Spring Fashion Feature: 8 Gorgeous Outfits You Will Love Right Now
As winter’s deep freeze begins to thaw, so does our affection for its trappings: puffy marshmallow coats, thick knits, snow-stomping boots. Happily, this season brings with it lighter offerings and a fresh outlook on style. Here, the very best of spring’s fashion crop, and the new ways to wear it all.
Swap sequins and frills for splashier adornments, like the supersized gems that stud this simple white shift.
Winter’s shiny-sleek leather takes a backseat to chunky, funky fringe.
Forget everything you know about mixing separates. Play with lengths—a tunic over a midi skirt!—for a slinky, serpentine silhouette.
It’s sharp, crisp, architectural, and anything but sweet. Forgo jewelry to let the dress shine.
Alexander McQueen dress, $1,975 at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Ditch the cocktail dress for a sleek jumpsuit. Add a long pendant — spring’s best necklace — for a surprisingly sexy, devil-may-care look.
Rick Owens jumpsuit, $1,475, and Balenciaga shoes, $695, both at Joan Shepp. Marlyn Schiff cuff, $44 at Skirt. Marmol Radziner necklace, $220 at Knit Wit, Rittenhouse. A Peace Treaty earring, $98 at Third Street Habit, Old City.
Bright, Lilly Pulitzer-like flowers are expected. A moodier bloom in a buttoned-up shape is far more sophisticated. Heavy metal details (a giant zipper, perhaps?) make it cool.
While previous seasons nodded to mod, it’s now time to embrace the decade’s dreamy bohemia with muted colors, whisper-thin fabrics and offbeat print pairings. Keep it modern by investing in the jewelry trend of the season: one major shoulder-grazing earring.
It’s voluminous, kimono-esque, and a fashion-forward alternative to the LBD. Ground the sculptural draping with chunky shoes (farewell, pin-thin stilettos!) for a winning look.
