MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION

BAREFOOT GLAMOUR

This season takes a laid-back approach to glamour with relaxed silhouettes, artisanal detailing and fabrics that catch the breeze. Sarongs, kimonos and pajamas lend luxe languor to the urban wardrobe, while painterly takes on tropical palms, tie-dye and hand-weaving evoke a sense of escapism. After-dark dressing is equal parts luxurious and nonchalant, with alluring cocktail attire paired with easy sandals that slip off—for when you’re ready to hit the dance floor.

WHEN YOU SAY GLAMOUR, A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK OF HEAVY MAKEUP, TIGHT BELTS AND STILETTO HEELS. I THINK OF CINDY CRAWFORD GETTING MARRIED BAREFOOT IN THE BAHAMAS, OR OF KATE MOSS IN A SLIP ON THE RED CARPET WITH JOHNNY DEPP IN THE ’90S. THESE WERE VERY GLAMOROUS MOMENTS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME THEY HAD A LAID-BACK EASE TO THEM THAT IS VERY CHIC. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SACRIFICE COMFORT TO FEEL GLAMOROUS.
