Spring Summer 2014-A A +A
Tuesday, May 13, 2014
THIS Spring/Summer, Dorothy Perkins embraces two key looks: pretty and feminine pastels and geometric graphics with a sports luxe feel.
The pastel trend signals the return of femininity, combining sheer and lace textures with delicate organza details. Separates are key for Spring Summer, whether it’s a midi skirt teamed with a dip- hem top or wide leg palazzo pants with a translucent blouse.
Jacquard and lace pencil skirts are worn with a slub fit logo tee and a biker jacket. The midi length is a must have - whether in a sheer panel detail dress or printed skirts.
Coordinated sets in fresh whites and soft tones are worn together to create a ladylike chic silhouette, worn with metallic flat sandals or strappy heels with a fold over soft clutch to finish the look.
For casual wear, washed out denim is mixed with the soft pastel palette. Simple tees are given an instant update with pretty embroidery and jacquard detailing.
The summer sweat makes a playful return with fun logos and lace wording. Long-line blazers and fitted zip detail jackets are the perfect outerwear options and footwear classics like the flat brogue and simple court get a feminine make- over in sugar pastel colors and metallics.
The graphic trend combines minimalism and geometric prints for a relaxed easy to wear collection. Laser cut, asymmetric finishing and color blocking are mixed with sheer paneling and midi length styles.
The monochrome color palette receives an injection of color and the inclusion of delicate floral prints. The tailored high waisted shorts and dip-hem top make the ideal sports-luxe look along with the sheer sleeve bomber jacket and a structured neon mini cross body bag.
