Sometimes less is more, as evidenced in Oscar de Renta’s 2014 Resort collection. The mood for this collection was particularly bright and cheery, with pops of colour and pretty floral patterns embellishing simple silhouettes.
This collection combined both traditional and modern patterns cut in crisp, tailored style suits with draped ’50’s style dresses. The fabrics were captivating in gorgeous shades of cobalt blue through to sweet tones of pink. Floral dresses, peplum tops and other ladylike characteristics were strong features within the collection.

After bowing to pressure from the public, British fashion brand M&S has promised customers that 90% of their dresses in their fall collection will feature both 1/2 and 3/4 length sleeves. If you’re like me, you might be thinking its time for a fresh, few fashion look in the sleeves department. Perhaps its finally time to finally toss the strapless/sleeveless look!
The chain’s new style director has made a new pledge to customers: “‘You told us you wanted dresses with sleeves, so for autumn 90per cent will have sleeves. I can personally promise that I mean real sleeves, full, three-quarters and half.” This promise came after customers criticized the brand of the dominance of unflattering sleeveless and cap-sleeve dresses.
The new collection will feature bright pops of colour and longer hemlines with a greater use of wool, silk and cashmere fabrics.
I have a suspicion that M&S won’t be the only fashion label to bring sleeves back… Just take a peek at our latest fashion raves for a subtle hint.
Beautiful standout pieces with feminine accents complete the look for Alice Temperley’s Enchanted Cruise 2014 collection which has been dubbed her fravourite line to date.
Chic floral prints combined with vintage silhouettes create a fresh yet delicate look. Beauty is in the details with lace accents and delicate appliquéd three-dimensional laser flowers, primarily buttercups and primrose which are strategically placed to avert the eye to the feminine silhouette. Temperley has creatively reworked the Fifties couture proportions with modern fabrics in ultra-feminine palettes for a sophisticated look.
It looks like we are not the only fan’s of Temperley’s creations:
