California-based Roz Kaur (56) works as a senior stylist at Anthropologie, and documents her outfits on Instagram. Her style is chic eclectic, fashion-forward, individual, and maximal. Roz wears neutrals and colours, solids and patterns with equal aplomb. Her short ‘do and oversized specs are an integral part of her style, as are hats and piles of jewellery.

“I would call my style ‘untucked glamor’ with an emphasis on ‘untucked’!!! Right now I’m into suiting. While I love beautiful things I like to add a piece to throw my look off a bit so I don’t look too put together! I regard age as a privilege. So now instead of looking cute, or pretty, I want gravitas and elegance.  A big part of this means being true to my style and aligning myself with the way I feel on the inside.”

Western meets Hard Edge meets Glam. Roz is wearing a sequined midi dress in a brownish gold that sparkles with every movement. A wide dark brown belt cinches in the waist, and semi matches our blogger’s patent cappuccino cowboy boots that also bring shine to the outfit. The black vegan leather midi coat is the Hard Edge element that creates a fun irregular outfit juxtaposition against the glam sequins. The brown teddy lining adds softness and introduces a third shade of brown. Roz’s suede fold-up clutch is the fourth shade of brown, and doesn’t perfectly match but works splendidly with the rest of the colour palette. A wide-brimmed hat and Roz’s trademark specs add extra flair.

Roz combines a Western classic — the black and white pinstriped suit — with a traditional Indian sari in this striking stripes outfit. The stricter business-like vibe of the suit contrasts cleverly with the elegant drape of the gauzy sari. The suit’s vertical stripes draw the eye up and down, while the way the sari is wrapped creates a curvier stripe pattern that adds a sense of movement. Black slippers echo Roz’s dark hair. Piles of silver chunky bracelets, anklets, rings, and necklaces create a maximal effect without feeling overwhelming. Large hoop earrings match in scale with Roz’s black-rimmed square-shaped glasses. Brick red lippy adds subtle colour.

Roz has tucked a simple black crew-neck top into a Winter white vegan leather A-line skirt. Tucking the top lengthens the leg line from the hips upward. The thin white stripe on our blogger’s sheer white hose also adds vertical integrity in a subtle way. Refined black suede stiletto pumps add height, and bookend Roz’s dark hair. The long oversized blazer in toffee throws a third neutral into the mix. It takes centre stage with its boxy on-trend silhouette and Winter white lining peeking out. A clever design detail that makes the edges of the blazer blend in with the skirt, thus softening cutting horizontal lines. Roz finishes off this chic polished look with a structured satchel, thin layered pendants and small stud earrings.

Roz adores a caftan dress, and enjoys styling them in various creative ways. Here, she is keeping it simple, letting the voluminous black boho-lite maxi dress with V-neckline do all the talking. The beautiful blue and marigold floral embroidery on the sleeves adds vibrant colour. The marigold chain stitching running along the collar and all the way down to the hemline creates vertical integrity. Chunky black sandals with rose gold studs and rows of stud earrings add a Hard Edge touch. In a very polished way, so does her spiky-styled ‘do. And as always, Roz’s oversized specs add graphic drama.

Maximal pattern mixing at its best! Roz has paired silky cropped dressy trousers with a light-weight V-neck wrap dress. The trousers feature a red, cream, blue and black small-scale graphic dotted pattern that is in bold contrast with the large-scale floral and animal print of the green maxi dress. They don’t match at all, but the black accents in both garments create visual cohesion. Blue and green ankle-strap stiletto sandals further tie it all together. The boho glam headscarf repeats the dress’ pattern. A silver pendant fills in the V-neckline. Huge silver hoops, oversized tortoise-rimmed glasses and dark red lipstick complete the look

Roz is embracing the volume in this on-trend unstructured midi shirtdress in fawn. The oversized silhouette and lightweight fabric make it a breezy option if you prefer to wear sleeved dresses on a hot day. A pair of refined tall white cowboy boots add a Western touch and crisp polish to this polished casual Summer look. They match the white buttons on the dress, while the cognac zipper and soles match our blogger’s unstructed soft leather satchel. A straw fedora with thin brown ribbon and light-rimmed sunnies tie in perfectly with the neutral colour palette. Roz finishes off the look with a large watch, cocktail ring and a chunky bangle.
