Rachel Sciaba, the owner of Duchess in Newton, on dressing for spring.
What’s the one spring item already in your wardrobe that you can’t wait to dig out?
My Tory Burch wedges. They are open-toe. I’m sick of boots, and the cork screams summer.
What spring pieces will you buy this year?
We just got this White + Warren cashmere cardigan (below, $220). I’m in love with the color; it’s gorgeous and turquoise. It has elbow-length sleeves, and it’s cropped in the back – perfect to throw over a white T-shirt or a white tank top and awesome with white pants, jeans, or shorts. Something I’ve already purchased for myself is a Weston Wear navy rayon tunic. Put it over leggings or skinny jeans. It’s such an interesting piece.
What spring trend are you most excited about?
I love the colors I’m seeing. A lot of blues are coming back, variations on blue like turquoise and violet. I’m not a pastel girl, I like the way really saturated blues pop.
