  • The genius of a navy blazer is that it looks polished without taking itself too seriously. Perhaps it’s the school uniform origins that make it feel a little less businesslike, but regardless, this J.Crew iteration is perfect for pairing with everything from your weekend jeans to your tweed pencil skirts.

  • The Jeans

    Move to the light side, and try a pair in this bright wash. The Olsens know a thing or two about being ahead of the curve, so invest in this pair from their line, The Row, and you’ll be set for the rest of the year we promise.

  • The Makeup

    As bright and fun as a red pout, but a little less expected, the new orange lip will be everywhere this spring. We can’t wait to pair this YSL version with our beloved bateau stripes and chambray shirts.

  • The Bag

    Structured, ladylike bags are still big for S/S 14, but require some punchy prints to make it feel fresh. This very affordable option from Brian Atwood is equal parts versatility and spunk.

  • The Shoe

    Mules are big for S/S 14 (just ask Stella McCartney, Chanel, Chloe, and Altuzarra), so get a jumpstart on the trend by investing in this gorgeous pair from Alexander Wang.

  • The Jewelry

    The quickest and coolest way to update all of your stud earrings is by picking up a pair of earring jackets. Already seen on Jessica Alba, the style adds a little extra interest to everyday studs by peeking out from under your ear lobe.

  • The Underpinnings

    There is something about matching underwear that makes one feel a little more pulled together. We love the rich berry hue of this Araks set.
