I’m a big fan of Donna Karan and little sister line DKNY. Just when you think you have her all figured out, Donna reinterprets a classic in a whole new direction, setting fashion on its ear yet again. For spring 2010, DKNY sent urban necessities down the runway with infusions of bright color and a vibrant garden of florals and sequin embellishment. While I encourage everyone to check out the entire line, I’ve got a quick thrill from her runway basics that you need to get your hands on right now: the DKNY Smoothie.
Basically, this is shapewear that’s mean to be seen. You know how you’re always trying to hide your shapewear from public view? No more! These fitted bodyshapers are made in vibrant bursts of color that are intended to peek out from under your clothes as part of your total look. Layer them under shorts, make modesty more interesting by adding them under your favorite skirt or just wear the longer version as pants! They’re versatile and a little slice of genius. No one has to KNOW they’re shapewear, by the way. Layered properly, they just become part of your look. Only you and your waistline will know the difference.
These fabulous bodyshapers are available in three silhouettes (Short, Hi-Waist Short and Capris) and in seven smoothie inspired colors: Sugar Free (nude), Blackberry (black), Raspberry, Orange Crush, Kiwi, Blueberry and Berry Burst. This wardrobe secret weapon retails for just $15.00 and is now available in the hosiery department at a major department store near you. Get your hands on these fun items for spring to transform your look in a whole new way.
