STL Series: Keep It Simple

 
 

The minimalist trend hit the runways in a BIG way this spring/summer. Stella McCartney, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and Givenchy are just a few of the stellar sporty-chic looks that strut runways all over the world. The simplest way to achieve this trend is to work with neutrals (easy enough right?!), and sport-inspired shapes.

In this look, I layered boxy shapes over fitted silhouettes to create dimension, all while keeping it in the sporty realm. I also used a technique made famous by Queen B (yes, Beyonce) where I styled a slitted skirt over a fitted ponte pant. To complete the look, I added a great pair of oversized sunnies, a colour-blocked bucket bag and flatform sandals in a strong black and white combo.
