The Perfect Jean

A figure-flattering jean is an essential component of every woman's wardrobe. Try a high-waisted, wide-legged indigo pair for an of-the-moment look.

The Tailored Trench

We've long extolled the virtues of a good trench (allow our EIC to remind you here). Assuming you already have a trusty style, why not opt for this spring's sleeveless version?

Style with: A poplin shirt and pencil skirt.

Valencia Sandals

The Versatile Heel

We keep a pair of heels stashed under our desks too, but owning a versatile pair that takes you from day to night (without pain) is a surefire sign you've hit your style stride. Try a leg-lengthening mule with a comfortable wedge heel this spring.

Style with: Culottes or a midi skirt and crop top.

Lace-Paneled Gingham Cotton Blend Twill Mini Dress

$905

The Printed Dress

If printed dresses had a catchphrase it would be "big impact, minimal effort." Try a shift in gingham—one of this season's hottest prints—to inject new life into your look.
