12:42 am
seems on combine a book because you can do that really nicely with materials and patterns in the info like in this case an abstract floral print is combined with stripes under stripes or picked up again on our shoes while the foreign motif shows up again on the pant. another trend wearing many layers one on top of the other ideally oversized. i mean you have to be a little careful about the silhouette so that it looks good as a whole with a blouse company too long in the sweater should be too short you have to achieve a certain harmony. in terms of color palette the spring collection could hardly be more fresh almost all designers off favoring delicate tones that can be easily combined. on the one hand you've got the plaster walls very powdery tones but on the other you have see the glaring hole that is that against those times and. what's new is that these glaring colors can now also be worn
