FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Re-live the Fashionably Late 70s/Early 80s with Grey Ant. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
Summary: High waisted tapering jeans & a cascade of crimped hair - sprouting from a single ponytail worn high & to one side - makes a fashionista want to don her dancing shoes and head for the disco on high. The muted black, grey, denim & cream palatte was enlivened with festive touches of antique gold metallic & oodles of ruffles, perfect for when you want to feel snazzy without being overly dressed to the nines. Interestingly, unlike many other collections, there was nary a print to be found here. The widelegged, slouchy trousers - popping up on runway after runway - were easy breezy chic, as was the drapey pale gray shirtdress with a white belt (white for fall - why not?). And pairing a cute & girlie pale gray ruffled mini with thick, nerd-chic glasses was a fun touch.
