Local fashion muse Janine Gutierrez was very recently in the US for a secret project (we can't wait to find out what it is!), and you can bet she was taking over all our Instagram feeds with one gorgeous OOTD after another.
Now, backgrounds are just as important as the pièce de résistance—aka you—so it's crucial to be able to "blend in" without turning into a literal wallflower. Let Janine demonstrate the trick!
This outfit, put together by stylist MJ Benitez, is stunning in its simplicity, and that's the entire point. It's the perfect look to pose amongst Los Angeles' famous LACMA posts in: subdued yet a standout. She blends in, but doesn't get lost in her backdrop's iconic intricacy.
MJ says, "For this particular look, she wore a Vania Romoff midi dress with ribbon straps (it looks better up close because the lace, which was sourced in Korea, features intricate florals!) and paired it with large gold hoops for some extra zing. As for the denim jacket, it's an oversized style that she's owned since she was one year old! She really wears it with literally everything."
