When fresh spring styles begin to deliver during January and February, it’s truly a warm breeze in an otherwise wintery landscape. The best part is that you don’t have to wait for the cherry blossoms to bloom to slip these looks right off the hanger and into your wardrobe.
LANVIN METALLIC SHEATH DRESS AND TINSEL COAT
We love the effortless glamour of this collarless tinsel-fringed coat over the gold- and silver-blend lamé dress—the clean lines let the light-catching textural combo shine. The sheath silhouette is understated and flattering, while the draped knot at the front adds interest.
SIES MARJAN PALE BLUE PLEATS
We haven’t stopped thinking about this icy blue pleated midi skirt since it breezed down the runway during Sies Marjan‘s kaleidoscopic show last September. We’ll be styling it with chunky pastel knits and boots until the mercury rises and we can pair it with a camisole.
OFF-WHITE FRENCH TERRY JUMPSUIT
Nothing says off-duty confidence like rocking a French terry jumpsuit—and when it’s got Off-White embroidered on the chest you know you’re in charge. With its red, white, and navy colorblocking, belted waist, and pockets, this might just be our new weekend uniform.
NINA RICCI CROCHET MIDI-DRESS
There are so many ways to wear this gorgeous bordeaux-hued Nina Ricci dress with grommet-embellished fishnet overlay. At NYFW, we’ll layer it over a black turtleneck and wear with tights and platforms. Come spring, it’ll make a fabulous gala dress when worn with strappy sandals and a sharp blazer.
PUBLIC SCHOOL JUMPSUIT AND SEERSUCKER TOP
A jumpsuit can be fun and fresh year-round, and the deep V and adjustable straps makes this wide leg version from Public School super versatile. While we might wait until warmer days to sport this adorable seersucker top with asymmetric raw-edge ruffle underneath, anything from a slim turtleneck to a buttondown will look playful and polished in the meantime.
SAINT LAURENT GOLD MINISKIRT
The quickest solution to winter doldrums? This Saint Laurent gold lame miniskirt with an oversized bow. Style it with a sheer blouse and blazer; wear it with a T-shirt while flaunting bare legs. Wear it with just about anything and you’re bound to heat things up.
BALENCIAGA STRIPED COTTON SHIRT
We love a classic piece with a twist, so this blue, striped, convertible buttondown shirt from Balenciaga is a no-brainer. It can be worn as as long sleeves or as cape sleeves, and its versatility doesn’t end there. We’ll be wearing it with everything from cropped denim to structured miniskirts and everything in between.
DRIES VAN NOTEN FLORAL CREPE DRESS
There’s something we just adore about a midi dress in the winter. This Dries Van Noten crepe dress will make it through the cold days by styling it with over-the-knee boots and an oversized blazer until the weather is warm enough to really show off the black fishnet at the yoke.
CEDRIC CHARLIER CROP TOP AND FAUX LEATHER SKIRT
The effortless way Cedric Charlier plays with contrasts—like hard and soft; sporty and ladylike—is perfectly captured in this playful crop top/midi skirt combo. The bold won’t be afraid to bare their midriff well before spring’s warm rays.
VICTORIA BECKHAM GAUZE WRAP DRESS
This smocked gauze wrap dress from Victoria Beckham makes us want to embrace textural winter whites in a big way. Toughen up the look with a leather moto jacket (we’re thinking this pale pink one from Acne).
