In this new series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What's Right Now every weekend, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. This week, we’re featuring Roshena Minnes. Green is not a color I normally wear, but it is surprisingly wearable! I created this look (I made the dress by tying two Walnutte silk scarves together) to wear to a friend's wedding and received many compliments on the colors. I was inspired by the "30 Ways to Update Your Look " feature in InStyle's Your Look issue to take the gown from summer to fall with the help of a leather jacket to lend some edge. I then added a pair of black suede lace-up booties with a lug sole to tie the look together.
