Fashion designers Berivan Meyer and Marie Tournant behind Van Bery reveal their latest Autumn-Winter collection of women's retro inspired clothing sets. I personally love these feminine looks, which are vintage, pretty and timeless. We see girlish looks that are comfortable, easy to wear and have that special Parisian chic influence. For the next cold season Van Bery designers were inspired by the paintings of Tamara de Lempicka. Her works made the clothes look feminine, fresh and sophisticated, it feels like the paintings have moved into the real world, thanks to timeless and vibrant prints.
If you want your child to look awesome no matter if it's a casual or formal day, then why don't you take a look at these retro inspired girls dresses by Pears and Bears. Here you will find absolutely everything for your young beauty, starting from ruffle wrap dresses, easy shirtdresses to vintage inspired gowns. What I like about this brand is the signature styles that are seen in every creation. I love the versatility of these designs, that look playful and so qualitative. You can style your child in so many variations, like teaming corduroy dresses with red patent leather ballet shoes, or long sleeve dress in blue can look so good with leather belts and kitten heel shoes. All these dresses look retro and modern at the same time, thanks to those chic details. I personally like that classic party style dress which has belt loops.
This Autumn-Winter season is going to be all about retro style, as you all know, that the main thing of the styling is the total retro style look, which characterizes 1920's years. Well, for some of you the words 1920, feels like something weird and strange, but if you will take a look at the images of that era, then you will see that ladies appeared in beautiful evening dresses were worn with tiny bag, Mary Janes shoes, fur boa and satin ribbon with a feather pen, which accessorized lady's hairstyle.
We've already spoken about fashion trends that are going to be popular this Fall-Winter season, so let's continue our trip into second part of the trends that you need to know about.
The first fashion trend is called - beanies. This trend looks cute and wearable as well. As this item looks sporty, then you do not have to limit yourself with athletic style outfits. I love the way these beanies are worn in BCBG Max Azria fall-winter fashion runway show, where models appeared on the catwalk wearing classy and feminine dresses with matching heels, or classy pencil skirts, pant suits with those cool beanies. It means, you can wear those beanies with any outfit this fall season.
Today's topic will be Marilyn Monroe style. I’ve always been admired by her style and looks; and it's no wonder, that this beauty girl is still a style icon. I think nobody figured out why she is still teaching us style lessons. Here I've collected some rare photos of Marilyn, where she appears in timeless dresses. It's no secret, that nowadays you can find many shops (online shops) where you can buy Monroe's style garments, I've print screened one of the shops, where you can style and buy Marilyn's vintage style clothing. It's so interesting to see her images and to observe the outfits in which she appeared at different events.
This Summer Evening Finishing Touches. Lots of designers presented chic and elegant bags in their spring-summer collections: from the clutches in different fruit shapes and perfume bottles to leather rucksacks and hula hoop bags (here is the link to remind the shapes of the bags). Among creative shapes and variations there were retro style evening bags with clasps, long chains, luxurious embroidery, beads and fringe. Take a closer look at the Valentino clutch bag and Jimmy Choo bag, these accessories can be worn with silk evening dresses, beads, long gloves and hat-closh. Be retro this Spring season!
Retro Mix and Match. It's time for me to share with you some really bright ideas and fashion trend of style that can always be adopted by you, yes, we are going to talk about retro style. Please NOTE! this style has to match your personality, so if you are not feeling this way, please do not try this at home (joke). If you feel that this fashion style really suits you, why don't you try it. One thing is important, there is no rule or fashion points about what kind of outfit is on trend now, that's why it's up to you how and what will you style. What I love about retro style is that you can wear any dress that is vintage, yet you have to style fashionable accessories along retro inspired dresses, like the right pair of big sunglasses. If you are wearing polka dot skirts, pleated ones, or flared trousers then the right amount of bracelets and necklaces will suit just right!
