    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    Muted Prints


    "Prints are loud. Prints can only be paired with neutrals. Prints are hard to match. Prints are hard to wear. I'm not edgy enough for prints. Prints are for the summer.
    All false."









    Mandarin Jacket - Arkins // Asym Sleeve Sweater - Not // Pad Pleated Skirt - Not // Necklaces - Abby Carnevale (and this) // Booties - BCBG // Flash Tattoos - Lulu DK 

    People are generally intimidated by prints.
    Prints are loud. Prints can only be paired with neutrals. Prints are hard to match. Prints are hard to wear. I'm not edgy enough for prints. Prints are for the summer.
    All false. Prints can be all those things but they are not always all of those things. In the Winter, I still like to play with prints. The best way to think about prints, especially when you're scared of it, is to focus on the colors. Play on subtle similarities on the colors and easy patterns. The checkerboard jacket and the patterned skirt unexpectedly compliment each other because of the neutral base. To maintain the same color family, I topped the skirt with a simple blue sweater. Add a different shade of blue, turquoise to be exact, to make it more interesting. In the winter, I would stay away from floral and tropical prints. There's plenty of other prints still in the game that suits the chilly season - stripes, polka dots, paisley, abstract shapes, and more. This look is great because muted prints are easy to wear but still comes off trendy. You can easily wear this look with boots and walk to the groceries, head to dinner in heels, and then drinks with the girls. It's still playful especially with the skirt yet subtle due to the colors. And my corporate #NECKBRKRS, don't be scared to incorporate prints! Some colors to play with are black, burgundy, gray, forest green, and brick. When I'm not ranting on about life, I can be pretty knowledgable on style. Ha!

    Tomorrow is the Sweater Party event. You can buy this entire outfit and have some one on one styling session with me or just come by to shop and fill your tummy with sweets and drinks. All the event details are below. See you all there!
