That 70’s Look – Pleats and Tiers


by Cherrys Gavini

One of the hottest Spring-Summer looks is the 1970’s vintage fashion.  And this season’s vintage look can be recreated with ClothesRUs Pleats and Tiers.  Remember with any 70’s fashion the focus is on the waist.  So whether you are wearing a pleated shirt or a tiered dress, always draw attention to your waist.  The beautiful thing with pleated and tiered clothes clothing is that it is very forgiving with our mid section.  So this waist focus can be brought about by a wide belt scrunching your dress or your blouse accentuating your waist and camouflaging the rest with the pleats and tiers.

You can pull this look together with our Plus Size Earth Tone Swirl Blouse With Front Pleats.  And pair it up with some wide legged jeans and a few buttons undone giving off that sexy ‘70’s vibe, much like Selma Hayek’s pleated ensemble.

by Cherrys Gavini

Months and sometimes even a year before the actual 2011 spring comes the fashion designers work to create their Spring 2011 Collection.  One of the confirmed Top 10 Spring 2011 Trends that the Houses of Christian Dior to Miu Miu is employing is the pattern play of blooms in women’s apparel which I believe would never go out of style in spring.  I mean flowers in spring?  Well that’s the reason why the season is called spring- budding of trees, flowers a bloom- yes, definitely flowers in our clothes for spring!

And as early as today, some are already sporting the fashion; even celebrities have joined the bandwagon in sporting early the flowery clothes spring trend.  And because this style never goes out of fashion, almost everyone has a floral dress stuck in our closet somewhere.  We might be tempted to go ahead and wear it ourselves with all this spring fever going around.  But mind you, not all flower patterns will flatter you.  So how do you sport a spring dress like a celebrity?  You amp up your wardrobe with the latest flower trend in women’s dresses directly from Clothes R Us closet:  Junior Floral Print Dress With One Shoulder Styling and save 60% for only $ 29.99 (originally at $75).  And since the weather is still a bit cold, you can pair it up with a Missy Cable Knit Sweater With Fringe and save another 50% for only $24.75 (originally at $49.99).  Now accessorize with some chandelier earrings, high heels or booties, flowing curly hair, a dewy make up and you are now: spring ready, currently in with the pre-spring trend, and cold proof- You get all these and even get to be fabulously looking like Jessica Biel with Clothes R Us without scrimping on style.
