The Runway Recycled: Anna Sui’s Unexpected Mixes!

Another great fall collection that are we smitten with is Anna Sui. She always turns out fabulous prints in fun and exciting hues and patterns, but this season we love the way she mixed unexpected colors and textures. We’ve covered mixing prints before, but now we’ll show you how to throw some heavier textures into the mix for fall!

Here’s the looks we were inspired by from the designer’s fall show:

Fur Trim Cardigan- WR sz M $28

Blouse- Volcom sz XS $12

Skirt- Anthropologie sz 4 $ 48

Belt- Ellen Tracy sz S $12

Wooden Bead Necklace- $16

Lac up Bootie- Steve Madden sz 9 $68

Mix red and pink together for an unexpected ensemble. We chose a fun fur trimmed candy apple red cardigan and paired it with a raspberry tweed skirt. We added a sheer printed blouse to balance out the two bright pieces. The print works with them because it has a bit of red in it, as well as some gray which acts as a neutral!

Long Cardigan- Soft Surroundings sz S/M $28

Mesh Printed Top- Karen Kane sz S $12

Skirt- Sevier Skirts sz 8 $100

Belt- Bebe sz S $16

Necklace- Express $24

Suede Booties- J Jill sz 7 $68

Mix textures and patterns with pieces that are all from the same or similar color families for an interesting and eye catching ensemble! We paired a mesh top with a metallic printed skirt and comfy cardigan. Add the suede booties and we’ll be surprised if someone doesn’t think you walked right off of the runway 😉


Tweed Jacket- Joan Collins sz 8 $20

Sheer Printed Blouse- Quintessential sz S $28

Striped Skirt- Free People sz 4/6 $32

Silver Necklace- $10

Gold Necklace- Fleur De Lis $24

Oversized Chunky Scarf- Twinkle by Wenlan $68

Booties- BCBGirl sz 9.5 $12

Pair a striped skirt with a floral blouse and a textured jacket for an easy, chic look. Want to channel Anna Sui’s show even more? Just add some bright coral tights to the mix!

Now get to mixing and matching!

 Not quite sure how to make a piece work? Bring it in and we’ll help you put something together Anna Sui-style!
