The essential April update of five style-shaping currents, from sport-influenced apparel to a callback to ‘20s flapper style.
We all know health is in vogue now, and it’s totally kosher to wear yoga pants on your weekly Whole Foods run, but this month we’re seeing influences like cycling shorts, zip details and sporty stripes crossing over into (capital F) Fashion.
Rather than a flash in the pan, lime green has proved it has genuine staying power this season. Wear the fresh-feeling hue as a full look in varying shades for a statement-making ensemble, or keep it to shoes, bags and jewelry for an unconventional pop of color that will make any outfit seem extremely up-to-date.
Long known to lend vibrancy to any look in the form of lipstick or nails, pops of red have been making the jump to accessories this season to great effect. Invest in a crimson pair of shoes or a cherry bag for a color pop that feels classic while still turning heads.
Once relegated to the back of the closet, the versatile warm weather staple has been given new life this season by brands like Marni who sent a midi version with patchwork detailing down the runway last year. We love the denim skirt for it’s versatility — pair it with a t-shirt and sneakers for running around town, or heels for a more formal look.
Now’s the time to revisit your childhood flapper costume. Commonly attributed to '20s swinger style, fringe details are everywhere this season, but unlike the western-influenced fringe of yester-season, today’s fringe is elegant and decidedly dressy. Look for swishy skirts from Rachel Comey and swinging tops from Ellery.
