Keeping it classic


There are some things in fashion which just work. You only have to examine the collections of your favourite designers to see repetition in tailoring , drapery , finishing or fabric types. Or look at garments which are considered wardrobe staples - such as pencil skirts , empire waist dresses and pin tuck pants.

These ideas and themes are repeated because they are successful - they look , wear and function fantastically allowing the end wearer to look and feel fantastic. Its an everybody wins situation. The pictured printed cap sleeve jacket from Arden B is a great example of this. The feminine jackets tailoring is reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn whilst the slight puffed cap sleeve , waist tie and back tailoring will flatter any body shape.
