Look of the Day [Travel 2012]
So here’s the dilemma: I will finish styling the last show for Mobile Fashion Week next Saturday, and then hit the road as soon as we finish to catch the plane to Paris. The beauty is that this season is full of items that are interchangeable to create amazing looks, with a few key pieces. What better way than to mix higher end pieces with affordable items that have great sustainability.
The featured piece is this jacket I have from last season that BCBG has re-created for Fall 2012. My version is created with a wool blend, so unbuttoned, its not too hot. Buttoned up-its perfectly warm! The jacket’s versatility allows it to go from being paired with denim, to being paired with a pencil skirt and slingback pumps.
The Lespring Messenger is the perfect, cross body travel bag. It can be carried by the handle or worn with the strap. It carries an iPad, iPhone, camera, passport and license and small toiletries perfectly.
Two great buys: Forever 21’s skinny denim, and Mossimo’s ballet flats. Both items retail for under $20, but are excellent pieces to mix. The jeans aren’t too bulky and work well with tunics, shorter dresses, and layered looks, because the denim is crafted to be thinner. The jeans come in a variety of washes [a dark gray is featured here]. The ballet flats also come in numerous colors; depending on your need for support for long days, inserts may need to be considered.
Best of all, the items effortlessly represent Pantone’s color trends for the Fall.
