look here: go global!

etro: a trend well-done

we love etro's take on the global trend. here's a look that works because each element is distinct but still very much in concert with the rest. blazers are a timeless addition to any wardrobe and this season's as good a time as any to invest in a spunky piece. we recommend army green blazers or parkas because they're great for the transitional season/summer and they also work very well across the board i.e. whether you're wearing jeans, a dress, or a skirt. speaking of skirts, delightful prints are quite may-jah this season so an alternative to this etro piece shouldn't be terribly hard to find. if bright colors are not your thing, you can tone the look down by going the flowery route or by incorporating your favorite a-line ankara (african print) or adire/tie-dye skirt. just keep things interesting :) the shirt keeps things preppy and chic and the stacked heels are the perfect accessory and add a dash of earthiness with their brown tones. long story short, don't be afraid to pick and mix :)

we hope you're inspired!
