Hello, my dear friends! You might remember last fall when I attended New York Fashion Week, I wore a few designs from Yuna Yang, a New York based high fashion designer, whose daring use of fine fabrics and artful tailoring has been wowing me season after season. When she reached out to me for a styling collaboration, I was elated!
From a few collections I showed you, you might have recognized that Yuna’s designs are very elegant with exquisite details, often a touch of playfulness, too. When I picked out a few styles from her spring summer collection, I have in mind this uptown girl who is sophisticated, fashion-forward and super down-to-earth. Her style is chic and elegant, she appreciates fine things in life, but not all of them has to come with a hefty price tag. With that in mind, I present you a two part series, total four looks that I’ve styled with Yuna’s designs:
Look One: The Jumpsuit
Jumpsuit, by now, should be a staple of a fashionista’s wardrobe, it is a style one can wear to almost all occasions from graduation ceremony to a night out with friends. More and more brides opts for a jumpsuit instead of the traditional cocktail dress for their send-away.
When I touched this pale yellow silk jersey one by Yuna, one word came in mind: deluxe. The fabric felt like cool liquid poured over one’s body, even more so when there is a draft. Top part of the jumpsuit is sporty with rolled up sleeves and zipper closure for easy on and off; the harlem style bottom part gives more curvy definition.
Femme Fatale, I thought to myself, so I accessorized with an edgy metal-bar handbag in python, and a few pale gold jewelry in contemporary designs. The sandals are casual, on trend but luxurious with woven leather.
Look Two: The Blazer
In a previous post, I mentioned that an oversized blazer is a spring summer must-have. When this blazer is 100% heavy silk and with an extra flap that can be zipped like a biker jacket, you got a winner. The unique detail makes it a statement piece and I don’t want to take too much away from it, so I paired with a white lace bralette underneath considering the hot weather. Any simple t-shirt or camisole would do, I’d go with either lace or silk to continue that luxurious feel of silk of the blazer.
Kept the fun going with silk camou jogging pants, same sandals and bag from the first look. Since the blazer has such prominent flap design, I left the neckline almost bare but a simple stack of dainty necklaces.
Thank yo uso much for reading! Stay tuned for part two of my styling of Yuna Yang’s designs. See you in my next post!
