NYFW day one look: Scarf Print with The Kooples
We're kicking off NYFW coverage with the outfit I wore for Day 1 of NYFW, on Thursday which features not only a super cute piece from The Kooples, but also a piece I shared recently in my scarf print trend 101 video and articles. So why this piece? How can you style it? Let's dive in:
Don't forget to leave a comment below with your thoughts on this look, and whether you'll be rocking the scarf print this season too!
nyfw day one - the kooples
Though The Kooples shows in Paris, I was so into the scarf print trend after doing the video, that I knew I wanted to wear this piece. We spoke in the video about how the trend was featured on several runways, including Self Portrait, Ferragamo and Tory Burch and it's a big one for Fall - perfect for NYFW too. This kimono is an absolute gorgeous piece, and one that can be worn to parties, but also to the office and out, making it a very versatile piece. One item to mention, however, is that to wear it as I do here, I had to add a pin at the front, so it wouldn't open up with a big gust of wind. Any tailor can do this, or maybe you can even do this yourself, but it's something I recommend if you want to wear it as a dress like I do here. Do note: I also wore biker shorts underneath just in case, which is another big trend we've spoken about recently.
how to style scarf print kimono
Pair the kimono with black wide-legged pants and a black top - monochrome, allowing the kimono to be the statement - and black pointed to shoes. Here, you're not so much wearing it as a dress, like I do in the pictures, but more so like a normal kimono.
to go out
Style like I do here as a dress, with heels or ankle booties. Add a clutch and you're ready to go. Remember what I said about the pin though!
Style the kimono with a pair of denim, and a white tee underneath. Here, we're trying to make the kimono a bit more casual, so add booties, or low heels and you're good to go!
