TREND #1: FEMME FRONTIER
With labels like Christian Dior leading the way (check out their Cruise ’19 collection – to die for!), we see a stunning mix of “Wild, Wild, West” meets runway trending over the 2019 Spring Racing Carnival. Dresses and tops with balloon sleeves and ruffles team beautifully with androgynous hat shapes like straw fedoras & shallow flat top dressy boaters. This season, team the raw masculinity of Clint Eastwood with feminine details, such as embroidery, ruffled ribbon ties and lace. Experiment with “cutsie” under-the-chin ties, slouch a wide-brim hat around your neck (hanging off the back) or let the trim hang untied. Headpieces also follow this trend, such as country-western-esque bows. Moral of the “FEMME FRONTIER” story? Wide brim, ruffles, cute detail.
