White House Black market has a flair for designing sophisticated work wear pieces. We love that their spring collection time traveled back to the 1950’s with their full skirts and shift dresses. The recurring theme in this collection was femininity. From ruffled collared jackets to bouquet print dresses and tops this collection was effervescent with lady like looks. In true WHBM fashion everything was black and white, but the splashes of cobalt blue are what make the collection come alive.
As women we like pieces that are versatile and can work for day or night. We think WHBM did a great job by incorporating polka dots, layered stripes, and cutouts into their pencil skirts that were chic enough for work and sexy enough for evening. We have our eyes on the off the shoulder knit dot dress and the waist slimming striped ponte sheath dress because they were both girlie and feminine.
We are also big fans of all the jackets in the collection. Just about all the jackets had a ruffled collar and we were especially drawn to the light pink seasonless ruffle jacket.
The accessories were equally as feminine as the clothes with clustered pearl necklaces, neutral patent leather pumps and, a crocodile satchel purse. Just when we thought they were going overboard with the ruffles and full skirts we spotted a few trendy pieces like a perforated leather jacket, cheetah haircalf flats, and an exotic crossbody bag. This was the kind of collection that every fashionista could feel professional enough in for work and sexy chic in at night. You can expect to start seeing the spring collection hit stores in January.
