Women’s Style: Sugar Sweet

By Lauren Jade Hill

By Kristen Shirley

This story originally appeared in the July/August 2017 issue of Elite Traveler.

In our opinion, the best part of the continued blurring between seasons is not having to retire your wardrobe or rotate your closet. Florals in fall? Sure! White after Labor Day? Absolutely! Pastels year-round? You bet!

Pre-fall’s pastels are perfect to carry you through the warm months and remain perfectly in style come the end of the summer. At Dior, new artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri offered a wide array of looks in her show, ranging from equestrienne to flower child, reflecting the pervading notion of the importance of individuality and creativity in fashion. There’s no longer a checklist needed to be on trend—designers are letting their clients choose.We love this ombré dress combining pale orange and mint colors.

At Altuzarra, a belted cocktail dress with fabulous pleated ruffles comes in a sorbet-tangerine color, perfect for hot summer nights. Tomas Maier showed a kitschy collection with nods to the 1940s at Bottega Veneta, including a sweet pale yellow skirt suit. Finally, at Tome, Australian designers Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin create an unexpectedly perfect pairingwith a romantic pink skirt and a sleeveless button-up. Worn with bright opaque tights and red shoes (another trend: pink and red together), it’s ready for fall with just an addition of a coat.
