Victorian Top + NYFW
Experimenting with new trends and styles as I work my way through NYFW SS18
New season new look! I never thought I'd see myself wearing anything close to green, but this olive green is doing the trick for me this fall. I've been selling my soul to Aritzia (where I got this entire look) in the last few weeks as I was putting together my looks for NYFW. They have some awesome pieces that will truly complete your closet goals!
Aside from trying out a new color, I also switched it up by actually wearing a print as well as sporting the victorian style ruffles and high neck. I love the frill details at the shoulders and how the blouse is just shear enough. It is a super feminine style that contrasts my usual modern and linear looks.
Let's move down to the pants. I love this style so much that I went back and bought the same pair in white and almost got them in an oxblood red. They are the business casual staple you NEED! Plus, Aritzia has them in basically every color, so I recommend stopping in store to see them all. They are extremely comfortable and make the look put together. I can't wait to create a street style look featuring these!
While both shows were very different, each of their purposes were clear. Sechs Element seemed to pull inspiration from the elements (fire, water, air, earth). The show was broken up into sections for each of the elements, which I thought was very cool and made it clear what the set of loks were supposed to be reflecting.
Katie Gallagher's presentation matched the fluidity of rain. The lighting was serene and erie, similar to the looks. I loves the shear pieces like the long, beaded dresses in the front. Definitely something I would wear! I loved how both shows drew inspiration from natural occurrances.
