Every time Jill Jurgensen and I get together in Manhattan, trouble follows. Jill is an accomplished interior designer and photographer. She’s been a keen observer of fashion ever since she dressed her first Barbie. Here’s what Jill has been observing about women’s fashion on the streets of Manhattan this summer:

“What’s sexy now? Victoria Beckham’s new tangerine dress! I’m obsessed with it. Catch it right now in Bergdorf’s window on the Fifth Avenue side.

I’ve been a big fan of VB’s silhouettes for some time. Her collections are consistently streamlined, elegant, feminine, and with beautiful detailing.

This spring/summer collection she relies on strong geometric lines and decorative seaming. NO  prints, florals, and sequins here.  Thank goodness. Just bold lines and a beautiful pop of tangerine. A sexy silhouette that elongates and emphasizes the body. What could be more modern and timeless!”

“Color blocking isn’t exactly new; we’ve seen this trend cycle through fashion before. But this spring, it’s brighter, bolder, and NEON, and it’s popping up everywhere including accessories, jewelry, handbags, shoes, and even nail polish.

Color blocking has been featured by such diverse design labels as Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Ruffian, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, and Max Azria.

Wearing bright colors can be an uplighting experience even for us otherwise neutral-bias New Yorkers. Just make sure colors are figure flattering and properly placed.”
