Want to pay tribute to some super fresh-faced design talents? Show up to Pratt's annual fashion show-and toast this year's special guest Hamish Bowles-wearing pieces from some really stand-out up-and-comers. If you're still looking for an outfit, Erica Cerulo of limited-editions site Of a Kind has put together some great outfit ideas to get you started!
1. This VPL dress manages to be sleek, slouchy, sexy, and low-key all at once, and the amber hue is neutral without washing you out (or encouraging you to pile on the bronzer.)
2. Open any fashion magazine this month, and you're bound to see a roundup of flatforms. Even Jeffrey Campbell, king of the ultra-high stacked heel, is getting into the game with this awesome two-tone pair.
3. Los Angeles designer Clare Vivier-who just opened her first retail space- makes minimalist clutches in fantastically rich hues. They compete with the most aggressive statement bags without looking like they're trying to compete.
4. To avoid looking like a too self-serious fashion girl, pile on a few jewel-encrusted Frieda and Nellie friendship bracelets from NYC-based besties Stacy Herzog and Sarah Reid.
Erica Cerulo is the co-founder of limited-editions site Of a Kind and a newly minted fashion contributor at Guest of a Guest.
