We look our best in subdued colors, sophisticated cuts, and a general air of sleek understatement. For me, the summer will be pure gray – mother-of-pearl gray, very pale gray. To me, this is the big statement for summer. Then we have light blue, light turquoise, lots of pink. It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion. I always thought what you wore underneath was as important as what you wear on top. Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.
