An outlandish statement piece can be a styling challenge. The wrong complementary pieces can take something from attention-grabbing and tastefully wackadoodle to just plain weird. But model and all-around fashion plate Lourdes Leon has figured out how to balance out a psychedelic piece. Leon stepped out in SoHo, New York to do a bit of shopping this weekend, and put on her best statement skirt for the occasion, choosing a below-the-knee style in a colorful, psychedelic print. The pink, blue, green, and orange skirt itself was loud, Leon’s outfit as a whole wasn’t. Let us explore this mini masterclass, shall we?
Leon, who is Madonna’s daughter, styled it with sporty pieces, such as a classic black hoodie and a pair of bright blue Nike sneakers, which coordinated smartly with the skirt’s color scheme. The hoodie, in particular, made the whole look seem chill and laissez-faire—as though she just rolled out of bed. Lourdes’s large hoop earrings and a little shoulder bag made it crystal clear that this is still a fashion girl’s look. Lesson learned: if you ever fall in love with a brazen piece but are unsure about how to wear it, just look to your coziest hoodie. It can make just about anything feel less precious or over-the-top.
