This summer is crazy! Fashionable is almost… everything! There are no excuses not to find something that will satisfy even the most exigent tastes! More: now it`s the perfect time to get out of the comfort zone and give a change to trends that otherwise would have never been in your closet… all you have to do is to give them a TRY!
I would have to resume a discussion about dresses, then VARIETY would be the perfect word. Different lengths, asymmetries, deep splits, around the neck or with generous cleavage, midi, minimalists, pleated or with peplum… just to name a few. With textures things get even better: mat or transparent, fluid, delicate, wrinkled, perforated, with fringes, lace or embrodery. Everything for an elegant and easy to wear outfit!
Regarding colors, pastels have been present for a long time, keeping their note of sensuality and good taste intact. The metal tones are on the wave, but the real trend are electrifying, vivid colors…like neon (as long as they are used correctly). The fun gets here when we talk about prints or patterns; you don`t stand a change upon their charm! They always send a state of mind: it can be delicate, subtle or imposing, with fruits or vegetables (creating something slightly childish) , the classic animal prints (zebra, leopard or snake) or the classical animals (cats, dogs, birds, etc). For dynamic the best choice are those with geometrical shapes, tribal representations or unique combinations.
I specially dedicated this article to floral prints. Regardless of being my favorites, this type of prints were (and still are) present on the runaways for several seasons. You can easily accentuate femininity and freshness with their help; and not even mention the wide selection of digitized, painted or printed fabrics. In a time of romanticism and romance , what else to create than an outfit full of color and flowers?
My choice? A statement print: huge flowers, pink and orange, surrounded by a blend of strong colors. The perfect length? Maxi dress; touching the ground, flowing and imposing, all the way to the ankles. It was made from two layers of mat veil: the first one, extremely transparent, was doubled by the second one, with an apricot color, without altering the overall intensity of the print. The extra detail can be seen on the arm cuff and waist: monochromatic vivid green tubular beads, from http://www.margele.net. Originality and sophistication! Enjoy!
