WHAT WE THOUGHT: Decked in curls and pretty pink pouts, Alice + Olivia's Spring 2011 collection was every girly girl's dream. The collection celebrated the season with soft peach and cream colors, delicate fabrics, and flirty prints, plus a selection of hipster booties and mega-platforms in leopard print and bright turquoise, that gave the dresses an on-trend appeal.
Playing with different fabrics and styles, the collection created outfits that balanced classic feminine form with modern edges. A polka-dot-print pencil skirt paired with a striped button-up, a silky skirt with a structured crochet tank, and a feathered mini with a loose, drapey top make us want to mix and match.
The designs were style eye-candy, embellished with a smattering of eclectic details including tassels, sequins, feathers, and studs. Rocked with your favorite clutch and bright-red lips, every piece would be perfect for a glam night out.
