Trend Alert: Pattern

In fashion, color, pattern, and texture are all a part of the current trend and this spring we are seeing more and more pattern. Some big, some small, but pattern and lots of it. There is anything from floral, to the newer watery effect dresses that many celebrities have recently been spotted wearing. If you are someone who sticks to the basic solids, now is the time to dip your toe into the fun world of pattern. Something that is not too scary to try is black and white pattern, I really like the leafy almost damask print of this Belted Ruffle Top from Sweet Peaby Staci Frati. Just having pattern on top draws the eye up to your face and the flattering built in belt really creates or accentuates curves.

 If you are feeling a bit more bold, try an all over pattern. This Chapel Dress by Velvet has a gorgeous pattern that isn’t too overwhelming and comes in two different color combinations that are both flattering, either black and white or red and white.

No matter what your pattern style may be, remember my number one rule: if you aren’t comfortable and confidant in what you are wearing, it won’t look good. So make choices that work for you and not the model in the picture. Now tell me, are you an all over pattern the more the merry type of gal, or a small hits of pattern here and there type of gal?? Me, it depends on my mood!

Trend Alert: The Little Black and White Dress

In this Fashion Trend Alert, we’ve noticed that celebrities everywhere have graced red carpets and late night clubs with a modern twist on the classic “little black dress”.  High contrast print dresses in black and white are popping up everywhere on everyone.  From Pamela Anderson to Blake Lively or Kristen Stewart the black and white dress is definitely a must have this season.  What we at Vintage Fringe love about the black and white combo is it’s extreme versatility and classic style.  Glam up your look with colorful jewelry or shoes (red or yellow would be adorable) to make it your own unique style.  Here at Vintage Fringe we love the Chapel Dress by Velvet.

The sleeves are just long enough that this dress can easily be worn in summer with heels or in the fall with your favorite black boots. We also love how the V-neck gives you a perfect neckline to add a chunky or dangly necklace.

In short, I could wear this dress in so many ways with so many shoes and bags I already have, and the look is so classic I will be wearing this dress for many seasons to come! Check it out today at Vintage Fringe.
