What are the biggest trends right now!
This was the Number 1 trend during the Spring 2017 Runway shows and it has translated really well to retail.Most people look great in a medium scale floral on a dark background.Save the lighter ground florals for later in the season when you are more tanned.The good news is that we are seeing a lot of dresses out there with sleeves.A new trend we are seeing which is great for all you pant loving girls are floral jumpsuits that look like dresses,so now you can have your cake and eat it.The comfort of pants with the look of dress magic.Do not shy away from florals if you are a curvy girl.It is a myth that florals make you look bigger. Placed florals are extremely flattering and can be used to showcase your figure.Always go with a solid shoe when wearing a floral dress.
The great thing is even if you do not love florals you can get that feel and lift by pairing a simple solid dress with a floral bag,shoe and scarf.So even if florals are not your thing get in to spring’s main mood and rock it with your classic little black dress or you little navy dress.
Here are some black dress options to flatter your body shape.To make your look feel more spring like opt for the same dress in navy.Dress them up with floral accents.
Stripes are all the buzz this season and they are anything but boring.Most of us have been told to stay away from horizontal stripes as they make you look bigger,another myth that you need to bust.Horizontal stripes in the right scale and color can be very flattering.Vertical stripes and stripes on the bias are the way to go if you are stripe phobic.The key trend of the season is having stripes go in multiple directions on the same dress.
Again stripes not your thing go for a classic red dress and accessorize it with a striped shoe,belt or bag.
