Be Happy, Feel Beautiful
Paris Fashion Week was an assortment of our childhood fantasies. Lagerfeld for Chanel channelled The Little Mermaid for his underwater nymph-like models, Burton for McQueen created a Modern Greek Goddess, and Jacobs for Louis Vuitton reinvented the summering socialite. Superstars like Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen made runway appearances to universal acclaim. This kind of irreverent splendour and dream-like fantasy is exactly what makes Paris Fashion Week everything it has become: a daring and memorable whirlwind. Nothing is taken too seriously, and fashion becomes art. Here are a few ways to bring that kind of surreal romanticism into your daily life.
Dazzle in jewels: Wear pieces that are encrusted with rhinestones or crystal. A jewelled neckline or an eye-catching belt is a perfect way to make a statement. Dress up a simple outfit with diamonds, pearls, gemstones, and crystals (real or fake) around your neck, in your hair, and in your ears to add sophistication and drama to any piece.
Color your closet: Pick classic shapes and silhouettes in unexpected bright or pastel shades. Try a chic, tailored pantsuit in turquoise, sea green or a hot pink 1950s style dress. Make sure the fabric is high quality and drapes well to keep you looking glamorous.
Play up your inner princess: Kate Middleton is a major inspiration for this seasons runway looks. Get tailored, eye-catching, lady-like dresses, skirts, and jackets for spring and fall. The ripped jeans and super short cut-offs trend has ended and gone for a more classic look.
Material girl: Pick whimsical materials like chiffon, lace, and georgette to accentuate the softness of the Spring palette. Also, layered sheers and shining satin are wonderful options.
Use these tips to become the princess you always dreamed of being!
