Gianni Bini: Fashion in Black & White

Hot off the runways this season, black-and-white looks are fun to wear and easy to pull off. Whether worn as a head-to-toe ensemble or as a statement piece, these styles are flattering and on-trend.

We love this cleverly blocked Gianni Bini Polki ponte skirt set for its figure-narrowing panels and edgy feel, perfect with heels for a dinner date or with a cropped jacket and boots for a concert. The partial chain handles and contrast stitching of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Colorblock Chelsea tote and the Juicy Couture Oversized Animal-Print Sunglasses complete the look with a taste of the wild side.

Take black-and-white in a sweeter direction with the classic style and crisp tailoring of the Gianni Bini Fallon collared fit-and-flare dress. The clean lines of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Messenger Bag accentuate the simple look. Fresh with polka-dot-detailed frames, the kate spade new york Brenna polarized cateye sunglasses make an adorable finishing touch.

Fashion Forward: The Shift Dress

Do you want a dress that you can throw on and run out the door looking great? Meet fashion’s most effortless shape — the shift dress. A shift dress is a short, loose-fitting silhouette that hangs from the shoulders and features straight lines that don’t cinch the waist or hug the curves.

The origins of the style can be traced back to the flapper fashions of the 1920s, which moved away from the corset in favor of looser shapes, exposed arms and legs and very little waist definition. Showing up in fashion through the decades, this silhouette is most closely identified with the “mod” look of the 1960s when it was worn by cultural icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy. 

Today, this versatile dress has become a wardrobe hero and is suitable for just about any environment, whether it’s at the office or on the town.

The Dress: We love the lattice-print hemline, neckline and cuffs, as well as the floral motif on this shift dress from Donna Morgan. It’s perfect for running errands or even attending Sunday brunch.

The Rest: Grab the Jet Set Monogram East-West Tote Bag to carry all your errand-running essentials and elevate your look with these Calvin Klein Vivian platform sandals. Add sparkle with some stud earrings and a tri-tone bangle set.  Brightening Finishing Powder illuminates your face and pairs well with this complexion-friendly dress.

Spring Sneak Peek: Chambray Shirts

Soft, durable and versatile, chambray is one of our favorite borrowed-from-the-boys fabrics. Inspired by vintage U.S. Navy workshirts, chambray is here to stay.

Not to be confused with denim, chambray is a softer, lighter-weight choice with an authentic faded and sun-kissed look. The ultimate season-spanning fabric, these qualities make it easy to pair with a variety of colors and styles.

_chambray03

The flared sleeves of this Chelsea & Violet blouse add a touch of boho chic to the everyday. Pair it with this lace pencil skirt from Chelsea & Violet for a fun, casual daytime look. Continue the chambray look to your toes with the smokey blue Fossil Maddox flats. Pull it all together with the coordinating tomato Key-Per shopper tote from Fossil. Add coral and chambray to your beauty routine with Uber pink lip color from Bobbi Brown and Bossy Boots nail lacquer from butter LONDON.

_chambray01

Contrast stitching and a zipper chest pocket add modern flair to this chambray shirt from Jones New York Signature.  Pair it with dark denim like these NYDJ bootcut jeans  to continue the chic take on head-to-toe denim. For a bold punch of color, add this fuchsia Diane tote bag from Gianni Bini. Create a little flair with the dot heart & bow drop earrings from Betsey Johnson and the Join Me wedge sandal from Chinese Laundry in royal blue.

_chambray02 (1)

Fading lends a vintage feel to the Lucy chambray shirt from Cremieux while a mandarin collar adds a stylish twist. Kick start a shopping adventure with it as a jacket over the Lina striped dress from Cremieux,  canvas Champion slip-on shoes from Keds and the Sunset African opal statement necklace from Barse.  Keep your essentials close at hand with the MICHAEL Michael Kors Charlton cross-body bag in vanilla. Be certain you are fashionably on time with this chronograph watch from Michael Kors.

_chambray04

If you like the look of chambray, but prefer a darker wash, you’ll love this button-front shirt from KUT from the Kloth. The darker chambray pairs well with colored denim, like these beach-inspired Sofia coral jeans from Lucky Brand Jeans. Signature drop earrings from T Tahari and the Oil Rub Barcelona saddle bag from Patricia Nash coordinate with the buttons of your shirt, while the Moran wedges from Lucky Brand give you tribal flair.

Nautical Know-How: Spring 2013 Trends

Adrift after a drab winter? Warm up with our favorite nautical looks. Don’t reserve seafaring style for the beach (although, it’s perfect for resort) — maritime pieces work as a crisp pick-me-up any day of the week.

White and navy are nautical stalwarts — pop the pairing with red, orange or yellow. You can also expand the palette with other ocean-inspired hues like seafoam green and cobalt.

Shop the Looks: Calvin Klein Crewneck Tie-Waist Dress & Swarovski “Holly” Starfish-Pendant Double-Chain Necklace, Antonio Melani Tiago Belted Peplum Dress, Lauren Ralph Lauren Textured Leather Belt & MICHAEL Michael Kors Ionna Patent Pumps, Lauren Ralph Lauren Cotton-Blend Button JacketMICHAEL Michael Kors Dolman-Sleeve Stripe Top

Nautical stripes are bold and classic. We love clean navy/white pieces, but unexpected bursts of neon or sparkle set a fresh course. Another subtle update: trade navy bands for black.

Shop the Looks: Cremieux Lina Stripe Knit Dress, IQ Paris Striped Hi-Low DressMICHAEL Michael Kors Button-Front Blazer

Decked out with buckle accents and chain prints,  the MICHAEL Michael Kors resort line takes a refined approach to nautical. Whether you are packing for a getaway or headed to the office, you’ll find a striking piece to sail your wardrobe into the next season.
