When you’re known for bright, bold prints, it’s a bright, bold move to
open with…khaki?! However, designer Amy Smilovic had it under control
with an impossibly chic wide legged pant paired with a tucked out,
belted tunic. Military style buttondowns worn over high-waisted long
trousers looked woman-in-control sexy, while her inner girlie-girl came
out to play in a gorgeous chiffon dress in a splashy knee-length
green/yellow & white print with a full sleeve and defined waist.
Stylish blouses & buttondowns were tucked into a poufy,
gathered-waist walking shorts & high-waisted, cuffed shorts. The
swingy strapless smocked trapeze frock in an “Eyptian” embroidery was
also swinging seventies fab.
