Here's what you should wear today

15 March, 2010

So I’m creating a lookbook for you right now, and this is what I think you should wear today. Because I am running with the trend report and now showing you how to work with all of it. OK? OK, good.

So, remember way back when when I gave you a SS10 trend list? One of them was to buy a plaid shirt. This one is brand spankin’ new and cool.

Modern Western Wisdom, or something

And I know this plaid shirt would look good with dark denim. Because the shirt already has blue and white, making it appear to be light blue from a distance and up close, the contrast between the tones is much better to look at. Think of pairing blue and blue as always needing to contrast. The days of wearing matching denim jackets and jeans is waaaaayyyy gone, so don’t make it look like you’re not getting with the fashion program; understanding the rules of color coordination.  These Justing jeans are perfect. They’re a slimmer cut, which creates a nice silhouette with the tailored fit shirt.

These are boootcut, so you can still see your shoes. And they’re on sale, which may just be a deal-maker for me. I kind of like the shoes on the model, but I can find better. Hold on. Because I think we got some new gear in.

Now as much as I wanted to find some fancy pair of Juno or Mezlan shoes, I decided upon a pair of simple yet nice slip ons. Why you ask? Because the shirt has embroidery and plaid, and could be labeled as a strong statement. The jeans are nice, and by that, I mean no holes or extra embellishments. The simplicity of smooth leather and a standard heel allow the shirt to take center stage, but are still stylish enough to be paired with the clothing. These are Giorgio Brutini.
