PLAYING WITH CONTRAST TO MAKE A STYLE STATEMENT


PHOTOGRAPHY BY Walik Goshorn

Love makes the world go round, but I like to think contrasts—whether they be slight or extreme—do the same. Strolling through Soho, one gets echoes of old New York City; depending on the time of day, it’s easy to slow down and forget this is one of the fastest cities on the planet.

Contrast can always be counted on to up the ante in fashion. For instance, I adore lace, but most times, when I wear it, I like to pair it with something harder, like metal details, heavier accessories, or masculine tailoring. Blazers go with just about everything (or, arguably, absolutely everything) and I like the soft color and slight oversized fit of this Sincerely Jules take. I enjoy rompers because they’re easy, and this Willow & Clay number is super comfortable.

I am a big fan of slippers, loafers, and Oxfords. Not only is this Gucci pair splendidly comfy, it marries that whole feminine/masculine approach that I mentioned earlier. (Sidenote: Normally, I wear a 38, but the Gucci Princetown floral embroidery fit me in a 37.5. Sizing may vary between styles.)

Again, playing with contrasts, such as in these Samantha Wills pieces: natural stone and crystal elements with shiny metal. As for my sunglasses, these have become my current go-tos. Love the combination of earthy wood and rose-colored, futuristic reflector. (There may be a theme, there.)
