Clouds of pastels glided down the runway at the Ellie Saab Spring 2012 Haute Couture Fashion Show. Outdoing herself again, the talented and creative Ellie Saab has created an extensive line of glamorous gowns to detailed dresses. With her huge ranges of colors, there is truly something for everyone in this line! Not to mention the many gowns that were extravagant enough for Red Carpet functions. With lovely colors of mint green, light blue, pink, yellow, and coral, there was something unique about every piece and so much intricate detailing. If I could dream up any job, it would be to wear Ellie Saab’s Spring line every day!
No this is not a green and yellow basket! It’s a bunch of fringe! The newest trend on the Fall Fashion swing is Fringe and lots of it! Fringe accents are so stylish if you are going for an urban boho sense of style or if you have a rugged side waiting to burst out! Adding a little fringe to your wardrobe will give you that daring edge above the rest!
If you are looking to start out slow with just little accents of fringe, try getting a fringe bad, fringe boots or heals. Adding a little flair of fringe will give you a southwestern chicness that will have your friends gabbing “Where did you get that?”
Once you get used to having fringe in your wardrobe, take the next step and be daring enough to wear fringe clothing! Find a great jacket with fringe or a cutoff shirt that has strips of fringe! You can even find fringe shorts from Billabong that are oh-so-cute!
Have no money to buy some fabulous fringe? No problem! Grab an old shirt that you never wear and some scissors, cut down the top of the shirt with the torso version all that’s left. Cut little slits about half way up on the section of the shirt. Gently pull them down and stretch out the fabric and you are ready to wear! The perfect fringe scarf for nothing at all!
All wrapped up in your pile of scarves but have no idea how to wear them! Simple, there are so many different ways to wear a scarf and you can base that on your mood for the day!
The most common way to wear a scarf is to wrap it around your neck with both sides hanging down the front or drape one side down your back with the other side in the front. These are easy ways to wear scarves if you are in a hurry in the morning.
Another fun way to wear a scarf is to wrap it around your neck with a corner hanging down the front. Tuck the ends in for a trendy look!
One of the most popular scarf trends is the infinity scarf that is a circular scarf that is attached to itself! You can simply wear it long or wrap it around your neck two or three times!
Scarves are the perfect accessory for Fall and Winter! Make any regular pair of jeans and a jacket look trendy with any of these ways to tie a scarf! Colors and prints are always fun to look for in a scarf to spice up any outfit! The bolder the better!
