Fashion: Rev Up Spring
Drive full-force with the FIAT 500 into spring’s colorful mix of dressed-up heels, chunky accessories, feminine tailored jackets and fashionable tights — all in shades inspired by nature.
Take on spring in its must-have hue — Kelly green. Serena wears a green lambskin leather zipper jacket by Anveglosa with beaded necklaces by Jeffrey Smith, a crush aqua leaf tank by David Cline and white crop pants by Ecru (all from Carabella). Her green Sydney patent-leather heels by Marc Fisher are from Macy’s. Alyssa wears a knit shrug over a white lace yolk top and crop pants with a cuff by Donna Degnan (from Carabella); her beaded necklace is by Jeffrey Smith (from Carabella), and her hibiscus and French taupe patent Paulina sling-back heels by Saks Fifth Avenue are from Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th. The car: 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth in Rosso Red.
Alyssa’s black button-down blouse and dark-blue skinny jeans are accessorized with a leopard-print clutch, skinny leopard-print leather belt, gold bracelets and gold cuff (by and from Banana Republic). Her mushroom crystal snakeskin peep-toe heels are by Stuart Weitzman (from Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th). The cars: (left) 2013 FIAT 500 Pop Hatchback in Azzurro; (right) 2013 FIAT 500C Pop Cabrio in Luce Blu.
Shot on location at Baierl Fiat in Wexford, the eco-efficient FIAT 500 is a safe subcompact that delivers a combined fuel economy of 30-mpg or higher. One of its most unique features is the Eco Drive system, which monitors driving habits and shows how efficiency can improve via a thumb drive that plugs into the car’s USB port.
With fold-down back seats, the storage space is the perfect place to kick up your heels. Pink heels by Nine West feature rainbow detailing and are paired with sunglow opaque tights by HUE; tomato-red and ocean-blue ankle-strap heels by Jessica Simpson are paired with gypsy-rose opaque tights by HUE (all from Macy’s). The car: 2013 FIAT 500 Pop Hatchback in Giallo.
