Sun, Sun, Sun. Here It Comes.

The shift to New York City spring follows a familiar pattern: skittishly unpredictable weather leading to uncertain modes of dress. But with the rise in temperature, the style of the city often blooms along with it. It’s marvelous to behold; discarding heavy wools for lighter cottons, short skirts and even shorter sleeves. One of the big standouts is the white maxi skirt, a signal of a lightness of mood and fresh possibilities.

We often think of spring as the time of year when colors burst, like our favorite botanicals — the brighter the better — but people also made the case for neutrals. Brown and earthy tones give weight and a touch of class. There’s been an uptick of fire engine red — particularly with flat shoes — but the best finds remain the coordinated outfits for couples and friends, similar to duos in Tokyo last year. Finally, a standing ovation for the men, who were impeccably groomed.
