One of my favorite trends this season and honestly of all runway trends is pajama & lingerie inspired style.
I’m definitely pining for a set like the one I drew above.
Is the Pajama Wrap Jumpsuit by Asos above not the cutest thing ever? 😩
We’ve seen this trend crop up before. Last spring it was a hit and this year more racier styles are taking over the trend. As noted by Vogue Italia,
“Bra, briefs, garter belts and (lots of) body suits. Style is in the details…”
We’ve definitely seen the bralette and bodysuit trend for a while. 90s grunge style was embedded with racy punky babydoll dresses a la Courtney Love.
I love the juxtaposition of a strong boot with a soft feminine lacy dress.
The modern take on lingerie inspired dressing is fashion-forward as well. Apparently, the trend will continue to appear and give its fans something sexy to slip into fall/winter 2017. Vogue Italia also writes,
“The hues for winter 2017 lingerie include timeless black but also lots of burgundy (replacing classic red for Christmas) and pink-nude, more understated but still flirty.”
Personally, I’m in love, and I can’t wait to wear this trend all summer. 💞
Even though the world as we know it has been turned a little on its side as we go forward into a new year and a controversial (to say the least) presidency, I’m trying to remain grateful and feel the love that remains. Today I felt loved after receiving so many birthday wishes. I truly appreciate each one and think it’s time to plant some seeds of hope.
I’ve been feeling a bit disenchanted the past few days. (Lack of sleep didn’t help). I started thinking of all the things I love today, including this blog, and my readers, and realized, when some things suck, you can always turn a new page. You can choose to look at things differently. That’s what I’m doing today, on my birthday.
I made this illustration to illustrate a dress a feminine, slightly kitschy retro dress I envisioned for Valentine’s Day.
I’m hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas/holiday with your loved ones and families, as I sit here trying to be thankful for everything I have, despite my not-so-picture-perfect Christmas. I’m still here though, and as a grown up, I should be able to handle grown up setbacks. We spent Christmas Eve & some of Christmas fixing my ever-broken down car, but at least I got to spend it with someone I care about. Not everyone gets to. It’s about the little things right?
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with embellished sweaters, like this one by Dorothy and Perkins (dorothyperkins.com);
There’s something about winter that makes it okay to add a little more girly extras. I love it, and I love mixing mrnswear classics and basics with feminine touches.
Today I continued to be inspired by vintage glamour. There’s something to be said for understated style and beauty. What you wear speaks volumes about you so, make it count. Hope my readers are enjoying my posts, collages, and fashion illustrations. Please like & follow my blog if so!
Believe it or not, summer is not my favorite season. My favorite is actually the one with fiery colored leaves, crisp mornings, and the one in which pumpkin spice lattes pervade everyone’s vocabulary; yes fall! So I am more than excited about what Fall 2016 has to offer.
In the mean time, I’m still into midi skirts, ankle strap sandals, and Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana-inspired daisy appliques. What’s your favorite season?
PS: I’m really feeling down about Orlando and the horrific crime that went down there. All I can say is more live, less hate. Please.
