A Look I Like: Eclectic Accents
(TheSartorialist.com - March 17, 2009)
I find myself drawn to the eccentric touches in this look: satin turban, antique starburst earrings, turquoise python clutch. I'm not sure how this would play out in real life, but against the basic palette of camel, white, and black, it certainly illustrates "classic with a twist."
I loved when Prada showed this satin turban on the s/s 2007 runway show. It looked exotic and bold. Vanessa Traina and Rachel Roy have been photographed looking very stylish while sporting this headpiece, but I'm not one to assume that I can pull it off myself.
Mainly this photo reminds me of what a statement accessories can make... And that a rich burgundy and bright turquoise look quite striking together!
