“Trend wise, we’re seeing a lot of earth tones [this year]. Vix is doing a whole tribal collection,” said Nicole Catanzano, manager of Manhasset boutique Inside the Armoire. “A lot of the one-pieces are doing classic silhouettes but with modern takes, so they have rosettes, they have hardware on them, they have V-necks.
