Tracy Reese is known for several things: a flirty, feminine aesthetic, bold pops of color, knowing how to work a print and for designing for the bodies of real women. I’m a big fan of her Plenty by Tracy Reese line and was able to watch her Spring 2011 collection showcased this past Monday in New York as a part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Reese went all out with rounded glasses (a trend across may collections. Read about it here), classic belts, big and floppy hats and pretty pendants in her show and showcased a color palette of rich royal blues, pretty neutrals and whites and blacks. Her styling made a huge impact and I loved the pretty, natural hair on the models with nude, matte lips. The high end pieces looked effortlessly chic and ready to throw on come Spring.
I adore this color and this dress would be a show-stopper for a client presentation or from going day to night.
This dress is 70s meets DVF if you ask me.
This dress is too cute and I love the different take on color-blocking by using two different patterns.
Sleek and modern, this dress moved beautifully on the runway.
This is a classic Tracy Reese silhouette.
I loved this look and could see myself wearing it to work easily.
This outfit has Andrea written all over it!
Loving this blazer. It does strike me as more Fall, than Spring, however.
Two cute. Even though I’m not a fan of silk blouses usually, I love this ensemble.
This dress makes me want to frollick in Central Park.
This was my favorite look in the collection. I especially like the cut outs in the back of the blouse (see photo below).
And here are the shots I snapped from alongside the runway:
