Contrary to popular belief, fashion on the East Coast isn’t all work and no play. South of New York, we love bright colors and an appropriately placed frill, and we love watching our friends’ faces light up like it’s Springtime when we walk into the room.
In this day of rampant consumerism, we like to stick with what we already know we love, and what we love is:
- Lilly Pulitzer dresses. The colors and patterns pop in pretty, feminine styles.
2. Three Dots Summer apparel; it’s comfy and chic.
3. J. Crew everything. Because, really, how could you not?
5. Ann Taylor.
7. Michael Stars.
8. Diane von Furstenberg’s designs. In or out of season.
9. Trina Turk.
10. Ralph Lauren– of course.
