My Top Spring Looks for Her

Our atypical warm winter day has me pining for spring frocks and shoes. I see bursts of tangerine (the "It" color for the season), abstract prints, peep-toe espadrilles and a dose of the whimsical. While my style wanes from the modern bohemian to vintage-inspired (well, anything vintage circa 1950s), I am adamant about fit - just ask my clients! My top spring picks offer the best of both worlds: strong silhouettes that support an hourglass figure and visual interest. The latter can be honed or exaggerated depending on your personality and lifestyle.

I challenge you to embrace bold colors if you tend to favor a neutral palette of creams, grays and white. For the edgy rocker, soften your look for a floral print (pair with a cropped moto jacket to reinforce your point of view). Either way, spring transitions us from months of drab to bright awakenings. See you at the garden party!
