Ladies, it is official. Here at our Encinitas, Phoenix and San Diego resale locations, we are a mess over the new Yves Saint Laurent spring 2014 collection.
It is sexy, it is sleek, and it will blow your little-black-dress-loving mind.
What exactly has us quaking in excitement in our Prada Buckle Wrap booties? Three words: prints, minis, menswear.
Fellow fashionistas, it should come as no surprise that the gorgeous YSL has yet again produced another jaw-dropping collection. We’re talking the-first-time-you-saw-trailers-for-Magic-Mike jaw dropping. And because the pros at our Encinitas, Phoenix and San Diego designer resale stores are always working to help you sexify your wardrobe, we’ll give you the DL on everything you need to know to YSL the hell out of your current look.
We’ve gone Gaga for Tulle, we’ve rocked it for a night out in New York, but today, we’ve got our eyes on something a little more…dangerous. Yes, we’re talking prints. From huge, lush lips to the classic jungle cat to geometric shapes, YSL proves that all print is hot print and their spring 2014 collection is full of it. Want to get a little crazy? (We know you do.) Mix and match bold short-shorts with patterned sweaters or pair your favorite new print dress with a zebra-striped leather jacket. The final YSL touch? Va-va-voom hair.
During the winter months, we flirted with fleece, ogled the oversized, and worked it out in wool, but girls, it’s time, once again, to don the mini. Lucky for us, the YSL collection is all about showing off those stems. Whether you’re rocking a wrap dress, lace shorts, or a gorgeous high-waisted (animal print?) skirt, we have one rule and one rule only: make it mini. Oh, and don’t forget the pumps.
Just a few weeks ago, we wrote a how-to when it comes to menswear called In His ShoesShirtsJeans. And while we love the slouchy comfort of boyfriend jeans, YSL has kicked the look up a notch by making menswear form-fitting, flattering, and flat out fabulous. Case in point, the fitted and glamorous pantsuit. Start with a pair of skinny, high-waisted, capri-style trousers and add a looser jacket. Chanel Diane Keaton with a white collared shirt and black skinny tie, and top it off with black heels and loose, wavy hair. Looking for something a little more casual? Skip the trousers and rock the look with a pair of skinny jeans. Add a blazer for added oomph. Bonus points to the girl who tops off the look with a cocked fedora. Bogart, who?
If we had to sum up our new fave style in just one word, we’re pretty sure it’d be daring. And we’re pretty sure we won’t be able to get enough of it. Dare to join us? We thought so.
