Flowers and Fashion
As spring approaches. I am not only excited for the warm weather and beautiful flowers; I am also very excited for all of the new fashion that is upon us. As spring arrives so do new trends. Some trends that I know I am going to be wearing this spring are cloudy pastels, bright colors, floral textures, and sheer.
In Chanel’s 2012 ready-to-wear spring collection, the models were dressed in many of these trends. My favorite is (left) a model wearing a two tone pastel pink textured top. The top looks like flowers placed beautifully against the models body. Now to counter all of the texture on the top half, the model was wearing tight black shorts. This look is perfect for a casual afternoon lunch, or just to hang out with friends. A textured top is a must have for every woman’s wardrobe.
In Louis Vuitton’s 2012 ready-to-wear spring collection, there was one ensemble in particular that I felt embodied the style of spring. This was a pastel yellow and white sheer skirt and top (right). With spring comes many graduation parties and afternoon luncheons and this outfit would be perfect for just that.
In Fendi’s 2012 ready-to-wear collection, there was one look that I felt truly captured both texture and sheer. The model was wearing a textured cardigan, but throughout the cardigan there were lines of sheer fabric (left). Fendi took an article of clothing which is usually quite modest and made it very revealing. So this spring do your research and take some risks! Fashion is always changing and so are we, go outside of your comfort zone, try some sheer, some textures and some pastels. You might just hit the nail on the head and pull yourself out of your winter funk!
