In New York City, where temperatures are continuing to hover right around freezing – and snow looms in the forecast at least once a week, our favorite NYC celebs just can’t wait to break out their spring colors and styles. We couldn’t agree more – and are looking forward to spring fashions and weather just as much as they are. Even if we don’t have red carpet events every night, it would still be nice to escape these frigid temperatures!
One of our favorite “Gossip Girl” hotties, Jessica Szohr, indulged our innermost fashion desires this week when she debuted a Spring 2011 Alice + Olivia black and white frock – and paired the cheery look with bright fuchsia pumps! Take a look at the adorable ensemble below, and get ready to work your spring looks despite the chill!
Recently tapped to be Sobe Lifewater’s “Skinsuit” Model for the upcoming spring and summer, Jessica’s racy ads depict what a clean diet and lifestyle can do for your figure. Obviously, Jessica’s character on her smash hit series, Vanessa – knows exactly how to work that sexy shape – but in real life, Jessica favors more demure looks. She proved that at the recent launch of her ad campaign in a black and white striped Alice + Olivia minidress. Although the hemline hits the actress above the knee, the elbow-length sleeves keep things sweet and feminine. Keep that in mind when shopping for your own warm weather looks. Even though we’re all excited to bring out our most skin-bearing pieces once the days get a little longer, it’s important to remember to keep your outfits balanced.
Jessica keeps her look colorful here with a pop of pink in the form of her borderline-neon peep toe pumps. We love a jolt of color in an all black and white outfit – especially this bright pink in the middle of January. If you’re looking to update your black and white looks for spring, shop for bright accessories like colorful bracelets or shoes, like Jessica did with her look here.
