Bracelets Up To There
Wear two, three, or a dozen at a time. Eclectic mixes of bold arm candy in lucite, wood or futuristic metal are one of spring’s strongest trends. These mesh beauties come in a variety of tones and look like they cost a million bucks instead of only $38. Wear them on their own or mix them with your very own favorites for a look that’s completely you.
Shorts, Shorts And More Shorts
Shorts ruled spring’s runways this season. Wear yours suited or mix and match neutrals like ivory and khaki with the new saturated pastels or bright, color-drenched hues. The look as interpreted at Sandro features simple, clean lines and natural fabrics. Kicky, young shorts in a grab bag of colors ranging from berry red to denim are hidden in plain sight at 4PlayBk. Credit cards maxed out? A multitude of styles from slouchy to crisp won’t break the bank at around $60. This trendy-young store specializes in street-wear inspired looks and is populated by those in-the-know. Make haste to 360 7th Ave. in Brooklyn before they sell out.
Delicate, feminine doily lace turned up in multiple collections for spring. Interpretations ranged from sophisticated sexiness at Oscar de la Renta to preciously edgy at Preen. With bared shoulders and belted waist, this doily lace dress at Two Lovers captures the look for a steal at $68, and is the very essence of sweet, sexy femininity.
Patterns with Pow
Want to nab spring’s bold, bright go-to prints but can’t head-to-toe it? Let your luggage and handbags do the talking. Romero Britto’s astonishing, lightweight carry-ons for Heys USA can be found at both add accessories locations in downtown NYC. Love those nearly-neon hues, but not a print person? Or maybe you just don’t travel enough to need luggage. Rock the look in the form of a handbag, instead. Wink’s 11″ carry-on Cambridge Satchel, in your choice of fluorescent green, orange, yellow or pink is a great alternative to the look and to the price. Nab the look for less at one of Wink’s three locations.
From lingerie to shoes, polka dots will be spotted on New York’s most fashionable women this spring. Simultaneously trendy and timeless, the look can take on the playful sexiness of Brigitte Bardot or the iconic classiness of Jackie O. The trend, as interpreted by modaspia and found at both Diana Kane locations, is soft and fluid on the body. Simply a lovely dress to help you herald in the new season.
