My New York Favourite Pieces…
Now that the Spring/Summer Collections have been shown, I have chosen my favourite 12 looks from the New York!
From my choices below, it appears that I will be wearing lots of yellow and orange (citrus colours) and gorgeous white! I adore the yellow shift dress by Michael Kors and the bell skirt shape by Victoria Beckham. Both dresses are such flattering shapes, which are oh-so-chic, feminine and fun.
The high waisted trousers and white bow blouse by Jason Wu makes a streamlined, signature statement. Tory Burch’s preppy upper-east side aesthetic in vibrant orange is stunning. I adore the Proenza Schoulder’s collection – fresh yet undeniably cool with a fresh take on youthful ladylike elegance. The detailing at Rodarte was simply incredible and I loved their distinct shapes and proportions.
Top 12 New York Spring/Summer 2011 Looks:
Overall I think my choices, coincide with what I believe my style primarily is: colourful, preppy and classic.
