Feminine details abound this season with a 2010 trend in La Femme. You’ll see ruffles, lace, corset dresses and lingerie elements in the new Spring pieces. Items hitting the stores now are warm-weather ready, like this urban-chic, ruffled blouse by Isabel Marant (above). Another good example, is this Robbi and Nikki emerald green top with soft folds at the side and a detailed ruffle at the chest. It’s sexy, but could easily slip under a jacket or cardigan for work.
Speaking of attractive, this Anthropologie Seeds & Petals bag is definitely whispering in my ear. The spring green color and soft leather, ruffled bag is feminine, without being precious. Maybe it’s the leather-covered buttons that give it some weight, along with the utilitarian brown leather strap. The tough/girly balance strikes the right note. Come sit next to me, gorgeous.
