The moment

Processed with Snapseed.

And they’re wed.  Yesterday was a busy day with the new Mrs. and finishing wedding-day touches.  From the perspective of styling, being a bridesmaid means you put your personal style on hold for a moment and allows you to act as an accessory to the bride’s look.  Thankfully, our dresses draped well on all of the girls body types and the rich plum color was so pretty.  Shoes and earrings were our way of adding in our personal touch to our outfits.  I choose a t-strap pair of suede, nude pumps and a classic pair of diamond studs.  And now, back to my non-matching look for my last 2 days in California.  More on Snapchat @thewrittenrunway.  Congrats on a beautiful day B! 

What’s your favorite part of being in a wedding?

Wedding wear

The bells are ringing!  Tomorrow is one of my bestie’s wedding dayyay congrats Briana & Jon.  A Southern California wedding in fall doesn’t necessarily mean colder temperatures.  In order to touch of fall-wedding style and not be overly dressed, I’m sharing a few weather and seasonally appropriate items for guests.  Look for a cocktail dress with sleeves.  I love the bohemian feel to these belled and flounced sleeves.  Also look for textures and colors that speak towards fall trends.  An assortment of jewel-tones are key.  For footwear, look for a suede, closed-toed or a dark colored pump that compliments your dress.  Keep your fall wedding style rich in color and texture.

Fall basics

twr-fall-basics-menswear-fall-2016

Let’s get basic.  There’s a few items that should be in every man’s fall closet—insert accessories, flannel shirts and a great weekend bag.  They key to making these items unique to you is in the fabric choices, the fit, and the color palette.  A flannel shirt is so obvious for fall and into winter.  Go beyond the traditional plaid flannel shirt, and choose a fabric and fit that lays well on your body type and appear effortless.  I really love the monochromatic look of this flannel with the pop of character in the contrasting buttons.  For your weekend bag, I really enjoy the distressed appeal of a two-tone, canvas and leather bag.  Pick a bag with pockets for toiletries, yet big enough to carry a few items and a laptop for easy travel.  Lastly, finish your look with accessories.  A beanie is a great way to keep warm and add a pop of color.  It also adds in depth with a contrasting knit fabric.  Eyewear is another great way to express your personal style.  The matte acetate and metal textiles of these glasses are great for everyday-wear.  Get your closet and your wardrobe ready for a complete turn to fall styling.

Travel light

I’m off!  Today, I’m back to California for on of my bestie’s weddings.  My key outfits rules when traveling are to wear non-wrinkling fabrics and keep it simple.  Shoes that quickly slip off are ideal.  Light-weight fabrics that can be layered up are good for unexpected climate changes.  And a single tote bag, that can even hold my purse, is a must.  Like with my everyday style, the less is more theory comes to play when traveling.  Nobody wants to lug around a bunch of things, let alone be a wrinkly mess in the meantime.  Get comfortable and casual when flying—which doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish!

2016 Emmys

That’s a wrap!  Yesterday marked the 68th annual Emmys‘ award show, in Los Angeles.  The red carpet, as always, was draped in an assortment of floor-sweeping gowns.  A few monochromatic looks took center stage, in crisp white, soft gold, deep red and emerald green shades.  The plunging neckline was a trending choice for stylists this season.  Silhouettes were either straight down the body or took on a softer appeal with a long train.  I really love the romance of the beaded looks on the red carpet.  Sign me up!

Boss

This… is where Proenza Schouler meets Lacoste.  Boss‘ Spring 2017 collection was so cool in color, style, and silhouette.  Although the silhouettes were relaxed and primarily shape-less, they set the tone for the statement details.  Vivid colors peeked through accordion pleats while other looks were a maze of layered monochromatic pieces.  This collections call for the woman who wants ease in a garment all while being sophisticated and fashion-forward.  Sign me up!
