Spring is on its way and Richmond Hill is serving up a full menu of style, fashion and beauty trends for this season so everyone can look spectacular and feel fabulous as Coastal Georgia goes into full bloom.
“This year is all about skirts – whether you like to wear them short or long, fitted or flared, plain or patterned” said Carol Batastini, owner of Stella Rose Clothing & More Boutique at 11254 Ford Ave. in Richmond Hill. “Complete the look with a simple cotton top or cropped sweater worn with a long, handkerchief bottom T-shirt.
Of course, skirts and the beginning of spring time in Coastal Georgia mean exposing your legs and feet to the world. Catherine Garrido, known as Cat to her clients, is the owner of the Milan Day Spa at Villages on the Hill, 3766 Hwy. 17 in Richmond Hill. She recommends a signature pedicure to buff off dry and dead skin, push back cuticles and show off a flattering shade of nail polish.
“The spring 2011 nail polish color trends are pastels, metallic grays and sleek nudes,” Garrido said. “Instead of going sheer with your nail polish, this year’s pastels are rich and creamy shades of smooth purples, bright blues and peachy pinks. The Opi Katy Perry collection and the Opi Texas collection are full of great choices.”
Kylie Phillips from Stella Rose said “with this season’s newest trend from Palm Beach, an Italian leather Juno Girl sandal with fun detachable ornaments, making sure your feet look their best is essential.”
But what should the ladies who love to wear pants do this spring?
“The trend is to wear stylish, decorative tunics over leggings and skinny jeans,” Batastini said. “And in our climate, it is worth knowing that premium denim is changing as new lighter fabric allows the denim to hold its shape better.”
“Many of us worry about getting into jeans or leggings after the winter and holiday indulgences,” Garrido said. “We offer a slimming body treatment, which helps you to lose inches of excess fluid, retained by all of us, tighten your skin and detoxify your whole system. The technology behind this revolutionary treatment works by releasing harmful toxins from the body’s tissues which create the toning and silhouette sculpting effect.”
