Spring Investment Pieces
It’s been scientifically proven that the act of shopping provides your body with a surge of happy endorphins, and why wouldn’t it? Whether you’re pining over sleek suiting from Rejina Pyo, or have bookmarked everything from Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s first collection for Chloé, the new spring season has plenty to offer in terms of heart-pumping buys.
Belt bags have never been chicer. Whether you wear one slung around your waist or across the body, it allows you to move about unencumbered. This season, invest in a bright color to pack an editorial punch.
Make It A Mule
The mule became every fashion girl’s staple a few seasons ago, and it’s definitely not going anywhere. Look for styles in bold hues and special details, like Attico’s flattering sweetheart front.
For a great color pop, look to red. Flattering every skin tone, we’re not surprised that it is the color of the season. If a head-to-toe ensemble is a little scary, opt for a silk blouse in a traditional silhouette. We selected one from the cult favorite, Gucci.
Pastel suiting was undoubtedly one of the biggest trends in the streets and on the runways. Up-and-coming label Rejina Pyo’s wide legged version is a fresh twist on a traditional silhouette.
Just like an Little Black Dress, almost nothing beats a black handbag—except maybe a black bag with a twist. Rather than the usual tote, look for unusual shapes still roomy enough to carry your essentials. This Loewe shoulder bag has just the added flair we’re looking for.
Pastel suiting may be a street style favorite, but nothing beats a traditional checked blazer like this one by Joseph. Pair with a t-shirt and jeans or a basic, solid-colored trouser. Or, pull a power lady move and select a matching set. Either trousers or a skirt will do the trick for a complete look.
In recent years Chloé has been known for its handbags, and new creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s first collection for the French fashion house delivered one of our new favorites—a classic chain handle with a twist. A upgrade from the now iconic Drew collection, it’s classic and then some.
It Made In The Shade
Although a wise purchase given the bright desert rays, sunglasses might be the last thing on your must-have list, but this season they took center stage. Small, cat eye sunglasses were the look du jour, and remain the hottest shades to add to your look.
