So some of the more raved shows are FEMININE!!!! Yeah – that beautiful female silhouette is coming back!
Yeah – I’m sick of the nude – and frankly bored with it which is a terrible comment on the state of nudity – oh ho hum another nipple or pubic hair. I remember when the thought of a sneak peak at a nipple was risque and I’m not sure it isn’t more than showing it – after all it’s the anticipation that’s really sexy.
Here are a couple of silhouettes, and the first thing you’ll notice is a waist. The second thing is more feminine silhouette.
But what is worth noting are the fabrics – remember this is Spring 2016, so they’re lighter and airier. But they are also pretty and delicate.
And again I’m bored of the exposed body look. It not only looks better, but fresher (I morphed out the exposure on the right phot), when it’s either got a cami behind, or a more opaque underlining, which is so easy to do.
You still get the sheer look but without all the exposure.
Ruffles are also hot – or rather there’s a lot of them…
Erdem does them a little more tempered and sophisticated.
While Mary Katrantzou does a little more edgy ruffle. Basically I like Katrantzou for how to mix prints – no one does this more masterfully than Katrantzou.
Finally Temperley – an little more conservative has her own take on ruffles but with a Latin Flare.
Both of these are silhouettes to drool for (The photos are larger so click to see a larger version. Love the print layout on the left dress.
What’s to take away here is a more Latin influence.
So how do you translate these Spring fashions into a winter wardrobe. There’s some of these you can take directly like these:
This is an easy do here – a straight takeaway as a tunic or loose jacket over leggings or pants. For winter this is a great look.
Pink is a little more spring, but a good strong color like red or even a strong green (not too yellow – more teal or forest) will work great for fall, and go right into spring. Also a silver grey is a great color that transcends seasons.
I also love the hat!
