we can’t get enough of the spring time outfits. we must be ready to rid our closets of the plain colors and make room for new and fresh items. i know i wore a lot of black this winter.
for a little extra inspiration, we pulled beatrice away from her internship at who what wear and after a trip to the friday farmer’s market we rowed along the venice canals to let the sun shine on our faces.
here is what she has to say:
while it’s safe to say that sequins never really left the trend radar, most of the 2013 runway shows sported dresses, pants and shirts that glimmered in the catwalk lights. previously, sequins have been attributed to nights out on the town, and the only acceptable sequined outfits were those that were adorned in moderation. now, designers squeezed models into entire outfits that were purely glitter and shimmer.
that’s when i found this dress in my closet. completely embroidered on the top, and a beige high-low at the bottom, it seems to be an extravagant dress that never really found it’s way into any of my formal events or dinner dates. the beauty of this dress lies with how the pailettes work together with the sheer high-low. combined with neutral colors, sequins are day-time suitable, which is what this dress is all about. now that sequins are acceptable for day-time attire—hooray!—i knew that this dress was ready to leave the hanger.
not too flashy, not too casual—and the cut-out sides take away from the “girly” factor and make it a little more playful.
so don’t limit yourself to neon colors and floral prints; try the sequin trends and look tres chic for the beautiful spring days.
thanks to beatrice for being a superb model.
