On the eve of The Lego Movie, we revisit fashion’s colourful obsession.
Feel the need for a little fashion adventurism? You’re in luck. Thanks to the abundance of street style looks that came from fashion month, we spotted a crop of ladies donning a '60s style staple: the flared trouser. Sure, we’ve all owned and worn a pair of flared jeans, but we dare you to try out a trouser iteration, ideally in a pop of colour or bold print.
They just might be fashion's ultimate odd couple. Yet somehow, their high-low love affair feels so right. Chances are you already have both pieces in your wardrobe, it's just a matter of putting the two together. Sit back, relax, and let the street style stars show you how it's done.
Let's say you want a sweater that makes a statement, but embellishments feel too showy and graphics aren’t your bag. The solution is simple: try a mohair cardigan or angora pullover on for size. It’s an of-the-moment look that’s equal doses fashion and fluff.
The office. First dates. Brunch. Not every occasion calls for look-at-me accessories. The solution? Dial it back with a pair of monogrammed studs or cute posts. Tiny earrings are a great way to inject a dose of idiosyncratic style into an otherwise understated ensemble. And they’re perfect for mixing and matching, as well as second piercings. Good things come in small packages, indeed.
Rejoice! The most arbitrary fashion rule in history (“No white after Labour Day”) has finally collapsed under the weight of its own absurdity. Nowadays, designers incorporate the colour into their collections year round and the results —especially in the accessories department —couldn’t be sweeter.
Do you love your legs but feel less than confident about your right to bare arms? Well then, exciting news. With long-sleeved minis poised to be one of fall’s defining silhouettes, your style moment has (finally) arrived.
