I particularly liked the skinny red belt paired on soft dresses, slouchy socks with pop color sandals, exposed metal zippers on flouncy florals, the oversize plaid shirt over skimpy flirty dress, sheer fabrics and a pair of rolled up silk cargo pants. Also strongly in favor of the cargo vest making a comeback. — Alix Kivlin
