“When I think about pinafores and jumpers and compromised purity, it’s actually quite punk. Go further back and it’s all about mod and Twiggy and dolly birds and thousands of school girls like me pouring over magazines, reading articles from the front lines of pop culture.”

Throughout her career, Anna Sui has summoned the youthful spirit of the school girl but was an edge, embracing the complexity of teen-hood. For the fall 1994 Schoolgirl collection, Sui focused on Yves Saint Laurent‘s most iconic designs, which she reinterpreted in high-tech sportswear materials.fall 1994 Schoolgirl collection, Sui focused on Yves Saint Laurent‘s most iconic designs, which she reinterpreted in high-tech sportswear materials.

Saint Laurent was also a superb colorist, as reflected in the collection’s use of bold colors. The sportswear sensibility extended to a series of outfits inspired by cheerleader uniforms, many of which Sui accessorized with pom-pom hats by James Coviello.

How to Put Together an Outfit: 5 Top Tips

Fashionistas

You work hard to look your best. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with great fashion skills. Some people need more fashion advice than others. One of the keys to making sure that your look stays current and on point is to learn the basics of how to put together an outfit. After all, the right outfit can make all the difference.

If you’ve been looking for help with how to match your clothes, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Keep reading to discover tips for cute outfits to wear so that you’ll look like a million bucks rather than a wrinkled old dollar bill.

  1. Build Your Outfit Around a Single Item

When great style isn’t exactly your main strength, you’d be wise to build your daily ensemble around a single item that you really love. This could be an amazing pair of shoes, a skirt, a killer top, or even a gorgeous necklace or bracelet that you’ve been wanting to showcase.

Once you’ve picked an item to work around, you can start adding other details that will really make your look pop. This is a great way to keep from getting overwhelmed in the decision-making process as you’re getting dressed.

If you’re looking for the perfect accessory for your outfit, shop Fendi bags at SSENSE.

  1. Don’t Be Afraid to Mix & Match

Learning to mix and match can take some practice, and yet this is the secret to maximizing the contents of your closet. When you get good at mixing and matching your clothes, you’ll quickly develop an eye for how to make 10 different outfits from a small variety of clothing, from jeans to skirts, to blouses, cardigan, and from heels to sandals. The sky is the limit, really. You might think that this is a patchwork approach to fashion, but it’s actually a ton of fun.

  1. Remember to Think Seasonal

One of the keys to keeping your fashion game really rocking is to change your wardrobe with the changing seasons. This includes the colors you choose to the footwear that you match with the appropriate outfit. Even if you live in an area where the weather stays warm year-round, you can still change up your looks from paler colors to bright floral prints, depending on the weather and the specific month of the year.

  1. Always Be On the Lookout for New Ideas

If you’re a ‘people watcher,’ remember to always be on the lookout for cute outfit ideas. After all, great inspiration is all around you if you just pay attention. You’ll learn a lot by studying the fashion game of both strangers on the street and those you admire.

  1. Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment

Never be afraid to experiment with your outfits. Be bold, be creative, and be willing to take risks, because that’s ultimately what fashion is all about. For some people, figuring out how to put together an outfit that looks great can be challenging. Fortunately, the tips contained here can help you start looking your best in no time

These Hot Pink custom boots, designed to mimic a pair of cat’s paws, were worn by pop star Katy Perry on her 2014 Prismatic Tour. Created by NYC-based design house The Blonds, the boots were part of a Pink Leopard-Print, Stretch Velvet Catsuit (seen below) worn by Perry onstage.

Costumes Sketches for Madonna

It can be argued that Gaultier virtually created Madonna’s Blonde Ambition tour persona with his elaborate corsets, bustiers and fetish-wear designed for the superstar and her dancers. Certainly there is ample evidence to that end on display here, in The Boudoir.
