Mod silhouettes in a fresh ikat are our new favorite uniform for weekend escapes. Light, packable, and ready to mix and match, you can pair these with black separates for a day in the office before jetting to your favorite escape. With a chic sandal and swinging mini bag, this tunic and trouser combo has us thinking of Jackie O. in the Greek isles—just add oversized shades of course!

Up the sweetness factor for your Mother’s Day fête with a clean shift dress in rosy hot pink. A staple in any wardrobe, our classic Carrie is back in bright hues that will last all season for work-to-weekend dressing. We love pairing this shift with a peekaboo lace jacket to show off the color, plus a clean white pump and a modern envelope clutch–it’ll leave your hands free for flowers and gifts!

Leave your dreamcatchers, flower crowns, tiny tots and wearable geodes at home this year. With a musical (and culinary) lineup that’s as eclectic and impressive as it’s ever been, nothing should distract you from the godliest of activities: dancing (and singing along).
The only garment any seasoned festival-goer should wear is a wrap (w)romper. Easy, short, cool: you’re not only dressed for the weather (sweltering) but also for the occasion (awesome). You’ll never worry about a wardrobe malfunction or an accessorizing disaster because everything goes with it. Sneakers — particularly our crocheted cutie — aren’t too delicate for the terrain but are breathable, and your feet are just the place for an unexpected touch of color. A white 440 crossbody keeps your hands free and is all you need for your essentials (see below) as well as 4-5 raisins and almonds to tide you over ‘til your late-night 5-course meal at the Coachella Rose Garden. Who knows, maybe you can convince loveable and huggable (former chef/current rapper) Action Bronson to woo you culinarily.
Now, for packing. Think practically and bring only the bare necessities with you:
*three extra phone chargers or phones, leopard cases a must
*refillable water bottle (don’t waste a drop: California is in a serious drought)
*horse food (in case you see a rogue polo pony roaming the grounds, which are, after all, polo fields the remaining 50 weeks this year)
*wet wipes (to wipe down whichever set of shoulders you climb onto while Drake performs)
*pink pen and paper to send paper airplane love notes to Vic Mensa and Alison Wonderland while they perform
*a Lomo’Instant camera, for photos that turn into instant calling cards (write your name on the back of each one and see how many suitors you can collect at each gig)
*enormous earphones to block out any unwanted noise as you move from stage to stage
*sunglasses (to wear at night, when it really matters)

Call it spring cleaning–we’ve taken the sleeves off our favorite banded wrap to make one that’s just right for warmer weather. The New Yahzi features a clean neckline, contrast belt, and the sunniest prints of the season. Get the look to go with a petite tote, a Vera heel, and the instant glamour of a great pair of shades. Here comes the sun!

We’re serious about this! Whatever you’re doing right this minute, you could be doing it in the DVF Debbie jean. Casual Friday in the office? Add a soft jacket and great gingham accessories. Out to brunch? Try a breezy Lorelei or a bright peplum top. A deep indigo brings the polish, while a 70’s flare, high waist and logo embroidered pocket are so DVF.

The Lillie gown debuted at a sun-kissed runway show in downtown Manhattan, transformed in canopies of white to evoke a terrace in the South of France. For day, there were sweet gingham separates. For the evening, great lengths of yellow chiffon floated past, ushering in visions of effortless glamour. As April dawns, that summer is finally within reach. As we plan our getaways, we’re dreaming of the Lillie—styled with some gingham of course!

Your go-to wear to work dress, the Bevina is the epitome of weekday chic. Flattering short sleeves and side ruching mean you can leave the blazer at home, and a wide v-neck is perfect for showcasing something shiny and new. Pair this knee-length sheath with a flattering nude pump, and a petite tote for all those workday essentials.

Better late than never, amirite? Finally temperatures in the Frozen Apple constitute something approaching springtime, so we should all mark the occasion by shedding our somber winter layers and running into the streets with as little obstructing our limbs as possible to embark on a multi-month dialogue with the sunshine.
Lace is a wonderfully transitional and celebratory fabric, and cut into a loose, casual shape these long sleeve tops (in a nautical stripe, or green to match the crocuses rearing their little heads) are spring staples for me. Paired with a nautical striped short or our new and deliciously high-waisted kick-flare denim you’ll be the best dressed girl in your neighborhood as everyone else figures out how to adjust their dark winter wardrobe to the newly vibrant surroundings.
Speaking of vibrant, cameras may be the new accessory, but if you can’t take a photo to save your life (like yours truly) just fake it by carrying this very convincing camera clutch. No one will ever know the difference. Add a selfie-stick to complete the ruse.
Sunglasses are a must, even indoors. It means you can more or less roll out of bed, save at least 3 minutes you would otherwise spend covering up last night’s sins and still look cooler than everyone you’re with. Aviators also add a dash of mystery. Maybe you’re really a fighter pilot and haven’t told anyone.
If you’re in the mood to bare those legs (which should be the universal mandate as soon as temperatures rise above 32) this whimsical cotton floral dress is your best friend. Throw a leather jacket over it to punk it up, or a cashmere cardigan to sweeten it up; no matter what mood you’re in, you can always wear it with our new spring sandal. With a low heel so perfectly young, modern and practical you may have to get it in every color. Good news: our store is stocked. Happy spring!

The Davina is truly inspired by life on the beach–Diane calls it the bathing dress, as it channels the woman arriving to dine with a sarong tied over her suit. In a dramatic gown length, the floating Davina brings that je ne said quoi, even away from the sea breeze. Keep accessories bold and sexy: a big gold bangle, the indispensable Vera heel, and a pink After 6 should do the trick!

We can’t say enough about the sweetest print of the season, toile garden pink. This traditional floral shines on the Claire skirt, with contrast paneling that lends just enough edge for the modern lady. We’re nominating the Claire for all the season’s rooftop parties, with an easy silk t-shirt and flirty gingham accessories like the Vera heel, and a chic mini bag.

The Carrie little black dress is ready for business. With a sharp colorblock pump and a graphic clutch, she joins a grand tradition of simple statement chic. The Carrie little white dress can’t wait for a Saturday morning stroll, with a sweet Bea sneaker and a crossbody bag. One flattering shape, in one versatile stretch fabric. The only thing that’s up for debate is which Carrie is more essential.
