THE NEW GENERATION

With Barney’s billboards everywhere screaming Dries Van Noten, this look is more than on trend—it is HIGH FASHION.

Maddy’s sumptuous silk mini shorts gave this previously grandma-esque print a new relevance and youth. The most hilarious part- she bought them out of a trailor in Highland Park Village and told us to grab a pair on SALE on GILT!

To get the look, try this pair by Cynthia Rowley online at shopbop.com or gilt.com

While a print like this may require a subdued hue up top, we employed a gutsy alternative to the plain grey t by turning this cashmere Vince sweater around backwards- giving this look a bit of sex appeal while still channeling Dries sophistication. To get this look on SALE with a sweater we are OBSESSED with anyway, try the
Alexander Wang Cowl Back Cardigan
from shopbop.com. (Wear this knit with leather leggings and black booties for fall).

To accessorize, Maddy grabbed a pair of her mother’s ombre Pradas from seasons past (oldie but goodie). They work because of their simplicity (you do not want a super-strappy sandal to distract from the print on your shorts- wayyy too messy.) While this pair may be unavailable, we found a VERY similar pair on SALE at zappos.com:
BCBGMaxAzria – Moriel1 (Black/Black) – Footwear
.

Around front, she layered the gunmetal Benefit and silver Kimberly necklaces by Amber Venz- keeping the top half of her look monochromatic and well-layered.
