Style Notes: World Affairs

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Aim for exotic prints and colors this summer that'll take you on an expedition to foreign lands like Africa, India or Bali.  The bolder the print the better.

Dolce & Gabana; tiered printed silk maxi dress. This three layered tiered silk dress was one of the stars in the Dolce & Gabana Spring/Summer 2012 collection that was dedicated to the history of D&G. Wear this dress with stacked metal colored bangles and big chandelier or hoop earrings to complete a boho look.

 Vineet Bahl; Sequined knot-effect chiffon dress *Shown with Lanvin shoes and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch. Wear this handmade sequined dress to a cocktail party or a stylish event for the fourth of July or a Christmas dinner would be an exceptional  reason to wear this  cute number. It has a blue ombre center with a knot that is perfectly placed in the center to insure that it will drape and fall in all the right places.

Floor sweeping feather-like maxi dresses are perfect for the summer's hot sticky and humid weather. By Malene Birger's  lighter than air multicolored printed silk-chiffon dress in a pastel Cuba Green can be matched with complimentary accessories. Accessories with tones similar to the ones in the dress will definitely make this dress stand out. 

Sandro; Pantagonie printed crepe playsuit. *Shown with Isabel Marant shoes and a Vanessa Bruno bag. Wear this contemporary Parisian Chic playsuit with cute flat sandals or a pair of neutral or earth colored wedges. Copper or brass colored jewelry will complete this look. 

Etro; ruched printed crepe dress. *Shown with Jimmy Choo shoes and a Tory Burch clutch. Etro's kaleidoscopic paisley print  dress is perfect for dinner parties or stylish social events. Etro's ruches printed crepe dress is brilliantly cultivated with ruches sides to accentuate a woman-like shilouette. Etro's dress shows off the Italians design aesthetic at its finest. Keep this look simple with minimum accessories.

It will definitely add "uptown chic" to your wardrobe. A solid colored bottom will look great with this slip on top. If you're feeling bold then try some pattern clashing just as in the photograph above. Make sure you wear your hair in an up-style such as a relaxed bun to show off the exotic print of the silk-chiffon top.
