6 Designers Whose Spring Styles We Envy


They send designs worth drooling over down the runway each season, but their own ensembles are a source of fashion envy in themselves. It’s our Glam stylish six—a handful of clothing creators whose personal looks we love just as much as the brands they’ve built. This season, we’re crushing on ladies who keep things light and luxurious, perfect for the warm weather.

Tory Burch
The always sophisticated Burch is often seen in ladylike suits, feminine frocks, and other styles that take a modern twist on seemingly Old World design. She’s a lover of color and prints—we adore how she incorporates spring flair into her wardrobe with floral accents and lighter hues.

Jenna Lyons
Lyons, the creative director of J.Crew, is the coolest girl in the fashion industry, with her oversize frames, bright lipstick, and impeccably tailored, creatively paired ensembles. As the weather warms up, we know we’ll be seeing more of this style maven in standout heels paired with printed pants, a pencil skirt, or ankle-skimming jeans, completed with a tucked-in top.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The creators of multiple successful clothing lines, most notably The Row and Elizabeth & James, the Olsen twins are not only talented designers, they’ve also made names as style icons. The sisters are masters of the “effortlessly chic” look, and we’ll be channeling their minimalistic spring style by mixing proportions and shapes—maxiskirts with slim tanks, skinny trousers with oversize tops—and making statements with one-of-a-kind accessories.

Carolina Herrera
Always a vision of classic femininity, Herrera most often flaunts variations of ladylike separates, silk and satin trousers or skirts, billowing blouses, and tailored button-downs. Just like the luxurious collections she produces, her own style reflects elegance and sophistication from a different time. Though most of her wardrobe consists of smart neutrals, she is known to celebrate the warmer season with soft floral prints and bright hues.

Rachel Roy
Roy’s fun, flirty fashion choices are reminiscent of the clothes she creates. She’s constantly one to surprise us with her style: Her spring wardrobe can go from a retro denim jumpsuit to a chic printed dress to a classic jeans and blazer look.
