Really, that’s what I am.
Sartorial Bartending is, I am sure, a term I’ve used before. But isn’t it just somewhat endearing to liken the act of combining outfit-centric prints to mixing drinks? It should be noted, after all, that the outcome of both tends to leave onlookers in the same shape: dizzy.
And while most my endeavors leave me (us?) in more layers than one should want to count, this video is about quality, not quantity. You see, what’s lovely about mixing prints doesn’t lay in the number of layers (see what I did there? Lay-ers) you can built onto yourself. Rather, the creativity you can implement using as few as possible.
With fashion week a mere several days away, and a pertinent 90 degree Saturday beating sun down our backs, here’s a short video tutorial to recognize the aforementioned: a melting pot that leaves a vertically striped blouse, horizontally striped shoes, burnt orange printed cropped trousers, houndstooth shades and a polka-dot denim hat–brought to you exclusively by the one and only: Naomi Shon–indigenous to (subjective) excellence.
Maybe sometimes less really is more.
