Explore another side of the seventies with the fabulous ensembles put together by the Alberta Ferretti brand in the Resort 2013 collection and get ready to fill your next year must have list.

After the rather dramatic black ensembles that dominated the fall 2012 show, it seems that the Alberta Ferretti label has decided to incorporate a little more optimism into its latest designs. To do so, the label used one of the most memorable style influences of the glorious seventies: tie-dye motifs. With seductive touches and a relaxed attitude, the label brings a new side of femininity in each design and creates several drool-worthy ensembles that are sure to fly off the shelves.

Despite the fact that the label is bringing back the tie-dye motif, the looks are nothing like what they were when they first emerged. This time, they are a lot more toned down and less conspicuous and a single tone is used to highlight the theme. The result is a much classier set of options that are built with the contemporary silhouette in mind. In addition, the fact that no crazy color combos were used at once makes the entire trend a lot more approachable and more likely to be adopted.

Pastels blend with strong tones and abstract patterns in a delightful symphony of fashion perspectives and multiple must-have list candidates. From fitted dress styles to flowy, airy maxis, the label covers a multitude of styles suitable for various circumstances. Still, the casual chic alternatives are the ones that ultimately dominate. Simple and modern combos are the easiest way to create interest in the new season according to the high-end label. And, judging by the almost magnetic appeal of the pieces, we cannot help but share similar feelings.

Accessorizing is extremely important for creating that polished vibe that most of us crave. The label keeps things classy and simple using fabulous colorful and practical handbags and completing the look with simple head-turning high heel sandals. The art of looking fabulous without turning to complex style principles was proven once again with excellent ensembles that help reveal our femininity and that manage to dazzle even at a very superficial glance.
