NYC is going ga-ga for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and I have been admiring the hottest looks and awesome designs for Spring 2011. Ranging from classic pieces by designers like Calvin Klein and Oscar de la Renta to the contemporary styles of Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs, the 2011 collection features something for every stylin’ mama. Here are some of my top picks.
1. Oscar de la Renta
Renowned for his stunning wedding dresses, this elegant and long-flowing tan and floral jacket would make a perfect addition in any moms closest. Whether for an outing with the girls, special occasion or a day with the kids, this piece showcases a woman’s femininity in this chic, but not trendy Spring jacket.
2. Marc by Marc Jacobs
The summer is the perfect time to explore new patterns and colors and I am going to start with this vintage-inspired cherry dress by Marc Jacobs. This fashionable number would be great for a picnic with the family or for date night – enjoying the warm breeze in NYC in this fun halter top.
3. Narciso Rodriguez
This understated long and flowing dress with its double tones of light and gray is the perfect addition to any moms closet. I also love the simple side slit and the contemporary flair of this stylish Spring dress.
4. Calvin Klein
An elegant pant suit, this modern piece is great for any working mom that wants more options that a traditional skirt. As a free-flowing suit, this chic option screams modern women who can handle a day at the office with confidence.
5. Proenza Schouler
This contemporary salmon pink-colored jacket is a vivid ode to color and feeling fearless as both a mom and a woman. I love the length and pockets in this edgy jacket that will certainly be the talk of your next play date.
