In fine fabrics, soft palettes, delicate details and pretty pastels – romance is born. Taking inspiration from fairytales and old films, fashion has moved into the world of fantasy and flight.
Some of the great love affairs in film have been made iconic through fashion: Marilyn Monroe’s white halter dress in The Seven Year Itch, Audrey Hepburn’s black Givenchy in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and, who could forget, Jessica Rabbit’s red strapless number in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? When it comes to films of the heart, fashion plays a signature role.
Reviving the romance of fashion is not a casual affair. Designers are turning to vintage films to remind themselves about what it means to be feminine. And, while we cannot always embrace lace and gloves and old school glamour; luxurious fabrics, soft colours and a fabulous pair of boots allow us to modernize classically ladylike attire.
This Fashionista looks de rigueur in pretty pink and matching purple. Her skirt, crafted from the finest, softest fabric, flows with the wind, flutters with the breeze and flatters the figure.
Keeping the slate clean, and choosing to stick to one colour palette, this Fashionista has redefined “all that glitters” and keeps it simple and chic.
Hint: With bare legs and ankle boots, this Fashionista keeps her look modern. Tan suede ankle boots are a sound investment simply because of their versatility and wearability. Primp them up in pretty hues, or wear them grungy with oversized pieces and black, black, black.
