Key Takeaways:
  A body-conscious collection of dresses and separates in solid colors.  The neutral-colored collection was loosely fitted, with volume being cinched in at the waistline.

Color Palette:  White dominated the collection, along with grey and beige.  Splashes of spring green, light blue, and turquoise added visual interest.

Silhouettes:  Of note was: (1) the loose fit of the garments, (2) the emphasis on the waistline, (3) the skirts that ended at mid-calf, and (4) the voluminous sleeves.

Accessories Report:  Strappy gladiator/orthopedic style shoes.

What’s Wearable:  Most of the collection was wearable–favorite pieces included a grey, cap-sleeved dress with a high front slit and the blousy white overcoat with the kimono sleeves.

What’s Not Wearable:  Skirts that end at mid-calf are tough to wear without looking short.
