Summer season Trend
By Elysze Held
This is the time of 12 months it is practically much too sizzling to go out right until following 6 p.m. Then a single can seize the ocean breeze although sitting down exterior at The Ritz-Carlton Cantina or beneath the tiki huts at the Sonesta.
I have been very negligent in my seasonal buying this calendar year. Spring arrived and went and now the query is what to do with summertime. Just use less? Maybe the gorgeous Colombian and Brazilian women to whom apparel is an alternative can get absent with that, but not me. I’ll go on on a research for white linen.
I basically did undertaking out in the midday sun alongside with thousands of other Essential Biscayners for our Fourth of July Parade, an party this town does suitable.
Walking the street offered enough time to survey the crowds. The Fourth of July Parade is typically not a superior style event in the Village of Important Biscayne. I did not catch even one of the IT trend statements of the time that are heralded in all the trend magazines, and section retailer commercials. There were no light airy, flirty sundresses or superior-heeled sandals in sight shorts or minis with midriff-baring halter-tops or nautical striped 3-quarter length cotton jerseys with white denims and crimson patent leather platforms.
We are just also warm and thoroughly having fun with ourselves in the minute to fret about currently being on the greatest-dressed lists. But what was found on all nearby fashionistas at the 2006 Fourth of July Parade? Designer sun shades.
Chanel: a Large amount of massive C’s out there in black, white, silver and gold. Dior: The latest mirrored aviator wraparounds. Prada: Dark and vast-framed, definite star attraction. Gucci: Big sq. black shades. Armani: Oval, spherical, square tortoise-shell frames. Valentino: White,Amber and gem colored. Versace: snakeskin patterned frames.
The logos of each and every around the world trend dwelling flashed right before my eyes and my head was spinning. Key Biscayne is IN!
