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:

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:

A while ago I was very shy to use print on print but after last Prada’s collection, I was inspired so much by the daring, bold combinations that were weirdly pleasant and calming to the eye. If you want to use print on print and make it all come together harmoniously, you should use a formula: one print treated as a basic color+another as a complimentary. For instance, in my look, I treated leopard print as a basic color and stripes as a print itself and this clash created a calm, yet bold combination. I tried experimenting with the leopard print a while ago, but I think it was a much obvious combination. What do you think? If you need some inspirations, check out runway:
shoes: Asos, found them on their 70% sale!
socks: Monki from Asos

Florals are so expected to be worn in summer, but there are thousands of ways to wear it unexpectedly. I am a big fan of Alessandro Michele’s politics toward new collections of Gucci house: a dash of vintage vibes, modern cuts and print on print, especially florals on florals or florals on an animal pattern. As you know, I like matching things and for me combining botanical print is the optimal solution for the unconventional way to wear print. I was inspired by a couple of gorgeous examples from the runway:
Sandals- Steve Maden

For almost a decade matching accessories or assemblies were considered a bad taste. As many mismatching things that harmoniously are put together the more stylish it was. However, with the adaptation of the aesthetics of the 80s, matchings sets are making a comeback. I am a big fan of how Jeremy Scott does it for Moschino and Dolce and Gabanna for their last collection. The key here, to create a story behind the outfit and keep it within a theme. I will leave you with inspiration from Moschino and DG:
Shirt- Vintage male denim shirt, something similar here
Pants- Anne Klein
Belt- Vintage, similar here
Boots- vintage, similar here

I am obsessed with Advanced Style blog. If you have never heard about Iris Apfel and Valerie Von Sabel you definitely need to check out this blog that captures bold and elegant style of older New Yorkers. It is interesting that the older fashionistas have more courage to mix prints and wear bright accessories. That courage makes their style unique and unrepeatable; what is impossible to say about “style” perception that we have nowadays. I feel that we assume that “style” is a synonym for “hype”. That is why Pinterest and Instagram are full of Kardashian family clones that look the same.
My today’s look was inspired by the way Advance style ladies mix prints, according to certain rules:
2.Fabric has to match (wool with heavier textures, silk or chiffon with lighter)
3. Add a resting point ( a part of your outfit where an eye can rest, in my case the rest point are my shoes)
Enjoy some inspirations from Advanced Style:
pants- Forever 21, similar here
ear cuffs- ASOS, similar here
