Runway Cool: Balenciaga Sunglasses

Mix and match color and pattern was best showcased at Proenza Schouler’s Spring/Summer 2013 RTW collection where the designers featured clothing patchworked with a variety of materials. Style.com notes that the designers “McCollough and Hernandez claimed Tumblr as a point of reference, citing its random associations and the delight-producing effects of happenstance”.


The Core Outfit


The green snake print combined with the bright neon yellow is all new kind of cool. Perforated leather skirts also take center stage (alongside another great trend: leather pencil skirts in an array of colors), adding a sporty look to the collection. The overall look has a masculine feel to it, with boxy cuts on the shoulders and clean, straight lines on the skirt.


The Accessories


Everything lightens up when summer rolls along; this is why we are featuring oversized sunglasses with a lighter tone than usual. We like the minty green gradient on the lenses and the spacing between the frame and the lenses on the top and bottom – giving it a modern cool look. Oversized sunglasses are extremely popular among celebrities, given the high amount of coverage and chic factor – so go on and channel your inner celeb with this style!

Instead of wearing the standard high heels, go for a pair of perforated leather booties for a tough chic look. This pair of shoes will go with jeans, skirts, dresses, and instantly up the style factor.

Select a small, boxy Valentino clutch for the look, with small spikes on the side, and no one will dare mess with you.


The Makeup


If you’re working bold colors and print in your outfit already we recommend keeping your face natural with highlighter on the cheekbones to give your face a dewy look, a swipe of nude gloss to add some shine, and a thin line of dark blue eyeliner will make your eyes pop and the eye whites appear brighter and whiter.
