Remember those Hervé Léger (and various affordable versions) bandage dresses and skirts that were seen all over the internet, runways, and on celebrities a few years ago? It’s been 3 years and I’m still seeing these bandage styles in stores. The slim fitting trend that hugs a woman’s curves and shows off a feminine silhouette was a staple in fashion then and I think it’s quietly trying to make a comeback.

To be honest, I’m not usually a fan of trends that’s over done to death (ah hem: Zara skorts), but these bandage styles are so sleek, sexy and a classic that has proven to last the test of the fashion trend life span.

I’m loving this nude skirt I had on when paired with white for a clean and fresh summer look, but I’m also loving all the bright colors and prints as well!

Imaginary Outfits with Printed Bottoms

If you haven’t noticed, print and graphic bottoms has been everywhere lately. From the runways to the streets, this 80s trend is coming back with a bang. It’s such a bold n’ playful look with a modernize twist, but if you’re not careful you can end up looking like you belong in the 80s. Currently I’m kinda crazy about florals, leopard and yes, tie dye pants!

…Since it’s midnight and I can’t drag Mr. Photographer to go outside to take pictures :p, I figured I can use my imagination. Here are 4 prints that I have been lusting after…What are your thoughts on printed pants and how would you style them?
