Key Takeaways: Effortlessly chic collection of easy-to-wear dresses and separates in

lightweight fluid fabrics. With clean lines and soft shapes, Cynthia Steffe’s collection

travels effortlessly from day to Parisian night. Key silhouettes included fitted and floaty

dresses, chiffon tops, tunics, mariner shorts, and loosely fitted jackets. Detailing

included laser cutouts, eyelet, crochet, and embroidery.

Color Palette: Neutrals–white, grey, and black–are accompanied by a playful medley of lime green, yellow, orangey pink, and a spectrum of blues.

Silhouettes: Silhouettes were generally large over small.  Sporty, flirty separates included trapeze coats, tunics, chiffon tops, and skinny bottoms: stovepipe pants and mariner shorts.  An assortment of rompers, babydoll dresses, and flowy evening gowns rounded out the collection.

Accessories Report: We love the thin double belts that Cynthia Steffe custom designed for this collection.

What’s Wearable: Designed expressly to be wearable, Cynthia Steffe’s spring collection featured pieces that we’re already picturing in our overstuffed closets: a slate grey jumper dress, a filgree print chiffon top, and a pintucked shadow stripe top.

What’s Not Wearable: Stovepipe pants can be tricky to wear if you don’t have the legs of a model.

    In USA WEEKEND (March 16-18,2007) a Cynthia Steffe cobalt blue ruffled dress is pictured in the What to Wear Spring Fachion Report ’07 with Stacy London and Clinton Kelly. I would like some additional info on this as to where it could be purchased or on line photo and info. My son iis being married in June and this would be a perfect Mother-of-the Groom dress. Thanks.

    Hi Carolyn,

    Cynthia Steffe designs can be found at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. I’ve provided links to the Cynthia Steffe departments to each store below. I don’t think I saw the dress you described, but I hope you find the dress you’re looking for!
