Velvet Slip Dresses
Cruel Intentions anyone?
Velvet is big this season– and we mean really big. It’s been everywhere from the accessories at Dries Van Noten to the crushed velvet dresses at Topshop Unique.
The "Lemonade" Inspired Dress
We all remember when Lemonade was released as a video album. It was quite the hit (through a windshield….with a baseball bat.)
Anyway, what made the album so iconic was also the fashion it used (lots of Gucci and Roberto Cavalli).
To get the look, choose a yellow ruffled dress which references Lemonade while also being a safe trend investment for next year.
The Ballet Tulle Addition
Ballet is one of the leading trends this Fall/Winter, prompted by the ethereal looks sent on the runway at Valentino.
With layers of tulle and lace-up ballet flats (a la MiuMiu for those with a punk edge), dressing up as a ballerina makes it less of a costume and more of a style statement.
The Madonna Corset
Everyone remembers the iconic Jean Paul Gautier pointy corset Madonna was sporting onstage in 1990.
And with the return of the lingerie as outerwear trend, a corset on top of a silk slip dress or a tulle skirt and combat boots will give you the punk princess look that’s so relevant nowadays.
