Spring Synopsis {A LIst of Trends}



DEEP SEA creatures and textures add dimension to fabrics. Shells, iridescent details, and coral textures  are a rich luxurious way to dress.  The world is your oyster {as said daily by me}.

PEPLUMS wiggled their way back on the trend list.  {I suggest wiggling when Pepluming (the action of wearing Peplums)} Peplum belts, peplum jackets, peplum dresses, peplum skirts.  See blog about how to wear - http://thestyleden.blogspot.com/2011/10/peplum-problems.html

BIRDS fly onto fabrics while feathers texturize textiles.  Not to be confused with insects, birds remain a feminine detail in Spring.  Experiment with Swans, Hummingbirds, wing prints and even bird brooches.

PEEK A BOO cut outs on tops and dresses expose flesh in a funky not overtly sexy way.  Back and side  cut outs can be a more functional way to experiment with this trend for those not as daring.  Baring midriff is never out of style for the warmer months is it?

DROP WAISTS much like those in the roaring 20's were shown with wide belts made of fabric and leather.  Great for boyish type figures, this waist line hits you right at your widest part of your hips.

PLEATS in delicate fabrics such as chiffons and sheer silks are so difficult to do.   Never underestimate a pleat and its ability to disguise lumps if done properly.

PASTELS such as milky creams and pinks with sherbert color pallets look good enough to eat.....but they're not.  This trend makes me the hungriest.
