Spring's Ruffled Entrance Ft Yhordanka

PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALEXANDER WONG & JON SOUTH 

THE VIBE: Spring/summer 2017's fashion trends have stylists, buyers, editors -and anyone else who is interested- super-duper, spin-around-your-closet excited. Why? Well, it's an inherently upbeat season. From the many no-holds-barred interpretations on the 1980s (think lamé, jumbo frills, shoulders, ruffles, bling and legs) to the most saturated color palette we've seen in a decade (fuschia, scarlet, heliotrope, hazmat, more fuschia!), joy is oozing from every stitch and every seam. Even pleats and ruffles—those two trusty pillars of summer"16 print lineup—are back with more bite, more verve and more tempting iterations to make you think again and look twice.

THE BELLE: Look as Yhordanka Akwanza (Co-Founder & COO of Eyeland Eyewear and Instagram Stylista) take on spring/summer styles exclusively for Kingston Belle with razor sharp moves, an ode to her unique Cuban heritage. Find her on Instagram: @FlorKubana.Style

THE FASHION: Inspired undoubtedly by Gucci opening the doors to an everyday kind of eccentricity, the dress celebrates an old timey silhouette with on trend ruffles and a modern color scheme. Staying true to the trends of today-tomorrow, Yhordy sports a spherical rhinestoned cross-bag with dangling leather fringes in a deep sea-green. In true latina flare, the look closes with a woven lady heel with satin fuschia accents.
