depend on simplicity.” - Plato
This quote certainly does not relate to all fashion in today's breaking beyond the seams fashion world, however it is something we should all occasionally take time to remember, especially when trying to make an understated and simplistically glamorous look.
Nothing is more purely charming and beautiful to me than crisp whites, loosely structured pastel silks, and the iconic L.B.D. in the form of a sheath. What these looks have in common is not their designer or price range, but the simplistic nature behind each garment that ease the eye and drape flawlessly on a figure.
Structure is still apparent in simplistically, but is not overbearing as in Dior Haute Couture's corsetted full gowns, nor is it fussy as in Marchesa's jumpsuits. Smoothness adds to a put together nature, and solid fabric and draping is key.
