Designers have drawn inspiration from the far east this fall with a collection of Asian inspired styles that sizzle. Are you fan?
If you like the look and feel this new trend but are nervous to try it for fear you will look like you are wearing a costume, here are a few tips on how to wear the trend over 40:
Designers like Dries Van Noten and Rag & Bone (above) used bold Asian inspiration in their designs. You can take cues from these expensive designs and look for them in more affordable, subtle versions ike this pretty Citron Print Silk Tunic with Camisole. It’s very understated yet right on trend and perfect for gals over 40 with a bit of midlife tummy to hide.
If you are looking for a little cover-up to make your outfit pop, this exotic print Etheral Silk jacket from Citron is a great choice. It’s feminine, floaty and the perfect statement piece. Don’t wear it with anything heavy or thick underneath. Something smooth and light will complement the look.
|Far East Fantasy
Love this Carmen Marc Valvo jacquard sheath in this bold exotic blend of colors. Forget the boring little black dress. Try this to your next special gathering and wow them!
Here’s a jacket with personality! If you want to stand out, then the irridescent purple/blue color + striking ombre pattern of this Ming Wang Mandrin Collar Jacket will do the trick. Gorgeous with black pants or a black skirt to let it take center stage.
|Sumptuous, Sheer and Sexy
Sheer fabric, Velvet Appliques, Komono sleeves make this Citron Peacock Feather Print Jacket a stand out piece. Can’t you just imagine this lounging around the fire with a glass of wine wearing this?
Cut out necklines are a big part of the Asian trend and so is this classic Chinese red. Ralph Lauren put the two together and designed a top that is understated, elegant and a very easy way to add some oriental flavor to your wardrobe. To add even more of an oriental flair after 5, forget the hair down with hoops and try putting your hair in a chic topknot with tassel earings!
