Summary: The popular ¾ cropped sleeve that is fitted to just above the elbow & then gracefully widens out into a ruffe – which I’ve dubbed the “Marie Antoinette” sleeve” – was in evidence, as well as lace, wide obi-influenced belts, and interesting fabric surface treatments like honeycomb. All about dresses, a cheery oversized floral was particularly striking, especially as a shift paired with a tomato jacket. Other fun combinations included purple with fuschia, chartreuse’y lime with leaf green, grey with yellow, leaf green with yellow, and taupe with lavender.

Color Palette:
butter yellow, shiny chartreuse, leaf green, tomato, fuschia, purple & metallic purple, lavender, grey, oversized florals, black

Textures & Details:
wide obi-inspired belts; eyelet; honeycomb; Marie Antoinette ruffle ¾ sleeve

Key Looks: yellow eyelet shift with green duster; leaf green belted tunic with black embroidery trim; ¾ sleeve chiffon tunics with Marie Antoinette sleeve; floral frock with eyecatching band of green encircling the bottom of the skirt just above the hem.
