How to wear the fluid trend without drowning in it

Latest post by me on Pret-Amoda blog...
The perfect and most comfortable trend for the summer time is the fluid drapes. Imagine yourself in a fluid silk dress relaxing with a mojito near the pool, get the point? This trend is not at all difficult to wear but sometimes it can get overwhelming and it may seem like you are not wearing the dress but the dress is wearing you! So, to avoid such a situation and look summer chic in fluid drapes, read on!
For all body types: Fluid drapes offer a summer silhouette that everyone can pull off. Ladies with curves as well as the zero size girls, all can let loose as this trend is all about the pretty, romantic and feminine look. Find a dress that suits your body type and hugs the curves in right places to show off your body beautifully, just not each and every extra bit of fat that you ate at lunch yesterday! 

Balance: Balancing is very necessary no matter what trend you are wearing. With drapes you wanna keep it classy and chic, so avoid ruffles or mixing prints which can look overwhelming and tacky. Try to go for clean lines and you can never be off-balance.

 Accessorize: With a fluid solid color dress with clean lines, you are free to accessorize it the way you want. If you have busy drapes on neck and shoulder, try wearing your hair up and put some big chunky earrings on your ears. And if you have busy drapes flowing from your waistline towards the hem, balance it out with a bold statement necklace and heels. If the dress is too fluid and you want to accentuate your hourglass figure, add a crisp belt to pull the look together.

No need to overspend: You don’t need to pay a hefty price to wear this trend. Go for fluid silk shirt tucked into skinny jeans and heels. Or you can pair a draped maxi skirt along with a metallic tank top to look uber chic. Even soft fluid shorts would do! Let your mind free and be creative!
