Fall is officially here, but it is summer time in San Francisco, so I am still not ready to give up on bright colors! Watching the latest Chloe collection, I am so inspired by that Hippie Chic vibes that the famous fashion house is famous for.
If you want to experiment with the Hippie chic, start with something very easy, such as long ruffled dress ( mine is vintage 70’s) and platforms.
You can also play around with the silhouettes and proportions selecting extra flared jeans, and oversized flowy blouses.
Here is Chloe inspiration for you:

Check print is so hot right now starting with a classic jacket cut that has been spotted everywhere at the NYFW. I decided to give a second life to my 90’s dress jacket and pair it with a head to toe vintage. However, you can pair the check trend with almost everything and easily dress it down and dress it up. For instance, pair it with a ripped denim skirt and moto boots for that edgy look or with sequined jeans to glam up the classic cut. I created a couple of collages for your inspiration:

The gingham has been so popular Spring 17 and this Summer that you can see this print in any store and collection. I decided to pair my gingham Victoria Beckham x Target suit with the polka dot Jeffrey Campbell platform to bring some edginess to the very preppy and polished print. I would recommend pairing the graphic prints with a pop of color, for example, mega trendy red color to enhance the contrast. I also put together some of the outfits for you as a fresh perspective how to transition your gingham into Fall season:

You know that I am in love with the kimono trend recently because the kimono converts any outfit into relaxed, effortlessly chic one. Even at the hottest day in San Francisco (which is almost a nonsense) my vintage kimono was keeping me cold because of its silk and cotton blend. I would really recommend finding your perfect kimono in the local vintage stores because the quality of them is much higher than the modern ones. You can always find kimonos in a robe section in almost any thrift shop. For some runway inspirations, check out Gucci and Alice+Olivia:

Did you know that purple is the hardest color to photograph? As you can see from the pictures above, my suede vintage skirt seems to be cobalt blue but in real life, it is true purple. Today’s look is about the hottest trend of disappearing Summer-vacation stripes or red and white stripes. You can see them a lot at American runways, such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Michael Kors. There is no brainer that you can wear it with everything, but my suggestion would be pairing it with a solid bold color to enhance the boldness of the print. Enjoy some of the great inspirations from the runway and also check some of my favorite posts about stripes here and there.
