We know style-savvy readers turn to Indulge to discover what’s new, what’s haute and where to find it all. So, we worked our connections this month, going directly to the source of the trends — the designers themselves. Here, five top fashion influencers reveal what they’re loving — and wearing — this season.

Edward Wilkerson

Lafayette 148 New York

“I absolutely love all-white for spring. Other must-haves for this season are lightweight suede in any style and a maxi dress for a refined take on bohemian.”

Rachel Zoe

“A gorgeous pair of strappy heels is essential for spring. I obviously love a platform and am obsessed with the lugged-sole Harlin sandals from my Spring 2015 collection. The gold rings and woven leather are edgy yet polished — the perfect balance to a feminine frock or cool pair of leather leggings.“

“Jewelry is always an important accessory no matter the season. During the spring, I have a tendency to layer it on — earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings — I love it all!“

“I think every woman needs at least one maxi dress in her closet, and I particularly love a print for the spring. Styled with a tailored jacket and open sandals, it becomes an effortlessly glamorous ensemble.”

Nicole Musselman


“The three pieces I’ll be living in the next six months are the Mykonos Top, which I love paired with faded jeans and stilettos or our white Twiggy Shorts for the updated version of a two-piece suit. I always grab one of every one of our sweaters — I can’t take them off, day and night. I’m crazy about our hand-drawn Zodiac Shirts, especially to surprise my best friends with for gifts.”

Elaine Turner

“Spring is about relaxed luxury, about sophistication, simplicity and function. I was inspired by Marfa and Sedona, by earth tones and the colors of the Southwest, of the sunset. It’s about beautiful silk and supple leather and creating quality pieces that function for you, with minimal hardware and simple, chic details. Like the Joey, which can be worn as a shoulder bag or converted into a backpack, or the Bella clutch, which speaks to the colors in the Sedona collection. I am also loving python — our silk Trista dress is easy, chic and unstructured and completely versatile.”

Christian Siriano

For spring, I was inspired by glass sculptures by Sergio Redegalli, and my must-haves are ladylike details and bold, oversized prints.
