What a difference a statement coat makes. Stylist and blogger Maria Kolosova of Kyklamasha transforms a simple jeans-and-shirt combo with Tory’s Savora tweed coat — which adds instant graphic allure to those wardrobe staples — and finishes off the look with a pair of sexy stilettos and Tory’s crescent shoulder bag. Here, we dish fashion with the street-style star and get some of her top tips.
I really like different Aztec prints — they look really graphic. And I can’t live without a small drop of leopard print and stripes.
And when it comes to color…
I prefer a natural palette. Black, white, beige, gray, blue — then repeat.
I am 200% a shoes person. I always travel with additional luggage because of the shoes. Yes, I need all of them: ankle boots, over-the-knee boots, pumps, sandals, sneakers. Literally: ALL of them! But the right bag is also very important. By the way, I’m in love with this Tory Burch crescent shoulder bag in deep blue — the round shape looks so fresh!
Sometimes I can play with layering, thanks to sweaters, ponchos and different type of capes. But I prefer a more clean silhouette and styling.
And day-to-night dressing…
The suit! You can start with “tomboy” in the morning, which means sneakers and a backpack, and then turn into a diva at night with high heels, dark wine lipstick and a little metallic clutch.
The key to taking a good street-style photograph…
It’s all about the moment. And the right photographer, of course, because I really believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
