Color Block Top – $69.50
Color-block is back! The eighties saw a lot of color-blocking love which then went away faster than you can say Wham!
But now designers are showing lots of color blocking in dresses, handbags, and tops. This top can transition from day to evening and workday to weekend. Pair with jeans for a relaxed look, or a pencil skirt for a professional occasion.
Modern Sleek A Line Skirt – $79.50
A-line skirts tend to be flattering on a wide range of body types. This one is nice and slim; you’ll notice the flair at the bottom isn’t overdone, so you won’t feel like you’re at a square-dance. Available in lots of sizes, and colors black and grey. Do-si-do!
Sailor Short – $49.50
Yes, the wild card pick. But how sassy are these cute shorts with four buttons running vertically up each hip? Yellow screams ducks, daffodils, and all things spring. If you’re not feeling quite brave enough to try out this color, they’re also available in white. Wear with simple sandals or flats, plus a light sweater on cool days, or a tank top on warmer days.
Mod Graphic Wrap Dress – $130.00
This is the priciest pick of the bunch. It’s got several things going for it: first, it’s a wrap style dress, which is proving to be a classic silhouette. Second, it’s black and white, so you can dress it up, dress it down, and it will never seem dated in your closet. Third–it looks like an M.C. Escher painting! Delightful. For those craving color after the dreary winter months, it’s also available in berry.
Soft Wash Pintuck Mini Stripe Shirt – $59.50
Pintucks are small folds sewn into fabric. In the shirt above you can see that they line alongside the buttons. They add texture and interest to an otherwise basic shirt. Wear with jeans, dress slacks, or a simple skirt. Keep jewelry around the neck simple so that it doesn’t compete with the texture of the pintucks.
Logan Fit Slim Ankle Pant – $79.50
These beauties are a wool and spandex blend, which makes them comfortable and decently warm. But, they also stop at the ankle, so they’re not prohibitively toasty. This makes them great for spring’s tumultuous weather–warm, cool, dry, wet. The Logan fit is nice for the modern woman (the Martin fit always seems to ride high on the torso like Grandpa’s trousers) who wants a bit of breathing room in the tummy. Wear with any height heel and a crisp Oxford shirt or buttoned up cardigan for a classic look.
