In transitional periods we tend to wear lots of neutrals, especially off-white that mixes well with an array of mid-season accessories. Within this spectrum of cool choices we also adopt darker shades, such as black, midnight and navy blue. For FW15, black comes in abundance, but for the moment we can also spice it up with some pop of color! Since temperature slightly falls, we gradually adopt long sleeves or at least those at quarter length. This season designers also revisit your girly side with fit-and-flare silhouettes that magically create the hourglass optimum. With a few meaningful additions, your closet can get from basic to stunning and statement-making!
One of the most coveted brands in the contemporary market is Haute Hippie that gives you a daring version of the ‘boho chic’ or ‘jetsetter gypsy’ trend in 100% silk or other fine quality materials. Blake Lively, Heidi Klum, Beyoncé, Nicky Hilton and Adriana Lima are not the only hot girls on the planet to be spotted at least once wearing the brand! This time of the year, effortless chic might mean an Apache-inspired embellished maxi shirt-dress with a thigh-high side slit and long sleeves, as a balancing act!
Romanticism can be explored in ideas coming from the European fashion scene, mostly France. ‘Broderie anglaise’ and its eyelet pattern are still making waves. Actress Lily James, starring in the Cinderella movie and period drama Downtown Abbey, was featured on the March 2015 Issue of Vogue US, in a gorgeous Maje puffball dress which is now available on our site! It’s dreamy and easy-to-wear all day long, with long sleeves that protect your arms from midnight breeze. A braided trim in contrasting black is a subtle reference to the black & white trend of the season.
But one can get way more literal with this
trend by adopting neutral color-blocking the same way famous blogger Chiara Ferragni did during the NY Fashion Week, wearing a Sandro lace dress in black and off-white. It’s easy to imagine why such dresses sell out fast! Fabulous for a dinner party or a fancy date, this one also alludes to the other dominant trend, the 70’s, as recently reinterpreted by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. It’s also part of the knack for lingerie-inspired pieces! Sandro’s cute dresses have been picked by an array of best-dressed celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Pippa Middleton, Hilary Rhoda and Rachel Bilson. It’s your turn!
Another really romantic dress available in our store is the DVF Camila dress made from sheer chiffon in an ethereal style that actress and DVF Style Editor Jessica Joffe smartly combined with slip-on sneakers! With the right accessories, you can really dress down such a look, which sounds ideal to all busy moms and businesswomen around! Since then, the dress has been styled differently by various bloggers, including Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury and Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam. It’s so versatile!
For our brights-on-dark trend, we shall
keep a playful attitude, since many designers do it on the runways. Take for example the funky balloon print on this Kate Spade fit-and-flare dress. It’s so uplifting! Jane from FitFabFunMom.com complemented the cute motif with classy Valentino Rockstud red pumps and a Boy Chanel red python purse. But this is not the only way to do it! British MTV reporter Poppy Jamie was snapped in this dress next to top model Suki Waterhouse during a party back in December. She matched it with black platform sandals and it was equally attention-grabbing!
Polka dots dress are also cute and timeless. Diane Von Furstenberg makes a huge statement this season with her Catherine dress in red and orange ombre dots on black background. Miroslava Duma, fashion writer and founder of lifestyle platform Bureau247.com – who has been dressed in polka dots many times – paired it with black accessories for an ultra-feminine look. Actress Victoria Justice wore it recently at the DVF after party, while Karlie Kloss picked the maxi version of it at the CFDA Awards for extra sass & glam! So tempting!
You can roll your sleeves up, layer your dress over leggings, dress it down with flats, and glamorize it with statement jewelry, depending on your lifestyle and occasion. You can also pick among the neutrals or blights-on-dark trend, based on your relationship to color! But in any case, you already know where to shop the most coveted looks among fashionistas!
