Today’s Definition of Sophistication

Women today are educated about fashion. More than ever before, we know how to mix colors and clash motifs, combine textures and contrast details. We even know how to turn monochromes into real fashion statements, by shaping them up into interesting silhouettes and accessorizing them with avant-garde items. It’s all about design, and in that respect we keep on informing each other. We love up-and-coming trends and we want to share them with you as summer progresses!

Every look has to have that playful thing that teases your eyesight and generates discussion. Borrowing from pop culture and music history, the Alice + Olivia X The Beatles Clyde Printed Mini Shift Dress does the little trick. Creative Director Stacey Bendet is known for incorporating attention-grabbing images into her contemporary creations and that’s why she provides us with the fairytale-inspired Alice + Olivia Ruthy Beaded Apple Intarsia Wool-Cotton Cardigan and the catwalk-worthy Alice + Olivia Ruthy Stace Knit Cotton-Blend Cardigan.

We all need a layering piece for the summer breeze – as well as in transitional weather – but we have to pick the coolest of all so that it is really a valuable addition to our wardrobe. For font and script lovers we picked the Burberry Kern 48 Scribble Check Merino Wool Sweater with a neutral background and an iconic motif. To spice up a nautical look, think of the Maje Maximus Breton Stripe Sweater. Never forget your bohemian days that often include a casual knit top such as the Sandro Gemilia Tasseled Lace-Up V-Neck Sweater.

Revive your girliness via styles that include charming retro details including lace trims, ruffles, and bows. Innocence comes up with the Alice + Olivia Farah Sleeveless Polka-Dot Mini Dress that mixes a classic motif with a timeless silhouette. For cool lettering and sparkliness, count on the bow-accented Sandro Modest Sequined Striped Shirt Dress . For a grown-up version of the girly dress, resort to the selective sheerness in the Maje Roseray Lace Midi Dress .

Lines & stripes play an important role in minimalist design but also in ethnic and other cultural themes. We love geometry because it defines a silhouette and infuses an image with a clean feel. Lines often have a slimming effect as in the case of the Maje Roy Multicolor Piping Cotton Canvas Dress . Sportswear stripes are a strong element in the Sandro Twin Cropped Knit Top & Viviane Skirt . Beyond all-purpose dresses you can mix the Alice + Olivia Connely Striped Crop Top with florals and other painterly motifs!

Delightful Motifs

It’s never easy to pick the right one because patterns are always a departure from the basics. We believe, for example, that the colorfulness of the Alice + Olivia Anelle Off-the-Shoulder Lace Ruffle Romper appeals more to the emotions. The dark blooms of the Veronica Beard Tatum Floral Midi Dress add a chic factor. And if that rebellious toddler still sleeps inside you, slip into the Burberry Antonina Doodle Print Silk Tie-Neck Dress !
