Stars were seen as last year’s motif. This year’s motif is the butterfly- sure to be a trend fluttering around on clothing especially this spring and summer. Several designers including Collette Dinnigan, Diane von Furstenberg, Tibi, and Badgley Mischka showcased butterfly motifs in their 2009 collections. Butterflies play symbols of beauty, hope, and femininity creating a delicate elegance for garments.

 

Shorts Over Tights January 26, 2009

Here’s a look on our style watch that may take some getting use to – shorts over tights. This odd pairing has made appearances since 2007, but it seems just recently more ladies are ballsy enough to wear it.

Style tips: Wear them short but not too short. In addition to jean shorts, also try out other fabrics like tweed. For footwear, consider closed toe flats and pumps and the ever-popular ankle boots. Coordinate with tights of various colors and patterns.

Given the right ensemble, I think I’d dare to rock this look. Your thoughts – too weird and funky or would you/do you wear tights under your shorts?

I was doing my everyday fashion internet surfing and guess what I came across that’s in style. This was soon after I had already received Mike and Jasmine’s invitation. Elements of their wedding theme are apparently in fashion.

The big chunky stars are a bit overboard for me, but I’m really liking the subtlety of tiny baby star motifs – too cute!!

Seeing stars in style prompted me to start brainstorming decor ideas to carry out this adorable motif to weddings. More of that to come in Part III.
