February fashion talk is generally devoted to Valentine’s Day lovelies. Which I’m feeling is just so last year… and the year before… and the year before that… and so on all the way back to the beginning of time. Instead, I’m going for three up-and-coming trends that I am loving right now. Any one of them would make for a perfect valentine.
I am completely smitten with fluorescents. They’re a fantastic jolt of electric color that wakes up neutrals and singes with style. Just like electricity, too much will kill you, or your outfit, metaphorically speaking. Skinny belts or a few bangles are just the right voltage.
Charm bracelets are just so undeniably charming! All the time! You can jingle jangle like Auntie Mame or opt for something more subdued, but you’ll be “charmed, I’m sure” the instant it’s on your wrist. Charm bracelets are meant to be admired, so wear it with a slim sleeve or turn back your cuff.
Be prepared to have your feathers ruffled. From formal tux inspired tops to abstract sculptural concoctions, everything’s coming up ruffles! I’m lusting after deep set, flamenco flounces that thrill and entice with every step.
