Knit Everything

"Comfort clothing never felt so chic. From matching knit sets to dresses with a knit-jacket combo, keep an eye out for clean lines, and play around with day-to-evening looks."

Sheer Layers

"A sheer piece is a modern layering item essential to any wardrobe. Try wearing a sheer top under a vest, blazer, or slip dress. For a more daring and edgier look, layer a sheer top over a bra or camisole paired with your favorite denim and blazer."

Combining Colors

"This season, look for bold colors and color combinations like citrus hues of yellow, orange, green, grapefruit, and cerulean that are guaranteed to add life and excitement to your wardrobe."
