Bardot 2018

The term Bardot has stemmed from the iconic french model and actress, Brigitte Bardot. She was popularized for often wearing off the shoulder iteams sporting a bare look. The sexualized 1950’s style then evolved into current fashion statements.

The name Bardot then ventured to be a high brand clothing store. Bardot, the Australian brand often promotes styles from the famous namesake. There seasonal trends, especially summer and spring still showcase the infamous Cannes film festival look Brigitte pulled off.

Now in the 2018 spring and summer fashions have decided to reflect the off the shoulder look. Some stores are even calling these products bardot tops and dresses. So, the iconic look has made a comeback.

The off the shoulder style was one I decided to try. To style this bardot look I choose a lighter color dress. The pink and creme gingham pattern dress was to accentuate feminine style. Likewise, I choose a dress with girly frills on the bottom cut of the clothing iteam.

 Since off the shoulder dresses normally have a straight cut often making it hard to make a figured tailor, I opted for a belt. I went with a pale pink waist tie belt to accentuate a formed look. I then paired the dress with a pair of light pink heels with floral designs for a fun mix of prints.  I then added more accessories to the mix with a pale pink sorority layered choker necklace.

This clothing  choice was the perfect summer outfit.

Monochrome Spring

As spring and summer trends start to fly in it becomes essential to rember to classic chic look. Every spring and summer clothing store is going to be piled with bright colors and floral prints. Which are all lovely and viable options.
However, there are other ways to sport a spring look without charging up a storm for pastels.A monochromatic color scheme can still achieve the same spring or summery feel.
A lace blouse with trimmings is a fresh represntation of the vitality of life. Everyone who is in the workforce probably has this iteam too. Another wardorbe stable is a pair of pants. If you have pants or a skirt in a solid color with scalloped lining its a cute way to descritely incorporate a floral outlook. Likewise a patteren coat can bring in a splash of summer youth without the bright colors.
Overall you can still have a nice and soothing summer and spring outfit from your basic wardrobe needs. Staples in grey, black, creme, white, nude, and beige can still be worn during these seasons. The monochromatic colors are to be utilized every season and can provide chic looks.
