The Direction …
Now in retailers at all price points, you’ll see young, contemporary, yet timeless silhouettes that are alluringly seductive. Contrasting with tailored shapes that flatter the body and do not necessarily show all, can be even more sexy than in-your-face, body-hugging styles.
And the beat goes on with flash-dance touches: off the shoulders, saturated colors like deep purple, raspberry, metallic, ruffles.
What do fashion-speakers mean when they talk about “minimalist?” Nothing more than relaxed-simple-clean cuts and lines.
Focus on …
Bomber jackets for all occasions: short, long, sassy, punk-inspired, floral-printed, utilitarian, leather, plain or painted pleather, sequins, denim or polyester. Some of the best trends from Rodarte, Marc Jacobs and Coach can be purchased at Zara, Anthropologie and Target.
Asymmetric tops, skirts and dresses, including fishtail flamenco flouncing skirts and single-shoulder asymmetric, off-shoulder tops: Ones shown at Proenza Schouler, Saint Laurent, Haider Ackerman, Gucci, are well-priced at Zara, Anthropologie and J. Crew.
