Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka just created their prettiest, freshest collection ever. If you have a dressed up event in your future, you need to take a look at their glam yet young-spirited looks.
Watching Badgley Mischka‘s gorgeous Spring 2016 collection made me sooo nostalgic for Gossip Girl. Virtually every look would have fit right at home in Upper East Side heroines Blair and Serena’s closets.
The looks have just the right amount of glamorous sophistication married with youthful freshness to make any girl who wants to be the best dressed in the room easily achieve her goal. And marrying elegant, tasteful sophistication with fresh vivacity is not an easy task in the least. It’s hard to create stunning gowns or dressy shorts suits that could easily go to any awards show or red carpet on twenty and thirty-somethings, without aging them up.
But Mark and James pull this miracle off easily. Starting with a white iridescent shorts romper with a halter top that sexily shows off the shoulders, and including a sunny, glowing yellow tweed shorts suit, there are endless options for a Blair.
For a special work day, a yellow floral print sleeveless dress fitted on top and with a looser shirt is just right. And for evening fairytale-ish tulle skirts with embellished flowers combined just the right amount of girly fun with drop dead chic.
Badgley Mischka Spring 2016: Great For ‘Gossip Girl’ Fans
If you’re a Serena, Badgley Mischka’s all-out sleek goddess looks will be right for you. The body slimming jersey columns for evening with jet or gold beading embellishments and strategic cutouts will showcase your figure.
For daytime, it’s the I-mean-business shimmery ice-blue shorts suit with a longer jacket that’s just right. For a day into the evening look, an Audrey Hepburn-esque black v-front dress with a modern chiffon overlay will make you look mysteriously sexy, and Serena, for sure.
Leighton Meester and Blake Lively may have left Blair and Serena behind, but you don’t have to. With Badgley Mischka, they could have sailed easily into 2016 and now you can, too, with this collection. Take a look at their runway photos and enjoy!
