Casual Friday: Prints & Snapbacks

NYFW is coming up so soon!  While prepping for the coming Fashion Week, I started looking back at what I wore last Fashion Week.  I loved this eclectic mix of textures and prints and never got a chance to share it on the blog, so here it is!



I wore this look to the Yeohlee presentation (a cute garden-party theme) and then back at the main buildings later.  I wanted my outfit to feel fresh, young, and current so I mixed and matched pieces from my favorite designers to achieve that “I just threw this on!” feel.

White leather shorts from Mason were my starting point; they’re simple enough to work with anything, but the leather texture was hardly boring.  Next, I added a printed crop top from Porter Grey in soft green and blue tones to add some current trends to the mix: pastels and a lil midriff.  I love mixing prints and textures, so I contrasted my silky top with a chunky, graphic knit from Kenzo which I could wear either around my waist or over my shoulders.



Accessories are everything!  I grabbed an Olympia Le Tan book clutch (quickly becoming a classic wardrobe staple) and a printed snapback from Topshop to complete the look.  I wore the hat backwards as a chic way to keep my hair out of my face in the NYC heat!  Since this mix of prints and patterns was a lot of look, I opted for super-neutral Balenciaga riding boots instead of statement heels.



I want to capture this same vibe for next NYFW: polished and sophisticated, with a fresh urban edge.
