Fashion Forward: Asian Inspiration
The Far East has inspired some major fashion designers. The new look for spring: Japanese looking kimono tops and dresses .
(WSVN) -- It made a bold statement on the runways...
Michael Kors for Celine...
And Roberto Cavalli -- all inspired by everything Asian for Spring.
Roberto Cavalli says, "I start to think how I would like to see my girlfriend or maybe one girl that I love in which way in which color."
The designer stuff is beautiful but very expensive and if you can't afford it, listen up because I'm about to let you in on a little secret.
At Arden B. you can get all the latest looks minus the designer price tags.
Jennifer Leal of Arden B. says, "Our pieces really try to be very current and we're inspired by a lot of designers, and we can really deliver a very Fashion Forward quality item for a great price."
Fashion's turning Japanese...Chinese... you get the picture.
Take this off-the- shoulder top with a Kimono-inspired sleeve.
It's all about bright colors and bold prints this season.
The Asian inspired tops and dresses.
In all sorts of colors in black, white, in yellow and turquoise, you know really vibrant colors.
Dragons and cherry blossoms bloom all over this sleeveless top with an Asian inspired neckline.
Dress it up with a pair of silky cargo pants.
Or why not try a different take on the little black dress...
This one's my favorite.
At Anika at the Aventura Mall, Kimono style tops are the rage.
Try this one in white with mandarin buttons.
Becky from Anika says, "This season they're very influenced by the Kimono look. That it accents the waist."
Don't waste time and be pretty in pink
Or accent your waistline with some printed silk.
Or a solid color .
Becky says, "It makes their figure look curvy, it accents the waist, it makes them look thinner, and what woman doesn't want to look thinner."
