Maxed out

More from Stockholm’s fashion week!  One trend I’m stuck on, and thankfully so are the designers, is the maxi dress (and skirt).  Four designers have sent this look, for both day and night, down their runways so far and I couldn’t be happier.

Stockholm or Bust

As the models parade down the runways in the newest Swedish designs for S/S 09 (these seasons really fly by before you know it, don’t you think?) a lot of quirk and spirt have come with them. 

I love these jeans from Cheap Monday — they are so playful,  and personally, I am especially fond of the all white get up to the right.

My favorite look from Minimarket is the shorts suit, followed closely by the ladybug sweater.

Tiger of Sweden stood out to me for the way they played with proportions and for how the pieces they put together were unconventional pairs that fit so comfortably together.  

What Made Carin Wester’s basically neutral color palette so exciting was her mixing of silhouettes and fabrics to create simple yet dramatic pieces and ensembles.
