One of the best aspects of my job as New Jersey Monthly's style editor is keeping up with the latest fashion must-haves. Here's a preview of top picks from Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue...
As you're shopping post-holiday sales and checking out all the new merchandise that's arriving daily, keep in mind these fabulous trends for resort wear and springtime fun.
Last year I had the pleasure of interviewing Neiman Marcus's global fashion director, Ken Downing. Hard to believe that six months have passed since we discussed fall/winter must-haves. Ken just released his trend list for warm-weather months, and here it is:
- Cool Blues
- Orange: The New Neutral
- Relaxed Chic
- Print Mania
- Amazing Lace
- Warm-Weather Leather
- High-Voltage Handbags
- Gladiator Sandals
- Bold Eyes and Nude Lips
- Face-Framing Jewelry
These fresh looks already have started rolling into all 42 stores and NeimanMarcus.com.
Walk into Saks Fifth Avenue or visit saks.com and you'll instantly notice lots of B&W patterns, and well as monochromatic white looks. Saks is also fond of splashy prints and very simple, elegant jewelry with architectural lines.
Let's break it all down into a quick shopping list...
Freshen your wardrobe with black, white, orange, blue and some fun, colorful prints. Add a dollop of leather and lace, dramatic jewelry with clean lines and some cute gladiator sandals, and you're ready for springtime fun!
Now all we need is a little sunshine...
