ss2010 trend alert: georgette frills

The next series of pieces all share the same element of a two-layer diagonal ruffle across the front to give it the feminine touch and to spice up an otherwise ordinary piece. Sometimes, all you need, is just a little biased cut to give a refreshing take on those classic pieces which you always wear but wish it was little bit more outstanding.

First in line is the sleeveless dress, in 100% georgette fabrication and available in the standard black and white and the stunning deep blue which really brings out the best of your skin colour especially if worn for a day time cocktail event. Dress it down with a pair of leggings and a pair of sling back sandals for a more casual and relaxed look OR jazz it all up with stilettos, a clinch-waist belt and sexy accessories for a more dressy look.

The pattern continues onto a long sleeve blouse with the same fabrication and colour availability in deep blue, yellow and white. We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of jazzing up your work wardrobe with off-the-norm shirts like these ones to make your work day more stylish and modern. Rather than the usual button down shirt, blouses like these will take you from day to night in a jiffy and the ruffles will also peek out nicely from under your outer jacket. Being on top of the corporate ladder does not mean you need to sacrifice your fashion sense!

So the dress and the shirt has arrived in stores, but we do have one more piece up our sleeves also in this pattern, which is the long maxi dress in the signature deep blue colour. Stay tuned to this space because we will be announcing its arrival!

Just before we leave you, just a look at the trends around the world that you can conveniently pick up from our store.
