Get the style peppy and fairy to visit you this season with hot, Bohemian-style and feminine clothes.
Fashion seem to be on one long holiday as peppy styles take a mix of Bohemian-feminine-retro, seen in floral print gypsy skirts and shrunken cropped jackets, embellished tops, tunics, kitschy bags, strappy sandals and free-flowing silhouettes in everything from cheer chiffons to crisp linen. And although not strikingly different from last year’s fashion lookbook, the main stress will be on comfort, wearability and detail.
Peppy fashion designers describe the look as “very feminine and light with a reduced focus on embroidery ad more focus on layered chiffons in different shades of aqua, lime green, yellow and fiery orange.”
The ‘Kurti’ is Hot!
Look around chic boutiques and you will see almost instantly that the summer belongs to the ‘kurti’— for the spring running it finds itself at number one. The ‘kurti’ is an intergral part of any wardrobe and it’s also very wearable— it can be teamed with almost anything, especially belts, which are the key accessory of the peppy fashion season. Hand-worked, hand embroidered, appliqued or embellished with stones and sequins and woven leather, there’s a range you can choose from.
And the Gypsy Skirt…
The season’s other peppy show stopper is the gypsy skirt, done up in a delicate, minimal patterned prints or ‘50s style. Worn either just above the knee or below, the gypsy skirt is often teamed with soft, smooth asymmetrical tops, kaftan-style ‘kurtis’ and halter necks, as well as printed tank tops. Knee-length skirts can be worn with chiffon tops in pastel shades; tight drain pipe capris with free-flowing style tops.”
Linen, Light Denim, Silk
And so summer styles get airy and fluid and color gets a new zingy, peppy, fresh appeal. Experts add that fabrics, in keeping with this season’s look, get supple and delicate. Soft, sensuous light knits made to fit the contour of the body come in yummy colors like vanilla and strawberry milkshake. The colors for day are off-white and fruity and for night, deep dark colors set off by light dainty embroidery in a convent-like design.
White Is Hot
Ranging from off-white to beige, cool and comforting white suits all skin tones!
Squashy Bags & Wedge Shoes
The icing on the cake is the peppy accessories in stores this season. Shoes are wedges, Roman-style sandals, strappy and stripey stilettos, and pastel-shaded high heeled closed shoes. Chandelier earrings, like a straight stiletto, are to watch out for. Leather sack-sized bags that have a squashy appearance and appear oversized are in. matching narrow, fabric-covered skinny, tailored belts and buckles are also being worn, emphasizing the ‘50s feel in clothes, whilst deep, wide belts in soft leathers, sometimes jeweled, studded, woven or ethnic coined, are worn mostly at the hip level and make the body appear longer. And one’s style mantra we’d like to add— never leave home without a confident attitude and bright smile.
Go on Symphonites, get hot this season! 🙂
