In a fall season that is going to be packed to the rafters with references to the Mod era, it’s only natural that we linger just a little bit longer in summer, Hamptons-like style moments.
Summer was all about long skirts. Cropped tops were indispensable because they continued the line or color of a high waisted pants or maxi skirts.
For this look, AFP didn’t have to look elsewhere- we dipped into Free People’s and BCBG collections for inspiration. We decided to go for some doses of black and white.
However, it was through Danika’s make up work that this look received the boldest blast of high-octane color: rasberry lips looked extremely sexy with almost blinding white skirt and ribbed jet black top.
High above bustling streets of Bethlehem, PA, our team with John Rounds, our photographer and makeup artist Danika Clevenstine, and of course our beautiful model Chloe Smith was enjoying another amazing photo shoot.
A great photo captures such light and depth that you can never tire of looking at it.
Discovery runs through the fashion stylist’s veins but also it runs right through photographer’s lens! It’s that sense of discovery that’s important to my work.
These days my styling emphasizes balance, from symmetrical to bold-style.
Back to this outfit. This season the ribbed knit material is getting an update for a more polished flair. So forget strict stripe, rainbow styles and opt for sleeker lines and a more minimal look.
