SNAKESKIN

IDEAL FOR: The woman looking to take a sophisticated yet subtle approach to prints. I suggest using snakeskin in an outfit with a minimalist color palette. The print is eye-catching enough on its own, so the rest of the outfit should be about softening the look.

PAIR WITH: Solid, clean tones like white, black, camel and sand. I like to wear my snakeskin blouse with a white jean and white Gucci slides.

Rag & Bone T-shirt; $115


EARTH TONES

IDEAL FOR: A more sophisticated shopper—a woman who follows trends and gravitates to a clean, minimalistic look—and available at many different price points. These neutrals were represented on the runway as full head-to-toe monochromatic outfits. If that’s not for you, I suggest picking a statement piece (coat/trousers) in an earth tone and then incorporating warmer tones in other pieces.

WHEN TO WEAR: Suitable for numerous occasions—from the office to a summer wedding.

Zadig & Voltaire prewashed shirt; $258


WIDE-LEG JEANS

BEST SUITED FOR: Shorter women, because it enhances and elongates the figure. Wide-leg jeans look best when paired with a fitted blouse or top because it balances out the proportions of the generous cut on the leg.

BEST WORN WITH: A heel, because it helps create the effect of a longer, slimmer silhouette.

Mother “Tomcat” high-rise jeans; $238


NEON

AIMED AT: The fashion risk-taker not afraid to try color. The trend is loud, so when incorporating neon into an outfit, make sure you keep everything else simple and minimal.

PERFECT FOR: Your next beach getaway!

Gucci neon leather mules; $790


SEE-THROUGH

SUITABLE FOR: Any age when utilized in the right way. Wearing a see-through blouse doesn’t appeal to everyone, so I typically play it safe and incorporate the clear trend into an accessory—shoes, clutch or jewelry.

HOW I ROCK IT: I have a pair of Manolo Blahnik sandals with dual clear straps that are my go-to for business luncheons as well as a night out.

Valentino transparent PVC shopper trimmed in black leather with inner, removable red leather clutch; $1,170
