Fashion blogger Claire Wigglesworth from StyleConviction.com gives her picks on what to shop for right now.
It seems the retro picnic-blanket pattern has gone less chintz and more “sexy cool girl.” Wear as an A-line summer skirt with loafers to modernize, or keep it girlie with a thigh-high slit dress. If you’re not feeling the country love, ease in with a simple shirt—there’s no need to turn into Dorothy for this trend!
A pop of color is welcome after endless neutral shades of seasons past. Primary-color looks were memorable parts of every runway presentation. Don’t be afraid to stand out—we won’t judge you.
I’m not sure if I’m lusting after suede because I’m “oh-so on-trend” or because I’ve been influenced by its liberal use on the spring/summer runways as this season’s “fabric of the moment” (along with it came 1970s-inspired looks). I want everything in suede right now: boots, jackets, bags, pants or dresses. Luckily I’ve been heard.
