Reem Acra‘s Spring show at NYFW says don’t be afraid of color–get away from the neutrals you have been wearing all winter.  The makeup was kept natural and the hair in slick topknots with coordinating scarves.  Everyone should be trying this effortlessly chic look.  The perfect summer hair and makeup–sleek, natural, sophisticated–and perfect for the heat of summer.

Try an unexpected color combination.  Red and purple may not be two colors you would have thought to combine–but look how regal they are paired together!

Off the shoulder is a HUGE trend for Spring 2016–super sexy yet sophisticated.  Mixing of two polka dot prints is so playful and the complementary colors of blue and orange are gorgeous.

A romper is the perfect, effortless look for summer.  Add a killer heeled sandal and you are out the door.  The tassel is a wonderful extra little something and adds some movement.

I never get tired of bright pink and orange together.  Yet when I mention it to my clients they hesitate.  Yes, it is a bold choice, but the results are so worth the risk.  Trust me, you will get compliments.

Belt a gorgeous kimono?  Yes, please!  Not only does it help you keep an hourglass silhouette, but it is the perfect sparkly accessory to top off a look.

We have been seeing the sheer trend for several seasons, but I have never seen it done better than Reem has done it here.  I don’t know if it is the intense blue, the gentle touch of metallic or the perfect, strategically placed beading, but this look is FLAWLESS.

The golden tone of this stunning gown plays perfectly with the models olive complexion.  The train shimmers as it glides down the shiny black runway.  The large keyhole neckline is daring, plunging and sexy while still remaining elegant and sophisticated.  Any woman would feel like a princess in this gorgeous number.
