Yel­low is shap­ing up to be hot color for spring. “Yel­low is beau­ti­ful, but very dif­fi­cult for dif­fer­ent skin col­ors. The beauty is that de­sign­ers have come out with so many shades, so there’s an op­tion for ev­ery­one. My­self, I like the lemon color. It goes very well with darker skin.” Where will we see it? “Dresses. You’re go­ing to see a lot of prints that have yel­low—and ac­ces­sories.” How can Wash­ing­to­ni­ans take a yel­low dress from day to night? “Pair it with a blazer and tra­di­tional pumps for work, and then take the blazer and pumps off and add a chunky neck­lace and wedges. Wedges are go­ing to be very big for evening this year. I also love adding a lit­tle fauxleather jacket for cock­tails.” What de­sign­ers are us­ing yel­low well? “Ni­cole Miller is go­ing crazy with yel­low. For young pro­fes­sion­als that can­not be too wild—Black Halo. They take ideas from the big de­sign­ers, and they make them in a very wear­able way.” What other trends are you lov­ing right now? “The trench, white shirt dresses, baby doll dresses, the body suit—the sexy ’90s look.” 1225 King St., Alexan­dria, 703-519-8234; anamer­i­can­in­parisol­dtown.com
