Regardless of Phil the grotesque groundhog – spring will be here before we know it. And the fashions on the horizon are sheer sensations!
You can go bold with the stars and stripes or tone it down a bit but let’s try to remember what it stands for and wear it proudly. Aim for cheerful and spirited- who says you shouldn’t wear your heart on your sleeve? Check out what Zero + Maria Cornejo and Philip Lim have to offer in their newest collections.
Only bright sun ahead so we’ll be right in tune with the newest hues out there. Ever think you’d see neon in the fashion light again? But it’s certainly there. Check out this sunlit dress by Carolina Herrera and the lines of this strapless, green number by Sachin&Babi. I just love the look and you just know you can make it look great.
And you know what they say about always the chance of spring rain, so be prepared and be right in step with this throwback to the 90s—the windbreaker. The nylon jacket is THE hottest staple this spring. I’m going with this bright blue version from Calvin Klein – but you can spice it up a bit and go with Oscar de La Renta, in a hot pink shorter version.
And just when we thought we couldn’t get enough of jeans – they’re even bigger than ever. There’s simply no such thing as dressing down anymore so get that thought out of your mind and your spring vocabulary and move it right along from day to night and back again. And the bigger the bling – the better – the bright of Solace London and Brandon Maxwell really do it for me.
And it’s all about showing some skin! No sin in that – sheer is here in in a big way! Revealing fabrics are it – they’re sophisticated and lots of fun! I just love this look by Jason Wu.
Somewhere over the rainbow is your new reality for Spring 2018…or could it be the pot at the end of the rainbow you’re seeking? As always, I’ve got you covered with this Mary Kantrantzou sweater at matchesfashion.com. Simple and understated but still very much RAINBOW! You can also try for that pot of gold as in this dazzling gold lame skirt paired with Alexa Chung’s bold lured striped Gucci sweater.
Lots of new things to consider as we head toward warmer temps, so you’d best start now to plan how you will stun come spring! Nothing to lose and everything to gain as you break away from your tried and true and head for uncharted territory. Take me with you!!
