The 2012 Spring/Summer collection of Louis Vuitton could easily be credited as the inspiration for this summer’s obsession with lace and pastels. I couldn’t resist doing a break down on how to get the look with so many clothes in stores that are clearly drawing on inspiration from the show.
How to get the look:
-Use white as your base colour and add small details in pastels. Yellow, mint, seafoam, pink and salmon were used on the runway. Alternatively you can go all out with one of these colours.
-Incorporate eyelet fabrics and feather details into your outfit.
-Add dainty hairpieces in silver and cap-toed heels as accessories.
-Finish the look with big bold lashes and a soft pink lip gloss.
Taylor Swift rocked this red lace dress from French Connection last week. The dress was celebrated mostly because of its affordability and accessibility to the masses. Whilst South Africans can get the brand at Stuttafords, I doubt that it would be as affordable as we wish. So luckily I found a very affordable alternative in summer friendly coral-red. This Mr Price variant also features the cute 3/4 sleeve and a-line skirt. Exchange the bright red lip for a summer-appropriate coral-red, add dainty jewellery and a pair of nude heels and you’re ready!
Sequins are not only warming up the runways; chic girls off the runway are showing us that what was once reserved for after dark can be worn during day hours as well.
A casual top, such as a denim shirt or an oversized t-shirt, paired with bright accessories makes this look wearable whether AM or PM. Just add a pair of sunnies and keep the rest minimal and you’re ready to go!
