Last nights look - a spanish themed ensemble reflecting the 1940s, 50s & 1970s #cuedespacito. This style of playsuit is visible in several stores currently & is based from the 1970s. The bell sleeves were extremely fashionable in the 70s often found in peasant style dresses & tops reflecting the bohemian style of the era. Celebrities including Stevie Nicks frequently wore designs based from medieval styles & normally featured bell sleeves. The sleeves also made a short appearance in the early 2000s in blouses & sweaters with celebrities including Britney Spears often wearing the cut. Playsuits themselves have transended over the decades being altered to match that eras style, however they were first established in the 1940s. This style was worn by teenagers & young women either at the beach or in terms of sportswear. They usually were made of cotton, were brightly coloured or consisted of bold patterns like florals. The most common was a one-piece romper, similarly designed to this one in terms of the waistband defining the waist & the short having a loose wide leg, with a pleat or two, this one has a slit down the side giving an illusion of a very loose pleat. However, the top resembled a button-down blouse whereas this one is more aligned with the 1950s boat neck top, visible in sweaters of the 50s - exposing the shoulders & often paired with a neck tie. I, however accompanied it with a black choker reflecting the grunge style of the 90s. Chokers are great as they create a block accentuating the jawline & bust area. When dealing with patterns its important to utilise the colours within the piece throughout your ensemble to create harmonisation. Patterns can also give the illusion of weight gain, this pattern, however is perfect as the shades are deep. Furthermore the cut comes into the waist & drops disgusing any weight in the stomach, hip & thigh region. When opting for patterns avoid busy & bright as it increases the appearance of weight gain. I paired this ensemble with my 60s-70s inspired thigh high boots & kept is consistent with colours in accessories & makeup - red, nudes & blacks. A smokey eye with a silver shimmer would also look good instead of gold.
