Spring is here. In New York, the weather is beautiful. The skies are blue and things are looking up. Restaurants, movie theaters, and more are opening at reduced capacity, but they are open. Vaccines are making it into arms all over the country. We will be going out, and now is the time to think of what you will want to be wearing this spring and summer. I am loving the color blue, and the optimism it brings. If you want to add just a few pieces to your look why not choose the spring blues to sing for? Blue prints and patterns to denim and tie dyes. Whether you want something casual, or something a little bit more dressed up, Spring blues to sing for are the way to go. Why not come on a tour of some of the stores in the city. Let’s explore the new blues.
Sleeves can make a look this season. The Loewe dress is a case in point. The sleeves are printed in a small pattern, and then pleated, and spliced into the body of the dress. As it is a shirtdress, the sleeves make the statement.
Zimmerman loves blue prints too. The sleeves here are slightly smaller, narrow on top, with a fuller cuff. The tropical print will put you in the mood for spring.
A turquoise based toile print in a wraped dress is another was to sport spring blues to sing for.
Sir, The Label offers a novel way to wear a sheer blue print. The long floral print chiffon dress comes with a printed under-dress that acts as a slip. So there is no need for one to be added.
A bold shape in a bold print also makes a statement in blue.
Or let single roses sweep you away. This softly shaped midi dress has a defined waist and puffed sleeves. It gentlry makes a statement,
Staud uses ombred blue checks to creat another lovely mini-dress that is bold yet simple. The cinched waist is very flattering.
A patterned sweater in blue looks great too. Wrap it over jeans, white or blue. Or maybe over a blue slip dress?
Tie-dye is everywhere this season. This dress in navy looks super. The fit and flare shape, and the varieted tie dye/ikat print on point.
Life is still super casual these days.These jackets in a tie dyed denim look extremely new. Pair them with denim or a small floral prints. Mix it all up.
It has been a while since head to toe denim looked new. But this look sort of makes one look again. It’s the layers that work. The navy splothces on the white tee, tied back to the navy coat as a starter, with mdeium denim in between. Go for it.
Stella McCartney patches her denim together. The safari jacket is especially new. Try it over her scribble print.
Sacai does patched denim as well. But this look is a little more off centered. The wide pants, another new trend, work with the boxy jacket.
The Kooples patch there denim into an oversized shirt jacket. Worn over a mini-skirt or cut-offs it looks fresh.
Givenchy is certainly into distressed denim this season. As well as sweats. Not sure if Audrey would have worn these, but you never know.
Ganni takes on denim too. The dark coat with the important collar sings over the blue print denim pants.
The blue sweater over the blue jeans is a good look. It is interesting that stores are finally starting to keep things wear now. It’s too cold to wear summer clothes in April. The sweater will works for beach nights later on, and the pearl embellished jeans work year round.
Speaking of sweaters, Rag and Bone’s blue sweater will brighten up any look. And the classic French sailor sweaters are a clean look for spring. Stripes are always a good look.
Lafayette 148 also loves blue. A baby blue sweater or a pale blue smocked top both look good.
Casual is more than just denim. This oversized blue shirt with a cropped tan jacket play with proportions to envelope you with a new and fabulous look.
Another perfect sporty look for spring is a full sleeveless shirt. Nili Lotan cuts this one with exagerated armhole and shirring details at the yoke in a pale blue stripe. You can wotk it with the pale blue tie-dye pants behind it.
Collectiva adds yoke details to a skirt and top set. The made by hand approach is appealing.
Miu Miu plays with tiny checks in another two piece set. The ruffles at the centerfront are edged in navy lace. The tiny lace bow at the neck is a very Miuccia Prada touch.
Dior love blues too. The off-navy and navy colors are worked in stripes, florals, and solids. They all can mix and match with ease.
A chic navy coat is always a good idea for spring. Andrew Gn cuts a perfect coat and then adds dimensional crochet flowers in shades of blue. What’s not to love?
Navy is nice in this two piece set too. It is casual dress-up. The empire waist and puff sleeves give this a singular silhouette.
Carolina Herrera does a beautiful knit dress in navy. The delicate pointelle is on target for today.
Mr. Gn does another blue piece. This time it is a royal blue shaped into a dress with full sleeves and a decorative metal buckle.
Dolce & Gabbana mix pale blue into a golden brocade skirt that is meant to be pared with a pale blue crochet sweater. Casual but glam chic at its best.
Kenzo goes super funky. The signature tiger hoody is tucked into highrise paper-bag pants. The tonal blues define the look. Why not make it yours?
