Focus: Burda Style Issue 04/2021: Natural Green

Last year, the trendy color of spring was bright and flashy. This year, the shade on all the runways is a harmonious palette of green to bring us back to nature and create some very convincing looks.


The Green Light

Feu vert


The trousers to the left fit like a glove thanks to their small darts and crisp front creases that perfectly hug the legs. Small slits at the bottom draw attention to appealing ankles and favorite footwear. Looking for an easy summer dress? The model to the right is not only simple to sew, but it is also easy to wear thanks to its shaped quarter-length sleeves and relaxed fit. A matching sash can be tied around the waist if you would like to outline your figure and highlight your best assets.


Green Goddess

Diablesse verte


Nothing is better than a well-fitting blazer, especially if it comes with all the exquisite details that make this model so unique. Polished lapels, finely intricate pocket flaps, and the most outstanding feature of bands at the sleeve ends to be tied into bows. Nature reins and greenery blossoms with this fresh and flattering hippie-style model to the right. The maxi dress features a skirt with three tiers and its pretty gathered sleeves that radiate happiness and light. Tiny buttons also decorate the neckline for a particularly dainty detail.


Green Thumb

La main verte


Sassy and sweet, this semi-transparent deep V-neck blouse to the left is a sight to behold. This model with its romantic gathers perfectly blends a fierce and delicate style for a look that embodies the pristine aspects of nature. The graceful top to the right is as light as a feather and features an elegant V-neck and rolled-up sleeves for a multifaceted look. For a modest, sporty flair, wear it over a long-sleeved top or slip it over your bikini for a sexy style. You can even pair it with a nude-colored camisole for an air that is the essence of sophistication.


The Rub of the Green

Mise au vert


For those who argue pleated skirts as a bit too “old school” will perhaps think twice with this incredibly chic model that comes with a cool print and extra-deep pleats that give it a luxurious flair. The colorful pattern and long shawl collar of this top are reminiscent of famous Hawaiian shirts that are back in fashion and perfect for warm weather! Sew it up in no time!


Going Green

Volée de bois vert


A parka does not always have to be made from gabardine or a functional textile. This model in jacquard with fringe is the perfect mixture of elegance and extravagance. Pretty details such as the band collar, little pleats, and pockets sewn into the horizontal seams have us swooning. This tunic to the right shows off the fashion trend of the year: batik! Beginners will have no trouble sewing up this stylish piece thanks to the easy bateau neckline, drop shoulders, and simple gathers at the waist.
