Black & White Minimalism, Soft Silouhettes, Airy Blouses, Nude & Gray. (By JILL STUART.)

Black & White Minimalism, Soft Silouhettes, Airy Blouses, Nude & Gray were Jill Stuart's Signature Moments for the Upcoming Spring & Summer.

I have always loved Jill Stuart as a designer. Her eye for style is minimalistic, fresh, simple yet very modern, easy, cool like a cucumber and definitely sharp. In the 2011 Spring-Summer New York Runway she proved her estetic once again. Her love of Black and White paired together showed, as did her love for the non-color Nude which we see her use very often in the clothes she designs. And whether we saw shiny silk shantung or modern suiting pieces which are more crisp and now, or cutesy blouses featuring birds and leaves or layers of chiffony skirts towards a more feminine and romantic side, just like with Lela Rose, Jill proved that fashion doesn't have to always be about Over-the-Top, because a lot of times LESS IS MORE. 

Below are her gorgeous, polished, chic & simple silouhettes with modern minimalism but maxi-ful of feminity & what would attract every modern woman to go after.

Her shoes (just like you can see above in the last 2 photos) are also very hot: so simple but so modern and pretty. Cool Pumps, Mary Janes & Booties in simple color-blocking done right (black, white, metallic gray & nude.)

Jill's Models were sporting bright orange-coral lipstick and simple buns knotted on top, with small wisps of air sort of flowing around the crown - again, her simplicity showed. I also adored the bright lips: orange, coral and reds were the lip colors used.

I left to show this dress the last because it is my favorite dress of hers in this entire collection. I love it. I want it. LOL Even better that it's a knit.
