Street Style: Tropical Excursion

The entire room disappeared from my view when my fashion radar spotted an outfit that conjured up images of tropical beaches, palm trees, and tiki huts.

Street Style: Pleated Skirt

Living close to the beach, I don’t see fashion around town as much as I see everyday tank tops, tees, shorts, and flip flops.  Occasionally, though, a bright spot appears in the form of someone wearing the latest trends or expressing a creative style that I could envision on the runway or in a fashion magazine.

Spring 2012 Trends: Asymmetry, Sheers, and Draping

Gray pullover

Asymmetrical cuts, and sheer and draped fabrics, flooded the Helmut Lang Spring/Summer 2012 runway.  The mix of urban, sporty, and feminine styles brought a youthful, yet sophisticated, appeal to the collection.  For the color scheme, husband-and-wife team Michael and Nicole Colovos focused on black and white with a dramatic burst of bright yellow.
