Yo Deb readers, our blogger and creative director just returned from her semi-annual trip overseas to some of the best cities European fashion has to offer: Paris, Milan, and a quick jaunt through London. For the next couple weeks we'll be highlighting the top trends that Europeans exhibit as they embark the fall season. ENJOY!
BLACK IS NEVER BASIC:
Long a staple on the streets of Europe – especially in Italy – black takes on new meaning in warm weather, where the perfect silhouette or simple layers convey a person's sense of style. The little black dress, the perfect black pant, a great black jacket… all continue as staples in the Milanese wardrobe. Accents to black range from soothing neutrals to vibrant brights depending on the desired effect. Black dimensions are important with streamlined silhouettes to add some flare… shine with matte, crinkle with smooth, hand-knit with fine-gauge jersey. Watch for black textures in hosiery this fall! and don’t be afraid of dramatic to whimsical looks.
