I couldn’t help myself but comment on one of the latest trends this season – Baroque. It seems to be everywhere! It’s uber feminine, sophisticated, and definitely makes a statement. Amongst high street it is Topshop that does some great trousers and dresses with a baroque finish. As far as designers are concerned, It would have to be Dolce & Gabbana.
Baroque’s fashion renaissance popped off in the late 1980s, when Milan-based Gianni Versace turned the Italian artistic tradition into wild pop art, replacing the angels and cherubs of Italian frescos with gold chains, Medusa heads and leopard skins printed on shiny silk. Luckily for us, these gorgeous patterns are firmly back on the fashion agenda. So just think flashy chain prints intertwined with animal and floral motifs on everything from dresses and tops to accessories (for a more low-key look).
Here we are again, giving some more thanks to all those fashionables out there who give us tips, inspo, and ideas for outfits we want to try but never seem to get to it! Take a look at these gorgeous outfits which inspired me to dig deeper into my wardrobe…
I don’t have an issue with Hervé Léger at all. In fact, I think the bandage dress has now become a modern classic. But it can get quite tricky when deciding on how to wear the dress. Here’s a quick guide to keep in mind if you would like to keep it safe, elegant, and simple. However, if you are quite the expert, then by all means go for that bright one!
Step One: Stick to soft colours, like off-white bandage dresses
Step Two: Add a tailored blazer or jacket, silk blazers for example
Step Three: Ditch the fringed shoe-boots, and opt for a pair of heels in a metallic shade.
Van der Ham’s SS2012 collection was inspired by “Andy Warhol‘s” dresses which he designed in the 70s using couture dresses by significant designers as a project for an exhibition curated by Diane Vreeland, the collection was a great success due to its unique and out standing idea although it was mainly in blacks and grays. His new collection for Summer/Spring 2012 took place at London Fashion week and was absolutely one of the best shows. The collection was full of colors, prints and texture all combined together to create a very wearable collage, his cuts are beautiful and it compliments women’s body and curves, his accessories and shoes are no exception they had the same concept of collage which we can call it a Van der Ham’s trademark…
Lets face it, we all wait to see what celebrities have in store for us in terms of fashion so we can get some inspiration ourselves! We all can name a couple of celebrity styles that always seem to match our own taste, and wait impatiently for every appearance they have hoping for another great look! Catch these must try spring trends from your favorite celebrities as they show us how fashion is truly done (um worn?). I personally have to try a hot pink dress as well as a peplum dress (I also love the sheer but not necessarily with prints – unless its an eye catcher!)
