Bloomingdale’s Westchester is gearing up for spring with “Bloomie’s in Bloom,” a fashion show spotlighting the latest trends, set for March 17, St Patrick’s Day, at 1 p.m.
This year, the store will be stocked with playful, ready-to-wear trends, from pretty pastels to frisky ruffles to bountiful botanicals — along with 50 shades of suiting, an ode to “Fifty Shades Freed,” the third film in the E. L. James trilogy.
Trends in accessories reflect a laid-back, SoCal vibe — perfect as a precursor to summer — with straw and raffia textures and slides and mules, preferably in white.
Here are a few key selections:
FORAL FUN (1)
Ramy Brook’s Meghan Silk Dress is part of Bloomingdale’s 100-Percent Exclusive campaign. The fitted dress — which boasts a V-neck and back and shirred waistband — features a palm print in delicate shades of green. A tiered hem offers added body. This is the perfect look for a backyard get-together — or a tropical getaway. $425.
TRENDING WITH THEORY (2)
Theory’s Stretch-Wool Blazer Dress is a great piece for the winter-spring transition. Designed for a contemporary fit, the double-breasted dress features peak lapels, a crossover V-neck, long sleeves and button cuffs as well as a grid print and a nipped-waist silhouette. Pair it with simple heels for the warmer days or over-the-knee boots and a scarf for added coverage. $575.
TOTALLY TORY (3)
Tory Burch’s Floral Continental Leather Wallet is way to dip your toe (or rather, your fingers) into bold prints. The wallet features a lined, zip closure, with two interior slip pockets, one interior zip pocket and eight interior credit card slots. $238.
SLIDE INTO ZANOTTI (4)
Giuseppe Zanotti’s Embellished Suede Slide Sandals are sure to add some shimmer and shine. The dazzling effect comes from Swarovski crystals surrounded by glass beads coupled with leather. $650.
KOOL WITH KATE (5)
If slide sandals aren’t your thing, Kate Spade New York’s Glendi Mules are sure to catch your attention. These shoes feature a square-toed, slip-on style with a gold-tone, chain-link detail in the front, along with a gold glitter-covered, fabric upper, a leather lining and a leather sole. Sparkle day or night. $278.
PRETTY WITH PASQUALE (6)
Of course, no ensemble is complete without complementary jewelry. This 18-karat Rose Gold Floral Milky Quartz Ring by Pasquale Bruni is delicate enough to harmonize with any outfit but distinctive enough to make its own statement. Not to mention, quartz has many healing properties, like boosting energy and enhancing clarity. $1,450.
NEW TO BLOOMIE’S
RAD WITH REBECCA (7)
Set your sights on Rebecca Minkoff’s Round Crossbody Bag. This stylish, pastel pink number is versatile with thin straps for a convenient, cross-body wear and handles for classic carry. It’s slated to be available in Bloomingdale’s stores the beginning of this month $195.
TRULY TED (8)
A rose petal pink dress by Ted Baker is also new to Bloomie’s this month. The shorter length adds a flirty twist, which is complemented by the ruffled one-shoulder style. Featuring ruching at the waist and striped mesh on the collar and bottom hem, this dress is one that’ll get you noticed — in a most feminine way. $195.
