TOUGH LOVE

Flo­rals for Spring? Ground­break­ing. As Amy Yasmine dis­cov­ers, the best way to up­date it is to give it a mas­cu­line spin.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Style -

NEW ROMANTICS For­get about suit and tie pair­ings. In­stead, look to the New Ro­man­tic icons of the early ’80s, and take it up a notch. At Gucci, Alessan­dro Michele dec­o­rated elab­o­rate pussy bows with over­sized flo­ral brooches, while Lan­vin used it to se­cure a neck scarf. Fab­u­lous hair, mas­cu­line tai­lor­ing, and a rosy cor­sage are all you need to make a dif­fer­ence.

TRACK STAR Love it or hate it, what­ever Alessan­dro Michele puts on the run­way has a knack of turn­ing into fash­ion gold. See: his ath­leisure take for Spring/Sum­mer ’16, where a green em­broi­dered track­suit sparked a street style trend. Mix it up and try a sim­ple black dress with an elab­o­rate bomber. Who says you can’t wear sports­wear to din­ner?

PYJAMA PARTY Per­haps the most un­der­rated, pyjama dress­ing is de­cid­edly de rigueur this sea­son. Flo­rals have taken over, as ev­i­dent at Dolce & Gab­bana. Loose, light, and so­phis­ti­cated, the Si­cil­ian power duo has given us a rea­son to roll out of bed and head to the streets without hav­ing to se­cond guess our en­sem­ble.

DENIM DUTY Thank Sarah Bur­ton at Alexan­der McQueen for work­ing the sea­son’s favourite print on rugged, em­bel­lished den­ims. Patch­work, ap­pliqués, or even se­quinned, amp up the drama and don’t be afraid to pile on lay­ers for max­i­mum im­pact.

STOMPING GROUNDS Court­ney Love’s grunge style was ev­i­dent both on the run­way and the streets. To­day’s twist? Street style stars are throw­ing so­phis­ti­ca­tion into the mix. Match Hara­juku-goth boots with sweet, flirty minidresses, or wear an­kle boots with mid-length hem­lines.
