I love a good runway look to use as a little inspiration for 'how to wear' the latest trends in fashion. I can pull from collections of Fashion Past, or in this case, the most recent round of Resort picks that hit for 2013, to re-create a look that came directly from the mind of some of our most creative fashion minds out there, in this case, Max Azria and BCBG.
Now on to the details. How to get the look, and where to buy all the little goodies along the way. I boil it down for you in the shop-by-number montage:
1. Juicy Couture Easy Summer Silk Maxi Dress (shop online: www.bloomingdales.com) 2. Sass & Bide A Matter Of Fact Jacket (shop online: www.us.asos.com) 3. BCBGMAXAZRIA Two-Way Sequin Oversized Clutch (shop online: www.6pm.com) 4. POLLINI Platform sandals (shop online: www.yoox.com)
The loose maxi dress works back to a pulled together blazer to create this soft/tough contrast that I have a habit of being drawn towards in fashion. The interplay between masculine and feminine is a personal love of mine, but evidently, based on BCBG Max Azria's Resort 2013 collection, I'm not alone. I'm in really, no really really, good company. The rest of the look comes together in a few simple steps that throw in a couple of essential accessories from a pair of Pollini platform sandals with a blue streak, to an oversized bronze clutch to keep the metallic hues in the fashion picture.
All in all, an easy look that works well for day (sans jacket, and sub in some lower sandals) and night. You've gotta love a little versatility right?
