Latest Fashion Trends: Neon Pastels and Frye’s Fashion Sneakers

Spring Fashion Springing From Our Imaginations

Neon Peach Shift Dress

The sound of waves breaking against the sand is soft, yet all-encompassing. Seagulls swoop over you. You lay, eyes shut, stretched out on your towel. The smells of salt and suntan lotion always tickling at the edge of your thoughts.

It’s getting late. You check under the hip of your bikini bottom for how much sun you’ve gotten: white skin left over from your long winter hibernation is flanked by two strips of pink, un-sunscreened skin that couldn’t quite stay undercover during the day. The pink skin, in turn, is framed by the lovely brown expanse of your newly tanned body. Since your hips are beginning to look like Neapolitan ice cream you decide to call it a day.

After a shower outside and then another inside, and a quick nap on a wicker sofa that resembles your grandmothers handbag, you are ready to go out. You want to slip into something  that will transition you effortlessly from day to night. Something that is as much at home eating cotton candy on the boardwalk, as it is sipping cocktails on a moonlit patio. Something that is as playful and as sophisticated as you are.

Latest Fashion Trends: Spotlighting Neon Pastels Neon Peach Shift Dress

The Neon Punch Shift Dress has the delicate whimsy of pastels and the electric vibrancy of neon. When looking for key pieces for spring, many a minx will be wise to incorporate this frock into their spring wardrobe.

Peach, Neon, Shift Dress

Peach Pop Shift Dress

For such a little item of clothing this the Neon Punch Shift Dress has a lot to say! It is just as much a 1960’s shift dress as it is a 1990’s skater dress. This clean lined dress allows the wearer to move around freely. The simple and flattering silhouette likes to pop up from time to time throughout modern times, often when youth culture is ready to stand up and say something. When there is something worth saying a Minx wants to be able to move comfortably, to “shift” about as she makes her stand.

Neon Peach Shift Dress

The color is amazing. It retains that unattainable glow of sunrise and sunset. It is the love child of acidic sorbet and pastel sherbert. While the tailoring and lines are mod, the deep V of the neck, short sleeves, and the gorgeous keyhole back make it a softer and more feminine envisioning of the classic shift dress.

Fashion Sneakers Brought To You By Frye

We paired this dress with a low top Frye sneaker. The black leather helps to nudge this look into a casual direction without loosing any of the sophistication. This shoe choice gives yet another nod to the skater look, but we think that this look would be equally as brilliant paired with a sandal.

Double Strand Necklace

We chose a delicate geometric double chain necklace to keep the look fun, fresh and on trend. The triangles create a nice geometric focal point on the neon pastel background, like a sailboat silhouetted against the setting sun. Now take sail Minxs: wear the sunset, be a sunrise. Stand up and shift!

Trend Forecast for Spring: The Romantic Bohemian

Winter has, at least for a brief and wondrous spell, released us from it cold, iron grasp. Crocuses and daffodils have begun to tentatively pop their little translucent heads out of the thawing ground. The breeze is warmer and more generous, the very quality of the light shining down between the still-bare branches is full of hope.

This is the time of year to unwind winter scarves from pale necks, peel off layer after layer of sweaters. We unzip and unbutton until we can delight in the freedom of unencumbered movement. There is no time like the present to embrace the Bohemian trend that is taking over this Spring.

How to Wear Bohemian Fashion

As the weather continues to warm we will be seeing a rise in Bohemian influences in fashion from the runways to the sidewalks. Airy garments with plenty of movement, embellished with embroidered details will be popping up with the same speed and vigor as the tulips in the coming months.

We recommend pairing the floaty blouses and tunics associated with this 2015 trend with skinny jeans. This creates a pleasing contrast of different volumes within the outfit.

Bohemian Fashion for Spring

A Minx will be wise to remember to delight in the play of volume while planning her outfits. Volume is just one element of how we chose our clothes. Some Minxes like only loose, flowing clothes, while others prefer tight, streamlined garments. We challenge you to pinpoint your comfort level of volume. It may inspire a fun and welcome change for your spring outfits yet to come.

