Whimsy

We have the Aussies behind everyone’s favorite brand Zimmermann to thank for providing us with a plethora of dreamy designs and delicate yet detailed prints each season. When it comes to whimsical dressing, you can find everything from two-piece matching sets perfect for a vacation to dresses you can wear from work to cocktail hour. It’s all about dainty detailing and sophisticated femininity. Shop my favorite whimsical pieces for spring (and beyond) below.

Suiting

Every season we see a fresh take on menswear dressing, designers always find a way to reinvent the traditional pant and blazer set making it a must-have year-round. Tibi never fails in the suiting department with its signature tailoring and use of unexpected and eye-catching colors. Shop my favorite suiting pieces below.

Bold Silhouettes

This category is reserved for the shopper looking for a statement piece and who isn’t afraid to wear a bold look. The masterminds behind Attico have this trend nailed down, bringing us bold silhouettes season after season. The bigger the shoulder the better and the most exaggerated neckline wins this spring.
