Get the look: Fashion Star episode 6
Fashion is all about pushing boundaries to get noticed. In true Fashion Star style, the judges and buyers pushed designers this week to create looks out of their comfort zones to help take their talent to the next level.
Did you fall in love with one of the looks? I take my favorite look from the night and show you how to get the look for less as your resident style guy.
I love jackets and blazers (and basically wear one every day). I strongly believe every woman needs a structured jacket in her wardrobe because you can easily dress it up or down. Pair a black or cream blazer with a simple blouse and a pencil skirt or straight-leg pant for the office and then throw on skinny jeans and a killer pair of heels for a night out.
Just keep in mind the fit. You need to make sure the shoulder seam fits perfectly and does not droop down onto the arm. An ill-fitting jacket will just look like you are trying to fit into someone else’s clothes.
Fact. You really won’t be classified as a real designer until you create a collection that’s innovative, cohesive and abstract, yet wearable. Basically, you need to be a risk taker. "If you play it safe, things just get boring," mentor Nicole Richie said. Fortunately, the designers had the chance to really test themselves when designing pieces they’ve never done before.
This week, I loved Luciana’s cropped jackets. Normally known for her fun and flirty dresses, she definitely stepped out of her comfort zone designing something with structure. She even started a bidding war between Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue! (You know I love a little fashion fight.) Macy’s bought her jackets for $100,000!
