According to Louise: Trending Now & Then

I love dipping back into decades past for style inspiration. An A-line 50’s skirt, a graphic 60’s mod print, a little 70’s boho flair. The only decade I’m not a fan of wearing is the 80’s, probably because I rocked out neons as a kid – been there, done that.

This summer I’m coveting the laid-back elegance of a long silhouette. The Maxi Skirt, the Palazzo Pant, the Column Dress: so sexy in an understated way. Check out Cassandra’s winning column dress for sale right now at Express. I remember talking through her inspiration for this piece back in the design studio, and it made me want to go on vacation somewhere glamorous and tropical. Cassandra was inspired by the 60’s, so it would look fab with a pair of giant, cream round shades. But if you want to give yours a different vibe, pair yours with a bright moto jacket or a sleeveless khaki vest, a panama hat or a lightweight knitted turban, and a cute flat loafer or a studded wedge. There are endless possibilities! A long skirt or dress is the perfect simple, versatile piece to give a little edge to. Style it towards any decade you like.
