    We’re suckers for symmetry. Thus, we love how the V emblem on Fashion Zen blogger Iris Gravemaker’s Ivyrevel Kingston Sweatshirt ($92) mirrors the hemline of her Saline Skirt ($92), also by Ivyrevel. Curious about Gravemaker’s super chic accessories? So were we. She’s wearing Isabel Marant Scarlet Leather, Suede, and Calf Hair Wedge Boots ($1,560) and a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Satchel ($650)

    Kenzo pioneered the envelope mini trend and arguably has the most iterations of the style currently out there. Here, the Eye-Print Leather Mini Skirt ($1,300) meets its match in a sweatshirt also by the label.
