When it comes to choosing an outfit, we go by its appearance first. What matters to us the most is how beautiful a garment looks. However, according to some sources, this is not the right approach. We should pay close attention to the quality of the piece. In other words, the fabric that your garment is made out of is the most important factor. Do we actually need to scrutinize every single bit of the material in order to purchase something? Or is it just about the proper texture in the fabric? I agree there is a significant difference between lace and silk. But when it comes to playing with texture, are there dos’s and don’ts we must abide by? Let’s see what the most prominent fashion designers think about it.
Surprisingly, fur has been spotted in a number of Spring/Summer collections in past seasons. Not that I dislike fur, but I, personally, consider it to be an exclusively winter material. However, designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Miu Miu have a different point of view. And to be honest, I would be the last person to question their decisions. The Italian brands offered clothing pieces that are so adorable and stylish, even someone as conservative as I would wear them without a second of hesitation.
Mesh is another type of fabric I would never consider myself to be a big fan of. Yet, looking at the outfits by Emilio Pucci, Rebecca Minkoff and Louis Vuitton, I can’t help admiring them. The best thing about these particular articles of clothing is that they are not used in a vulgar manner. Yes, there is some touch of punk, but it is still compatible with the society stereotypes. You can wear either a mesh top over a spaghetti strap dress or an outfit with netting details.
I am sure lace is adored by nearly everyone. Even if some ladies deny their affection for this delicate and feminine material, somewhere deep down inside they love it as much as we do. No wonder, as it manages to make every single outfit more exquisite and romantic. Burberry Prorsum, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci and Elie Saab are well aware of the impression lace outfits create. Although not debuting in the fashion world, it seems like this precious ornament will be in vogue for quite a while.
Organza is my favorite material so far. Fendi, Zimmermann and Dolce & Gabbana presented organza dresses that are styled very differently. Nonetheless, all three frocks make me fall in love with this lightsome and beautiful fabric. Plus, out of all the presented ones, this material will make you feel super comfortable on a hot summer day.
Leather, just like lace, appeared on the runway long ago. Still, it doesn’t seem to fade away, which I like a lot. No matter how cliché it might seem to be, a leather outfit is capable of turning every single lady into a charming seductress. Jean Paul Gaultier, Herve Leger, Tom Ford, Lanvin, Versace and other designers offered mind-blowing pieces featuring this hot material. A sleeveless frock with rich embroidery, a skirt paired with a matching jacket or an off-shoulder coat-dress with an asymmetrical hemline: one has a range of options here.
Now that you have been familiarized with some of the must-haves in fabric trends for the upcoming season, you can breathe out a sigh of relief. You are halfway ready for spring!
