Readers, I found a lot to love in Diane Von Furstenberg’s colorful and flirty show during NYFW. At first glance, this outfit was sweet but not the stand out in a strong collection…yet my eye keep going back to this lovely, pastel green ensemble. It’s got an Audrey Hepburn meets futuristic, pop star sort of look that’s pretty darn wearable.
And I love all the little details we can steal:
• Sunglasses - these mint green hued glasses may be brand new but they just scream vintage. Find a colorful pair using our helpful Tips for Collectors and build your next outfit around them.
•Tone on tone – the pastel green hue of this outfit may not be for everyone, but building a tone on tone outfit around one fabulous shade is a great way to jump into color – especially for those that are scared to mix it up. I may steal this idea for fall and build a great outfit (tights, skirt, sweater) around one rich shade – it’s color blocking for dummies, perfect.
• I’m also loving the little peep of tulle at the bottom of the semi full skirt – sort of a modern day take on a petticoat. I can’t help but wonder what the wht DIY team could do with an old skirt and a little bit of fabric…
Readers – are you loving this look too?
