Long Lengths

How low can they go? Designers are showing less skin this spring with longer skirts and pants. Hemlines reach the floor or grazing the ankles showing a more grown-up appeal.

Pajama Time

I noticed a lot of laid back pieces in pajama dressing. Designers like Michael Kors and Suno reinvented the everyday look with the pajama trend. It’s one of those trends that can go terribly wrong if not worn correctly.
