I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a fashionista but I do like to be aware of the latest trends. Of course, everyone knows the famous name “Kardashian” and that it is inextricably linked with popular fashion. However, I don’t keep my eyes on Kim. Rather, I watch what her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie are up to. And recently they did a reveal of some of their favorite statement pieces from their 2016 Spring Collection. I have to admit I was impressed.
My favorite was a simple mini dress that was blush pink. It featured short, blunt sleeves, rectangular pockets set at the hips, a scoop neckline with a deep-set front lace-up. I simply love it. I could pair it with a pair of leggings and some cute boots. If I’ve got a decent tan, I could just throw on some sandals and the outfit would be complete. With its simple, straight lines, I might even be able to get away with pairing it with a set of low, chunky heels for a night out. The simplicity of its lines is what makes it so versatile.
Another dress featured had a criss-cross aspect to the bust that created a peek-a-boo keyhole at the back and front. However, despite the edgy sexiness of that little peek-a-boo, the full, flowing a-line skirt softened and feminized the dress. A gal can go sexy without being trashy. The publicity pic shows it in white, which is a color I don’t do well. I’m hoping I can find it in a pastel or maybe even a brilliant blue or green.
Another dress that was modest, feminine and oh so lovely was a little cocktail dress accented with lace and piping. The sleeveless, scoop neck dress has a back button closure at the neckline. This creates a short, narrow keyhole effect on the backside. The neckline, sleeveless edges, and skirt border are piped with a contrasting color. Just above the banded waistline is sheer lace with another narrow strip of it just above the cleavage line. Again, a beautiful blend of sexy and feminine. [Read more…]
