In my last blog I wrote about Fall fashion trends, and now in light of Fashion Week, I’m jumping right into Spring trends. Although spring may be the last thing on your mind, it’s always nice to get a sneak peak of what’s coming next season.
Since we love vintage inspired clothing at Chloe Chic, I chose runway pieces that fit this look. In scanning the images from Fashion Week, I found even the most avant garde designers sporting vintage.
Midriff Trend- You’ll be sporting a lot of belly this spring. I love the ruffled and ruched Katie Gallagher skirt paired with transparent tights. In the second photo, the baby pink pin-stripes and pink sash fit perfectly with Chloe Chic’s romantic image. The model’s red lipstick, retro up-do, and Converse sneakers add the perfect vintage touch.
Stripes- Stripes hit the runway in all shapes and sizes. The chiffon fabric and button detail on the Tia Cibani dress remind me of Chloe Chic pieces, particularly the Seaside Top . The second outfit is oh-so-vintage. Her short bob, ankle-strap pumps, and empire waist-line make the model look like she walked straight out of Boardwalk Empire.
Lace- You can never go wrong pairing a lady with lace. It’s one of the most feminine fabrics I can think of, and I love that it makes an appearance this Spring. The Tadashi Shoji dress keeps it classy with a high neckline, which allows for the short length and peek of midriff. I couldn’t help but think of Chloe Chic’s “Ruffle Me Up” Dress when I saw this.
