Our striking ELECTRA dress paired with the BIT 'N BUCKLE belt are a must-have combination this season! Electra is an eye-catcher with its exotic orange medallion placement print, chic sleeveless silhouette and flattering self-belt. To complete the look, cinch it with the adjustable Bit 'n Buckle belt, accented with shiny gold hardware and adorned in a rich orange color tone. And as icing on the cake, it just so happens that both of these spring staples are infused with Pantone’s official fashion color of 2012: Tangerine Orange. Just throw on your favorite pair of sandals and you’re ready to step into spring!
Our inspiration for Spring/Summer lured us to the magical Greek Islands – sundrenched Santorini, Mykonos and Corfu – where the scenery is breathtaking and the lifestyle is carefree.
Introducing an array of new looks, fit for a Grecian goddess this season: feminine, flowing A-line dresses; intricately embroidered kaftans; tie-front floral blouses; Italian eyelet safari-dresses; vibrant splashes of color and exotic prints – a vivid potpourri that captures the spirit of a playful leisure time, far-off and away...
This Spring/Summer ‘12, with an eye to the Greek Islands theme of the Craig Taylor collection, Yul created the perfect accents to complement the line. Bold leather belts that cinch the ethereal, flowing shirtdresses; and striking printed Italian pareos — an elegant cover-up for any island-hopping Greek goddess!
It should be so easy to find the perfect button-down shirt. All you're asking for is good fabric, a nice fit, seams that are pucker-free and buttons that don't fall off before you even get home from the store, right?
So why is it that if you're a woman, the shirt inevitably gaps at the bustline, and if you're a guy, the sleeves or neck never really fit just so? Then there are the issues of cleaning: When the shirt shrinks, those dreaded puckers pop up, the garment is a wrinkled mess after drying, and the color fades — or if white, yellows.
Clothing designers and manufacturers have thrown themselves at this issue, and we're happy to report that there have been improvements lately on a number of these fronts.
Props in the women's department go first and foremost to Rochelle Behrens, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbyist who turned her attention to matters of clothing after tiring of the dreaded bustline gap she had in her daily uniform of suits worn with button-down shirts. The product she introduced a year ago, The Shirt (the-shirt.com), has several hidden buttons on the placket that keep the blouse fastened, an invention both simple and ingenious. There are 10 buttons on her designs, compared with seven or eight on a normal woman's shirt. The Shirt became a big hit after being touted by Oprah Winfrey as a "must-have" for 2011, and retailers like Molly's of Denver are carrying the designs, which sell for about $95. "It's not the most expensive shirt we sell, but it's very popular because women like the fit," says store owner Molly Broeren.
