2nd Take Review – Fashion News -Spring Trends 2015

A 2nd Take Review

2nd Take Review- Fashion  News

This Past Week at 2nd Take – We take a 2nd look.

We started our week inspired by Davis Thoreau, who said:

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you have imagined.”

During this past week everything was about florals and spring bliss at 2nd Take

The winter blues is over and the 2nd Take team has gathered all the latest fashion statements for you this spring. Observing our beautiful natural environment here in the Cape, our first thoughts were about spring blossoms. We took this natural inspiration and looked into floral themes trending this 2015 spring season. We looked at celebrities wearing the theme and flower power accessories.

Floral Fashion themes and trends have been around for some time, here is some more insight: 

It’s no secret that ladies love flowers, and floral printed fabrics have been a fashionable item for hundreds of years.

It makes sense to use flowers to decorate our second-hand clothes, they are pretty, they are symbolic of femininity, and they show the beauty of the natural world.

Did know that the floral print originates from the Far East?

Throughout history, traders brought fabrics with ornate floral designs to Europe where they sold for very high prices. Wearing such fabrics, meant showing off your wealth! Over time European manufacturers began to copy these fabrics to suit European tastes at more affordable prices.

We also took a look at what was going on, on social media for the past week, with celebrity inspired looks, who wore it best decisions to be made and our various fashion and accessory posts.
