Spring wedding and party-goers: Select your favorite from the season’s retro-inspired silhouettes in a rainbow of the most palatable pastels; accessorize to taste.
Runways last fall predicted a resounding theme for the months to come; paler hues with a self-aware, unabashed girlishness walked by the dozens. Spring maids’ and party dresses echo this sentiment, bringing a true, if rather sweet, breath of fresh air to our overall assortment. Like the palette of favorite French Impressionist painters, sweet-shop colors are desaturated into cool, icy pastels. Classic silhouettes and crisp, contemporary details like accordion-pleated skirts, trapunto pockets, and removable halter straps provide the contrasting edge that make these could-be saccharine hues fit for the modern lady.
