The upcoming months are all about retro touches and uber versatile outfit ideas in Karen Walker's new fall 2012 collection titled Sea Monsters. Check out the frighteningly cute ensembles envisioned.
The new season is as diverse as it gets. Equestrian influences,
military touches, versatile and dramatic vibes, luxury, all come in
handy when it comes to defining some of the leading creative
perspectives of the season. However, it's not always the
immediately visible world that can deliver the most inspiration.
Thinking outside of the box can prove just as interesting
especially since we've seen quite some interesting results when
designers have used literary references in their collection.
One such example is Karen Walker's Sea Monsters fall 2012 collection which draws inspiration from Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea novel. The result is a variety of uber loveable retro influences translated into simple and versatile pieces that manage to make a statement without necessarily screaming rainy season attire. Mod, with fairly distinguishable '60s elements and a different set of prints from what the season has thrown at so far, the new looks are as covetable as it gets.
There's no reason to give up feminine vibes if you feel like
they best define you. With a variety of fabulous skirts and
dresses, the label can meet your new season needs and help you
express yourself in your own way, whether you prefer to stay on the
safe side and rock monochrome pieces or you like to take a little
risk and mix fab prints in one single outfit. A few subtle vintage
vibes will just add character to your looks and a fun allure at the
Keeping things as versatile as possible while still having fun with pattern and color is especially simple with the right accessories. Simple clutches or fun sunglasses can do the trick but you can also turn to textural touches if you prefer an even more minimalist approach. Either way, the options to stay fabulous and creative this season are surprisingly varied and interesting once you put your personal touch into them.
