Essie Says: Let’s Get Digital

On our morning stroll down Woodmont, we realized that Bethesdans are quite a tech savvy bunch, with pedestrians juggling at least one iPhone or Blackberry along with their morning Starbucks. The fashion world has embraced the digital age also, with live-streaming fashion shows and style bloggers sitting in the front row to report on SS’10. So is it to anyone’s surprise that digital prints are hitting the shops faster than Wi-Fi?  Prints-wise, the usual suspects have been pushing florals this season, to which we quote the wise Ms. Miranda Priestly: “Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.” This week, Essie says: be bold and reach for the new digital prints!

There’s nothing like a silk jumpsuite, and these colors are just too appetizing to pass up!

Halston Heritage Short Silk Jumpsuite – $375

How to wear: Throw on a pair of gold flat sandals and a floppy hat for the perfect vacation ensemble. For a dinner date in downtown Bethesda, pair with a thick belt with gold grommets, woven leather platform sandals, and a cobalt cocktail ring.

Silk blouses are always a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. This year favor prints over muted solids.

How to wear: The two tops above can be worn casually with straight leg white jeans and silver wedges. For the office, tuck into black trousers and a skinny silver belt, finish with a long silver necklace and round-toe patent pumps.

Digital print shoulder bags are quite versatile, and can be worn with a printed blouse or neutrals.

Longchamp – XLIGHT Tote bag – $445

How to Wear: This tote can be worn with a long blue maxi dress, or to add a touch of color to a racer-tank and cuffed jeans.

Essie has always been an advocate of the printed scarf, which adds an easy pop of color to neutral day-wear.

Diane von Furstenberg – African Sugar Earth Gauze Scarf – $165

How to Wear: This scarf can be worn with a burnout T and a pair of distressed denim shorts, or use it to dress up your LBD for a night on the town.

So when you’re getting dressed this weekend, remember that the best way to avoid looking analog is to go digital!
