Nautical Stripes

The nautical trend is back for another summer (YEAH).  Fortunately you don’t have to be near water for this look to be effective.   This  look it pretty simple and basic and anyone can wear it.  This look revolves around stripes, and crisp light colors with navy and yellow twisted into the mix. Horizontal stripes isn’t flattering for everyone.

For those who find it hard to wear horizontal stripes you can but you need to make sure they are chevron  print. The apex of the chevron should fall at the waist creating a cinching affect, thus making the waist appear smaller.

In addition to the chevron print light weight cardigans with horizontal stripes can be worn. Worn open the stripes don’t make the body appear wider. White dresses or pants give off the chill “I m ready for the yacht” look.

Spice up the white with a touch of  yellow or navy blue. Boat shoes  are an alternative and an easier way to ease yourself into the trend if you aren’t comfortable with stripes.  Jewelry is always a simpler alternative anchors can be found in necklaces, earrings even belts This is one trend you will see everywhere this summer. So get on board! Bon Voyage!

NY Fashion Week Keeps it Posh

By Manda J

New York Fashion week has begun! After looking at various designer’s lines via New York Magazine’s Fashion Show (click here to visit).  I certain lines have me lusting for certain garments. One such line is Victoria Beckham’s line. Victoria Beckham AKA Posh Spice is my favorite Spice Girl.  This is VB’s fourth season designing and she seems to have found her niche. 

Her RTW Fall 2010 dresses are very stylish chic with a twist of sass thrown in. We are so used to see the classic Grecian form of draping, but this style of draping border line absurd amount of excess fabric…but it works. An extra yard here and you have a new look. She chose to use colors ranging from black to sapphire. These don’t seem like typical fall colors, but I am happy that someone has broken up the monotony of the usual burnt orange and red.  Here are some of my favorite looks. I can see Michelle O is quite a few of these dresses with her standard cinched waist.
