Spring Fashion by Ralph Lauren


“Spectator at its most modern” is how Ralph Lauren defined Spring 2001. Lauren’s collection built upon the polished, well-heeled aesthetic that dominated the New York runways last season, but his new interpretation is graphic and geometric.

Black and white and brown and white served as the leitmotif for mod shift leather dresses, blazers with generous trimmed lapels and pockets and sexy two-tone jeans. The season’s essential crepe de chine skirt pleated, to the knee, and paired with a casual cashmere and silk tank was a laid back alternative to a sinful white crocodile minisuit. Chevron skirts, pinstriped jackets and a glen plaid pantsuit were all worn with the same strings of pearls that were a Fall favorite.

The evening looks were also ladylike and controlled Lauren gave lace camisoles and georgette pants lift with a touch of beading, and closed his presentation with three impressive floor-length striped gowns.

Necklines in Evening dress


Evening dresses for women come in a wide variety of colors, fabrics, hemlines and necklines. The seemingly endless choices allow women to find a style that works best for their personality and body type. Popular necklines include V-neck, strapless and halter.

V Necklines

V-shaped necklines became increasingly popular in the 60’s, as women wore less structured clothing. Wearing an evening dress with a V-neck is a great way to elongate the neck and display your collarbones. The depth of a V-neck can vary, ranging from a short v-shape to a deep plunge, so if you’re concerned about revealing too much cleavage, be sure to try on the dress prior to purchasing. V-necklines are universally flattering and work well with any body type.

A strapless neckline is a great way to showcase your neck, shoulders and collarbones. A strapless neckline on an evening gown looks elegant and instantly dressed-up. The shape of a strapless neckline can vary, and popular strapless shapes include sweetheart and straight-across cuts. A sweetheart cut on a strapless dress is shaped like the top of a heart and can show a little more cleavage than a straight cut. A straight-across line on a strapless evening gown can provide more coverage on top and still look sexy and flattering.

Having a halter neckline on your evening gown displays your neck, arms, shoulder, and the amount of cleavage you desire. In a halter neckline, the fabric wraps up from the underarm and around the neck. Halter necklines on evening gowns can have very thin to very thick fabric straps around the necks. Because this neckline pulls up before tying or clasping around the back of the neck, this gives your chest an added boost. A halter neckline on an evening gown could be a great choice for women with larger breasts who want added support, or for women with smaller breasts who wish to create cleavage and look a bit perkier.

Women fashion accessories


In today’s world, we are often judged by how we dress, how we look, and how we carry ourselves. Fashion is on the front and is it easy to get left behind. The smallest fashion accessories can bring out an outfit. Even though things change each season, there are some essential and easy to get fashion accessories that stand the test of time.

Spring 2010


Hard times. The Great Recession we’re all living through got Ralph Lauren thinking about American resiliency. “I am inspired by the character of the worker, the farmer, the cowboy, the pioneer women of the prairies,” he wrote in his program notes. So in place of the polo fields or any of his other tony stomping grounds, Ralph Lauren took us back to the dust bowl for Spring.00010Models in newsboy caps wore faded and torn oversize jeans with blue work shirts; patchwork overalls; nightshirts in mattress-ticking stripes; or sweet calico print dresses with white ankle socks and oxfords with heels.

It was cinematic, like most of Lauren’s collections. And it goes without saying that his vision is a romanticized one: Henry Fonda’s character in The Grapes of Wrath didn’t carry a lizard-skin bag. In fact, the show played like a rags-to-riches tale, a story line dear to the designer’s heart. After a few white cotton organdy dresses and some thirties-esque suits—think pinstriped three-pieces with cropped and gathered pants or a boxy d.b. with fuller trousers—the work jackets and carpenter pants reappeared in blue ombré silk charmeuse, the nightshirts came striped with beads, and the overalls were transformed into a floor-grazing lamé dress. A pair of evening jeans, completely covered in silvery beads save for the fraying holes, took the concept to the limit.

When Lauren came out for his bow, it was to the tune of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone.” He’ll see the other side of this recession—no one works harder than he does; he’s the great American brand.
