Chevrons, sequins, stripes, oh my! The Alice and Olivia Fall 2012 collection was fun and flirty, elegant and edgy.
I’m not a huge fur person (although my inner Leo does love the faux stuff), but I’m drawn to this head-to-toe red ensemble. And does it get any better than a skirt that combines sequins AND chevrons? I think not.
Now these are my kind of evening gowns: floor-length sequins with a sexy open back in thick black and gold stripes or dazzling emerald green. And I LOVE the idea of pairing an evening gown with a cropped leather jacket. (Brides, this look works for wedding gowns, too!)
Black (and white) Magic
These two dresses are pretty, pretty, pretty, and reflect two strong trends: a mini skirt + long, sheer skirt combo, and a Little White Dress with a demi lace peplum. Wouldn’t these be beautiful alternatives to wedding gowns?
Long, lean, and green! More peplums, more stripes! There’s something Joker-ish about these two ensembles, yes, but their cool factor is no joke.
Well played, Alice and Olivia. Well played.
