Fall and winter are the mainstays of the formal social season, but what about spring? There are still parties aplenty, and even though April’s weather differs little from February in the Eden that is Orange County, now is the time to lighten your look with fresh fashion choices. Glamour reigns, whether your calendar includes garden parties or galas, receptions, dances or nights at the club.

On spring runways in New York, Paris and Milan, designers borrowed simple lingerie silhouettes and added festive floral embroidery, sequins, stripes – even plumage in the form of feather trim on a diaphanous gown. Latin influences added spice, and bare shoulders came out to flirt.

With these looks, you’ll be fashionably ready to party on.
