How to Wear Winter White

WEARING: CHICWISH TWEED COAT | AOS JEANS | PUBLIC DESIRE BOOTS | CHLOE BAG


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHICWISH & PUBLIC DESIRE.

Monday Blues? What if I told you there was a way to polish up your winter wardrobe as easy as 1, 2, 3? Today’s discussion is the white talk. Nah, not the political kind. But fasssshuuuun. Lolol. For those that follow the ‘No white after Labor Day’ rule, don’t fret! This look will perhaps change your mind about wearing white during the colder season, but with the right palette and cool (heh heh) accessories, you won’t look washed out. For those that are accident prone like myself, I can’t help you there, except a trusty Tidy bleach pen and a lil’ prayer. That’s the risk you take when wearing white! Continue reading see more of this gorgeous winter coat that’s white, but also blue! Follow the link to shop. Hurry there’s only 5 LEFT!!!

Ready to luxe up your outerwear collection? It’s one and done with this tweed coat boasting a double-breasted button closure, front flap up pockets and elegant fringe. The added pearls on the cuffs exude that sophistication and wintry feel. This coat run at $108 - really good deal for the quality of this piece. And HURRY - there’s literally only 5 LEFT! This fall/winter coat can be styled in many ways. With a beautiful dress, midi skirt, jeans, trousers and more, it’s a rebelliously chic winter coat to have in your closet! I styled this piece with a lot of white, that being my focus color of this outfit palette.

I’ve worn these boots with a red metallic dress during NYFW (HERE) but how perfect are they for the fall/winter season?! These beauties are from Public Desire and run for only $65. I love the flared block heel and pointed toe along with the metal hardwear detailing on the sides. Edgy yet still refined. To have my legs elongate further, I blended them with the boots in tightly cropped white jeans by Articles of Society. The snug/fit of their denim is ridiculously comfortable.

To tie in with the elegance of the coat, I accessorized with this blue bag and some pearl earrings. The bag definitely helps keep with the palette of blue and white, and not blending too much white together where you’ll suddenly disappear. (or even worse, looking like Casper, the friendly ghost.) Another trick that helps when wearing white? Go with cooler tones with your makeup! It tends to “frost” things up… think ice queen. (but minus the bitchiness lolol) The combination complement with each other and in my opinion, cooler tones gives more way to the face. That way not all of someone’s attention is on your white ensemble. Questions about any makeup products used to achieve this look? Or questions about the coat? Outfit? Drop them down below in the comment box. Happy Monday!

How to Wear Leopard Green

WEARING: AKIRA LEOPARD PRINT BLAZER | DL 1961 DENIM HEPBURN JEANS | CHANEL BAG | BCBG HEELS | BING BANG NYC EARRING | MAKEUP: ALL BY URBAN DECAY


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY AKIRA, VIVRELLE, & URBAN DECAY COSMETICS BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

It’s Friday and I’m on the prowl! One can definitely say when it comes to my style, I’m far from minimalist. As my friend put it last night in a witty description, I’m a ‘maximalist’. And I think this look states just that. It’s loud, rocker chic, with a subtle side of glamour. Definitely some sultriness going on in today’s post as well, follow along to get a closer look at the entire outfit, along with makeup and accessory details, hair, bag, shoes… oh my! A dangerously playful fall vibe. Check it!

What’s super hot in trending fashion right now? Animal print! But more so, leopard. Anything from head to toe, I can get on board with. I literally am in search of a leopard newsboy cap because HOW freaking cute would that be?! When I first noticed this blazer, I was immediately drawn to the print and color. The AKIRA label On The Prowl Leopard Corduroy Blazer is a chic and sexy, tight fitting blazer, ready to bring the heat to your future fall outfits. A textured corduroy material makes up the base of the jacket while a bold and fashion forward lime green leopard print pattern encompasses the entirety of the blazer. Pair with the matching AKIRA Label On The Prowl Cropped Leopard Corduroy Pant and some pointed toe pumps to complete the look. However, I went a different styling route.

Don’t get me wrong. The matching set would be dope too, but I really found the blazer alone with a pair of wide leg jeans - these ones are from DL 1961 Denim and are my favorite jeans brand ever. It gives less busyness around the look, separating different materials always spices up a look, so I even played with different prints, like the leopard with python skin. This sage, pink and multicolor python Chanel mini flap bag with matte silver-tone hardware, single chain-link and leather shoulder strap, is literal perfection. I love how it brings a more evening style to this, quite the eye-catching outfit for date night!

