Blog_image_perforated

Need a way out of that cold winter slump? We’ve got the ultimate transition pieces to take you straight from winter to spring with ease: trendy and fun perforated cutout shoes.
1. Antonio Melani Peri Casual Flats  – Nothing says spring style like a cute cutout flat in a range of pretty pastels. Not only could you choose the Peri flats in cool hues like Lemon Freeze and Tomato Puree, you can also find an impeccable fit in the classic neutral Marine Navy. Along with the perforated cutouts, the allover delicate jewel details transform these classic flats into a look more than ready to jumpstart springtime.
2. Jessica Simpson Chinah Sandals – The perfect neutral heel – available in Bermuda Pink, Black, and Light Luggage Brown – to kick start the first days of warm weather. The intricate perforated details, in fun triangle and circle shapes, create an elevated on trend look. A slight hidden platform offers additional comfort without sacrificing your style for a night on the town!
3. DV by Dolce Vita Moe Oxfords – Oxfords have an effortless and classic look, but the perforations on the Moe oxfords create a whole new presence. They’re the ultimate casual choice for any fashionista needing a break from her heels, while still putting a little prep in her step.
4. Vince Camuto Okeli Dress Sandals – The Okeli dress sandals are exactly what’s predicted as the next big thing this year. If you’re looking for a new look after a long, cold winter, pair these bronze beauties with your first spring cocktail dress. These dress sandals really have it all: the distinctive three separate straps, the metallic shine, and, of course, those fabulous perforated cutouts.
5. Vince Camuto Kalista Mesh Booties – This elegant bootie is a flawless transition shoe between seasons. Pair the Kalista booties with tights to give the cutouts the opportunity to stand out. For the start of spring, these same unique cutouts will be the essential tool in facing the warmer temperatures while still giving you the perfect amount of coverage.
6. DV by Dolce Vita Edlyn Penny Loafers – Penny loafers are the key to effortlessly mixing both feminine and masculine elements, and the Edlyn loafers are no different. These cutouts add the perfect touch to this classic style. This loafer is available in the neutral Bone and the bold, colorblocked Coral.

Style in Bloom: New Work Wardrobe from Antonio Melani

 While (we admit) it is easy to settle for an oversized sweater and chunky heels, it’s time to showoff your Spring savvy style. Break out of your Winter wardrobe slumber and spring forward in captivating color and designs for your office wear.  Start with a fresh palette and transition into our favorite Antonio Melani office staples.

Every woman needs a little blue dress to add a pop of color into her profession. This eyelet dress flaunts a scalloped bodice tier and hem for an ultra feminine and curvy silhouette. Pair some neutral pumps and your favorite floral accessories to wake up your wardrobe without going overboard.

Shop this style: Antonio Melani Regina Dress &  Sonyah Slingback Pumps 

The pant suit is a wardrobe essenital when it comes to fierce style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t standout in soft hues. Create a neutral base with the Jane suit jacket and Maxine figure-flattering pant.  A burst of lush color intensifies this suit (while flaunting your feminine side) with the button-front Sonya blouse. The Esta peep-toe wedges give a clean finish in  metallic leather upper and jewel accents.

Shop this style: Antonio Melani Jane Jacket,  Maxine Pant, Sonya Blouse & Esta Wedges 

Nothing says stepping  into Spring style like floral silhouettes.  We love the Bertie skirt for its modern botanic design in a classic pencil skirt shape. The Rhetta blouse keeps its focus in the detail with two-tone color trim and goldtone button front— creating a cohesion of  bold print and polished simplicity when paired with this pencil skirt.  The Yardley wedge adds a hint of shine in metallic textured upper and braided trim.

Shop this style:  Antonio Melani Rhetta Blouse, Bertie Skirt & Yardley T-Strap Wedges 

If you’re not quite ready to dip into color, the Annelise suiting jacket and Antoinette pant offer a darker fabric that’s sleek and stylish. By adding a warm shade with the Milena silk blouse underneath, you can simultaneously announce your Spring style and office chic appeal.

Shop this style: Antonio Melani Annelise Jacket,  Antoinette Pants, Milena Silk Blouse & Gloria Jeweled Pumps

Cashmere Current: New Arrivals from Antonio Melani

Soft, stylish and comfortable, cashmere is a must-have for any cool-weather wardrobe. From flirty peplum to classic cable-knits, Antonio Melani offers a cozy collection of cashmere in styles and colors you crave.

Featuring a fit shape in a range of cushy colors, the Coco sweater is a staple for any cashmere crush. For a sophisticated ensemble, layer the Hollis button-front blouse underneath. Classic-yet-casual— we love a sharp collar beneath a burst of color! Looking for laid-back luxury? Transition from work to play with your favorite denim blues.


The Darcy cashmere blazer combines outerwear-shape in a soft silhouette. Like our other AM picks, the Darcy blazer can be dressed up or down for chic versatility.  Our stylist added the Tory cashmere sweater for a layered look in pattern-play stripes.

Feminine flair meets crafted cashmere with the Carolina sweater.  The flattering peplum hem and princess seams make this sweater a sweet choice for the season.  For a work-ready wardrobe,  we recommend the Coco tweed pants for textural harmony in a figure-flattering shape.


The Stella sweater may have a soft side, but its striking snakelike print packs a bite. Elevate this sweater to new heights with the Lorelei platform pumps in patent black leather.
