Outer glow

Guess? by Marciano Circe dress, $208

With spring in full effect and summer just around the corner, heavy sequined pieces can seem a bit weighty and too intense. But by no means should we say “goodbye” to the shine, we should change the way it’s done. This season dazzling embroideries and appliqués are being traded-in for the subtle radiance of shimmery fabrics.

Silk, organza and satin light up a wardrobe with their luminous glow and add sophisticated sheen not just to tops and dresses but also to shoes, bags and even unexpected pieces like leather jackets and trench coats (Guess? Berit trench coat, $178).

High-tech and coated fabrics are the most modern way to shine; they bring the feel of contemporary glamour to the clean and classic silhouette of a day dress or more surprisingly to a pair of jeans (like my 7 For All Mankind Crop Skinny in Bright Turquoise Lustre Denim, $198).
