Diane von Furstenberg
, in an interview with ABC News
, discussed her essentials this spring season
listing her top three picks for spring. A fan of this big name in the fashion industry
. Because business remains business, I´m not surprised to see that the list shadows the essential features of her DVF Spring 2012 RTW.
So what does DVF wants us all to have in our closets this spring?
1. A white Dress
Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2012 catwalk opened with a gorgeous white wrap dress, and logically we would understand that now. A white dress is the number one on the list, and we couldn’t agree more! It´s dainty and clean, soft under the sun, and quite easy to dress up and down. It´s like styling a clean sheet, you start from scratch and can have fun with the colors and accessories.
2. Utilitarian Florals
I think we all know by now that bold floral prints are a primary trend for spring and summer 2012. But according to Diane, its not just any floral dress that does the trick. DVF describes the right florals to be blooming with an overall utilitarian shape. In simpler terms, go for floral prints that are trendy and creatively designed, but remain functional rather than exaggerated.
So there you have it ladies, when shopping for that floral summer dresses , remember what DVF said to look for in a printed dress.
Power pastel trend is a must for just about all the designers this seasons, and DVF is not an exception. Rest assured, you can most definitely go out in your statement pastel combo!
Diane von Furstenberg, however, doesn´t go for a typical pastel matching and colorblocking, she aims at unusual pastel combinations. For example, go for pastel orange trousers, a neon green shirt, pulled together with a pastel gray jacket and, well, a slim contrast belt. Or opt for a layered dress with surprising pastel design. Now this woman knows what she is talking about!
So there we have our top 3 picks for DVF, shall we head off to the mall and start stashing some florals and pastels, after all, we do have DVF’s blessing!
