Spring Stripes

One of the most wonderful fashion fantasies in SL is to have a great big hat. Not just any old hat but one that you could wear to the Kentucky Derby or to some equally fabulous spring fete. While the Derby won’t be held until April, it pays to prepare.

Sascha Frangilli will fulfill your fantasy with her beautiful new hats, offered as a match to her beautiful sleek new gown. Varying from her customary textured full gowns, Sascha shows this lean gown with white highlights and an asymmetrical neckline punctuated by a flower with abstract feathers. It’s elegant and minimal.

But the stunner of the outfit is really the hat with its fluted wide brim and translucent striped texture. Tilted at an angle, it frames this beautiful face (courtesy of Tricky Boucher) and keeps the sunlight out of a lady’s eyes as she watches the racetrack. I chose a feminine but sleek hair from Rachel Boram and earrings from Random Calliope. With a sleek minimal simplicity to most of the look, the busyness of the flower and the boldness of the hat stand out and seem in proportion.
