What could be more exciting than new spring arrivals? Spring is officially in at the LILA Fashion International store and web shop, so get ready to embrace a palate of sweet pastel hues, prints galore (think florals, pinstripe and gingham!) and the most romantic, flowing lines you ever did see. Any wonder spring is our favorite season?
We invited burgeoning Fashion Blogger and our darling former Merchandising Intern, Jasmine, to model this spring-inspired look at our recent photoshoot. Isn't she a doll? There is so much to love about this look - for one, we are major proponents of mixing prints. Pairing a floral crop on top of gingham trousers lends this look a little dimension - and wouldn't you say it's a little more playful than pairing it with a plain old white tee? Pictured is the Tuyauterie Top, which is perfectly lightweight and printed with sweet floral blooms.
This season, high-waisted is also having a moment. This is definitely a trend we get behind! Notice how the gingham trousers sit just at the belly button; we love how it flatters the curves, while also accentuating the waistline. Even better, if you're a fan of the crop top (like we are!), the Pleat Trousers rise up to meet it, revealing just enough skin to be sexy, without the overexposure. If the crop top is not your thing, consider pairing it with a solid tee or tank top, slightly tucked in the front, and a low top tennis shoe or wedge to suit the occasion!
Accessories were kept at a minimum as the outfit itself is loud enough. Do you agree? Earrings from LILA's own jewelry line (did you know every piece is handmade in Athens, Greece?) was paired with this look. Featured are the Tiger Eye Shimmer Earrings, fashioned from genuine tiger eye and Swarovski crystal with sterling silver hooks, which are currently sold out. However you can shop a similar pair - Tiger-Eye Tear Drop Earrings - in our e-shop! We also paired the look with the Metal & Strass Bracelet in two colors - camel and rose gold. The bracelet brings a little edge to the ensemble with a combination of gold studded hardware and rhinestones on supple Greek leather.
The Wave Clutch (hello, summer!) polished off the look! Inspired by the Mediterranean Sea, this handcrafted leather clutch from Greece features a unique shape in soft pink pastel. This color is currently available in-store only, but you can still shop it in White, Cobalt Blue and Serenity in our online shop.
Where to style this look? Sky's the limit. Consider it for a picnic date in the park, a brunch date with friends or leisurely stroll downtown. All for now! xx
