Spring/Summer 2014- I'ts finally Arrived in the Southern Hemisphere!!!!!

Hello loves,

Spring is around the corner and a girl has got to prepare their wardrobe. Move over furry, heavy coats and knit scarves- it's time to blossom in flirty, flowy, lightweight materials again.
I personally can't wait to feel the beach sand in between my toes- yes I'm a beach bum.
PS fellow beach bums- do not forget the sunscreen

Without further ado let's get on with those tips:

So we all know this year's colour is Pantone's Radiant Orchid : be sure to get some items that will showcase this beautiful, rich berry tone. So here's an inspiration board for y'all lovely ladies: what I love about the colour is the makeup looks good on both light and dark skin tones.

Spotted on Fashion week is the classic monochrome trend, which is clearly here to stay and influenced a couple of designs on names like bcbg max, Derek Lam and Diane von Furstenberg (who also showcased another Spring trend : the crop top).

 White on white is also big this Spring as was seen on the runway designs by
Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein ( who also potted a big trend for this season- the fringe)

Another trend that's sweeping the street is the athletic trend- sporty chic on the streets! Personally I would go for the minimalist look on this one, but hey if you are bold deck the pieces out and express yourself. Good news, your gym clothes have a dual purpose now lol

Sheer material is also in for the spring and one can incorporate it in almost every item of clothing as seen on the runway of Theysken's Theory

So here is a bit of street inspiration pieces for us "normal people" who our runway is the local pavement  lol:
