HEAD TO TOE CASUAL LOOK

A spring-like week with periodic showers has us opting for stylish yet practical separates.

Our go-to rainy day look revolves around the perfect trench (this A.P.C. version comes pretty close) and our trusty Chuck Taylor high-tops. A Breton striped top is a classic pairing with a trench, but a lightweight ribbed top with bold stripes in primary colors feels au courant and adds a ’70s vibe. For those chillier days at the beginning of the week, layer a thin bomber jacket under your trench like this style by Zara, which we’re dying to give a test drive. Black cropped jeans with a frayed hem create the perfect streamlined backdrop to the rest of the look (see last week’s panegyric musings on this new denim silhouette here). A bright blue bag adds an unexpected pop to the outfit. Stick with just a few pieces of delicate gold jewelry but keep it cheeky like with this “Screw U” necklace by Aamaya by Priyanka.

HEAD TO TOE BENEFIT LOOK

Like clockwork, as the weather gets warmer, the charity benefit invites start to roll in. Now, what to wear to best suit this transitional weather?

Unless you’re going to the Met Gala, find a dress that will take you through the season and can be dressed up or down. For that, we turn to designer Zimmermann. The Australian label's "silk folded dress"––which comes in a variety of colors––is perfect for everything from springtime parties to casual summer dinners. Plus, the cut is extremely flattering. We love it in this floral print that gives a nod to spring’s love affair with all things floral. To add a chic, edgy contrast, pair it with leopard, block-heeled sandals. While we love the ones featured in the image on the right, you can opt for some less expensive options such as these, these, or these. The leopard pony-hair shoes help make this slip-like dress more appropriate for chillier nights. For something less over-the-top, a solid suede sandal could also work. Finish the look off with a cool leather jacket with minimal make-up and jewelry (no necklaces!).

IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY JUST ONE PIECE

Fashion’s love of the “cold shoulder” blouse trend is still going strong. However, this spring we’re going crazy for the “statement sleeve” blouse. Whether it’s a ruffle detail, drop-shoulder style, or an exaggerated bell or balloon shape, a strong-sleeved silhouette feels fresh right now. Plus, it’s the perfect transition piece for early spring weather. We recommend sticking with a fitted bottom to keep the proportions balanced (Think skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.). And your most important accessory for this look is the perfect strapless bra, so head over to the Town Shop to get fitted ASAP (2270 Broadway, b/t 81st and 82nd Sts., townshop.com).
