Leather Leggings with a Peplum on Top + Mixing Prints

Fashion, Luxury, Runway, Style

Pantone, the “world-renowned authority on color,” has recently named emerald the color of 2013. I’m not quite sure I buy into the idea of there being an authority on color, but I do know that the color of this Prabal Gurung peplum top is gorgeous. I would call it more of a forest, but it definitely falls into the emerald category. I paired it with oxblood leather leggings to stay on trend, and a vintage tweed Chanel jacket to stay classy and timeless. The Casio watch, Ray-Ban wayfarers and Alexander Wang leopard print bag add a modern edge to keep the ensemble looking chic. Finish the look with winter white point-toe wedges and you are ready for a warmish winter day.

Mixing patterns, like tweed and leopard print, is also very trendy right now. It’s being done from the red carpet to the runway, and even on the street:

Kerry Washington (one of my style crushes) wore this amazing Peter Pilotto dress to a Django Unchained premier and actually won best-dressed on E!’s Fashion Police.

Philip Oh of StreetPeeper.com took the middle shot of a casual, yet wonderful, mixing of patterns in New York City. (Note the leopard print: some say this is the neutral of patterns.)

Erdem‘s Spring 2013 RTW collection featured the mixing of many colors and patterns, and though this wasn’t my favorite look from the collection, it definitely makes a statement. I love how he chopped up the anatomical parts of a woman’s body with the mixing of patterns. But if you want to see my favorite look from the collection, here it is:

On trend and unwearable by almost every woman everywhere, but oh so stunning. The beadwork and transparency are so hot right now. I love the contrast of such a bland color as grey with the bright pink beadwork. Just amazing.
