Flirtatious Clothes | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aIt’s Friday Fashion at Valentina’s design. Do you agree that if we don’t dress for work or to cover our bodies, clothes should be flirtatious? I think so. You should dress first for yourself to look good for YOU because you like who you are, the way you are, then you should dress to please others whose compliments will boost your self-esteem. If we dress well and combine clothes elegantly with whimsy, people will notice it. Believe it, doors will open!

Every season I follow various fashion designers, everyone has his/her own interpretation of each upcoming season and they are fun to watch. For the next Fall 2014, I choose the line of an Italian designer Giambattista Valli. I find it very fresh, whimsical and wearable. The story of the scarf on the models’ head is the designer’s fantasy. He envisioned hard-partying women who the next morning wakes up with a huge headache for drinking too much the night before, takes the white napkins wrapped around a champagne bottle laying in the bucket and ties it around her head to go for a walk in the garden. All right, the story is pretty, but we don’t have to wrap our head in a kitchen napkin to go out the door, as you see the models in the slideshow. I imagine most of us have a different life than a fashion show.

I love the soft line for a whimsical look, the vertical stripes for elongating the figure and the transparency for flirting. I love the short pants underneath some of the transparent floral dresses with a cute jacket over it. I think the cascading flowers over the legs gives that effect of “now you see it and now you don’t” that is really sexy. My favorite is the Capri striped pants with the long skirt wrapped around and open in the front. It is smashing, a bit retro 1950s and I will do it.

If you like this look and without taking anything away from the designer, can you make adaptations to some of your clothes to achieve this look? If you have a long skirt, can you lift a corner of the skirt up to a certain point, pin a large brooch and expose part of your leg? Go ahead be flirtatious with clothes, it is in our nature and I can help you with that. Ciao,
