2012 Resort Collections Have Gone To The Streets

Who else would have the genius to put a leather jacket with a maxi floral dress? Oliver Theyskens!

I have been on a brief hiatus from WordPress. I know, there are people out there that are much busier than a student and can still get work done. So maybe I have been a tad lazy but still busy at the same time. Is that possible? Now with summer in our midst, things are much brighter for some folks. The parties are spry, some people can sleep in, some people have time to do actual activities, and plenty of people take advantage of their wardrobes. The weather is lax and allows people to actually wear one layer without sweating a storm or feeling uncomfortable. Now… to my main point.

McQueen found a street side. And you know, this street side has always been there in fashion. I mean, I saw Bill Cunningham New York(stunning film, it deserves a blog post) the other night and just look at the girls that he has taken pictures of! Why not rock a flashy blazer, or wear an open trench coat with some baggy balloon pants, or a maxi dress with a pair of leather boots! Sweater with a skirt? And oddly enough, pajamas are back in… imagine a trench coat with those new Ralph Lauren bottoms! Classy. What about a to-the-knee skirt with a pair of long boots? Short shorts with a formal boyfriend blazer and sandals? The possibilities are endless, folks. Street wear is officially back in, take advantage of it… these things change too fast.
