MANICURE MUSE: Carolina Herrera Resort ’16

Carolina Herrera has always been and will always be one of the iconic designers of the fashion industry most notable for making clothes that dress the sophisticated woman. It’s not often (rare, actually) that I look to her for modern and youthful inspiration, but now with her Resort ’16 collection all of that has changed. While most of the collection features the exquisite red carpet drama of the brand’s DNA, this time she developed a silhouette that I love. Enter: ‘the box set’. The ‘box set’, as I’m coining, is the way cooler and newer sister of the skirt suit pairing a box top with a straight skirt. The look is sleek, chic, and a endlessly alluring. This powder blue look with the touch of graphic flowers had me itching to recreate. Moral of the story? Carolina Herrera has entered the arena… swinging.
