THE SILK UTILITY SHIRT
We’ve taken this blue-collar look to the boardroom by mixing utility-style pockets and detailing with a refined silhouette in sensuous silk. We love our Silk Utility Shirt worn with a smart skirt and layered under a sweater. For casual Fridays and weekends, pair it with colored denim — a little more dressy than a T-shirt and blue jeans.
THE REFINED PENCIL SKIRT
There’s nothing quite as sharp as a sculpted pencil skirt. This season, we offer several styles, including the Favorite Pencil Skirt in twill or tweed, the Seamed Knit Pencil Skirt for a bold striped statement, and the Scroll Lace Pencil Skirt with a touch of feminine flair. We love it paired with a sumptuous cashmere sweater.
A TOUCH OF LACE
Lace gives any piece a flirty, vintage-inspired, feminine quality. It looks great along the edge of a skirt, gracing the front of a camisole, or all over a dress. This delightful detail instantly elevates a basic, making it a bit dressier for the office or an evening out, and used in an unexpected way, like on the Novelty Lace Top, it can instantly modernize and transform a knit essential.
THE FAUX-WRAP DRESS
The knit dress is a wardrobe workhorse. It’s an instant outfit: just add the right shoes and accessories and go. The Brianna Knit Dress makes a bold statement with its timeless faux-wrap detailing, and it’s offered in geometric dots, ocelot print, and basic black, giving it three very different looks. We recommend a chunky wedge and a colorful leather bag for a look that’s workday-to-weekend wonderful.
THE CASUAL RIDING JACKET
Our twist on the classic navy blazer, this exclusive design melds equestrian styling with a polished put-together look to make it earn its place in every girl’s closet. In light tropical wool and a tailored shape, it looks equally refined over jeans and a casual cotton shirt as it does with dresses.
THE CLASSIC CASHMERE CARDIGAN
Cashmere is a great sweater option — it’s exquisitely soft and completely seasonless. It’s an ideal weight for air-conditioned offices and it’s a great layer to keep handy as the weather changes. The Retro Cashmere Cardigan is such a versatile option; it’s clean and classic, and looks great layered over a T-shirt or over a dressy dress. For the office, we also recommend the Cashmere Elbow-Sleeve Sweater and other pieces from our cashmere collection.
THE SCULPTED WEDGE
If we had to pick a shoe style that balances comfort, height, and style, we would have to choose the wedge. From ankle-strap wedges to studded wedges to wedge sandals — there are so many shapes to choose from, and we love the height and stability they provide. They’re like art for your feet! This season, we especially like the contoured look of the London Suede Wedge; it’s a design you can wear right now and into fall.
THE COVERTIBLE BAG
Carry it as a clutch, keep it in hand as a tote, or sling it over your shoulder with the removable strap — when it comes to handbags, versatility is a huge value for the professional on the go. Made in Italy, the Sofia Convertible Leather Bag is the consummate professional and a quick-change artist on the go — and it’s available in neutral hues and bold fashion colors.
