Derek Lam – Haircalf Jacket with Vintage Leather Sleeves
The unexpected mix of patterned calf hair and luxe leather makes this über chic. A permanent piece in any wardrobe.
Thakoon – Breakaway Leather Leggings
The perfect leather pant is hard to come by. I love the rich, matte finish of this pair.
3.1 Phillip Lim – Tie Front Henley Blouse
A modern take on the classic blouse. From jeans to skirts, it adds a sense of polish to any outfit.
Alexander Wang – Kasia Whipstitch Wedge Sandals
The pitch of the wedge is completely manageable, and I love the texture of the whipstitch detailing.
Giuseppe Zanotti Shoes – Tapered Toe Pumps
Giuseppe Zanotti is the master of the pump. I love this variation in stark white—an important color for the season.
Parker – Floral Cami Dress
I love the contrast of a flirty floral frock paired with something a little tougher, like a leather jacket and a strong shoe.
