MUST HAVE SS'18: Flawless gowns and sophisticated separates by Carolina Herrera

Already celebrated for her personal style, Carolina Herrera established her eponymous label in 1980, creating flawless gowns and sophisticated separates.

This Carolina Herrera jacket features a notch collar, flap pockets, and floral embroidery and embellishment throughout.

An exuberant spirit ran through Carolina Herrera’s Resort 2018 collection, demonstrated by the oversized bright-yellow floral-embellished pink grosgrain belt of this cornflower-blue dress. It's crafted in the USA from lightweight silk-chiffon. Standout style features include ruffled trim along the neckline and seams – above and below the waistband panel. The flowing skirt falls to the floor, making it ideal for summer weddings – just add a satin clutch.

Carolina Herrera's light-blue silk-faille halterneck gown is a show-stopping choice for evening events. Crafted in the USA, it's shaped with a slender bodice using internal bonding to define the waist, before plunging to the floor in dense pleats that showcase the black and yellow floral pattern to full effect. White organza lining completes the look, ensuring a smooth sense of movement. Save it for a special occasion, styled with statement earrings.

The structured form of this Carolina Herrera gown is balanced by a bold pattern – note that this is a demure version of a style from the SS18 runway. It’s crafted from blush-pink cotton covered in canary-yellow circles and features a neat, point collar and bracelet-length sleeves, while the full skirt falls to a floor-skimming hem. Style it with a chic updo and minimal accessories to ensure a grand entrance at formal events.