Urban Decay Look

Overdrive Eyeliner

Naked Cherry Highlight & Blush Palette

Naked Cherry Vice Lipstick in Devilish

Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette

All-Nighter Foundation in 7.75

Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

I did all my makeup using only Urban Decay products, especially the new Naked Cherry eyeshadow palette which is the BOMB, along with the Naked Cherry highlight & blush palette. The lipstick I’m using is called “Devilish” and is a beautiful berry pink with tonal micro-shimmer. And the eyeliner I’m using is called “Overdrive” in a deep green metallic, which I found really fitting with the accented pinks of the eyeshadow, lips and bag, along with the lime green colored blazer. What do you guys think of this look? Should I do a makeup tutorial of it on YouTube? Let me know in the comments down below!

To polish up my look along with hiding my overgrown bangs (thank goodness for my hair appointment tomorrow morning!) I pulled my hair back using six bobby pins on each side. I have thick hair so it takes a ton of pins to get it to hold. I paired them in threes - with a gap between the held lines of the bobby pins. I think it really cleans up this look well, don’t you? Just a bit of glamour never hurt anyone. Heels are by BCBG and are no longer available but I did link a very similar pair here that’s about $67. Classy yet affordable. Earring is by Bing Bang NYC. To shop the look, you can always search at the beginning or end of each style blog post. I’m also linking the beauty products I’ve used for this look in the middle of the post, so look to find the links. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

LFW SS19 RECAP

My London Fashion Week SS19 recap is finally here! Sorry for the delay this season guys! On top of massive deadlines, and trying to play catch up, it has become apparent that being a one-woman show (aside from my amazing husband and photographer who I’m always so thankful for), it may be time to perhaps hire an intern/pt asst. If you know of someone who is between the ages of 21-25 and is just starting to get into the blogging scene, please connect them with me! Or if you think you may be a person as such, preferably in NYC, hardworking and professional (meaning you are not entitled, has half a brain and can maybe juggle a few tasks at once), feel free to reach out! With that note, let’s take a look at my second season (and second visit to London) of LFW, where I’m keeping the format same as my New York Fashion Week diary, where I choose 6 favorites from each collection I’ve viewed along with a recap/review. Let’s carry on then!

GAYEON LEE

Gayeon Lee kicked off London Fashion Week SS19 with a collection that explores the relationship between fashion and art; referencing the figurative works of Egon Schiele, Lee used colors and patterns inspired by the intensity of painter's figurative works. Its distinct look to a unique use of texture, color, graphic shapes, and intriguing deconstruction are thoughtful detailing features throughout in pleats, drapes, and gathers. Presented by a mixture of professional ballet dancers and models in movement; stripes, spots, and a natural color palette offset a contemporary interpretation of 50’s feminine silhouettes in structured volumes and gamine looks. Texture and movements on point, another favorite out of the six chosen were definitely the bags. 

NICOPANDA

Nicopanda’s SS19 collection was all about the 90’s underground dance culture. A mixture of sequins, neons and animal prints, with fun accessories like light-up devil horns, electric blue cowboy hats and metallic tinsel for hair to complete the looks. I also appreciated the club-ready streetwear collection of slinky dresses, sporty co-ords and chunky sneakers. And with the finishing touch, Nicopanda revealed a series of t-shirts designed by NYC based artist, activist and Nicopanda crew member, Hilton Dresden, as part of a partnership with Merch by Amazon that was immediately ready to purchase post-show.

