Playing with skirts

March is here, which means New York Fashion Week is now only a figment of our imagination and hopefully spring is right around the corner. Although New York was showcasing its fall 2015 looks, there were lots of variations on skirts, with one common thread - shorter didn't seem to be better.

From Altuzarra to Victoria Beckham, there was a range of skirt options, which is especially exciting for someone like me that loves to wear skirts. As with all runway fashions, you don't have to like the whole ensemble. There is also a good chance we will see these fashions trickling down to specialty and department stores in one version or another, so there will be a lot of room to play around with what works best for you.

With that said, lets discuss some skirt options that will work for nearly anytime of the year:

Trumpet Skirt

This style of skirt can be amazing on, whether for work or play. The catch is to make sure you understand your body type, as depending where the flare and sometimes ruffles hit your legs, it can make short legs look shorter. Pair it with an Adea Long Sleeve Mock Neck Layering Top, as necks were mostly covered this past New York Fashion Week and can make transitioning seasons a little easier.

Pencil Skirt

From a button-down silk top to a sweater, there are so many possibilities available with this style of skirt. Since the skirt is often curve hugging, I often like to balance it out with a nicely tailored top or a top with some room to breathe- to help add some contrast to the form fitting skirt.

A-Line Skirt

This skirt option is one of my favorite styles because it can be fun and youthful while also flattering for nearly any body type. Much like the other skirts, I advise to look at balance. If your A-line style is one that hugs the hips slightly, then you can have a looser top. Yet, if your A-line goes straight out from your hips, I advise wearing a more form fitting top, such as an Adea Layering Top to balance the outfit.

As always, have fun with fashion and looking forward to hearing how you have fun with skirts in the comment section below.

Likes or No Likes - the Instagram Question

August 23, 2019

When Instagram announced they would be running a test where they would "hide the total number of likes and video views for some people" in some countries, the feedback was mixed. I spoke with some of my friends, from around the globe, who lauded the decision. Their reasoning was varied but with many pointing to how many teens and even young children are feeling the pressure to post and will only feel validated when they get so many likes.

The Collision of Fashion and Politics?

August 18, 2019

No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
