Escape From The Plain Winter

Spots are another must have hottest trend that stretches from accessories such as tights and hats to icon winter pieces like coats. Nothing can be sexier than a transparent spotty tulle t-shirt under a cashmere cardigan, as Salvatore Ferragamo proposes. A part from him, Stella McCartney, Azzaro, Gucci, Jill Stuart, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith, Yohji Yamamoto, and Ives Saint Laurent are among the designers that showed up their spots this season.
The sheer varieties of geometric patterns make them a leading fashion trend. From bright colour block leggings to striped dresses, look for the print that you like the most and combine it with a plain piece to highlight it, as a neutral cashmere sweater and black trousers. Animal prints are also on trend and they are great for complements such as belts, boots, hats, handbags, clutches, and scarves. They can provide vibrant details and contrast to your white t-shirt or your red jumper.
