Spotted around town…. ABOVE
The street is always the place to gleam trends and in New York City, the party circuit of “in crowds” offers the best fashion clues around. Above, you’ll notice that girls are wearing a lot more backless dresses sometimes topped with bangle bracelets. Shades of blue, especially burnished turquoise, are popping up everywhere. Julie Ragolia is the brunette in the Maria Cornejo dress.(Note: Julie made the cover of the Sartorialist look book and she’s always on point.) She wore the deep blue frock to an art opening. Ditto for the backless blue dress worn by artist Rachel Feinstein, seen here with drop earrings. (Rachel, a former Marc Jacobs muse, is featured in this month’s Vogue.) Note: shiny silk , the material seen everywhere, in tops and halters, work well with Hudson jeans. Tanya Selvaratnam, an actress/playwright associated with the Wooster Group, wears a beaded vintage top with a Commes des Garcons grey skirt but she could easily pair it with some Hudson skinnies. Despite wedges popping up for Spring, stilettos are still the favorite heel. Girls with hippie vibes like Sarah Sophie Flicker (seen above) can rock a cool Spring head scarf with a feminine blouse and a pair of jeans. I think a nice pair of Hudson flares would really top her look.
