Springtime!! And a young mans fancy turns to car shows,boat shows,comic con,and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.....Sigh..
Ladies,let's talk fashion. This season ushers in the oversize white shirt,the return of khakis,and the safari dress,(shirt dresses are big),along with 40's style short peplum jackets,skinny pants ,the return of the braid,and short hair,as well as lady-like shoes.
The seasons "it" color for clothes are beige and soft gray (the new black?) Dresses return in everything from soft pastel peach to eye popping pinks,but with a nod to glamour,as well as dress shorts and skirts in denim.
I'm spotting a retro '80's look in shoes this year with platform,peep-toed Mary Jane's,pointed toe flats,and sling-backs. even the 80's style clog is back,as well as the original suede mule. remember those hot little shoes with the studs and cut outs? Our "sexy date night,disco night" shoes are back.
Nightclubs are seeing the return of the little black dress with mile high stilettos (did it ever go out of style?) This time the dress is thigh high.and those killer heels are worn with bare legs.
Sleek,smooth hair is in,and here again is the year of the blond. The pixie cut is also back. Think Carrie Mulligan or Halle Barry,softly tousled hair not overly styled.
"It shades" for spring makeup...soft silvers,lemonade pinks,turquoise,and a retro eye popping candy pink and orange lipstick. One to try is Kat Von D's Painted Love Lipstick in "A-Go-Go". Line lips first in nude,apply,then top with a sheer gloss for a lasting look. (@Sephora $18.00)
Glittery eyeliner is back, again I prefer a softer look. Try Urban Decays Stardust eyeshadow as a liner applied on top of your usual shade. I used "Atmosphere" and got an all day perfect look. Beautiful turquoise without all the harshness of the entire color being on your lids.
Put some "spring" into your life
Until next time~
