SPRING FASHION……..

After spending the winter bundled up in boots and parkas, the refreshing colors and textures of spring afford as much delight as the warm breezes by which they are accompanied. While the runways were awash in an abundance of trends, luxe pieces that feel great against the skin are the hallmarks of spring style and easily transition from day to night, beach to city.

Spring fashion is best epitomized by the casual elegance of the Hamptons, where chic style meets a relaxed environment. Natural fibers like cotton, linen, and silk feel divine and drape beautifully while classic clothing styles are easy to personalize with unexpected twists, allowing an outfit to feel both fresh and timeless. Nautical style is an enduring look that works at any age and is ideal for the chic yet breezy atmosphere of a destination like the Hamptons.

Daytime fashion for spring is defined by ease and lightness. Emerging from the cocoon of winter allows for vivid colors and simple shapes to take center stage. Rolled khakis and a striped teeare the perfect daytime partners; these pieces can be worn in any color, cut, and material and provide both ease of movement and a sense of refinement. Blue-tinged denim paired with a white blouse is a simple way to take part in the color blocking trend while still retaining a classic, nautical style; throw on a relaxed blazer for a bit of polish. Patent leather boat shoes are the ultimate finishing touch for a dose of warm weather fun.

While daytime fashion is about ease and relaxation, enchanting spring evenings are the perfect time to don clothing that exudes chic sophistication. The little white dress has become a mainstay of the wardrobe, and an evening dinner is its time to shine. Paired with accessories like a statement necklace or a colorful clutch, this breathtakingly simple piece can adopt a variety of personas. A long dress in striped silk, a pastel short suit, or a lace pencil skirt paired with a silky pajama top are other excellent options for evening dinners.

#5 Outfit: Fun party dress

While the trend of florals for spring is certainly not shocking, the riotous explosion of color and print that designers like Mary Katranzou have embraced is fresh and invigorating. A bold floral print brings life and energy to a girls’ night out or cocktails with friends. If the unusual shapes or mixed prints of these unique pieces seems too daring, tone down the look with darker shades like those seen at Burberry Prorsum or stick to one floral piece at a time, pairing it with neutral separates. And for a night out with the girls? Always, always wear heels.
