Lookbook Inspiration: Sneakers
In order to show you just how versatile a pair of sneakers can be, we will finish the article with some modern lookbook inspiration, which features a range of brands, styles and silhouettes:
Ways To Wear
There is no sure-fire way of knowing whether the polo shirts utilised within the layered looks below have short or long sleeves, yet we have included these outfits because the technique and aesthetic remains the same, no matter which style you opt for:
Coloured trousers, as well as bold-hued shirts and blazers, really took off in 2013, and for 2014 the style rules are set to remain similar.
So, if you’re looking to incorporate jewel-toned pieces into your outfits this season, make sure you keep the following in mind…
1. Stick To Solid Shades
The hyper-saturated, bold nature of jewel tones creates a visual draw – but so does a pattern. As only one piece should truly pop within any ensemble, determine if you want that to be a pattern or a pair of ruby red trousers, a sapphire button-down or an amethyst waistcoat.
On the same note, this quality essentially puts jewel tones in the same stylistic category as prints. Two solid jewel tones may clash, but ask yourself if they tastefully contrast and complement each other – for instance, emerald with amethyst – or if they create an eyesore, like amethyst with ruby.
2. Anchor With Neutral Or Cool Tones
The easiest way to approach and integrate jewel tones into your look is similar to any statement piece: anchor with neutral wardrobe basics in black, grey, white or other cool tones.
For example, try pairing an amethyst blazer with a pair of grey wool trousers and a white shirt – the blazer will instantly become the focal point of your look without overpowering it.
Alternatively, as seen on several of the AW13 runways, let a striking shade such as ruby red or sapphire really shine by allowing it to pop against a solid black backdrop.
3. Be Selective With Patterns
Opting for jewel tones doesn’t mean you have to eschew patterns completely. If you look closely, on trend options such as plaid and floral often incorporate these shades.
Ideally, you want a print/pattern that doesn’t clash and blends in with any neutral or darker-coloured pieces you already own.
Take, for example, Dolce & Gabbana’s Crepe De Chine floral print blazer from their current AW13 collection, which features a turquoise background with a cabbage rose print of white, light pink and green. The light and bold hues complement each other beautifully while offering enough versatility to incorporate your wardrobe staples.
Even though this particular piece may be more aspirational, the same principle can be applied to an on trend check/floral print shirt, sport coat or bomber.
