Etro has always delighted us with its exclusive prints on dresses, skirts and coats. As many Italian fashion houses, it offers very high quality creations with classic tailoring. But in this case, items are all adorned with the special paisley print which is the signature of the brand. Today I pick this velvet dress from the fall/winter 2010/11 collection. The prints on a noble fabric like velvet donate a sophisticated appeal, while the most fashionable colour of the wintry collection, ochre, is employed on the decorations. Short sleeves make it suitable with a blazer or maybe with a long coat. Just a classy choice for who likes being classy and elegant at all time.

They do fit in, in every occasion and are tremendously gorgeous! The Giuseppe Zanotti design collection has some amazing creations you must check out!
5. Chic evening dress (one-shoulder, floral printed, white)
To combine with the cut-away heels a fresh and delicate dress is indispensable! Go for an one-shouldered dress for the romantic look. Or to make it a little bit more colourful go for the Iceberg one-shouldered dress with colourful butterfly print.
For the fresh and total white look the Christian Dior belted cotton dress is perfect. The white Moschino Cheap & Chic sleeveless bow dress is the romantic respond to the elegant Dior white look! Or make it floral with the beautiful Moschino Cheap & Chic dresses.
A trend to adopt is the bohemian style which of course can be modified after taste…It can easily be made chic and casual or more relaxed with a hippie touch. How ever this season floral prints are very trendy and since they are so gorgeous lets see how to use them!
Maxi dresses are a great way to achieve that chic bohemian look. The Roberto Cavalli s/s collection has a lot of them. Like the vividly multicoloured Roberto Cavalli maxi dress seen on the photo. It gives you the bohemian touch but is still fresh and delicate! For more Cavalli maxi dresses click here.
The Moschino Cheap & Chic collection makes it bohemian with a vintage/hippie touch, se the Ad campaign above. Floral printed dresses in pastel shades made in silk and cotton gives you a soft and feminine look. The squared blazer with green buttons with a pair of stripped jeans, bow clutch and plateau gives you the right vintage look. Very cute feminine Moschino Cheap & chic dresses are as well a great ingredient to achieve the right flower power spirit this spring/summer!
Big sunglasses and colourful tunics and shirts are must haves to catch the relaxed and free look, see the Emilio Pucci s/s collection for insipiration. Emilio Pucci who’s known for his colour is a great inspiration source!
For kaftans and tunics in sheer fabric go for Etro s/s collection 2009, where you can find thousands of floral printed clothing items in warm gold and red colours as well as beach colours such as white and blue!

To make your look complete remember to combine the right shoes! The shoes are more important than you might think but the shoes always gives that necessary final touch which later proves if you made it or not, if your look is a success or not!
Gladiator sandals are of course a great choice… The silver Gucci gladiator sandals gives you a more modern and chic look. Instead the Miu Miu gladiator sandals are very natural and are a great choice!
Experiment with sandals, plateau and big glasses to find your personalized bohemian style! The only thing you need to start is a bit of creative fantasy! Have fun!
There are boundaries, there are limits, and there are people who arrest their walk in front of them. There are also people who desire the undesirable but don’t even dare, their glooming walk reassure their souls.
But there are people who destroy their limits and dominates life, they need to suck it to the core.
And it is to these people that I want to address these stunning images from Etro’s collection, each dress shouting out its unique essence, mixing and experiencing new styles in elegance and joy, an happy island of authentic genius and creativity. Etro dresses the two halves of humanity, men and women, a surreal Heaven of heady inspirational glimpse.
