Street Style Inspiration of the Day
No doubt, this outfit has an awful lot going on. I can name four textures just looking at it off the top of my head (carpet-like wool, quilted nylon, velvet, spandex tights. It goes on and on. So how does it somehow work--and I think it does--is because each piece is a streamlined, contemporary shape. They could all be some weird draped fit or cut but they're all pretty classically cut meaning she can wear each piece without letting them wear her. Yes, she stands out, and yes her look attracts attention. But that's the best part about fashion. You can focus on what she's wearing instead of how crazy she looks in so many different pieces.
