAL LIFE APPLICATION

Classic clothing is the safest way to make an impression. I am the greatest advocate of self-expression and making a scene. Though, at times, it’s best to play it safe.classic styles will always win over the conventional, traditional crowd.

For an interview, networking event, or consultation dress simple and straightforward. Classic styles will always win over the conventional, traditional crowd. I don’t like this standard, but you have to play the rules to get ahead in such arenas.

I like black, but you could also swap out the top and shoes with a bright color and add a statement necklace. Whatever styling options you chose, shine brightly in your chic ensemble!
