Veiled in Chiffon

Since it is rearing May, I’m ready to wear clothing that is fresh, light and full of movement. Recently, it has been said to death, but warm breezy weather needs to come a little bit faster. It’s essentially time to add a little life into our wardrobe. For Spring and upcoming Summer, I’m looking for clothing and fabric that has some personality and movement.

According to Style.com, chiffon fabric and peekaboo veiling is on the trend report for Spring 2013. I have been eyeing this a lot, too. Chiffon is a perfect fabric and texture for the warmer weather that is hopefully coming up. It flows, gives movement and provides an extra elegance to an outfit.

Chiffon is usually the fabric to use for chic blouses and flowing maxi skirts or dresses. I love a chiffon dress on a girl. Chiffon dresses always look so flattering on many different body types. The fabric is also very light and shows off movement, which is very fitting for the breezy Spring weather.

The see-through or ‘peekaboo’ trend is also very practical. A little see-through piece is edgy, yet can still be tasteful. I’ve seen many looks on the runway that help me draw inspiration.

Here are some chiffon pieces that have caught my eye:

Rochas Spring 2013 RTW. I really love this maxi skirt. Especially that it has a high-waist. It looks luscious, very light, and flow-y. Pairing this with a tank top or crop top could be a great outfit. (Image from Style.com)
