Runway Style

Today, we're tweaking our Shop Your Closet format just a touch and dedicating the entire story to a single collection: 3.1 Phillip Lim. In the approximately four years since Lim launched his eponymous company, we've come to depend on his hugely wearable and delightfully understated designs. Whether it's a thoughtfully executed coat or an incredibly adaptable dress, each season is a treasure trove of wardrobe gems and invariably full of those go-to pieces you pull out again and again. In addition to giving us the expected assortment of outfit essentials, this spring Lim kicked off his show with a head-to-toe must-try look. The foundation of this ensemble was relatively simple: a black pair of pegged trousers and a shoulder-emphasizing, structured, white blouse. Most of you probably have some version of these key items already; though if you don't, or just want to update your basics, try Elizabeth and James' Kingstone Trousers ($329) with either 3.1 Phillip Lim's Origami Sleeve Blouseicon ($310) or Plastic Island's Bubble Hem Blouse ($70).

Once you've solidified the base of your outfit with these pieces, it's time to add a little flair with a few trendy accessories. Obviously the standout item in this look is the amazing gold-trim vest, which is totally band-geek chic. Frogged outerwear appeared on numerous runways this season
