Now, I don't make the money to buy a thread that feel off of one of these pieces but I can take ideas, theories and snippets of each look and apply it to the real world choices that are comparatively more plain but wearable. To get the most out of watching the unwearable runway looks, you want to really understand how to break them down and take away one or two features. Take this fabulous look for example, it isn't exactly everyday that you can wear a sheer skirt, where only embroidered vines cover your nether regions, at least not without getting some very strange looks and maybe a citation or two.
What can we take away from this look to wear in real life?
(pick one or two features to add to your own more wearable look)
- Bamboo like vegitation in patterns; clean lined organics rather than frilly florals
- Rich, deep, saturated colors with shine
- Abundant fabric in the pieces of the outfit. Add pieces in your look that wrap, gather and pleat.
- Illusion/sheer fabrics,
- V-necks that are more conservative like this over stated portrait neckline with sleeves and a fold over collar.
- One color throughout the entire outfit. Using pattern and texture in the single color, to create interest throughout your own look
- Long sleeves
- Satins, silks and reflective fabrics
- Texture and detail throughout the look
- Feminine fabrics and touches with structured shapes and cuts
- Body hugging shape
- Wrapped shoes
- Ballet inspired shoes
- Minimal accessories
