Embellished details, or what I have nicknamed “3D Fashion” is a big trend for Spring. Appliques, beading, brooches and more are all being applied to garments, giving fashion a completely new and interesting dimension. From far away, it can almost look like a pattern but as you get closer, you see the details and the intricacy of the pieces and that’s what makes it stand out.
This skirt was most definitely a risk. I had a visceral reaction to seeing it online and it immediately caught my eye. At the time though, I wasn’t sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing. The more I looked at it though, the more I was intrigued. The flower pendants by themselves are just darling but there is an added element with the neon green leaf-like…plastic thingys (I couldn’t think of another way to say it). Of course, floral designs are definitely on trend but this is almost a rebellious floral, one that is tired of just being darling and pretty. This floral design wants a little edge and that is what sealed the deal for me. Because of that, I decided to let the skirt shine all on its own with muted accessories and just a hint of color in the shoe.
