Spring Power Dressing

Spring Power Dressing

    Drama, drama, drama. Big. Sparkle. Disco. Casual. Oversize. Fun. Appropriate.

    Power-dressing. How women can dress to feel confident.

    Spring is full of bright, reminiscent disco motifs — ahem, that Courrèges patent jacket! — the powersuit, and day to night dressing. It is about confidence; self-assurance. What do you wear to feel it? That dress, pair of mules, robe, or charm that serves as your magic wand. When you make a new acquaintance, he or she feels that power emanate from you.

    How beautiful is the detail on the Vivetta suit and on the Etro jean!? These subtle nuances are what make the pieces you. Do not hesitate to be a statement. It is you that makes the look. Empower yourself!

For Restless Sleepers Pant | Courrèges Patent Jacket | Emilio Pucci Silk Blouse | Emilio Pucci Silk Pant

    Just because this palate is more neutral, does not mean that it is blasé. That Carven dress (!!) and the Tory Sport pant (which I have been eyeing since December!); major! Also, if you have not yet noticed, funky, blue striped shirts are in. Dress them down with denim, or up with white linen pants. You will look like you are embarking on your vacanza to Capri.

    Enjoy skirting around in this season's most fabulous frocks. But before you splurge, shop in your (or your mother's or older sister's) cedar closet! You may discover your new staple!

Happy frolicking!

XOXO,