XU ZHI

Incorporating elements from poet Emily Dickson, such as  themes of nature, dominance and religion, Xu based the collection on different aspects of her character and work. Fringe dresses, shredded satin, loose fits and tassel suits, Xu Zhi stirred an awakening of the era of luxury and femininity of the 1920s. However with an adaption of khaki, bomber jackets and co-ords, the SS19 collection instills a contemporary and progressive fashion label. Favorite: White tassel suit. Other favorable mentions: The space's stained glasses and gothic architecture. Simply gorgeous. Special thanks to Rowben Lantion for the insatiable photos. x

MARTA JUKUBOWSKI


First time seeing Marta Jukubowski and was definitely not disappointed. Being partly Polish, I was proud to see the Polish-born London designer's work. She likes to reminisce in the past in the present, and in the SS19 theme, it was a time travel of sorts. Memories from the past, of moments associated with them, even though it's a glimpse into her younger days, the collection alone can relate to any woman, old and young. Signature evening dresses, pencil skirts and tailored jackets all updated with wrap fastenings and rewashed with fresh colorways of mint, teal and a soft mauve. Juxtaposed with snippets of her time in Ibiza, the Spanish party island, which presented itself through subtle use of fluorescent piping and lace details alongside jarring hues of lime green and bright pink. And BIG hats. BIG. Favorite: Python pants all the way (aside from the extra af resort accessories... LOVE/miłość

JOHNSTON’S OF ELGIN

Johnston’s of Elgin are renowned for their signature chic and elegant designs coupled with fine cuts and detailed tailoring. Think cashmere and tartan print - but how to incorporate into summerwear? Set at the Palm Court, Waldorf Hilton Hotel, the brand used lightweight materials and knit modernisms to create outfits for all year round. 15 womenswear and five menswear collections were showcased and for high summer, the brand used lightweight cashmere and mesh materials with bright canary yellows, rich purples and creamy ecru made to have the designs pop and blend luxuriously. One such outfit of a tartan top tucked into a pair of cerise long shorts was a definite favorite. The SS19 collection is casual, sporty and effortlessly summery – even with a tinge of Ancient Greek royalty in some of the goddess-like summer dresses.

FYODOR GOLAN

The runway was designed to emulate coral covered driftwood; it was constructed of flowers and real abandoned fishing nets. Fyodor Golan's collection itself was inspired by the sea; surfing influences can be seen in sporty tailoring and materials, while shells and real pearls are utilized details throughout the collection. Various shades of navy, cyan and turquoise, produced in washed denim, raw silks and recycled cottons were definitely prominent in the ocean-themed show. According to the show notes, color combinations and collaged pieces were inspired by American painter, Jamie Adams, whilst images of pastel discarded waste were inspired by sculptures by Thirza Schaap. Favorites: The issue that has been somewhat neglected this season; the environment.

ADA ZANDITON

For SS19 Ada introduces the color of pink, as inspired by a recent scientific discovery that found pink is the oldest color. She plays with rose hues to illustrate a galactic theme within her collection which features tulle ballerina skirts paired with lilac iridescent harnesses with ring detailing. 3D floral embellishments made through hand-cut manipulation accentuate feminine silhouettes, creating unusual shapes. Contrasting themes of fetishism were explored through the harnessed bullet bras detailed with pink rhinestones. Ada Zanditon blends avant-garde pieces with more of a luxe feel to appeal to her ever-growing fearless clients, such as Ariana Grande and Mariah Carey. Her bold designs and unique techniques display her concepts surrounding the relationship between the body and the garment itself. 

CASSEY GAN

Cassey Gan's signature block prints and primary tones standout each season and yet continues to keep each collection fresh and innovative. SS19 is all about midi lengths and asymmetric and layered hemlines. Traditional menswear checks and stripes are paired with Cassey’s iconic geometric patterns in enhanced earthy tones with predominant shades of turquoise, blue, black, white and red. Each look entails a concoction of print combinations and layers, making every ensemble quite appealing. Attention to each positioned layer and complimentary tones and shades makes the collection.  The printed tunics are paired with metallic and glittery trimmings and bell-sleeved shirts are accessorized with tailored bibs. Pleats are scattered across the looks and can be glimpsed outlining varying hems. Favorites: dress in top right, bags and statement earrings. 

MINKI

Inspired by Lorenzo Vitturi’s ‘Money Must Be Made,’ designer Minki Cheng’s latest collection imagined the artist’s journey through the Balogun Market on Lagos Island. The set design was compacted with all manner of objects from furniture to textiles piled high in perilous towers on the catwalk. Minki’s aesthetic is ever optimistic and fun, constantly playing with color, print, and texture; his signature clash of bright yellows, pinks, blues, and reds contrasted in this collection with muted navy and khaki in abstract prints on fresh and playful silhouettes. Favorites: Bottom middle (most beautiful blue I've seen in a while), the accessories such as head ties and jelly sandals that brought a childlike innocence to the mix. 

