How To: Wear Runway Looks in Real Life

Anyone that keeps up with the fashion world knows that New York Fashion Week just ended.  Of course we all have our favorite designers/looks but some garments can be questionable especially when it comes to everyday wear.  This post is specifically about How To: Wear Runway Looks in Real Life.

Runway Trend: Orange is the new Black

Let's just say we agree the orange on orange suit is a little too much but if you love pulling off a bold color try these tips.
1.Pair with a neutral color so you don't look like a crayon walking around the office
2. Wear black (you can never go wrong with black) and pair a pop pair of heels/clutch/or accessories with it.
3.If you are going to rock the orange lipstick first find a shade that compliments your skin tone. We don't want anyone to walk around looking like a clown. 

Runway Trend: Traveling Gypsy Goddess

We love mixing a good print with another good print, but we don't want you to look like a gypsy on an acid trip.  Although the three styles above are fabulously flawless, let's face it in the real world this is a little more "I got dressed in the dark" than "I saw this on NY runway".
Helpful tips
1.  Find prints that won't contradict each other too much.
2.  Pick a color scheme and you will pretty much be able to use any prints together. Picking a softer color scheme with a neutral color scheme is going to be easier.
3.  If you really want to go out of the box try mixing a floral printed bottom with a printed top (something simple like polka dots)
The best way to pull off mixing prints is to do it confidently!

Runway Trend: Heavy Metal

Face it: Metallics are back and they're coming with a shiny BANG!  We love the liquid gold look but we don't want you to look like you just came from a rave and may have possibly been attacked by a disco ball.

Here's a few helpful tips to keep in mind if you are ready to shine in metallics!
1.  Don't go too much metallic, trust us a little goes a long way.  Try pairing either metallic top with a solid bottom or vice versa.
2. Try a metallic nail and shimmery eye make up if you want to do a toned down metallic look
3.  Don't mix metallics with metallics they are fine on their own!
