We’ve got a special treat today: an interview with the lovely Angie from YouLookFab! Angie’s been in the fashion industry for over 16 years and now gives out fashion advice on her site and believes that “style is beyond size, age and price.” We’re honored to present you with Angie’s answers to our pressing fashion questions:
Swim Couture: What are your favorite new trends for winter 09/spring 2010?
Angie: For Winter ’09, I’m besotted with sheath dresses, voluminous pieces, slouch boots, fly away cardigans, stirrup leggings, menswear inspired clothing, moto jackets and non-patent handbags. Basically anything with an 80’s flavour captures my interest. For Spring ’10, the resurgence of lower heel heights and lots of yellow tickles my toes.
SC: What are the worst new trends in your opinion?
Angie: I’m not fond of leg shortening ankle length pants, harem pants with sagging crotches and soaring 4 to 5 inch heels that look unnatural and are
SC: What colors and tones were prevalent during fashion week?
Angie: You’ll see all the colours in Fashion Week. There’s always a lot of black, grey and white with brights and soft pastels. It’s hard to pick out which are most prevalent.
SC: Are you a fan of plaid, and how long do you think this trend will
Angie: Yes! I love plaid skirts and pants and feel that they’re always in fashion as long as the styling is current and flattering.
SC: Are you a bikini or a one piece suit girl?
Angie: I’m a one piece gal for sure.
SC: What are your preferences when it comes to swimsuit style (color options, bandeau vs. triangle, Brazilian cut vs. full coverage, padded vs. unpadded, etc)?
Angie: I like a colourful one-piece swimsuit style that’s high-cut on the thigh and high-cut on the neckline with a super low back. I don’t mind padding as long as it looks natural. I love to match up my swimsuit with a transparent sarong and raybans.
