“Watch” For Spring Color!

Got the time?  If you looked at your wrist and yawned, it’s time to spring into some seriously fun color — and  you don’t have to give up functionality or style to do so.  It’s all about making your timepiece match your mood as you transition from a grey winter to a vibrant spring.

Personally, I like to see women with a watch that says “I’m a woman who knows there’s a time for everything!”  And that kind of woman is going to gravitate toward a timepiece like the Fossil Riley Pink Dial Multifunction Watch.  While the pink dial shouts a girlish “IT’S SPRINGTIME!”, the goldtone stainless steel bracelet speaks to no-nonsense feminine savvy.

Of course, green is the archetypal color of spring (and St. Patrick’s Day, we might add.)  That’s why I recommend the uber-green  kate spade new york “Metro” Bright Green Silicone Strap Watch.  Green enough to make anyone yearn for the first breathless blooms of spring, this timepiece has clean, simple lines that will also appeal to your feminine sense of order and clarity.

Time for a little glamour, girl?  Light up the room with your Versace Vanity Lavender Leather Strap Watch, featuring lavender croco-embossed calfskin with 2 Medusa studs.  It’s glitzy in a good way.

Perhaps your female significant other is a bit more understated.  Then I suggest Michael Kors “Channing” Turquoise Dial Goldtone 3-Hand Watch.  The turquoise dial pops with spring color but the the goldtone stainless steel band is more reserved.  This watch is “Springy”, but not un-sprung, if you catch my drift.

For the “Blue Man” in your life, (or if you’re a “Blue Man” yourself), strap on the Fossil Grant Men’s Chronograph Watch.  The blue dial pops with spring color from a shiny silvertone stainless steel band.  Pair this watch with complementary-colored apparel (either yellow or something orange-ish), and you’ve made a manly spring statement.

Tick… Tick… Tick… Spring’s almost here! Time to start shopping!

The Right Coat for Every Event

Whether it’s the first thing your hostess sees when you hand over that bottle of wine or the last thing your friends see as you leave the restaurant, the right coat is worth choosing carefully. Here are some of our favorite ideas for matching the right coat to any situation.

around_town

The Coat: The rich red color of this Jessica Simpson double-breasted coat brings out the roses in your winter-pale cheeks, and the flattering cut emphasizes your figure instead of hiding it.

Wear it with: These NYDJ ponte leggings in black or dark grey knit are the perfect counterpoint to the red hue and elongate the line of your leg. Ideal for layering, the Awake scoopneck tunic adds warmth without bulk so the line of the coat falls exactly as it should. Finish the look with Alter Ego smoking slippers from GB Gianni Bini in a fun, unexpected leopard print for an added touch of flair.

Shop the look: Jessica Simpson Double-Breasted Coat, NYDJ Ponte Leggings, Awake Scoopneck Tunic and GB Gianni Bini Alter Ego Leopard Print Smoking Slippers

The Coat: Simple elegance and careful tailoring make this Katherine Kelly collarless cashmere walking coat an ideal companion for your favorite dresses of the season.

Wear it with: Glimmering sequins, warm color and a design that frames your shoulders make this sequin mesh dress from T by Tadashi a smash hit for any gala. Pair with these glimmering, icy white Gianni Bini January platform sandals for compliments that will leave you floating on air.

Shop the look: Katherine Kelly Collarless Cashmere Walking Coat, T by Tadashi Sequin Mesh Dress and Gianni Bini January Platform Sandals

The Coat: The MICHAEL Michael Kors leather bomber jacket shows you’re ready for laid-back fun, with rich chestnut leather and a flirty cropped style.

Wear it with: This season’s bold, decadent coated Legacy jeans from Rich & Skinny show that you’re in touch with the latest trends. Perfect for adding shape under a boxy cropped jacket, this wintry light ash Vince Camuto faux-wrap knit top adds volume at the neckline for an eye-catching half-zipped look. Sleek Harty snake-print pumps, also from Vince Camuto, dial up this edgy style by just a notch.

Shop the look: MICHAEL Michael Kors leather bomber jacket, Rich & Skinny Coated Legacy Jeans, Vince Camuto Faux-Wrap Knit Top and Vince Camuto Harty Snake-Print Pumps

The Coat: Make working out easier to get worked up about with a coat that lets you look great while you’re staying healthy. We love the Mighty Lite III jacket from Columbia, which combines ultra-lightweight fabric with slim construction that won’t throw off your stride on a winter run.

Wear it with: Under Armour has your active ensemble covered. The Perfect workout pants make exercise a cinch with lightweight, low-friction fabric and superior moisture management. Add a splash of bold color, not to mention the latest active fabric technology, with the ColdGear fitted mockneck top. For the right support, try the seamless workout bra, then pack your gear in stylish ease with the tough fabric and pretty ruched details of the Shatter gym duffle bag.

Game On: What to Wear Tailgating

Show off your team spirit — and your personal style — this tailgating season with looks that couple your love of football and fashion.

  1. Winning Style: Thanks to chicka~d, oversize logo tees are a thing of the past. We layered a leather jacket over this one-shoulder dress for a touch of edge (and warmth). Booties keep your feet comfortable, while a crossbody bag allows hands-free snacking and socializing.
  2. Sporty Chic: Who says game-day gear can’t be on-trend and team-oriented? Simply snag a pair of colored jeans in your school’s signature shade and finish with an elegantly draped sweater. Complete the look with statement accessories — like riding boots and a chunky necklace. Festive nails solidify your commitment to the home team.
  3. Spirited Shimmer: Elevate the tailgating experience with a flirty dress (in your college’s color, of course). We chose a swingy silhouette with a touch of shine to commemorate the big win. A dressy yet easy-to-carry bag keeps your essentials close. Pumps or flats complete the look, just be sure to consider the terrain at your tailgate.

Shop our entire selection of women’s apparel to create your own game-day wardrobe.
