Summer is upon us! With summer, comes a whole new look, attitude and of course…high fashion! And don’t we all love a sneak peak at what’s available to us…whether or not we actually need that ballgown? Of course we do!
For me, this year on the runways has really been all about the dress. After the cold season is behind us and I’ve had to wear pants for the better part of 6 months, want to show some leg! Plus, in my opinion, you have to have a certain kind of tall lanky figure to really work pants (in the runway sense). Dresses, well, they’re pretty and add a bit of elegance and put-togetherness to any look for day or night.
Here are a few of my fashion cravings from the 2016 runways:
This first look is from Filippa K’s winter 2016 collection. If you live in a climate where you must dress for both summer and fall in the same day, this look is perfect! I’m all about leather skirts (and yes, mine is hanging in my closet). They are perfect with a black or brown flimsy silky top for day with either a navy over sweater or black boyfriend cashmere in the evenings.
This Dior Fall 2016 number is to-die-for! When I hit my goal weight, this is on my reward list 😉
This Monique L’huillier dress is THE ONE! If you’re anything like me, and prefer a few items that you look stunning in, as apposed to a closet full of ‘meh’, then this is a must-have addition to your wardrobe. I could easily live in this dress all summer long!
Reem Acra nailed evening elegance with this look for the Spring/Summer 2016 catwalk. This is a dress that is so simple in its elegance, yet defined in the detail and wearable to just about EVERYTHING.
This Houghton Bride S/S 2016 dress is adorable! Perfectly suited for a 20 something with a great pair of legs, this light and airy dress is summer ready for some great outdoor functions!
And now for two lust-worthy evening looks which are niche perfect for the glam goddess in you:
Alberta Ferretti, how have we ever lived without you! This dress is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!
Marchesa gets it so right, every single time! The entire Marchesa collection is AWESOME this year, you should check it out. I singled out this dress though because of its versatility. Airy and a little bit boho mixed with classic sophistication make this ensemble a winning combination.
….And what runway show is complete without a couture bridal display? None. Here we go, my top bridal picks for 2016:
Mermaids have been living at the top of the bridal fashion charts for awhile now, and we can see why- here. This Pnina Tornai mermaid low-cut bridal dress for her 2016 runway show is a show-stopper. With loads of luxury fabric, sparkles, classic neckline cut and a bit of touching, this gown would be the ‘it gown’ for any fashion forward bride.
THIS… I have to say that this is the one for me. (Too bad, there’s not a real wedding in the foreseeable future) This gorgeous Pronovias 2016 gown is an absolute stunner in its classic simplicity. No sparkle, no ruffle, just pure luxury in a classic, 50’s hollywood, European cut. The lines flow perfectly and its reminiscent of classic Chanel. This wedding gown makes me want to purr…
Love to hear some of your faves from this year!
