The sapphire blue hue that adorns this Fashionista’s dress is the exact shade of blue that is all the craze this season. Regardless of trend, this blue is a focal point this season, from skirts and shirts to accents and accessories; debuting in collections across the globe. Deep cerulean blue is Spring 2012 fashion. In addition, the detail of the dress focuses on a lace pattern that is a growing rage, especially as we approach summer. Flirty summer looks consist of classy feminine chic inspiration, playing up the pure feminine and innocent vibe for females this year.
I just caught this Fashionista after she gave a presentation for her business class. Her outfit is classy and conservative while maintaining a fun flare to emulate her inviting attitude. Her lacy dress speaks volumes of flirty chic vibes, but she tones down the femininity and adds a little structure to her look with a sleek cardigan to add a little bit of edge and serious tone to her attire. Structure plus flow is the perfection of professionalism! Not to mention, her color palette is on-point — the muted neutral cardigan truly tones down the engaging dress, adding the element of simplification and sophistication to her outfit.
It goes without saying that the accessories of this outfit focus on complementing the Fashionista’s focal garment — her dress — by adding detail rather than withdrawing from the outfit. Since the hue of the dress is the central point of this ensemble, this Fashionista enhances her outfit by sticking to a necklace, ring and bangles that appreciate the dress, rather than juxtaposing and adding a contrasting focus. The simplistic accessories coincide perfectly!
Take it one step further: This Fashionista could accessorize even more by turning this presentation-appropriate outfit into a day casual look by adding an eye-candy clutch purse or a thin belt, preferably in red for a color block pop of color! Accessories always optimize a look!
As always, take advice from this Fashionista’s personal success: look great, work great! Dare to wear the bold blue this season, it will never fail to look brilliant!
