I get inspired by so many things. And what I end up with doesn't always look like the thing the inspiration came from. Many times, it's more about a riff on the idea something conjures up. For example, this fabulous outfit of Gail Kim's is designed for a photoshoot or a stage show or a music vid. It's seriously HAWT. But it would be tough to pull off amid the general public. But the idea of this shoot? Oh, now that we can rock! This look is all about an unabashed homage to RED. And it's a great thing to pay tribute to this fall because the color is as hot as it can get. To offer a spin on Gail's look, I've imagined pairing a chunky knit sweater (the assymetrical hemline is fun and unusual, but optional) and slim pants in a matching shade for a monochromatic look and then spiking it with black accessories: over-the-knee boots a la Gail, a mod black statement necklace and a simple, sleek bag. The look could be done with a turtleneck, or even a poncho for variation. Red skinny jeans would work too, making the ensemble a bit more casual. I hope this inspires your style this week! Happy Monday, Fiercenti!
