Michael Kors Should Really Teach a Class on Spring Styling
For his Spring 2015 collection, Michael Kors didn't just give us a collection of wearable separates; he also gave us some serious lessons in styling. With a roster of crisp and clean classics — white button-downs and bright yellow raincoats — and fresh, feminine florals, he put together 55 looks that were both aspirational and attainable. For once, it was a runway that made us think, "Hey, I can wear that skirt with a flannel top I already own!" (Which might not be such a smart business move on Kors's, but hey, that's what his covetable, highly commercial accessories are for.)
Our favourite teachable moments from the runway? A menswear-inspired navy blazer with doubled-up white cuffs and a woven belt cinched high on the waist, all over a plaid-embellished midi skirt — it was a master class in mixing and matching. The oversize boyfriend blouse tucked into a sheer floral skirt served as a prime example of how to make your staples sexy. And a double-ruffled grey sweatshirt layered over cropped trousers was just good sense.
And although Kors has never been one to shy away from giving his two cents on style (ahem, Project Runway), we're so happy to see that he practices what he preaches.
