Lush skirts, corsets, bullions and volants – all of these is extremely suitable even at noon summer heat.
One of the most notable attribute of femininity is a print with garden roses, decorating lush evening dresses with their flower buttons. Such roses were used in majestic silhouettes by Oscar de la Renta. Caroline Herrera instead with aid of such prints added some provinciality to her classic slinky dresses.
