Summer Velvet

August 30, 2016

Velvet is typically thought of as a winter fabric, and a dressy one at that. It’s soft, tactile and takes color beautifully, so it’s a shame to relegate it to the back of the closet until the holiday season. In the current fashion cycle, where high and low, cocktail and casual and tough and tender mix effortlessly together for an edgy look, why not wear velvet in the summer? The best part, is that you can layer it up and get extra mileage out of the pieces as you wear them into fall and winter.

Hailey Baldwin, model and sometimes Justin Bieber flame, rocks a green velvet slip dress on the streets of NYC.

This rich blue swimsuit takes the luxe look to the beach, although we question what it might feel like when wet.

Perhaps the designer was inspired by this shot from a 1974 edition of Vogue Paris.

This sexy camisole had us at first blush. Pop it under a jacket or chunky sweater coat for fall.

The richness of the fabric takes the edge off of an acidic color for this slip dress; trimmed in black and accessorized with sneakers, of course! Add a tee shirt to take into the fall.

Resorting To Ruffles

July 28, 2016

Designers have been showing their resort collections, offering a glimpse into what they might be offering for Spring 2017. We’ve mentioned before that the shirt is back in a major way, with crisp stripes and novel sleeve details adding interest to a classic category. For resort, we are seeing a return to tailored ruffles adorning band collared shirts.

Giambattista Valli adds rows of ruffles to his white shirt, topping a whimsical pineapple printed white denim skirt for his younger line, Giamba.
