Trench Coat

The frayed tweed and leather sleeves give the classic style a downtown spin. Equally perfect for throwing over a cocktail dress in the evening or pairing with a white shirt and jeans when running errands.

Style It With

Play off the black and white tweed in the jacket and opt for sleek jeans and a loose, sporty tank. Finish with pointed-toe slingbacks and a structured bag.

Shift Dress

A classic shift dress never goes out of style. Layer this printed version under a blazer while the weather is still warm, then over tights and a black turtleneck come fall.

Style It With

Put a polished spin on '60s-chic by pairing the mod shift with a white jacket, leather backpack, flat sandals and cat-eye glasses.

Leather Jacket

The quintessential transitional jacket looks fresh in bright white. Wear in late summer with denim cutoffs and a tee, then team with all black when temperatures start to drop.

Style It With

An edgy motorcycle jacket looks great with ladylike separates. Try pairing yours with a knitted, graphic pencil skirt, cropped sweater and fun accessories.

Little Black Dress

The perfect little black dress; versatile, chic and effortless. Pair with heels and chandelier earrings for date night, or ankle boots and a biker jacket for a girl's night out.

Style It With

A little black dress provides the perfect canvas for experimenting with accessories. Why not mix a tortoiseshell clutch, sleek, gold jewelry, and tough-girl pumps?
