Another fashion collage I made via Polyvore. Love that website! I spent some time exploring new parts of the city today; So, this look is really inspired by street fashion. It uses a funky pattern and bright pops of color. The style of the shoes and hat give it an urban feel. The sleek, fitted solid black crop top adds a bit more order to this crazy style. The shoes and hat coordinate with the colors in the print, but I kept them solid so that the focus of the outfit remains the leggings.
This summer bright colors and patterns are must-haves. They must be styled correctly, and it is really easy to go wrong when playing with these fun fashions. While pairing patterns is a huge trend this summer, I wouldn't do I patterned top with this outfit because all of the bright colors would make the outfit too busy. These pants are really funky and different. They are more of a statement piece, than a pattern to pair with other patterns. For example, you couldn't really pull off pairing these leggings with a floral print top. They are a great piece, and I really love the way they are the center of this outfit.
I would keep the makeup pretty simple with this outfit. Most likely doing a natural lip and eye with a bright pop of hot pink in the inner corner of the eye. I would keep the hair down, loose, and wavy. If it was sunny, I would add a pair of aviators, just simply maybe a gold frame. I would keep the jewelry to a minimum. Again, I really love these pants as a statement piece. I want them to be the center of the outfit. So, I don't want to emphasize them and not add a lot that distracts from them.
