The Style Report: Life in Technicolor
'Tis the season of fluorescent brights
Karla Colletto Lace Suit available at Tahiti Street
For the last couple of weeks, I have been on closet duty. Working with my clients to change over attire from winter to spring and summer. It is always my preference to keep ONLY the clothes of the present season in your bedroom or dressing room closet*.
Are you mad for Missoni? Pink and green with envy for Lilly? Or do you covet the patterns of Pucci? Everywhere you look you can’t help but see this season's intense colors infused into everything from clothing to accessories and even home decor.
Although "The Shades of Grey" is hot, hot, hot... please leave that to the book and pump up your wardrobe with some serious color. Wake up your palette with some variety try abstract designs, ikat, hombre, floral or nautical stripes. While digging through my own closet, I came upon my first vintage pair of Pucci capri pants (fuchsia and white). And, they still fit!
Listen kittens, why do you think that these designers mentioned above stand the test of time and are wanted by all of you savvy fashion conscious gals? These designers are coveted by my clients. When I was shopping with a client last week, she pulled me aside and pointed to the rack of Missoni, the request was "Oh Lynn...I would love one of their dresses".
Missoni is known for its woven abstract colored knits if you are not familiar with this designer. Even Pulitzer prints are no longer geared just for prep. They are sought after because of their classic style. On a personal note, vintage Pucci is my thing. Be it tops, pants, skirts, or dresses... wait... I forgot to add handbags, sandals and belts too!
Fear of the bold and beautiful? A summer white dress could be worn with a fantabulous red or orange sandal to let everyone know that you're game.
Tall, Petite, size 2 on up.. .Get with the program and get noticed in your day-glo jeans, little red dress or turquoise and lime color-blocked shoes.
Look good and conquer the world!