 F.H. Christensen SS19

F.H. CHRISTENSEN

Farzaneh H. Christensen combines elegance with professionalism while creating exotic, timeless designs varying from luxurious evening gowns to trend forward cocktail dresses. All materials are sourced in European countries varying from France to Italy and include the finest silk and handmade beadings in order to achieve the final intricate creations. The materials used are sourced throughout Europe. From Italy and France the brand has the finest silks including satin duchesse and silk velvet which are all ethical and sustainable. Farzaneh’s mission is to make everyone feel and look their best possible, glamorous self. She offers a ‘Bespoke Service’. Attention to the individual ensures that every customer feels elegant, confident and special. Her ‘Bespoke Couture Services’ enables the client to be fully involved as she creates a unique, personalized ‘work of art’ designed specifically for the individual. Clearly demonstrated in the SS19 collection. Favorite: Lime me that Green dress, BABY!

STEVENtai

It’s all about trying to embrace change and diversity within the fashion industry in Steventai's SS19 collection. Inspired by Sofia Coppola’s film The Virgin Suicides, the pieces were feminine and bold - the kind of clothes made for unique and strong women. But what was entirely refreshing about this collection, in particular, are the models and the entire project behind it. A model who has alopecia, another with a birthmark on her face, burn survivors - a moving way to show different types of beauty. An intimate, and yet softly glamorous 1970’s nostalgic mood. Favorite: Lilac pantsuit with the flared bottoms. So cool.

 Paul Costelloe SS19

PAUL COSTELLOE

Paul Costelloe's signature elegance was apparent in his SS19 particularly in voluminous layered mini dresses and dramatic evening gowns. But the unexpected twist was the welcomed sense of 80s nostalgia. Boy, I guess it was the time to party because the models oozed a carefree sexiness reminiscent of those days (Or sho I've been told...) The highlight was a sports luxe theme throughout colorful bodysuits with longline tailored jackets. Styled with quiffed hair, ankle boots and fishnet socks (both in white) produced a beautifully unpredicted ensemble.  

TATA NAKA

A collection with a wearable daytime elegance, Tata Naka's whimsical illustrations and prints were scattered across feminine pleats and tailoring. The motifs and iconography nodded to the designers Tamara and Natasha Surgulaze's Greek and Roman influences. Other classical elements included the statue-like placement of the models on marble columns, toga-esque silhouettes and woven sandals. Fun fact: Ambassadors of the brand include Cameron Diaz, Mina Suvari and Sarah Jessica Parker, the Tata-Naka collection even regularly starred in the legendary series Sex in the City & was worn by Carrie Bradshaw on the cover of the official book. Favorites: anything animal print.

EDELINE LEE

One of my favorite presentations from LFW, Edeline Lee's immersive one investigated the feminine state through design and performance with a contemporary dance spectacular juxtaposing the “woman’s vulnerable, internal persona versus her worldly, exterior facade". he dance performance showcased Lee’s SS19 collection in various scenes from classic fashion moments such as catwalk show, red carpet arrival and afterparty, as well as dream sequences featuring choreography playing homage to the work of Pina Bausch and Traja Harrell, all to a soundtrack featuring female voices only, alongside minimal white props and retro light effects. It also championed a more body-positive approach to dressing as the models and dancers in the show came in various shapes and sizes and perfectly showcased how flattering Lee’s designs are.The collection itself, expands on Lee’s experimentation with ruching and ruffles, while maintaining the designer’s tailored, womanly shapes, and saw the label’s signature Flou Bubble Jacquard fabric showcased in scarlet, ivory and bottle green, alongside a crinkle georgette in brown and ivory, and a graphic, hand-painted zigzag print. Highlights included the spaghetti-strap dresses and long-sleeve A-line dresses, as well as the feminine skirts and separates that were accented with hand-covered, multicolored dome buttons and buckles.

pushBUTTON

The 80s are evident for SS19 and Korean cult-brand pushBUTTON is no exception. Korean designer and former K-pop star, Seung-Gun Park of pushBUTTON began to feel immediate pressure and in light of his show notes, described being in a trapped square box with no room for anything. And that's how the 'square shoulder' came to be, becoming the main silhouette of his collection along with giving an updated version of the power shoulder detail. Impeccable needlework and precise fabric selection, along with a variety of tabs and hooks to completely change up the silhouette just with closing and opening, and separable jackets, shirts, and pants can completely create new asymmetrical silhouettes by being separated or combined together. The masterful handling of various fabrics from wool, cotton, jersey, chiffon to denim proves how nimble and agile this label can be. Favorites: Deconstructed pants and the minty fresh maxi dress ensemble.

