Fashion Recap for Feria 2015

Less than two weeks for the first big Feria of the Season - Sevilla - After sitting in several fashion shows, and scoping the windows of almost all Flamenca stores in Sevilla and Jerez... 

I can say that solid colors are big, especially yellow.  

Yellow in SIMOF 2015

Black, red and polka dots are always in style, but classic dots weren't the main focus at the fashion show.  Don't worry you can't go wrong with classic polka dots.

Sonia e Isabelle does wonders with dots and lace.  Two piece outfit.

The introduction of gold in almost all the accessories, and on dresses too, gold prints, like Gustav Klimt.  Accessories should not be too shiny, just antique gold.

I think "El Dorado" is here in Sevilla.

Bright colors as well as muted, pastels colors are the choice for this year's dresses, but not fluorescent or neon colors, so toss it out, it is probably too old (several years too old) to wear it again.

Muted , soft colors, far from boring

Flower prints are still very big, yes those grandma prints, that somehow look so wonderful in a Flamenca dress or skirt.

Embroidered shawls with smaller fringes are what a plain pastel dress needs.

Prints, embroidery or velvet shawls add interest to a solid dress
Striking combination for an orange dress

One plain rose is a classic, but flower bunches, prairie flowers, hydrangeas and carnations are very big this year.  Some designers have introduced gold flowers that work really well with the gold prints.

Lace tops are big, in sexy black or red for a very modern look, and the classic white or off white, go really well with the floral vintage style skirts.

Lace and baby Jesus!  Love it.

Sleeves, please, please please, wear sleeves.  Dresses are so elegant with sleeves.  The ruffles are bigger, the sleeves wider, it really makes a big difference. So wear sleeves, please.

Sleeves add volume and interest to the outfit

This sleeve works well with the outfit, it balances proportions of a very ornate skirt

You can really do wonderful things with a sleeve

Accessories, earrings and combs, are very colorful, don't be shy and just wear one, wear many.  If you don't feel comfortable with huge flowers and combs, use many baby combs and flowers all over the head for maximum impact without feeling like the "crazy flower lady".

Notice the hair accessories, flower and shawl

Hair is still up and polished, not every hair in its place but a bun is the style. It is classic, and goes well with all dress styles.  

Different hair dos, but all hair is up

Hair doesn't have to be perfect, just up and polished