Cute Spring Outfits: Don’t Forget the Shoes!

It is easy to automatically think of sandals when thinking of the Bohemian aesthetic. The hippies of the 1960’s and ‘70’s, the women of Gustav Klimt’s paintings, and classical Greek sculptures all influence the look and what is has come to mean to Minxes the world over. Like all Minxes that came before us we must stand up and embrace this enduring style as our own. We must mold the style to fit our time, allow the look to be worn and not to wear us.

Nicola Sandals, Chelsea Crew

Nicola Ankle Strap Sandals in Lemon-Lime, Chelsea Crew

This brilliant citrus heel by Chelsea Crew is the statement shoe to compliment the 2015 version of the Bohemian look. (Look familiar? We’re already getting tons of wear out of these! See how else we’ve styled them here!)

Embellishment:Less and More

 Just as we are seeing a subtlety coming back into jewelry trends for this year, so are we seeing a soaring amount of embroidered embellishment on blouses, dresses and tunics. It’s as if the garment itself is taking on the role of accessory and giving the accessories free license to exude understated class.

Whatever the reason may be, we are loving these two trends, how they are relating to each other, and how they are influencing the overall look of fashion for 2015!

Opposites Attract in Our Eco Chic Maxi Dress and Frye Boots

This outfit is fraught with opposing forces, but therein lies its beauty. While styling this look we found it had an amazing amount of inherent kinetic energy. It is a romantic and very pretty look, but don’t let the soft feminine movement of the outfit overshadow the artistic power that lies just beneath its surface.

Eco Chic Maxi Dress, Frye Boots

The Eco-Chic Maxi Dress

The dress is long but made out of the lightest of fabrics. It’s structured, but it’s sheer.

The play between the sea green and black in the fabric’s pattern is reminiscent of the expressive brush strokes in a modernist painting or Chinese calligraphy. The lines slashing across the fabric, creating a vivid and energetic conversation between colors.

Sheer Maxi Dress, Tall Frye Boots

The boots are tall, constructed with high end leather, the seams raw, a large exposed zipper boldly positioned at the inner ankle, but worn over a bare leg.

The face of the model is clean and fresh, hair worn pulled back from the face, but a bold, red pop of color accentuates her lip.

Let Us Feast Our Eyes!

The look is a delicately balanced landscape, it brings to mind Ezra Pound’s poem:

L’ART, 1910

Green arsenic smeared on an egg-white cloth.

Crushed strawberries! Come, let us feast our eyes.

The Frye Company

We love this tall brown boot. It has a classic, clean look that can easily be paired with many different looks. Paired with the sheer maxi dress it give a nod to Stevie Nix!

Leslie Tall Boots Frye

Leslie Artisan Tall Boots, Frye

Somehow Frye has managed to build its line of shoes and boots in what appears to be an always evolving arch of effortless growth. The Frye company stands proudly behind a line that not only delivers everything that a Minx could ask for in the staples of footwear, but enthusiastically continues to be on point with the latest fashion trends year after year. This is not an easy task: to balance classic and trend. If you are looking for a line with these abilities look no further than Frye.

The Sheer Maxi Dress

We will be seeing a lot of sheer blouses and dresses this season. Some of them will have a clearer way to be worn, as with this sheer maxi dress, but many will be very versatile. Keep an eye out for sheer shirt dresses that can be worn open as dusters in a layered look, as tunics, or a dresses in their own right.

Eco-Chic Maxi Dress

Add a Pop of Color

Both makeup and jewelry are laying low in this look, as well as in this season’s trends at large. Jewelry is saying more with less for the moment, and makeup can best be summed up with the idea of a pop of bold romantic color on the lips.

Eco Chic Maxi Dress

Fun mission for Spring 2015: go out foraging for a new vibrant shade for your Minxy mouth!
