Now that NYFW is over & I’ve had some time to digest all the fabulous fashion hits from the runways, I’ve compiled my top looks from Spring/ Summer 2012 (in no hierarchical order):
Badgley Mischka showed the ultimate take on femininity with a plunging neckline, fitted, knee-length dress. The jewel-tones are consistent with the Spring/ Summer 2012 trends & the detailing is simply stunning.
Oscar de la Renta is always displaying his show-stopping designs & this strapless gown is no different. I am absolutely floored to know that lace detailing is having a moment and the crop-top he chose to add texture to this look is on the top of my “must have” list.
Carolina Herrera uses a simple lined pattern to create a look that’s anything but simplistic. I love the flirty & ultra-feminine look a belted waist gives, too.
Rebecca Minkoff took “Ready to Wear” fashion and stole the show. Everything about this look is accessible & super chic. Again, the jewel-toned hues are big Big BIG for Spring/ Summer, as well as the lined pattern detail. I love the idea of the menswear-inspired blazer with super feminine details (the color & cut).
Band of Outsiders decided not to follow the bright-color trend for this look, & it’s incredibly refreshing! With all the detailing put into this cut & design, there was no need to use a bright fabric and a nude neutral is a universally flattering hue for any skin tone making this look truly “Ready to Wear”.
