Diane von Furstenberg visited Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue for a rare appearance and runway presentation and (double bonus) Ken Downing curated the show!

I don’t know if it was watching the RHOBH “housewives” going to Dubai or I’m just digging the trend I first noticed for Resort ’16, but I’m finding myself buying kaftans and kimonos left and right to wear this summer.

Or maybe these cute little tops are hanging in your closet lined up and ready to be given away because you think your days of wearing sheer are over? Well think again. There’s a simple solution. Get your arsenal of camisoles ready so you can relax and enjoy a bang-up spring and summer! (OK, I’ll stop this war on tiny tops parody.)
The Bomber jacket is the transition jacket that is literally the bomb. This is obvious considering they have been on trend for a few seasons and are still as hot as ever!

So if you have not bought your bomber jacket for these spring cool days and evenings hop to it!
