What do you wear to the market?
A once-in-a-lifetime June market hosts a summery take on market dress-up with cheerful colors taking precedence over basic black, dresses in favor of pants (except for Kurt Jacob Miller), and cute sneakers as dress shoes. choices associated with everything. And at the heart of these choices is the sense of self, because all the trendy items tell us more about the wearer.
Kabriah Asha, Kabria Asha Art: “Sometimes I feel like people can’t look at me and say I’m an artist. These earrings are not only a show stopper, but they also introduce me before I show up. With these earrings instead of people asking “what are you doing?” They will ask, “Are you an artist? first.
Lisa Mende, Lisa Mende Design: “When I pack for the High Point Spring Market, I always like to pick up dresses. Dresses are easy because you can put on a pair of tennis shoes or mules and have a complete outfit. This dress comes from Farm Rio and happens to be one of my favorite right now, so I’m sure it will do the trick. My goal is to always plan ahead – five outfits that I can quickly put on every morning and be right on my date’s doorstep. Dresses can carry you from morning to night, so they’re still my go-to choice for the market where work days can turn into fun dinners.
Autumn Pochiro, Autumn Dawn Design: “One of my favorite things to wear in the summer is a maxi dress with pockets! This floral print and bright, bold color brings so much energy when worn. I love the way the fabric swings on a maxi; it can be casual bohemian or dress up with a nice jacket. Roopa Pemmaraju made this dress for Anthropologie. And this adorable, overrated necklace – I picked it up from the cashiers along with a few of my favorite ladies from the design family on a recent trip.
Kurt Jacob Miller, Jacob Lukas Design: “I’m known for my colorful blazers, and this lightweight Italian blazer from ISAIA is a favorite (plus I wore it four years ago when I first met Jane Dagmi. at LCDQ in LA). I collect antique lapel pins and this diamond and gold victorian accentuates the classic blue a bit, as does the luminous clutch.
Cheryl Luckett, Dwell by Cheryl: “For me this year’s market wardrobe is all about the excitement of having a reason to get dressed and the comfort we’ve grown used to over the past year. . I hug both of them shamelessly so give me all the cute girly dresses and comfy sneakers please! I love saturated colors and this sunny Kate Spade eyelet number had my name written on it. Not to mention, optimistic orange seemed to be hitting just the right note in terms of how I’m feeling lately.
Lauren Clement, Lauren Nicole Designs: “Green is my favorite color. It just makes me happy, reminds me of beautiful endless fields of grass to gallop through. My creations are inspired by nature and my childhood in the equestrian world. When I found this Sofia peasant dress at a local boutique, I knew I wanted to wear it to the Market. Paired with the natural woven earrings, this outfit perfectly represents my design style. Texture, color, style, all wrapped up in a comfortable silhouette that will make my day at the market both enjoyable and enjoyable, my exact feelings for my design projects.
Shayla Copas, Shayla Copas Interiors: “I will be at the High Point Market to present the products of my collection with Chelsea House. Because so many products are fashion inspired, I like to accentuate the product line with my wardrobe. I will definitely be carrying my Chanel coral handbag! The chain link strap actually influenced the honeycomb details that are depicted in my products. Since I was a “color girl”, I love the bright coral color accented by the gold hardware. Plus, it’s the perfect size to carry everything I need for a day at the market.
Keia McSwain, Kimberly + Cameron Interiors: “My new Odsy 1000 sneakers are my new must-haves for Summer Market. They inaugurate shades of powder pink perfectly associated with gray and black. They can almost be worn with anything. I try to associate them with dresses even if they are rather pretty with jeans. These are my new favorites. My Hanifa Soraya mini dress sets the tone for a front row seat! With wine and white complementing each other perfectly, to create a sexy pattern set, I couldn’t ask for a better dress. The sleeves will keep me warm inside buildings and the length balances the piece for the season.
