So don’t delay—click through for all the details on the hottest new trend, the most amazing new scent, and everything in between!
Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection
Given that pastels are a major spring trend, we simply can’t look past the must-try Bouquet Collection by Dolce & Gabbana. Not only does it feature the six gorgeous pastel nail polishes pictured above, but you will also find a set of similarly amazing eyeliner pencils and a gorgeous eyeshadow quad. We die! The Bouquet Collection is available now at stores like Saks Fifth Avenue.
Alberta Ferretti For Macy’s Impulse
If your wardrobe is yearning for a new dress, make sure you check out the Alberta Ferretti for Macy’s Impulse collection as soon as it arrives. The line features a slew of colorful dresses—from a bohemian maxi dress to a gorgeous fuchsia cocktail number. Plus, every last piece will be available at a budget-friendly price. The collection arrives at Macy’s stores on April 17. Prices will start at $49.
Just in time for summer, a timely new trend—surfer chic—has been popping up everywhere. Better yet, there are so many ways to try this look. You can pick up a neon yellow neoprene bandage dress, you can opt for sunkissed skin, you can try pastel lipstick, or you can opt for palm tree-print pieces like Topshop’s Palm Print Runner Shorts ($24). The choice is yours, but don’t hesitate!
Jason Wu for Nest
Want to spruce up your pad in a minute? Jason Wu has teamed up with NEST Fragrances on a luxury scented candle, Orchid Rain. The candle is decorated with a printed inspired by Wu’s spring 2012 collection and features an exotic combination of notes—including nashi pear, pomegranate, goji berry, pink pepper, coconut, and white orchid. The candle is available now at stores like Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman for $48.
Nothing has us more excited this month than the arrival of music festival season. It all kicks off with Coachella in just a few weeks—The Black Keys, Radiohead, and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are headlining—and will continue through the summer. Of course, the reason we are excited has nothing to do with the music—it is all about festival fashion, which we will be chronicling all season long.
Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina
Now that you have given your home a new scent, how about one for you? Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina is inspired by the “Salvatore Ferragamo woman,” a woman who is trendy but also timeless, feminine with just a hint of audacity. The scent is filled with cheerful notes, including currant, pink pepper, jasmine, musk, and patchouli—all of which will give you a little pep. Check it out at Nordstrom, starting at $74.
