The silhouette

When going through both the Resort and Spring/Summer collections we clearly see that many of the designers have been influenced by the 70's era. One of the biggest trends? Undoubtedly the wide silhouette.

Palazzo, cropped, culottes (Chloé, MarniDries Van Noten and Rachel Zoe all showed some amazing styles). Beloved child has many names. As long as they're wide you can just pick any of these fits (or go for all of them and vary!) and you'll be ready to meet the summery season in style.

From slouchy to sophisticated, it's all in the fabric. Silk, satin and crepe is the way to the upcoming season's loose luxury.

It all depends on what style you're going for. For a relaxed look, just wear it with a simple basic tank top. Fond of contrasts? Go for a printed washed out sporty t-shirt tucked down in waist. Want a more sleek Studio 54-feeling? Think luxe shiny fabrics (satin, lamé etc), fur and outrageous makeup… This versatile piece really has no limits and is easy to personalize.

On your next flight (when comfy is key) as well as to a fancy dinner party when you feel for making a more sophisticated (and perhaps unexpected?) impression.
