Spring is here! This season is all about fresh silhouettes, bold colors and loud prints. Winter featured bright hues and fun cuts, but this spring break mold and strut your confidence with flirty and light apparel.
Compare the new Diane von Furstenberg collection to a date with a surfer boy. Uncomplicated, easy-to-wear and comfy fashion, it’s great for chilly evenings at the beach bar. Bright-colored stripes and floral prints dominate the dresses whose styles range from long beach dresses to mini sundresses. As the visual spring for the line, her pants come in pink or light blue. Furstenberg’s collection offers a style unlike any other designer and will undoubtedly add beauty to your closet.
Living spring like a rockstar is this season’s motto for Louis Vuitton. Hard cuts, animal elements and dangerous designs added with brightly colored belts or hats create a spring fashion statement that screams nonchalant, but still very sexy. This season’s ultimate outfit could be strappy tank with a snake print skirt and metallic purse. Just add some dark black eyeliner and you can call yourself a rock-chick! My personal must have items are their platform feather sandals. Playfully colored elements remind me of summer necklaces, and the feathers are just gorgeous.
Of course there is also fashion for those of us who like it less dangerous and more girly. Lacoste could be the right choice for a movie night with the girls or a late night park date with the boyfriend. Simple items like comfy cardigans for chilly nights or the classic polo shirt are designer Christopher Lemaire’s secret spring recipe. Lacoste rises to a new level in pop culture with this new line. For example, Britney Spears wore the traditional pink Polo in her music video for ‘If You Seek Army.’ This line relies on earthy tones like white, beige and gray. Pair them with brightly colored pants and accessories and you have a killer outfit.
The new designs for beachwear are awesome. Warm up for summer with colorful swimsuits and the accessories that go with them. To cover yourself from sunburn, maybe the black and white Anna Sui hat with wooden applications is the right spring item for you. We are still living in Florida, and a red face wouldn’t look good with these new items.
Spring promises your feet new flip flops from Tory Burch. A little expensive, but definitely worth it, because the braided leather and yellow sunflower applications bring us back to the hippie love and bohemian style of the seventies.
Combined with a nice pedicure in yellow, white or orange, those shoes are THE must have item this spring.
Since it is getting hot outside few of us want to wear tight shirts or pants. We better go for the stylish tunics and shorts from Missoni or Marc Jacobs.
The striped prints come in light blue, velvet, green and white and remind me of a ride in an old red convertible into the sunset.
Marc Jacobs also pushes the style of swimsuit to another level. The bikini definitely dominates the bathing suit this season. With dangerous back views and very bright colors, the image of bathing suits on old women is passe!
One last tip for all of you who are still looking for the right beach mat, ladies. Towels are so last season. This spring we go for the nice African floor mats in blue or yellow from Roberta Roller. They are not just stylish, they are affordable at $45 and also match the new swimwear almost perfectly.
These spring lines showcase very wearable fashion for all body types. You can’t help but smile when you are in their bright-colored wear! By now all of you should know what that means: GO SHOPPING! This is our all hobby, anyway, isn’t it?
