What started out as a #4WaystoWear post morphed into this Color Edit. I was looking through my Polyvore sets last week when I noticed I hadn't shared the new looks I'd made. So I posted one and asked people to vote what I should style in 4 ways. I was hoping they'd choose the brown dress. They did! I got to work. That same week, actually the weekend right before, I had worked on a styled shoot where one of the looks was built around brown (I'm still working on the pictures) and I recall telling myself "Brown is so underrated" as I hung up the blazer afterwards.
Now take a look.
It's Solange and her husband at the Saint Heron shop launch event. Both were in Brown!
In the same weekend, videos from Rihanna's performance surfaced where she was clad in a brown oversized jacket and matching pants. Nobody needed to tell me what was going to happen next. I immediately knew that slowly but surely, brown will have the moment it deserves!
Look 1: The look that started everything. To everyone who voted, you did this! Thank you :)
Look 2: My friend, Amayo specifically asked for this look to go with a pair of boots...I listen. And as much as possible, I like to give you options...within options.
Look 3: This outfit is a chic night-time look. I especially love the texture the purse and snakeskin shoes add to this monotonous look.
Look 4: Memkoh also wanted to show you that your jeans can be given a chic update when layered with a brown dress and an amazing bag in blue. Brown and blue work magic, every time! Check out those heels!!!
The Making of these sets:
Do you sometimes wonder how I (or anyone you follow who does these outfit sets) put an entire look together? Well, here's a sneak peek of the process. It involves a lot of decisions, throwing things on and off the canvas. The dilemma is real!
Love and butterflies,
