Spring fashion

29 03 2011

This is what women will be loving in the spring season!

Maxi dresses

The first piece of clothing that is starting to be loved by women are magnificent maxi dresses, very colourful and with different exotic patterns. Perfect for these nice spring days where you can enjoy a nice walk in the sun in a super-stylish way!

Lace clothing

No, it’s not new. But it’s so IN now!  And to look even more fabulous you just have to wear lace clothes with quality antique-style fabrics! You’ll look fancy for special occasions or casual to go out in the city.


Tassels

Sometimes a little detail is all it takes to change a particular item that you might consider old-fashioned. In spring 2011, one of the most popular ‘accessories’ for bags, shoes and hats are little fancy tassels!


Tail hems

This name is given to a particular style of dress that is longer at the back and shorter in front. They’ve been seen as an alternative to the summer mini skirt or, sometimes, maxi dress, and for spring/summer 2011 ‘tail hems’ continue to inspire more and more fashion designers!


Stripes

Stripes are a dominant part of any spring/summer season, although they usually change theme from year to year. Spring 2011 sees stripes with a predictable ‘sailor style’ so you can look forward to breezy, relaxed summer days frolicking in the sun.

 

Jumpsuits and playsuits

There’s something strange about these items: one season they’re in, the next season they’re out. For spring/summer 2011 they’re back again, ready to fight off the other fashion trends with a ‘grungy’ style.

What are men wearing this winter?

Summer is the season where you wear as few clothes as possible, but in winter how can you not wear layers? In this post I’m going to talk about menswear, specifically, because we don’t want them to feel chilly either, do we? Whether it’s socks, jumpers, jackets, all we need in this season is COLOUR!

All summer, men were rolling up their trousers to just above their ankles:


 

In winter a few knitted items are essential. The brighter the colours, the better! Try this look to be cozy and fashionable at the same time:

 

If you prefer knitted jumpers, something that your gran could have knitted mixed with an ultra chic knitted animal pattern is perfect for you:

 

A suit is essential in your wardrobe – every man just HAS to have at least one good suit! By suit I mean a (possibly tweed) jacket, shirt, blazer, trousers, tie and a pocket for your fancy handkerchief.

 

What about a smart bow tie to look like  James Bond? These are especially great for suits that you’ll wear on special occasions!

 

And it looks like “aviator fashion” is very “IN” this winter for women and men, too! How about fancy Cufflinks?





Winter Must-Haves

9 12 2010

The aviator jacket

Would you have ever guessed? The aviator jacket, fur-lined sheepskin, is in every autumn/winter collection – from designer labels to more affordable ones. If you already have one hidden at the bottom of your wardrobe, go and throw it on again!

 

Camel colour

The most famous fashion designers say that this will be the colour of the season: classic camel, a typical late 60-early 70’s colour and one of the most fashionable trends of the season.


Loafers

Don’t you like loafers? Well, you should know that this winter every ‘Gossip Girl’ character will wear them, and all women who want to dress up casual and elegant will too. Let your feet rest after the wedges you wore this summer!


High-waisted skirts

These too will probably be hidden in some drawer, but you can finally wear them again! Skirts, shorts, trousers… This ‘return from the past’ is being loved from the fashionistas!


Classic footwear

Elegant, chic, feminine… These classic shoes are a must-have of the season, even though it’s quite cold! You can wear them with everything!



The bag ‘folder’

Introduced by leading designers and the most famous accessory-makers, the bag ‘folder’ is on display in every shop, from the Birkin Bag of Hèrmes to the simple bag ‘folder’ of H&M!


Ethnic prints

Ethnic prints stand out in autumn/winter collections and their colorful notes are perfect with the gray shades of winter!


The cape

Perhaps you’ve noticed it in the shops: this winter hoods and capes will be very popular! You can wrap up in them and they are perfect for a glam touch!


Checked prints

Skirts, jackets, accessories…

Brands are competing to show us all the checked prints in their winter collections!


Jeggings

A mix between the words jeans and leggings because… well, that’s what they are! Suitable for every occasion and loved by all the celebrities.
