This spring’s fashion season will be going ahead with pastel colours taking centre stage. Even a trendy printed dress featuring disorganised maps of the United States is designed with a plentiful amount of this season’s yellow dotted over it.
Another winning colour will be white. Instead of the ‘little black dress’, a ‘little white dress’ should be packed when going away. Dresses in white may look stark and cold in the fashion store but when worn can look pure, clean and fresh, especially with large jewellery to soften the image. To really grab the attention however, a woman can do no better than to wear a complete outfit in white, for instance, a white crepe tunic and trousers or white trouser suit. In a smaller dose, any white top with black velvet tuxedo trousers will create a strong contrast.
However, snowy white ski jackets on a skiing holiday are not usually recommended. Victoria Beckham has been photographed on the slopes wearing a red jacket and red ski-pants. The general consensus for fashionable ski trousers is that they should be skinny. Jackets for skiing, by their very nature, will inevitably be baggy which will make skinny trousers look slimmer than ever. Fur trims around jacket hoods and cuffs are best avoided because as with an animal’s fur, they can trap icicles.
How difficult it is to make it as a top-notch model in today’s magazines and newspapers. These models are sometimes referred to as an ‘editorial’ model, in other words, one who meets the requirements of the editors or publishers of a particular genre of magazine. A girl may be beautiful looking but lack the ethereal figure or exotic ‘fantastic’ facial features so favoured by designers and editors.
On the other hand, well-known personalities such as Carol Vorderman, former ‘Countdown’ hostess, will always attract media attention for what they are wearing. Whilst attending events and functions they are sure to be photographed accordingly. At a National TV Awards recently, we were informed Carol Vorderman donned a figure-hugging dress and was thus photographed.
For such house-hold names as these who expect to be snapped by newspaper photographers whilst out and about, it must help to be mostly seen looking fashionable and up-market. Therefore to don a dress with a scalloped hem-line; shorts with scalloped edge bottoms or a top with a scalloped shape of collar will be a sensible choice because these are apparently the latest fashionable look.
Furthermore, any item of knitwear decorated with small curves along the edges of its neck, cuffs or hem-line are highly rated as the latest fashion necessity.
