STYLING MARRISA WILSON NY
Today I would like to present to you a project that I’m really proud of. Remember that I attended the Marrisa Wilson NY NYFW F/W17 presentation? It’s a fairly new brand, and I just loved being introduced to it. I got together with Marrisa and chose my three favorite items to style in this story for you guys (I’ve also posted a few different shots on my Instagram).
The F/W ’17 collection is a modern reinterpretation of 1970’s New York. Marrisa had the idea of creating the coolest ‘Girl Gang’ inspired from a group of strong women she had been working with in developing her brand. The key concepts for the collection are plush velvets, luxurious furs, and funky printed plaid artwork. I’ve chosen to style two different jackets, a dark caramel velvet bomber and a yellow track jacket, and the cutest ruffled velvet top in dark blue.
BLUE VELVET MARCY RUFFLE TOP
I immediately fell in love with this ruffled top in the softest velvet. I wanted to pair the midnight blue with the crisp white shirt and fun jeans for a casual twist. And then a pair of simple but statement earrings. It’s a top that can be dressed down for work and dressed up for a night out, and I love that about it.
YELLOW TWILL JONES TRACK JACKET W/ BROWN FUR
COLLAR AND VELVET STRIPES
This jacket was probably the one I noticed first at the presentation back at NYFW. Maybe because of its yellow color, maybe because it has some really cool 70’s tracksuit references. Maybe both. I just love it. I paired it with army green culottes, white sneaks, and feminine accessories. It’s more of a laid back day-look, and perfect for discovering the city.
DARK CARAMEL VELVET BOMBER
This last outfit is more of a statement. I love how the jacket capture the sunlight and become golden. It’s so soft, and I felt very comfortable in this outfit (not to talk about how many compliments I got). I definitely need this jacket in my wardrobe! I paired it with a sporty tee, fun jeans, white sneaks, and cool accessories for some extra detail.
