I love the secret-garden-esque feel of this look from Lana! The simplicity, the mix of luscious colors, the 70's vibe of her flared jeans- it all harmonizes flawlessly in a way that is both appealing to the eye and casually stylish. The key piece in the outfit is her statement jacket and it showcases the raison d'etre for this kind of item: there's no need to do much beyond using it - it makes the look come alive in and of itself. Replicating her outfit exactly, with that long-sleeved bomber, would be a bit toasty this time of year, even without an under-layer (unless you own a sheer or lace one, in which case, have at it! ;)). A kimono makes a fitting metamorphosis for this season. It's spot on trend and the lightweight, floaty fabrics that are the silhouette's usual fare are cool, comfortable and come in a gorgeous array of colors that have the same exuberance as Lana's jacket. To get the 70's vibe, grab a pair of wide-leg, flared or bootcut jeans in blue denim. Alternatively, polish the styling up with wide or straight leg chinos. Add a basic tank on top. This will be a 'blank canvas' item, so it can be almost any iteration as long as it's body con or body-skimming and a single color - choose a neutral or, go brighter and pull a shade from the kimono's pattern. Toss on your topper. Finish with coordinating sneakers (or platformed chunky heeled sandals ;)) and a subtle choker and boom! Done! Too easy, right? Unleessssss...you don't have a kimono yet. Don't panic! It's gonna be fine :) Go with any floral jacket (bomber, blazer, trench) but instead of putting it on fully, as Lana has, just toss it over your shoulders. Or, grab your widest floral scarf and toss it over one shoulder so that one end points to your toes and the other end points at your heels. Add a belt to keep it in place (as shown in the far right and far left pics here.) If it's wide enough, don't scrunch it - leave it open to full width so that it drapes off your shoulder toward your elbow, like a sari would. I hope this inspires you to make a colorful, floral statement sometimes soon :) Happy styling, loves!
