Refinery29 has entered the print space with their new book STYLE STALKING. The tome, co-written by Editor-in-Chief, Christene Barberich and Creative Director, Piera Gelardi, doesn’t shy away from the brightest of streetstyle (in fact, it features a whole section on brights).
It’s safe to say that this isn’t a book about timeless style. It’s a book about self-expression and how some of the industry’s most expressive keep their creative juices flowing on a large scale and on a smaller scale (that is to say: does leopard mix with plaid or stripes or both or neither?). The mantra of the book can be boiled down to it’s cover flap quote: “Why choose basic anything when you can shine instead?”
Here are three expert tips we’ll be implementing ASAP:
Solange Knowles on Brights:
Q: What are three items you think every woman should try in a bright instead of a neutral?
A: A turtleneck, a plain T-shirt, and a simple leather bag.
Leandra Medine on Metallics:
Q: What’s the secret to doing metallics during the day (without looking like you’re doing a walk of shame?).
A: My rule with sequins is that if I’m wearing them, I also have to be wearing either sneakers or denim.
Caroline Issa on Ladylike Style:
Q: What’s the finishing item you find yourself constantly reaching for to take your outfits to the next level?
A: A swipe of red lipstick and a great pair of earrings always do the trick for me.
