“All white looks so clean and modern at the moment,” Kate Dimmock, fashion director of People StyleWatch, says. “Before this spring, I think if you’d worn a white dress with white shoes you might have looked a little like a well dressed nurse, but now we're at a time when it’s all about breaking the rules.” That means taking a cue from the runways by wearing the hue head-to-toe (Jil Sander, Rag & Bone, and Max Mara are all worth emulating), and trying out a previously-uncool accessory: “White pumps! There’s not a single stylish celebrity who hasn’t worn them.” Let Kate’s style inspire you, then shop the sale to break the rules in style.
To say that Milly’s fun, feminine clothing is fit for a princess is no exaggeration: The label counts real-life royal Kate Middleton among its loyal fans. Founded in 2001 by NYC-based designer Michelle Smith — the first-ever American employed by Paris’ luxury fashion house Hermés — Milly synthesizes Smith’s loves for European art and fashion with bold, bright colors and prints, chic silhouettes, and expert tailoring. Shiny tweed cocktail coats in ballet-slipper pink, curve-flattering belted dresses, sexy swimwear in elegant floral prints, and a full range of fabric and leather handbags are decidedly modern with a vintage twist — think Audrey Hepburn meets Taylor Swift. In recent years Smith has expanded her label to include Milly Minis — a darling collection of dresses and outfits for tiny sophisticates — as well as tech accessories in eye-catching animal and geometric prints. In 2012 Milly collaborated with the preppy footwear label Sperry Top-Sider, lending its vibrant touch to Sperry's iconic boat shoes and lace-less sneakers. With looks like these, it's no wonder Milly has become a favorite among royals and celebs alike.
