I know that we still have a long way to go before spring, so I decided to have some transitional looks - items that you can buy now and wear all throughout spring, summer, and fall (mostly classics but some trendy stuff too!).
Since I've had soo much schoolwork I hadn't checked my email in awhile and as soon as America Online greeted me with "You've Got Mail!" I saw that I had mail from both Barney's and J. Crew, two of my favorite stores! Here are some amazing clothes that can be worn through rain or shine!
This Proenza Schouler embroidered dress would look amazing with colored tights (winter's hottest trend) and pumps or bright colored tights and yes, no tights, but bare legs during spring and summer - an upcoming trend.
Upcoming fashion is to the extremes - either flats or sky high stilletos. Here are some adorable flats that are oh-so casual.
I adore these bright pink Marc Jacobs ballet flats! To die for!
And these practical but cute Chloe padlock button ballet flats. (The it-shoe for spring!)
J. Crew has really been stepping up its game - adding all sorts of dresses and trendy items to their classic spin on clothing. I adore every single outfit from the new "J. Crew Look Book" online - you should definitely go to jcrew.com and check it out! The sequins on this cream dress make it look so expensive and with black wool tights and a cashmere wrap for winter with bare legs and flip flops for summer, what could go wrong?
These two looks from Nanette Lepore are absolutely stunning - lady like and reserved yet outgoing with a party-girl flair. I adore!
The stitching on this little white cream shrug is so delicate and beauutiful - and the big trapeze pants make a dramatic, elegant statement. ^^
Skinny jeans, an elegant top that is sort-of loose with silver stitching and a silver flower - very modern yet very Audrey.
And who could go through any season without a bag? Here are two amazing, gorgeous bags that are still practical through any weather or season.
This metallic YSL bag is stunning - if I had $1500 I'd buy it in a heartbeat!
Lately, white leather bags have been all the rage with everyone in New York City (as well as many celebs! If you pick up this issue of Style Watch People Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton both sport one). I usued to think they were tacky until I saw this Valentino Flap Hobo Bag...
This nautical classic look from J. Crew will never, ever go out of style! I absolutely love the parka-esque coat with skinny, fresh jeans and a striped navy and white top - just so American Chic.
And lastly, this bright red coat makes the whole outfit pop!
Stay Chic through all your adventures - Rain or Shine!,
Chic in the City <3
