Style Editors' Picks: This season's must-haves
Zimmermann Collector Splice One-piece,
$340; at Zimmermann, 87 Mercer St., 212-226-6440
I usually cringe at the thought of putting on that first swimsuit of the season, but I'd look forward to wearing this unique patchwork style by Zimmermann, which flatters the figure with its diagonal paneling.
Tory Burch Linley Wedges,
$195; at Bloomingdale's
These nautical-inspired wedges by Tory Burch (which are comfortable!) will give a kick of summer to any outfit.
Thakoon for NARS Nail Collection, (Above)
$18 each; at NARS, 413 Bleecker St., 646-459-2323
I can't wait to test out every vibrant, springy color in this brand-new, limited-edition nail polish collection - a collab between beauty fave NARS and bright hue-loving fashion designer Thakoon Panichgul.
H&M Conscious Collection Shorts,
$29.95; at H&M
It hasn't felt like shorts weather this week, but when it comes, this flattering print pair will be a perfect choice. A bonus: The shorts come from H&M's eco-friendly line and are made from 100% recycled materials.
A.P.C. Multicoloured Sailor Top,
$90; at A.P.C., 267 W. 4th St., 212-755-2523
Striped tops - long-sleeved, short-sleeved, tank - are something I can never have enough of, and the fun color combo and lightweight jersey material make this one a definite springtime pick.
$19.95; at H&M
I'm really into a mini crossbody for evening instead of a tired old clutch, and I love the pop of color this adds to neutrals. Oh, and the price tag doesn't hurt.
DIY distressed denim shorts
Denim shorts are a summer staple, but that perfect pair always eludes me. The solution? Each season I grab a pair of old jeans (or pick up a pair from a thrift store), reach for a pair of scissors and create my own. (Tip: jazz up the pocket area with cool cone studs).
Rag & Bone Racine printed silk palazzo pants,
$475; at Net-a-Porter.com
Spotted on Rag & Bone's Spring runway (above), I knew I needed these breezy pants. Extra points for the eye-catching graphical print.
Rebecca Taylor Aristotle maxi skirt,
$575; at Rebecca Taylor, 34 Gansevoort St., 212-243-2600
Tiers of pleated ruffles and an ethereal print add interest to this gorgeous 100% silk skirt.
3.1 Phillip Lim Cody Half F D'Orsay pump,
$595; at 31philliplim.com
I'm all about Phillip Lim's spring/summer footwear, and these silver stunners are chic, on-trend and ultra-flattering.
