seen by stylist Tatiana Cinquino
This spring, fashion brings us bold trends that may seem difficult to pull off. To help you make the most out of the season’s musts have, we asked stylist Tatiana Cinquino to comment and advise on the hottest spring looks.
B: First of all, beSleek would like to know what your personal favorite trends are this spring?
T: I would say that the Black and White trend appeals to me a lot. Trends tend to come back from previous collections. The trend of the moment is often a take on one of the last season’s trend, but with a new twist. This is perhaps the reason why I am delighted by the new again Black and White. Last fall, designers included the concept in geometric shapes. This season, black and white is bold and drastic!
B: The Japanese influence is at its highest. It works well on the runway, but how can you incorporate a kimono into your office look?
T: The kimono is an interesting Japanese garment. However, it is not appropriate for the office. An alternative to reproduce a ready-to-wear kimono is to wear a long wrap dress. Asian prints seen on a tailored suit or on a sheath dress are also interesting.
B: The color black is dominant this season. How do you think it's possible to mix this color with your spring wardrobe?
T: Actually, I adore black. I wear it during winter and summer. It is definetly possible to coordinate this color all year long if you know how. For spring and summer, I suggest black shorts designed in a lightweight fabric, sheer black options or a black jumpsuit is also summery and chic. Flowy dresses and skirts are other alternatives.
B: The denim this season you prefer it ...
T: I love denim shirts. The patchwork is also interesting. And I would say the denim look from head to toe. It is never too much. Denim is a classic, so it is not risky to invest in a denim look.
