HOW TO wear the runway

Designers define the style, start the trends, and kick off the desires of every fashion loving girl (and boy) around. The problem is, the items on the runway are rarely wearable in the real world. But they give us inspiration, and tell us what to (and not to) wear. Interpreting the runway is a personal thing. Most blogs will tell you how to get the same look for less. The problem to me is, it's still not wearable. So not only do I reinterpret it differently, but many of the items you may have in your closet from a previous season. Add a trip to your local thrift store or Target, and you will be set for the season!

This season's must have color tone is 'seafoam' ranging in shades from mint green to soft blue, its easy to find and pair for any style. Here are some great runway examples from left to right: Vera Wang, Tibi, Rodarte, and Tory Burch.

HOW TO wear the runway

Here's how I interpret the runway:

A. Inspired from Vera Wang, This long sheer sea foam dress leaves you comfortable in the summer heat, classically beautiful for any occasion, and sophistcatedly sexy. Pair with the seasons must have accessory: gold, and you will be the talk of the town.

B. Inspired by Tory Burch, I've opted for a shorter bright blue dress with a loose fit for the summer breeze, and great for any body type and showing off a little leg. Layer your gold with necklaces, bracelets and beautiful gladiator heels for a natural beauty look, with bold statement for a lunch date, or a day of shopping.

C. Inspired from Rodarte, this beautiful bright mint dress, paired with a great contrasting blue belt and shrug when the sun goes down, perfect for a night on the town looking flirty.

D. Inspired by Tibi, this simple ensemble is great for running errands, or a day at the office. A tight fitting cardigan in mint green with pastel trousers, makes a great outfit for days when comfort is key. Keep your tones pastel and contrasting to add drama, steer clear of prints to give maximum affect, and make sure the leg is wide or flared to stay trendy!

Your turn. How do you wear the runway? Leave me a comment or send me a picture!
