Throw open your closet and let a fresh, lightweight look breeze through—it’s springtime! From spots and stripes to flora and fauna, cotton blouses and silk shirtdresses featuring crisp prints in muted tones and monochrome are making a beautiful statement. Sparkling accessories keep it glam.
Odeeh contrasts big blooms with sharp geometries to gives its short-sleeved shirt some look-at-me style. A stunning crystal floral earring by Andrea Marazzini and a pretty Timex watch embellished with crystallized flowers enhance the theme.
You can’t beat a polka-dot dress for versatile spring-into-summer dressing. Joseph’s cream silk-crêpe Crosby dress is a romantic twist on a classic, boasting dainty gathering at the yoke for subtle volume and a confetti-shower of deep red micro-hearts. Philippe Ferrandis’ dazzling drop earrings and a chunky gold bracelet by A L’Époque make the perfect pairing for all your summer wedding invitations.
A beautifully cut polka-dot blouse has timeless elegance, but try using jewelry to add on-trend highlights. These sweet rings and bracelets by Bohm deploy zingy citrus colors as a playful reflection of Wolfen Germany’s gray silk spots. Stack them as high as you dare!
Michael Kors gives the classic striped silk dress some Op-Art impact with clever cutting. Navy and white is a smart summer combo, while Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier’s dramatic necklace-and-earring suite made with Swarovski Crystal Pearls elevates this look to high-class garden party.
Have some summer fun with Haltbar’s fish print blouse and layers of quirky jewelry. We chose a shimmering necklace by Otazu, the Evil Eye Pendant from Love Pendants, the Queen of the Universe necklace and Stellar Blessings bracelet by My Saint Hero, plus Shelly Brown’s Lacey earrings. A black jersey midi skirt by Valentino from matchesfashion.com keeps the look grounded.
