Next to enter the scene are the gorgeous light to medium depth colors from Pantone. Neons dissipate, thank goodness. Though you will still find bright orange piping in many garments and accessories. I am immediately drawn to the Fendi combo of nectarine and lemon zest!
Spring's shapes range from structured with relaxed elements to fluid, angled cuts. The Bermuda short goes viral and denim cutoff shorts strike it rich. Details are never understated. In fact, the more intricate, the better. Accessories keep on keeping on, with beautiful structured handbags. The tote being the biggest show stopper. Shoes continue from ladylike to wedge to spring boots with a roman flair. Jewelry begins and ends in gold, with white enamel giving gold a run for its money.
If you're looking to push yourself this spring, start by emulating these everyday looks below, inspiration courtesy of Dries Van Noten, Michael Kors, Valentino and DSquared. Yes, they involve a little risk. But if tailored to your personal style, you just may be able to pull off your own interpretation.
Beauty goes in many directions this season — bold eyeliner, lush lashes, bushy brows, bright matte lips and glowful skin. And hair rides the spectrum with braids, messy buns, low ponies, triangle parts, slick rick and fab blow outs.
So get going! Time to get your spring on whether the weather wants you to or not.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana used the golden mosaics of Sicily's Cathedral of Monreale as a starting point for this collection. Said to be a romanticized view of the Catholic Church, the line explores all angles, from innocence to scandal.
And oh, how I love those crosses! My vintage Chanel cross necklace might need a new companion.

In fact, my current wallet is tangerine and the one I'm eyeing, by Alexander McQueen, is two-toned orange and red. I'm not sure anyone would notice the change.
This particular style is so versatile and holds absolutely everything (and then some). It looks good on its own, outside of a purse, too.
Why change a good thing?
