Runway the Real Way

Find me on:

Runway the Real WayWhen you look at a picture of a model on the runway, what do you really see? What elements should you take away from the style and apply in your own fashion choices? When I look back on photographs I take during New York Fashion Week, I see more than just an outfit itself. Let me show you how to do the same thing … 

First, in the slideshow below, you’ll see a model from the Art Asia fashion show featuring the work of Korean designers. What I see in this outfit is a sleek monochromatic look in shades of gray and silver. I also spy texture in the way the top has a crisscross effect, as well as the fur at the neckline.  You might ask, how can I apply these features in a realistic way? Well, here’s some elements I used to pull a similar ensemble together using items from Goodwill:

  • Sleeveless knit tunic dress/top in gray by Rebel Sugar – $5.99
  • Divided brand knit leggings in gray – $4.99
  • Oversized knit tie top in gray. (From my styling collection, but thrifted for $5)
  • Charles Albert wedge booties in black – $6.99 
  • Gray infinity scarf in faux Mongolian Lamb – $2.99

To achieve some modesty, as well as that crisscross feeling, I tied the oversized top over the sleeveless tunic and leggings. By adding the wedge booties, you get the same fashionable feeling represented in the photo of the model. But, it’s the faux fur scarf that really sets off this outfit–it totally reminded me of the fur neckpiece shown on the model!  

In fact, I loved it so much that I bought ALL the gray ones my Goodwill store had in stock! If you’d like one for yourself, please comment in the area below the slideshow and tell me what type of outfit you’d put together in order to rock this scarf. The first five people to comment will get one FREE! All I ask is that once you receive the scarf, you send me a photo of you wearing it so I can share it in another post!
