OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: URBAN JUNGLE

By Jessie L Brooks

 

We love injecting color into our spring and summer wardrobes, and this week's outfit is all about using vibrancy in even the most casual of looks.
One of our favorite pieces for anytime dressing is a beautiful kimono.
These robe like cardigans are perfect additions over dresses, jeans, and even shorts. From the exclusive Johanna Ortiz x mytheresa.com capsule collection, inspired by the perfect holiday packing list, the Kiribati kimono is the perfect marriage of fluid design and colourful detail. The tie-front style has been crafted from whisper weight silk crêpe de Chine and printed with an engaging "life in the tropics" motif that references the label's Latin American roots. Contrast piping and gathered sleeves bring a contemporary design note to the Japanese inspired style. Underneath the kimono, we kept things more on the relaxed side with a pair of L'Agence cropped jeans and lemony tank by 28.5. Continuing our color story with eye-catching accessories, we wanted to bring out those bits of punchy pink and tangerine in our kimono. Starting off with this Alexander McQueen box bag. It features a diamond faceted rotation clasp fastening with two decorative studs. Inside, the bag has a blush suede effect lining, three compartments, a flap zip pocket and a leather card compartment. Next up are bright fuchsia block heels. Understated yet exceptional, Steve Madden's Carrson sandals pair a delicate ankle strap and fine styling for a look that gets you noticed. Adding to this summery vibe are a couple of warm weather must-haves; fabulous sunglasses and a skin warming bronzing powder. Quay's highly elevated aviators will take all of your basics to the next level. These lustrous frameless stunners are perfect for your layering needs across all seasons, especially on hot, sunny days. When it comes to summer beauty, it's all about a beautiful golden glow. YSL's bronzer will help take your skin to the next golden level. This formula is a silky-matte bronzer that instantly gives skin an effortless natural glow without the shine. As if you were wearing nothing at all, Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones capture the power of the sun in a stone for the most natural sun-kissed tan. While you might not be vacationing on an exotic safari, in this look you will definitely be a part of the 'Urban Jungle'.