NYFW SS19 RECAP

My NYFW blog post is finally up! This SS19 season I wanted to keep things simple yet fresh. So for my content from this past September I'm sharing 6 favorite looks from each show I attended along with a recap/review of each designer's collection that I saw. Straight to the point without any bells and whistles. Thanks for waiting for this delayed post and I hope you enjoy my perspective on each collection. Let's get started!

A_I_R ATELIER

Eye-catching but understated colors, a mixture of prints such as tigers, bats, flowers, suns, each A_I_R Atelier look was paired with one-of-a-kind accessory from the luxury watch brand, Klasse14. Some items of note - this 'Wild World' graphic tee, floral bomber, and play of different prints both alone and in two.

NOON BY NOOR

The Spring/Summer 2019 collection pays homage to Bahrain, inspired by its desert beauty with its soft sands and palm trees. I've seen Noon by Noor’s work before and they're always creating attractive, fresh and clean clothes that hit the middle-of-the-road aesthetic. Lovely silhouettes - loose and flowing with delicate shoulders, subtle patterns - all in all less always being more in this house. Their blue palette was certainly a fave. Photo top middle corner. Case in point. 

LAURENCE & CHICO

You can definitely say Laurence & Chico is over the top. Set at Chelsea Piers Fitness Center, I didn't expect to actually much sportswear from this dynamic duo who are known for their theatrical concepts. This is something I really appreciate because not all fashion should solely be ready-to-wear or haute couture. Fashion should be being able to do whatever your creativity wants itself to do. And what's fabulous (aside from Miss J Alexander's commentary AND walk throughout the show), they offered witty sport pieces there were either deconstructed, reconstructed or repurposed. Really with the now. One inspiration I couldn't stop thinking about when watching this season's show: The Fifth Element's opera singer. I must be really into blue this spring and summer season...

TADASHI SHOJI

Mermaid, starry-starry night vibes with intricate patterns of the galaxy or nature, either or both are universal and powerful in Tadashi Shoji’s SS19 collection. Leaves, fish scales, the universe itself with strong color palettes of neon greens and pinks but also modest blues. I especially gowns and the bottom right most - truly a stunner. Accessories such as earrings and shoes were very on point along with the dramatic sparkly makeup.

NICOLE MILLER

The ultimate cool girl, most adoringly loose-curled hair and smokey eye makeup models strutted down the runway in mixed prints of polka dot, denim, and leopard. Yes, you have heard it here folks, animal print is back ;) And the 80s aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Favorites were the oversized jackets with varsity cuffs and a fully sequined camo trouser with matching T-shirt. Oh, and that the ‘club kids’ danced/walked the finale together and not in the single-filed line. Nicole Miller is indeed, here to stay.

 Concept Korea SS19 NYFW

CONCEPT KOREA - LIE COLLECTION

Concept Korea may not be a name that is familiar to many, but its assured use of color - reminiscent of the master itself, Prada, definitely makes it one to watch. The dress I wore to the show (shown here from my NYFW SS19 Outfits) was from their FW18 collection. When I went in for my fitting, I instantly fell in love with the hug of the fabric and ruffles of the plaid print. Different, fun - just like me! Favorites was the army green trench and other mixed plaid trench. As you can see, heavily into trench coats. the concept of the Spring/Summer 2019 collection was ‘Perfectly Imperfect’. The designer, Chung Chung Lee wanted it to say that women do not need to be perfect and that their imperfection already has a perfect personality.” The perfect combination of intense detail, soft colors, tailoring, and athleisure style, in my opinion.

