Fashion Tarts | SS14 Trends

There’s nothing like new arrivals being strutted on the widows of shops, talk about getting us all worked up! 

It’s always very tempting to rush into stores and buy all the new looks they have their mannequins decorated with , but to ensure you don’t end up frittering away funds,  

fashion tarts’ has done some window shopping on your behalf.

Culottes are the trouser shape of the season and look great worn with high heel pumps and a crisp white shirt

Sheer was used by many designers this season. Wear with a sweatshirt on cooler days or a boxy crop top for summer.

Who can forget Burberry’s candy striped show finale under falling rose petals back in September? We are certain they will in no doubt be much imitated on the high street.

Totally Trending | Baroque Prints

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).

Hervé Léger

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.

YOUNG TALENTS: Michael Van Der Ham SS2012

The 26 years old is a Dutch fashion designer, who studied fashion at Central Saint MartinsLondon & managed to have internships at Sophia Kokosalaki and Alexander McQueen.

Van der Ham’s SS2012 collection was inspired by “Andy Warhol‘sdresses 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…
