The asymmetric trend is back! For example, one-shoulder dresses, or tops with different sides like we saw at Lanvin. And don't forget the asymmetrical bathing suits! They are simply irresistible... designers from La Perla (pictured) to H&M would agree. You don't need to spend a lot to try this popular trend for summer- check stores like ASOS and Selfridges for asymmetric and one-shouldered styles that'll bring runway style to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Click over to Girlscene to see their favorite asymmetric tops, dresses, even skirts!
I don't know about you, but I happen to find the process of rationalizing lingerie purchases pretty easy. Did I really need five more pairs of aerie boyshorts? No, but I won't need to do laundry as often. That Honeydew satin cami set? Totally unexpected and cute- plus, you have to give your other lingerie pieces a break sometimes. And it goes without saying that there's no such thing as too much Natori or Hanky Panky- it's a fact. But when it comes to lingerie by innovative Italian label La Perla, the pretty price tags might require a bit more rationalizing than usual. The luxury lingerie brand makes some of the most captivating underthings you'll ever lay eyes on, and with just a few key pieces you'll no longer see your lingerie collection as a mix of boring yet functional basics punctuated by oh-so pretty, oh-so unpractical things. Take this delicately adorned push up bra from the Malizia collection- its simple shape and subtle yet stunning embroidery make it a top drawer must-have, and at $113, it's quite reasonable as far as luxury lingerie goes- plus, you can always try it on in-store and then search sites like barenecessities.com for sales. For luxurious design at an easy to swallow price, look to La Perla Studio- this mesh bra is perfect for everyday wear, but looks anything but basic and is just $42. With Valentine's Day just days away, I've found some of the dreamiest La Perla creations, just begging to be wrapped and unwrapped this Saturday (even if you just buy them for yourself).
