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?

    I love the shade and the subtle shine of the skirt. The color is just muted enough to pass as a neutral! I may be a little too chicken to do the tone on tone though, it’s such a fine line between perfect and disaster, haha. DVF, if you want someone to review your skirt I’d be happy to! LOL