CHROMAT

The models came down the runway literally dripping in water. Playing on the idea of the beach cover up Chromat flipped the script by adding transparency, weblike netting, and cropped silhouettes to this concept. But what makes Chromat is not just the clothes themselves, but more so the message that is being sent out in the fashion industry: And that is inclusivity. The ongoing dialogue about the human form that play's out in Chromat's collection was definitely acknowledged in the SS19 show. Body positivity, gender fluidity, and disability rights—Becca McCharen-Tran's shows serve as more than a showcase for clothes, as she was one of the first designers to recognize these subjects and I'm all for it. Hip hip hooray!

Untitled-3.jpg

MARINA MOSCONE

Held in Willem de Kooning’s former studio and residence near Union Square, Marina Moscone is the first designer to use this space for an event as such. A serene space with enormous archways, chipping pastel doors, and giant water lilies painted on the walls set the mood. Models breezed through the rooms and gave editors and buyers an up-close look at their raw-edged silk dresses, fluffy hand-knit sheaths, and gently molded Basque tailoring. Moscone said “unconventional women” of the ’60s like Natalie Wood and Penelope Tree were her muses this season. They were instrumental in bringing a new, less-traditional kind of femininity to the era, one that merged glamour with a touch of eccentricity. I really dug each garment’s flexibility and the way certain looks such as the chunky sandal can and will be worn at black-tie events. Favorite was the black cocktail dress in bottom left hand corner. Simply divine.

taoraywang.jpg

TAORAY WANG

Considered the “queen of suits”, Chinese designer Taoray Wang stayed true to her brand, showcasing a mix of traditional and trendy styles. Pastels, plaid and a pop of color intertwined within Taoray Wang’s trademark tailored structure. Merging East and West, dressing that global business lady and oozing with feminine power, independence and confidence:  Wang’s SS19 presented a flower bursting into bloom, very much a blossom-blush inspired collection. 

TIBI.jpg

TIBI

Hands down probably my favorite show for every NYFW, it was a true pleasure to attend the show for the first time this season. Play on suiting mixed with resort accessories such as beachy sandals and sunnies was the ultra-coolness of the collection along with a few male models strutting down the runway. (Perhaps Tibi will launch menswear in the near future?) What I truly love about the designer, Amy Smilovic, is her innate attention for supercharged, statement-making colors, in particular for the SS19 collection, the palette merged “sun-bleached” pastels like lemon, baby pink, and lime with bolder pops of orange, cobalt, and raspberry. Truly a match made in heaven. It was definitely difficult choosing my favorites for this one - I loved the ENTIRE collection!

DENNIS.jpg

DENNIS BASSO

The Dennis Basso SS19 collection takes global women on an amazing journey from sporty and carefree to glamorous evenings. Pale pinks and baby blues are mixed with red and cream and a statement of black and white for a feminine and chic color palette. A variety of crisp fabrics such as organza, gazaar, and canvas create interesting shape and structure throughout the collection. Summer furs are also incorporated with sable, Russian broadtail, mink, and fox. The collection also includes feather touches and intricate hand embroideries. Favorite looks? Top right (HI pockets) and bottom middle (HELLLLLLLLO jacket) LOLOL

HANWEN.jpg

HAN WEN

If you haven't already heard of Han Wen, you're going to want to pay attention ASAP. The 24-year-old designer recently unveiled his Spring/Summer 2019 collection, a summertime wardrobe "for one's journey through life, love, and remembrance," per the press release. The collection was inspired by a story from the designer's mother's life, he explained: We imagine a young bride, called away on business to Europe for the summer. Her days are spent working tirelessly to advance her professional career. On weekends, she explores foreign cities and cultures, all the while chronicling her adventures in letters and postcards to her young groom, waiting anxiously for her to return home. Each look in the collection carries with it a bit of that story—soft feminine lines, warm hues, and delicate map illustrations. Check out my post here to see a shirt I wore by the designer to the presentation.

suzannerae.jpg

SUZANNE RAE

Suzanne Rae Pelaez’s Spring output was crafted from a youthful worldview informed by fairy tales, Hollywood films, and the punchy colors of Crayola crayons. With her vintage dollhouse sitting at the center of her Chinatown studio and daughter Ella playing alongside models dressed in cheery shades of pink and lavender, Rae Pelaez set an exuberant mood. The clothes were as smile-inducing; cropped suits in floral jacquard with transparent overlays of tulle with cross-stitching that resembled circuitry were cute and inventive, while bows adorning trousers, belts, and even shoes added an unapologetically girly touch.
