This season’s fashions are influenced by botanical landscapes
The sight of crocuses sprouting through the thawing soil is a welcome sign of spring. It seems especially timely that this season’s fashions are back in bloom in an array of flirty florals.
Lively, bold, and magnified prints found in sheer and opaque fabrics seem inspired by blossoming gardens. Dresses are feminine yet fun and show up in a fresh crop of choices from long to short, full or fitted; accessories are accentuated with budding details in colors that pop; and cosmetics come in an selection of rose-colored palettes that play up any pretty face.
Here are some top picks.
1) Designed for the décolletage
This Zinnia Crystal necklace will brighten up and liven up any classic white T-shirt or button-down blouse this season. $118. Available at jcrew.com.
2) Brightly hued pair
For stepping out in style this spring, try slipping on these leather-flower high-heeled
ankle-strap sandals from J.Crew. $278. Available at jcrew.com.
3) Eye catching
We love these shades from designer Thomas Lafont who incorporates Liberty of London fabrics into his woman’s Lafont Paris Soho sunglass collection. $399. Available at Dr. George Amatuzzi on Main Street.
4) Garden party
A lady-like cap-sleeve shift in a Lollie black-floral print seems the best-dressed option for a Sunday outing like this one from Stella McCartney. $1,030.
Available at Mitchells in Westport.
5) Looking cheeky
Fashion and beauty go hand in hand, so seek out soft shades of blush to complement your complexion. Shown: ab long-lasting hydrating blush in Tulip, $25. Available at Adam Broderick Salon & Spa in Ridgefield.
6) Talking points
When Rose Quartz was selected as one of Pantone’s two color choices for 2016, it was a portent of something good. For a rich, creamy finish and long-lasting wear, we like this ab lipstick in Dozen Roses, $25. Available at the Adam Broderick Salon & Spa.
