Trends: Suited for a Canvas

Fashion is art that we live in. It’s the spirit of this notion that excites the soul when we wear bold (possibly Pollock inspired) prints. Watercolor prints add tranquil palettes to your wardrobe that appease the feminine sensibility.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti’s printed three-quarter-sleeve dress renders a muted eggplant and gray design.  The simulated brush strokes give a subtle dramatic aesthetic to this dress.  The scoop neckline and darted natural waist create an appealing silhouette that flatters the feminine form. A metallic clutch and emerald studded earrings would add the perfect amount of pizazz.

For a more daring approach to this trend consider this long sleeve mini dress by Vera Wang. This look is definitely a conversation starter.  The bold hues of orange, blue, and magenta blend perfectly to form stunning curves. Notice the banded waist that cinches the mid-section of this piece. Whether you’ve planned a fun weekend getaway or girls night out this dress is a stunner!

Vera Wang’s printed silk tee is a skillful piece that incorporates both artful design and everyday wear. The gray and white print makes this top easy to pair with most of your staple wardrobe pieces. We love the way it’s styled here with Vera Wang pants and cardigan for an easy feel.  Try dressing this up for work with a hunter green high-waist pencil skirt and black pumps.

Another fantastic frock by Giorgio Armani is this pleated double-layer dress.  Lady like and poised is the impression of this dress.  Printed chiffon with orange, gray, and white lies over a silk A-line skirt.  The natural pleated waist gives an organic essence. This is a great garment to carry you through several seasons, and a piece to keep in mind for a few fashion cycles down the road.

The ultimate transitional weather choice is a pair of intricately printed McQ Alexander McQueen leggings.  Dark jeweled greens will be a must have for this Fall.  Form fitting and cable printed, these leggings give you a second skin.  Pair these with a long tunic and boots, or with a chunky sweater dress. This look is not for the faint of fashion, confidence is the best possible accessory!

Alice  + Olivia hit the mark with these masterly printed skinny cargo pants.  The utilitarian nod adds an urban appeal to the updated sleek slim style. These printed pants give a modern flair that we love.  Wear these to an art gallery opening with a black or white top for an uber chic look.
