Embracing Oriental Style with Max Fashion

Hello Chicas,

Spring has finally arrived after months of dedication to velvet dresses and teddy jackets and with the new fashion season comes a fresh batch of trends to get our heads around. The things that I get most excited about the changing of the seasons are fresh colors, new prints and updated clothes. To revamp my wardrobe, I recently browsed through the newly launched Spring collection from Max Fashion and was elated seeing so many wonderful styles. Their Spring collection 2018 revolves around four themes, Work, Play, Fun and Travel. I personally love their travel themed collection, which is mostly dominated with Oriental designs, a perfect infusion of Eastern and Western fashion sensibilitiesI have created two looks for you'll featuring the collection from the travel section from Max Fashion.

Oriental inspired clothing has been weaving stories of opulence and exoticism across the runways. Oriental clothing is just not about mandarin gowns; there's much more to the trend from exotic prints and embroidery to an air of androgynous cool. I'm glad that Max Fashion is bringing back Oriental fashion with its Spring 2018 collection. From satin dresses to structured tops, the take is ornate, colorful, floral and absolutely gorgeous. Vibrant colors like golden and red are the major protagonists in this style. 

Look 1

For the first look, I opted for a red satin floral robe. Last season’s sleepwear-as-daywear phenomenon focused mostly on tops, pants and slip dresses. This season the trend has made a progression into kimono-style robes. The fluid and ethereal fabric makes for a perfect travel friendly look. I have layered the robe over a black shift dress to allow easy movement while travelling. The robe can also be worn with a slogan tee and pair of cropped silk pants or shorts. I have completed the look with a pair of sleek black heels and silver loops. I channeled my inner Eastern diva by pulling my hair back into a top bun.

Look 2

For the second look, I chose a white blouse which has a Japanese female motif on it. The extravagant ruffle sleeves and the subtle floral print on it had me totally swooning over the blouse. I have paired the same over a dark floral pencil skirt. The skirt has a subtle faded floral print, which complimented the structured blouse very well. I have completed the look by adding a pair of colorful tassel earrings and grey mules. Also, for this look I have curled my hair and tied it in a low side bun.
