Mini Zip-Top Bowling Bag
1. The Statement Bag
Looking to embrace this season's boldest bag trend? Invest in a print less likely to go out of style, like leopard.
Leather Biker Jacket
2. The Leather Jacket
Everyone needs a timeless leather jacket in their closet. The more splurge-worthy, the higher the quality. You want your leather to last forever.
Cable Knit Sweater
3. The Oversized Knit
An oversized knit is a must for chillier days during a wardrobe transition. Wear it now with jeans and suede booties then layer it with leather come wintertime.
Arboretum Jacquard Full Skirt
4. The Full Skirt
A full skirt looks equally as chic paired with a cropped sweater and booties as it does with a silk tank and pumps. Consider it your office-to-evening dream piece.
5. The Black Booties
Pair these transitional booties with everything from printed dresses to skinny jeans. As a glam extra, their gold-plated heel adds a dressed-up touch to any off-duty look.

MICHAEL Michael Kors
6. The Menswear Watch
Jewelry trends may come and go, but an oversized, menswear-inspired watch is eternally cool in our book.
Brett Silk Shirt in Nature White
7. The Silk Shirt
Made for both work and play, this crisp silk shirt goes great with just about everything.
8. The Everyday Sunnies
While we adore a good statement pair, this classic colorway and style should be kept on-hand at all times—all season long.
Low-Slung Boyfriend Jeans
9. The Weekend Jeans
Every woman needs a roomy pair of jeans they can comfortably run errands in. Then, dress up for a night out if needed.
Medium Chain Shoulder Bag
10. The Day-To-Night Bag
Fashioned in a daytime-friendly hue and subtly dressed-up with a gold chain strap, this luxe crossbody bag reflects the best of both worlds.
11. The Tailored Trousers
Give your office attire an on-trend update via these cool cropped trousers. The best part about them: just add an ankle-strap heel and structured crop top for post-work cocktails.
Pave Stacking Rings

Delicate pave stacking rings are a timeless way to accessorize without putting much thought into it. Splurging on a style rendered in real gold will assure your piece never tarnishes.
Backless Ponte Wrap Dress
13. The LBD
A LBD goes a long way. Invest in one on-trend style as your go-to for last minute events. By mixing up your accessories, your dress will look completely different every time you wear it out.
14. The 'Wear Anywhere' Sandals
A simple sandal like these sky-high stunners can be worn with virtually anything, any time of day.
Sleeveless Striped Muscle Tee
15. The Striped Tee
