2016 RUNWAY THE “Pearl” way: classics make a comeback!
Posted: Aug 01 2016
Whether she’s headed for bottomless mimosas or picking up after her two-year old’s tea party, a PEARLGirl never forgets the classics. This season’s runways answered the age-old question: “Does fashion ever really go out of style?” While some trends fade in the dust, classic prints, silhouettes and fabrics will always make a statement.
Dressed in Denim
Who says denim has to be casual?! Far from the days of Daisy Duke and Ellie Mae Clampett, Lady Denim made a splash on the runways this season by showing her classier, more sophisticated side. Dressed up or dressed down, denim is a fabric for all seasons and should be a staple in your wardrobe year-round. Feel free to keep denim fun and flirty for the spring and summer, or layer it for fall and winter. A sassy long crop with a sweet tulle tutu is an easy “dress it up, dress it down” look.
Stripes and Shirt Dresses: Not-So-Risky Business
Two trends that we see recurring often are stripes and shirt dresses. Stripes, though some may stick to more simple choices, can make some of the boldest statements. Also for centuries, a man’s button down has not changed. However, we have seen a push for men’s oxfords in a woman’s wardrobe. We could not AGREE more! Combining these two trends is the best way for you to stay sophisticated, yet sexy! You’ll be classic and chic, a true lady in this vertical stripe dress. Think: Tom Cruise in Risky Business. That iconic slide across the living floor is still one of the sexiest moments in film. Why not make an alluding statement of your own?
Take one look at our boutique and you will quickly see that we are completely obsessed with this trend. At Pippa & Pearl, as far as we’re concerned, florals will never go out of style! There’s such variety in this classic print that a PEARLGirl could NEVER throw this trend out!
Naturally, our selection of bold floral prints and patterns are always in bloom! For a derby or high tea, we might choose to don one of our big, BOLD, all over florals and top it off with an equally bold and intricate fascinator. Just the same some of our darker floral prints can be worn for parties and special events all the way through fall and winter.
Florals do not have to be put away after spring time! During the work week we might choose a floral top with a cigarette pant and ballet flat or studded sandal. Either way, Pippa & Pearl’s floral obsession will keep blossoming every season.
Never be afraid to invest in new classics for your wardrobe, and add your own personal touch to feel like you just stepped off the runway. Denim, stripes, shirt dresses and florals can be statement pieces on their own, or be mixed and matched to find a one-of-a-kind look that suits your mood. And always remember, confidence and kindness are a woman’s most infectious accessories.
