We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!
So what if it's not actually spring yet? Right now is the best time of the season to buy the best new spring dresses. For one thing, they're still in stock. For another, after all that winter-appropriate black, bright colors and lighter fabrics feel just perfect. We polled our favorite New York City boutiques to get their top picks for the upcoming season.
2. Rag & Bone Dress at OTTE: Sophia Hyacinthe's top pick is Rag & Bone's powerhouse "Lafone" beige-and-black dress, which is part of the shop's Runway Wish List collection. "This dress has three trends in one," says Hyacinthe. "It's sheer, which feels right for spring because it has a sweet and airy feel to it. Underwear-as-outerwear is another big trend for spring — here you can see that the top has a very bra-like look to it. And the strategic color block emphasizes and minimizes all the right things." The dress is $625 and will be available at Otte in mid-March. Otte, 121 Greenwich Ave., 212-229-9424, otteny.com; plus other locations
