A royal princess escapes her responsibilities to enjoy the city of Rome. Isn’t that how we all want to feel on holiday—royal and removed from life’s responsibilities? Spring lasts a New York minute, so let’s make it fashun while on holiday! Springtime brings garden parties and galas galore, and May holds the most fashionable party of the year, the Met Gala. Guests brought their A-game to this year’s theme, “Camp,” where costumes were over-the-top and excessive. This year’s highlights included Lady Gaga’s four outfits and red carpet show of Zendaya as Cinderella, who loses her glass slipper on the steps of the Met. You’ll definitely find inspiration in their outfit choices.
As a garden party and springtime gala NYC veteran, here are my tips to being spring-ready for your invite to parties this season. Floral, stripes and paisley, loud and bold. Not into prints? Take a conservative route and stay on trend with beige, nudes or white. Go basic with a white purse and classic trench coat. You can still add flair to your conservative approach with daring accessories like bold pastel sunglasses, wicker basket purses, and statement earrings. Wherever your travels take you this season, take a cue from Anya in “Roman Holiday” and shut off to enjoy life with your spring fling!
Xx yours truly, Ivy
