Key Takeaways:  Easy-to-wear combinations of skirts, blouses, sweaters, and dresses in vivid shades of preppy pinks, greens, and corals.  Key trends included: mini dresses, maxi dresses, square shaped jackets, dresses with pockets, and colorblocking.

Color Palette:
  Building on a neutral palette, the collection alternated between preppy greens and pinks, noble greys, corals, and blues.

Silhouettes:  Dresses, dresses, dresses.  Mini dresses, maxi dresses, tunic dresses, shirtdresses, tulip skirt dresses, sheath dresses, and even smock-like dropped waist dresses.  While dresses dominated the collection, skirts also made a strong showing.  Of note were the prairie-style tops and skirts, skirts and dresses with pockets, and the square shaped jackets.

Accessories Report:  Minimal.  Models sported sandal shoes befitting the light, fluid collection.

What’s Wearable:  A square shaped jacket over a day dress is always chic.  You also can’t go wrong with a dress with pockets.

What’s Not Wearable:
  Mid-calf length skirts and dresses are difficult to wear.

    I love your job! I’m sure you’ve had a busy week, but it sounds so exciting. The green is a nice surprise. Pretty.

    It’s been a bit crazy, but definitely fun! Glad you like the green :) I’m a fan as well.
