I’m so excited to share my latest illustrated style guide with you, because it’s bigger and better than any of my previous guides. For this guide I focused on 3 straight-from-the-runway trends: Pattern Play, Sheer Joy and Punk, Polished and Pretty.

About the Trends:

Pattern Play. One of the hottest fresh-off-the-runway trends, but often the most intimidating to style in real life. The pattern-mixing trend is about incorporating more than one pattern into an outfit.

Sheer Joy. Integrate sheer elements into elements into your outfits to produce looks that are feminine and playful. Whether you choose a sheer lace blouse or a dress with sheer details, wearing sheer pieces is about adding visual interest to your look, rather than being overexposed.

Punk, Polished and Pretty. This is a luxe and feminine approach to adding rock star vibes to your outfits. The aim is to mix punk elements with feminine and refined pieces.

About the Guide:

For this guide, I collaborated with 5 amazing women, each with their own unique personal style, on this project. Specifically, I asked each lady to pick a trend and style it. All their looks and tons of advice on how to style these 3 trends, can be found in my in the guide. Click here to download the guide.

Flat Lay Style Page Sublime Cravings Sophisitcated PunkBefore I get into the details of this “Sophisticated Punk” look, I want to share something with you. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about style as a means of creative expression. And although I love keeping up with and illustrating what’s new and fab in fashion, I enjoy educating myself about timeless style elements. Moreover, I adore combining and playing with disparate style elements. This “style page” is my first attempt at sharing my love of researching and playing with different style elements.  In addition to keeping up with trends, I will continue to research iconic style elements and influencers and will share my take on them with you—via my illustrations of course. I hope you’ll come along on this journey with me.

Now, onto the “Sophisticated Punk” look. This look is a mix of sleek separates and elements that reference punk fashion. In the 70s and 80s, punk culture was all about rebelling and challenging the status quo in music, fashion, and more. But many designers, including Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Riccardo Tisci, have embraced punk elements in their designs. So now, edgy punk elements such as patent leather jackets, torn T-shirts, tartan, and combat boots are now fashion essentials.
