Opt for a bold blouse: This year’s signature shirt: square shape, elbow-length sleeve, graphic (nonfloral) print.
Pair one print with another: The delicate black-and-white print of the pencil skirt is so subtle, it can be mixed with the bolder print up top. The black side panels trim your hips.
Go graphic: This striking bag is also neutral, so you can wear it with anything, even mixed prints or
(why not?) a brightly colored shoe.
Shrink your sweater: The fitted silhouette is what looks new (so is the neck embellishment).
Crop your pants: Ankle length is in, best worn with heels and bare legs.
