Lladies Love: Spring Fashion Y'all!
We're still about a month away from some serious thawing out, but that doesn't mean we can't be prepared for the coming warmth. Body con has been the name of the game for that past three seasons. Alexander Wang continues the trend with a sporty twist. His mix of leather and fleece, paired with gym socks and open-toed booties is truly comfy AND sexy. For Spring in general, waters still flow in that direction but instead of basic black, brights, florals, ikat prints and stripes are on the come-up.
Paul Smith churned out a slick collection to die for, that encompasses almost all of the aforementioned categories. Inspired by the Gentlemen of Bacongo, Lladies of all shapes, sizes, and colors can draw inspiration from the runway looks. And why let our torsos have all the fun? 80%20 and Osborn Design wants us to bring the party down to street level. Of course you can always get your fix with smaller accessories, like a fun mudcloth bag from OAK.
In addition to the solids and stripes of the Sonia Rykiel pour H&M collection, the retailer is rolling out the flirty and fun Garden Collection for the season. Wildfox Couture is definitely rolling with the homies, adding cute printed tanks, funky geometric-print leggings and shorts shorts to the equation. Lots of hot date nights ahead y'all!
