Last week I had the chance to attend a Vogue event with their stylist Emily Holt hosted in conjunction with Tiffany & Co. It was a fun evening hearing about new spring 2017 trends based off the recent NY fashion week styles and how we can pair Tiffany’s jewelry with different outfits.
All of the jewelry were so beautiful, especially the rose gold collection, but one standout necklace was an exceptional 25 carat pear-shaped diamond necklace with smaller stones all around. We were given an opportunity to try it on, so not surprisingly I went for it. It actually didn’t feel as heavy as I thought it would, but it was blindingly brilliant. A few other attendees asked for the price of the necklace and it was reportedly a cool $10 million. I felt like I was on the red carpet for those few minutes, and trying the necklace on was definitely one of the highlights of the night! Who knows which celebrity or princess will buy this striking piece?
The four spring trends that Vogue stylist Emily Holt went over are below, along with some of my favorite picks of the season that perfectly embody these trends are as follows:
1. Bold stripes
I love stripes, even though my husband calls my striped sweaters my “gondola rowing outfits.” They make a boring t shirt or sweater more interesting and are great for layering too. I like the Modcloth Stripe it Lucky skater skirt in thick black and ivory stripes and for work I’ve been wearing the stripe sweater and stripe dress below (both old) on heavy rotation. In putting together this post I came across this adorable striped knit with bell sleeves and this casual chic drop sleeve tee from J.Crew that I want to try on.

Nude pumps (old, similar in lacy print here)
2. Cold shoulder tops
I spoke with Emily Holt after her presentation and she mentioned that she LOVES this trend because it’s a way to show off a little skin and be sexy without revealing other parts of the body. I have the white ASOS V neck cropped cami pictured below and the ASOS off the shoulder top with ruffle sleeves, and I love both for casual wear or a night out. I don’t have a photo in the ruffle sleeve top but am planning on taking one soon.

3. Pink pink pink
One of my favorite colors growing up and still one of my favorite colors to wear, pink hues will make any outfit more feminine and romantic after an entire winter bundled up in bulky clothing. There are already so many beautiful pink tops and dresses available…is it bad that I’m already wishing spring were just around the corner? Let’s just skip this winter… I do want to point out the BlankNYC Faux leather jacket that is now available in blush; I have it in black and it’s a closet staple because it fits perfectly on a petite frame.

Ann Taylor Pearlized crystal statement necklace
Emily Holt said that all white is no longer just for brides, and who says that you can’t wear white after Labor Day? A crisp white outfit makes your look clean and bright, and you can play around with more vibrant or chunky jewelry to make a statement. I think white tops or dresses make up 50% of my wardrobe so I’m clearly a fan.

After the trends discussion we were set free to roam around the room and try on all of the new jewelry. I was particularly taken with the rose gold line, which matches any outfit, and the delicate gold bracelets that even come in XS to fit smaller wrists (trust me, I asked).
Thank you to Vogue and Tiffany & Co for inviting me to this fun event!
