Vibrant prints, metallic accents, delicate pastels and fresh slogans imprinted on slick t-shirts and cool sweatshirts alike: the Marie-Claire Belgium editorial photographed by Hicham Riad encapsulates the best of spring 2014′s fashion trends, as impeccably styled by Christine Van Laer.
And while we’re supposed to be aiming our entire attention to the gorgeous selection of garments, one can’t escape Sophie Vlaming’s hypnotizing doll-eyes that easily, not when they come framed by gorgeous bold brows and by an ingenious take on graphic eye makeup, talking about a resplendent attitude.
That same attitude that ads depth to the whole concept of fashionable contrast, colliding the ultra-feminine with the sporty and the edgy, just as a touch of soft lace and a hint of sheerness come topped off by a super-cool floral cap. Sequins paired with bomber jackets, ruffles styled with dainty pleats, and column gowns accented with soft waves and natural make-up, both envisioned by Margot van Essen, further complement the essence of what is this season’s stylish take on contradiction.
