This season is all about mixing and matching both colour and pattern, and the latest collection from Proenza Schouler shows off this trend perfectly.
The Core Outfit
The green snake print combined with the bright neon yellow is a fantastically unique combination, not to mention the perforated leather skirt, which adds a sporty element to the ensemble. As pretty and colourful as this outfit is, the overall look has a masculine feel to it, with boxy cuts on the shoulders and clean straight lines on the skirt.
These fun, light-coloured oversized sunglasses are the feature piece of this outfit, working so well with any vibrant outfit. The minty green gradient on the lenses and the spacing between the frame and lenses give it a modern, cool factor. And we didn’t choose oversized sunglasses for any old reason – celebrities love this style for its high amount of face coverage and the chic factor it provides.
As an alternative to the standard high heels, consider wearing a pair of perforated leather booties to create a tough chic look. The fact that these shoes can complement a number of outfits from jeans to dresses makes them a great option also.
To finish off the look, go for a small, boxy Valentino clutch. Why? Because no one will mess with you holding a spiked bag like that!
We suggest keeping your face au naturel – well, not quite that extreme. But do go for something simple because the outfit already has such bold colours and prints. Use a highlighter on the cheekbones to give your face a dewy look, a bit of nude gloss for the lips, and a thin line of dark blue eyeliner (which makes your eyes pop and the whites of your eyes appear brighter).
