SS06 Dress Trends I: Printed Silk

The spring collections are in their full form. Out shopping this weekend, I was in awe of all the delicious offerings of this spring, trying to take it all in at once.

In particular, I was very inspired by the dresses at Marc by Marc Jacobs. Especially the printed silk ones, like this one shown above. It is just sooo beautiful, with the shiny slinky material and the vibrant bold prints!

Kay Unger New York also has a rather stunning dress, which is just as shiny and colorful, with a more fitted design.

This floral printed dress from Celine is all you need for a hot summer day.

The colors are not just limited to the blue/green palette either. This red printed paisley (i think?) silk dress from Shoshanna does the trick just as well!

Other similar dresses can be found at Anthropologie, like this one here, designed by Anna Sui. Yet another designer design at an affordable price-well relatively anyway. But I definitely love this dress more than any offered at Target by Luella.

This blue dress from Top Shop is not made of silk, but it looks very vibrant and shiny-in a crinkly way.

And lastly there is this silk floral dress from Free People. But please-not with those boots.

I'm searching for a sundress for spring break. Love the Marc Jacobs, but what I really want is a white linen wrap dress like the one Ms. Johanssen wore in Matchpoint. Has anyone seen anything like it?

I love your blog -- you ladies KNOW your stuff when it comes to fashion. I skipped back to early entries the other day, and noticed that you used to put up "What's In Fashion Now" (in terms of colors, prints, materials, accessories, etc) kind of entries. I loooove the runway coverage, but if you have time, can you put up entries like the aforementioned? I need input big time! (= Thanks, keep up the amazing work!

LOVE the printed silk dresses. I can't wait for summer to get here so I can actually feel justified to buy and wear dresses!

5th Anonymous: Thanks for your suggestion. We were just thinking of writing more about "Whats in fashion now", this post is one of them. In the past two months, we've had the long socks post, the stripes and T-shirt under corset/ cami thing.

....they all look very ugly and cheap(cheap in the way they could make even the most feminine and luxurious woman look cheap).

Maybe it's just because I designed one of those dresses, but I'm a little peeved with Anonymous's comment. There is nothing cheap about silk, all of those dresses look great.

Printed silk is pretty in its own right but impractical and unforgiving. I think a more important note to be found here is the new waistline- last year we had a low, below the hips for dresses whereas this spring it's a high empire waistline or at least above the navel. Much more feminine!

I agree with you on the boots. I really like the Anna Sui and the Free People dresses. Silk is so nice too! I always feel pretty in silk.
