Digital Studio Sweet & Soft 01 of 07 SWEET & SOFT Maria Valentino/MCV Photo (4) WHY WE LOVE IT If you were starting to yearn for springtime, well, here it is, in its more lighthearted (and prettiest) incarnation. Floaty, boudoir-inspired silks in chiffon and satin feel as gentle as a breeze as they swirl around the body in sherbert shades. This is warm-weather dressing at its best—fluid, unstructured, and effortless. HOW TO WEAR ITThere's an innocence to these feel-good textures and pastels, so be subtle with makeup and hair. Try a slick of lip gloss and a center part—no braids, curls, or ballerina buns, please! Resist the urge to pile on accessories (a pendant or headband is OK), and opt for metallic sandals as a foil to the airy look. Photos: (left to right) Nina Ricci, J.
