I caught up with the gorgeous editor-in-chief, Shannon Wylie of Souq Fashion, one of my favorite online style haunts, for her take on spring summer’s absolute must haves. Here’s a quick snippet from our chat:
FY: What are your top five trends for Spring Summer 2013?
1) Leather trimmings- Not necessarily all leather, but leather details are all the rage!
2)Tutus- Very SATC and very in
3)Pastels, ofcourse, especially sky blue and mint
4)Metallic- whether its shoes, belts or accessories, heavy metal is in!
5)Burgundy – this lovely shade complements everyone- simply gorgeous
FY: What is Souq Fashion’s latest offering for the upcoming season? What should the discerning fashion enthusiasts expect from Souq Fashion in 2013?
You should look forward to brand new online magazine! Check out the exciting fashion features and spreads interviews and a lot more, coming soon.
FY: What makes Souq Fashion stand out from other online fashion retailers in the Middle East?
We have an amazing mix of fashion, that’s very unique- We have ready to wear, high fashion, celebrity brands and even a prominent Arabic selection to suit every budget and taste. This mix is something we are proud to offer and you won’t be able to find this variety and price range anywhere online for the Middle East.
FY: What is your ultimate style advice for readers of Fashionably Yours?
Well, keep an eye out for trends of the season, but pick and choose carefully and make it work for you. For example, not everyone could carry off studs because its too edgy for some people’s personalities. However, smaller studs on accessories and more reserved stud details could be carried off in style by everyone!
Pick colors that suit you- and are flattering to your skin tone. Also, remember not to toe the line always, but do things differently. Fashion is all about being yourself, being quirky and just having fun!
Thank you Shannon, for the amazing advice. I, for one, am on my way to getting that tutu skirt already!
