Ruf­fles, bub­bles among looks at fash­ion week

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - Now -

TORONTO — Toronto’s LG Fash­ion Week last week showed what de­sign­ers of­fer for spring and sum­mer style in new col­lec­tions.

Ruf­fles were among the most pop­u­lar and dom­i­nant flour­ishes ac­cent­ing de­signs in the col­lec­tions this sea­son.

The jumper demon­strated its ver­sa­til­ity as a piece that could tran­si­tion from ca­sual to dressed up for evening.

The bi­cy­cle short has gone from road­way gear to high fash­ion wear. While there was still a fair share of wide-legged trousers and slim­mer-fit­ting pairs on the cat­walk, pant hems were on the rise.

There’s no need to slide those bulky line­backer-style shoul­der pads into your suit jacket. But a lit­tle added de­tail­ing on the shoul­ders, rem­i­nis­cent of 1980s styles, is def­i­nitely on the hori­zon.

Cock­tail dresses and skirts got some added lift this sea­son as bub­ble bot­toms took flight. The gath­ered, tucked and tai­lored look gave hem­lines a flirty, fem­i­nine touch.
