Mixing and matching patterns and trends within your wardrobe is risky. Sometimes it can look very haute couture, and other times it can result in a fashion faux pas. La La Land star, Emma Stone, took the pattern-mixing plunge at the La La Land Paris premiere and her efforts paid off. Stone combined three current trends in one outfit and we’re questioning everything we thought we knew about fashion.
Stone rocked this Chanel number from the designer’s ready-to-wear Métiers D’Art 2016/17 collection. With a beaded floral bodice, fringed tweed skirt, and traces of metallic all over, this dress can certainly be called a “bold statement.”
You’re probably looking at the dress and trying to figure out how it’s all working. Well, first of all let’s look at the coherent color scheme.
The rusty red and black in the bodice is continued throughout the weaving on the skirt, tying the two pieces together. The use of bronze and gold-colored sequins on the tweed skirt ties back into the orange, yellow, and warm green tones used in the bodice. The whole creation is within the same natural-toned color palette, making it easy on the eyes even though there is a lot going on.
