I love me some fashion, if you haven’t heard. And guess what? The New Yorker has published its latest style issue–and it’s a historic one. Time flies when you’re having fun, am I right? Check out the story, right here. A little nibble for you:
When The New Yorker published its very first fashion issue, in November of 1994, Adam Gopnik led off his comment with a question: Why does fashion matter?
One answer he gave, and we’re inclined to agree with him, is that its simply fun.
Fashion doesnt necessarily have to be about something larger than itself, and the arbitrary pleasure one derives from it can often be its own reward.
For this collection, which marks the publication of our thirty-fifth Style Issue, weve pulled together nine classic pieces on fashion, covering everything from the fashion worlds early influence on self-expression to the rise of style blogging.
In this case, I wrapped the Wool Challis Chevron- Paisley Panel Black & White Scarf around my waist twice and tied it into a knot to create a sort of wrap around skirt. By placing it under the dress and adding flats and leggings, as well as changing up the jewelry it gives the dress a more boho look.
And here, I just tied the scarf the same way but on top of the dress. I think this changes the look so significantly in a single switch that it’s worth noting.
And for my final trick today, the same scarf and dress with different hair, jewelry and drape adds yet a other almost completely different look.
Now…honestly, I.could probably come up with 150 more looks with accessories alone.
So, next time you think you’ve nothing to wear, think again. Tradition is great.but it rarely invites innovation.
