The 2020’s Fashion Decade Begins…
Posted on February 11 2020
Crisp white shirts by Foxcroft, with a Joseph Ribkoff striped blouse shown in the centre – don’t ever need ironing.
The research and new technology that’s come along in the past 20 years is paying big dividends to consumers starting off this decade. If you hate ironing as much as I do, you’ll appreciate the many wrinkle free fashions available.
New fabrics, environmentally friendly detergents, shorter gentle-washing cycles all contribute to saving cost and the environment. Dryers use only low heat and mother nature is drying our clothes when we ‘hang to dry’. This is all enhancing the effort to save our planet.
Tango Mango tops add bright color to a SoftWorks navy jacket.
Softworks’ spring collection offer a rainbow of colors in dresses and sleeveless, short-sleeved or long-sleeved tops. How refreshing, and great choices. SoftWorks is made in Canada. The rayon fabric is a natural product, breathable and very practical for warmer climates. Their soft, comfy pants which come in petites would be ideal for travelling.
These garden designs of flowers and leaves in blue and white summer dresses by Frank Lyman are enough to cheer anyone up – just beautiful!
This is a clever way to mix and match different designers with a Frank Lyman pink/navy pleated skirt and a soft pink Sympli top.
Joseph Ribkoff shows his versatility in design with this sophisticated, conservative plaid jacket to a wild tropical green tunic top.
The Papa brand is showing many different loose and comfortable dresses and tops for the spring and summer. There are some gorgeous colors in subdued pinks and blues and multi-colored tops available. Their fabric has always been very soft to the touch.
Q. & A.
Q. I like to wear the comfortable, flowing styles but feel they sometimes make me look heavier and don’t show off my figure. Can you tell me how I can have a little of both in the same outfit?
A. For a different look you could belt your top with an ‘Unbelt’ available in many colors. These belts are completely adjustable and stretchy so you can still be comfortable. If the top is long enough, try knotting it at one side and let it drape up at an angle (a great look). The t-shirt clips are back in style, which can be used to clip your top in the middle or on the side. You can still show off your fabulous curves and be comfortable.
