We see Pumpkin tones work well across styles like Missoni’s fitted knit and Fendi’s chic strapped booties. Iceberg offers a directional application with a color pop heel, while chocolate brown contrasts add emphasis to slouchy astrakhan caps at Missoni.

Key Item: The Homestead Blouse

A chic style for the daywear wardrobe, new season blouses are updated with a range of 70’s-inspired prints, from tiles and geos to miniature florals.

Oscar de la Renta makes use of contrast with stark black and white blocking. Karen Walker introduces delicate sheers for a luxe feel in crimson, as feminine blooms pattern a more structured design at Band of Outsiders. Meanwhile, Anna Sui’s blouse makes a directional statement by combining a busy mixed print with a cropped silhouette that can be worn in layered stylings.
