I look forward to the alice + olivia presentation every season. Stacey Bendet is just one of those designers that outdoes her self with every collection. This season was no different. With the underlying tone of the collection being “at a crossroads of prep-meets-pretty,” Stacey created this idea of an American Girl who’s carefree with a twist of romance.
From the beaded blazer above paired with ripped boyfriend jeans to a geometric maxi skirt paired with a crisp white polo – pretty meets preppy is going to rule for spring. Lots of whites and neutrals throughout, mixed with pops of pastels (as well as animal print and…sparkle!). Spring can’t get here fast enough! (hello, and those sparkly heels can’t either)
Speaking of…we can’t forget the accessories. a+o has added more bags (just look at the last photo!) and shoes to their line for spring! Swoon!! I took photos of a few of my favorites. They are to.die.for. (as always)
