How to Dress for Spring Events, With Love from New York and Dolce & Gabbana

Isabelle Sturt reviews the new Spring line for Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana, the infamous Italian fashion house recently held their Alta Moda show, in which the biggest names in the world model a huge collection of beautiful pieces around a theme. This year the show was held at the Metropolitan Opera, and the themes were sparkle, extravagance and an empire state of mind.

The looks were set for a night on the town, at the opera and for all events in between. The trends however, are super adaptable for spring and all the events coming up in the next few weeks before exams:

FRINGE

In all colours and lengths, fringe has been making a comeback this season, and this show was no exception. This all-red ensemble was tasteful, and multi-coloured fringe made other appearances on jackets and gowns. Fringe is the perfect addition to a little black dress, like this one from ASOS. Dance the night away while feeling like Jordan Baker in The Great Gatsby.

DARK FLORALS

When summer is just around the corner but has not yet sprung, a floral print on a darker background is the perfect transition, especially in St Andrews where winter has clung on for much longer this year. It also makes for great pieces that translate well from day to night, and like this model shows, make a fantastic statement.

FEATHERS

To avoid looking like Big Bird, Dolce Gabbana added just the hint of a feather to these jeans to add just the right amount of flair. Other pieces in the show, notably the opening dress worn by Karlie Kloss took feathers to the next level, but pieces like this top from Topshop are simple with a twist. Paired with smart trousers or a tailored skirt it would make for a very elegant look.

STARRY EYED

Stars and constellations were a big theme in the show, with many elaborate headdresses showcasing the moon and arrays of comets. They were also scattered across dresses like this black gown. The shoes from Nasty Gal can add a pop of sparkle to a little black dress, whereas the dress’s detail can be appreciated up close without being too much.

METALLIC SUITS

Suits in red, stripes and black made many appearances. This particular piece was hand embroidered with words about the Met and New York, but the suits all had a distinctly masculine feel with a feminine touch. For those who might think red stripes or sequins is too much for Kinkell, this metallic suit from Zara might provide the right amount of shimmer.

Taking inspiration from the runway can be difficult, especially when the pieces are bold and hard to mix into an everyday wardrobe. Extracting little pieces can really help to make a statement without looking out of place or uncomfortable. So go forth and dazzle in feathers, florals and fringe!
