What a Girl Wants
A boho-chic dress in deep purple, with jute lace around the neckline and on the pockets.
A pleated sleeveless blouse, embellished with a rose motif brooch, is worn with grey pants and black peep-toes.
For a bold fashion statement, accessorise in shades of gold. Here, a flirty dress in peacock blue is teamed with below-the-knee leggings.
A silk, geometric-patterned poncho, with a drawstring at the waist, complements every figure. Harem pants, all the rage world over, can be worn with a poncho (shown here) or with a plain tee. Play it up with accessories for a night out.
A flattering halter neck, cinched high at the waist, is perfect to wear to a beach party. It is paired with brown leggings and white pearls for extra oomph.
Every girl needs that perfect dress to go with those gorgeous black pumps or maybe a pair of gladiator sandals to go with, well, just about anything.
