Of course, we women need very few excuses for dressing up, after all a lot of us will put together our favourite outfits for the opening of an envelope! But Easter is just round the corner, so we have the perfect excuse…again! LUXOS shares four irresistibly chic and sophisticated styles for you that will have you not only looking, but feeling your utter best, because really, what makes a girl feel better than being enveloped in exquisitely tailored clothes that are timelessly on-trend? Here are our selections, that will have your friends at Easter lunch gasping: “Where did you get that?!”
The Etro sensibility stands in a world of its own. The use of colours and patterns is extraordinary, and designer Veronica Etro for her spring summer collection has selected an absolutely gorgeous butterfly print against a pristine white background and transformed it into beautifully polished outfits with an innate sense of lightness with just a touch of a Bohemian edge! Our favourite from the runway has to be this Asian inspired tunic shirt, cinched in at the waist with a white leather tie-belt, teamed with tonal three-quarter length trousers. So simple, so chic!
The refinement of Dior is legend and Raf Simons in his first collection for the venerable maison sent beautifully crafted confections down the runway that hit the right note between sensual and sweet, while maintaining an inescapably sophisticated core. Impeccably tailored in gorgeous fabrics with a rich hand, our pick for your Sunday best has to be the fun yet sublimely elegant pink and black striped dress. With a full A-line skirt, that sits just above the knee and a masterful construction that give movement and life to the stripes: you’ll be the envy of your friends at Easter brunches and more!
Leather was an important story at Emma Hill’s Mulberry collection this spring/summer and one of our favourites is this quietly glam and supremely sophisticated combo. The silver and gold flowers of the printed jacquard peacoat, illuminate the outfit and the matching bag is the perfect accent that completes the whole. The buttery leather trousers feel like a second skin, as they hang effortlessly away from the body and the delicate caramel palette is perfect for day and evening!
Another Luxos favourite of the season is Missoni’s subtly degradé dress in sumptuous suede; the delicate tangerine and apricot hues and the signature Missoni knit detailing in bright white is utterly irresistible! A shift dress is forever, a friend who will even let you eat a little extra and no one will be the wiser!
And of course, a lady can never be without a handbag! Go for Tory Burch’s top handle white tote embellished with a cheerful wheat pattern. With a practical front pocket enriched by a gold toned clasp, it is the perfect accessory to hold your all-important Sunday essentials. Tory Burch said it best herself: “I love what wheat and yellow represent –optimism!” and what is getting dressed up in your Sunday best about if not consummate optimism?
