We’re seeing a strong showing of light-as-air sheer panels, often pleated and layered; colors in everything from painterly hues to moodier shades; and adornments with show-stopping couture embellishments. Shine on!

Trend Recap: New Model Army


The military goes soft! Another trend that we have seen growing in importance throughout the week is a hybrid take on all things military and safari. Luxe fabrics in olive and khaki are key, and they are combined with utility details and relaxed silhouettes for the ultimate in laid-back chic. At ease!

Crisp white shirts have been cropping up at practically every show this week. Wear one borrowed from the boys, buttoned up and tucked into a longer pencil skirt for minimal chic. Or consider a boho take on the trend with a longer tunic worn over cropped pants. Either way, everything looks easy with this simple piece.
