Getting a handle on Spring’s lead fashion stories is simple enough. But tracking down the individual pieces that capture the mood of the season without screaming”new trend!”(we’re trying to be sophisticated and nonchalant here) requires a higher level of study. And finding the ones that flatter and function, then working them into our daily wardrobe groove -now that, if I may say, is an art form. Not to worry, I’ve done the legwork so you don’t have to. Voilá, your spring shopping starts here.
The secret to the Season? These must- have items.
THE WHITE BLOUSE, this classic skews romantic, thanks to eyelet details and billowy sleeves.
THE GLADIATOR, it’s official. The Hercules sandal is the sandal of the season. Choose an option that’s tricked out with gold embellishment, a bold hue or the tiniest of heels.
THE A-LINE SKIRT. Cut from rich suedes and accented with polished buttons, the skirt du jour works well with a woven belt for a cinched-in waist. Accent your shape in this rich, figure-flattering separate. Wear it with a silk blouse or a cashmere sweater for day and a lacy white top at night for a look that’s both urban and rustic.
THE PRINTED DRESS. Colorful and exotic , the bohemian dress is by far the season’s most eye-catching piece. You’ll roam free in wanderlust-y prints and breezy, calf-grazing silhouettes.
THE WOODEN PLATFORMS. Whether u opt for a sandal or a closed-toe version, the clog platform takes your skirt to the next level. Go for nude or brown
THE BUCKET BAG. The new carryall is colorful, roomy, and structured.
THE FLARE. The 70’s staple is here to stay. Choose a crisp pair and accent it with pops of print, a ladylike heel and clutch, and dangly earrings.
THE BOY BLAZER. Update the classic blazer by rethinking cut and proportion. The newest versions are chicly shrunken.
THE DENIM PANT. Time to say goodbye to the skinny jean- it’s fuller counterpart is what’s exciting for spring. The leg-elongating style is versatile for day or night, especially with the help of a chain-strap bag and a stack-heeled boot. Sleek and straight legged, it is significantly more dressed up.
