Here’s what to put your money on this season
The Ruffled Blouse
Call it Victorian, say it’s Spanish. No matter where it got its influence from, the ruffled blouse is back. Wear it with sleeves for that hot secretary vibe or bodycon for that femme fatale appeal.
Heels are finally taking a well deserve break. In its place are mules that promise to let you hover close to the ground. Sans gravity defying antics, your feet and back will thank you for this.
Making a statement just got easier with super bold chokers. From Phillip Lim’s heavy duty chain link versions to Armani’s hook-on wire interpretations to Dior’s scarf-like numbers, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Now this is one trend you won’t want to slip you by. This light and airy lingerie spin off is perfect for the tropics. Wear it on its own, over a tee or under a turtleneck, your call.
Pull any look together with a belt. For the illusion of a tiny waist, reach for a wide belt. Perfect for slimming down boxy blouses and trimming down the silhouette of a frilly dress.
The White Shirt
The boyfriend’s white shirt is making a resurgence albeit with a decidedly more feminine slant – fitted with big bows, extra long sleeves, asymmetrical hems. This is one shirt we won’t be sharing with him.
There’s denim, then there’s designer denim. What’s the difference? The fit of course. The closest thing to denim, designer denim construction is engineered to bring out the best of your [body] proportions. Longer legs, check, tighter butt, check. Tiny waist, check.
