Another fashionista that opts for a transitional spring look and gets a marvelous result. Stephanie LaCava, fashion writer and frequent contributor to Vogue and The New York Times; wears a furry jacket on top a colorful spring outfit, and as if that wasn't already cool, she went for bright orange socks with high-heel sandals... genius!
Hilary Rhoda wore this Chloé ensemble at Chloé's private cocktail reception to benefit New Yorkers for Children.
I love how she managed to wear shorts and a fur jacket in the same outfit; obviously making a statement about entering a new season. This is a fabulous example of a transitional spring look, while it's still a bit chilly in the evenings, the fur jacket became the perfect match to those shorts.
Floppy hats were all over the runway during spring/summer season shows, no doubt influence of the huge 70’s trend that is already taking place and rocking the streets everywhere.
A hat is a great accessory to include in your outfits, whether it’s hot or cold outside, it will protect you from the sun and/or keep you warm in winter. And it’s not just about the functionality; a hat can be used as an ornament, a social status symbol or a glamour touch into your personality.
Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, Faye Dunaway, Julie Christy, Ava Gardner and Bianca Jagger are some of the fashion icons that have turned the floppy hat into a timeless symbol of style. Get inspired by the looks of the 50s, 60s and 70s; who better than Eddie Sedgwick to demonstrate how glamorous floppy hats are.
