April 2012 Lookbook: Urban Playground

Omiru's April 2012 Lookbook: Urban Playground
This look is part of Omiru’s April 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece April 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

We’re dreaming of the carefree days of childhood - of playground games, of laughter and fun, of adventure in the ordinary.  But even if your spring days are destined to be spent in a metropolis, you need not lose the playfulness in your style. For the urban playground, keep the simple silhouettes - updating them with more sophisticated fabrics, patterns, and colors.  Also keep your sense of serendipity and wonder - which will help you navigate the urban playground just as well as you ruled the neighborhood playground way back when.

1. Start with a chic but comfortable foundation: an oversized cropped tee paired with a buttery pair of knee length leather shorts.  The cropped tee works with the high rise on the short and calls attention to the leg-lengthening silhouette.
2. Enough black and white with this foundation - it’s time to add color!  Toss on a cardigan in a bright yellow to offset the black and white of the tee and shorts.  Bonus points for toting around a handbag in a complementary bright color - notice how the turquoise bag adds an extra dimension to the yellow, black, and white of the look.
3. Finish off the look with accessories with an edge - a pair of studded gladiator sandals, a leather wrap bracelet with a skull motif, and a retro chic pair of sunglasses. 

What do you wear to navigate the urban playground?
