It`s a wrap
Winter`s pashmina craze gives way to a new season: A big and bright light-as-air gauze wrap can be the singular sensation that ushers today`s trends into your wardrobe. Adorned with tiny mirrored disks surrounded by embroidery, it`s got style to spare.
Jeans are jazzing up their act in Pucci-inspired designs and exotic animal prints. Keep the look calm and cool by pairing them with simply styled solid-colour tops.
If tailored-to-the-max jacket-and-skirt suits haven`t been pushed to the back of your closet yet, now`s the time: Work-worthy looks sport comfort, colour and pretty little flourishes like a ruffled hem. Look for styles in fluid matte jersey fabrics and mix shades like lemon, fuchsia and coral.
A lacy fringe of sparkly bugle beads trimming hems gives capri pants a funky update for spring. Add an embroidered white camp shirt for a casual look that`s both bohemian and up-to-the-minute trendy.
Tiny embroidered flowers and black blanket-stitch edging pretty up a plain peasant tee, making it a match for attention-getting zebra-print jeans.
The Bead Goes On
From the skinny straps of a tank top to everything but the soles on sandals, beads are the embellishment of the moment, top to toe. Fabric linings and even technolook electrical tape give classic dark-blue denims hip new style off the cuff.
