Most of my clothing is fairly basic, and I tend to gravitate towards neutral colors and simple patterns. The front of this sweater looked like all the other ones on the rack.
But when I turned it around, there was a surprise.
This is a perfect top to transition to fall. It's a lightweight sweater with a sheer voile panel on the back, which keeps me from getting too warm when the sun makes its afternoon appearance.
The front was very plain, so I spiced it up with this statement necklace.
I spent a little time this weekend watching live streamed runway shows from New York Fashion Week. As usual, the clothing was artistic and beautifully made. Badgley Mischka and Jenny Packham's dresses were stunning. Two trends for Spring 2015 really stood out:
- While pastels will continue to be popular, many designers showed white on white outfits. LOTS of white - pants, shirt, jacket, shoes.
- We're heading back to the 1970's! Hemlines are moving down, and midi skirts and bermuda shorts will be popular. Pants will have a slight flare to them, and....the return of the culotte!
It will be interesting to see how these designs translate to ready to wear. I don't have a lot of fond memories of culottes from my childhood, so I doubt I'll be jumping on that trend...
