Ahhh! The fun, flirty dresses we will be viewing this spring are sure stepping up their game. You don’t just see any plain ole one-toned dress anymore. It’s all about the high to low, prints, maxi and, of course, the sharp geometric shapes. All these fab dress types are this spring’s hottest staples. If you are the type of girl who is indecisive when piecing outfits together, then a chic dress is just right for you. Instead of trying to find pieces that will match, a dress is one and done!
On this showery Oxford day, this sweet Fashionista adorned herself in a simple, yet very busy halter dress. The beige thigh-length halter dress is certainly an eye catcher with its hodgepodge of triangles in numerous shades of blue. The strident triangles are organized horizontally with a zig-zag pattern, which gave the trendy dress some craze. This loose fitted geometric dress is from a quaint boutique only in Arizona and Georgia called Lizard Thicket. Lizard Thicket is a chic boutique that offers sassy tanks, bottoms and even stylish jewelry.
The Fashionista chose to wear suede wedges with a maple oak platform and gold studded accents. Her comfy footwear comes from the cute and cheap: Payless. The suede shoe compliments her busy beige dress flawlessly. The Fashionista also could have dressed this look down with a pair of black riding boots or, for a pop of color, some indigo pointed toe flats. Her look is immaculate for a classy date night with the boyfriend or formal sorority chapter meeting. She could also warm up the outfit with a simple cream sweater and a thin sapphire belt over the sweater for some layering.
Geometric print patterns are not only taking the flirty boutiques by storm but also the runway. From harpersbazaar.com, in The Spring 2013 Runway Report, they feature many models in designer apparel with geometric and graphic accents. Proenza Schouler is featuring a pop art look with bold squares on their black and white trench coat this spring. Perfect for those April showers!
In order to find the perfect geometrics for your closet, find the shapes that compliment you! If you have more of a pear shape, then look for a square print to even out your curves. If you are more of a rectangle shape, then be on the lookout for a dress like this Fashionista is sporting, with some fun triangles or diamonds. If you have an hourglass figure, then try an assortment of geometric patterns to keep eyes on the whole look and not just your broad shoulders or hips!
Now, go out and discover some sassy shapes on dresses or tops that will flatter your body type and complement your wardrobe this spring!
