Summer Love: Our Favorite Pumps

Sandals are the official shoe of summer, but that doesn’t mean parting ways with your favorite pumps. Simply slip into a single-sole, pointed-toe silhouette for a look that’s lightweight and leg-lengthening.  


Steve Madden Darrt Pointed-Toe PumpThis metallic stunner goes from edgy to ethereal with a few styling swaps. Skinny jeans say you’re not afraid to make a statement, while a little white dress speaks to your sweet disposition.
We love it for: Summer weddings (day or evening), garden parties, date night

Sam Edelman Okala Ankle-Strap Pump: Hot days often give way to simple fabrics and silhouettes — luckily, the Okala perks up even the most pared-down looks. Bold in cow-print hair calf, the wild style remains versatile thanks to a nude ankle strap.
We love it for: The office, stylish Saturdays, weekend getaways

Steven by Steve Madden Akcess Pointed-Toe PumpThe Akcess flaunts a fierce reptile texture that grounds breezy dresses, skirts and cropped pants. Snag it in your choice of summer shades: coral, white or blue.

Nautical Know-How: Spring 2013 Trends

Adrift after a drab winter? Warm up with our favorite nautical looks. Don’t reserve seafaring style for the beach (although, it’s perfect for resort) — maritime pieces work as a crisp pick-me-up any day of the week.

White and navy are nautical stalwarts — pop the pairing with red, orange or yellow. You can also expand the palette with other ocean-inspired hues like seafoam green and cobalt.

Shop the Looks: Calvin Klein Crewneck Tie-Waist Dress & Swarovski “Holly” Starfish-Pendant Double-Chain Necklace, Antonio Melani Tiago Belted Peplum Dress, Lauren Ralph Lauren Textured Leather Belt & MICHAEL Michael Kors Ionna Patent Pumps, Lauren Ralph Lauren Cotton-Blend Button JacketMICHAEL Michael Kors Dolman-Sleeve Stripe Top

Nautical stripes are bold and classic. We love clean navy/white pieces, but unexpected bursts of neon or sparkle set a fresh course. Another subtle update: trade navy bands for black.

Shop the Looks: Cremieux Lina Stripe Knit Dress, IQ Paris Striped Hi-Low DressMICHAEL Michael Kors Button-Front Blazer

Decked out with buckle accents and chain prints,  the MICHAEL Michael Kors resort line takes a refined approach to nautical. Whether you are packing for a getaway or headed to the office, you’ll find a striking piece to sail your wardrobe into the next season.

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.


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.

Shop the look: Columbia Mighty Lite III Jacket, Under Armour Perfect Workout Pants, Under Armour The Printed ColdGear Fitted Mockneck Top, Under Armour Seamless Workout Bra and Under Armour Shatter Gym Duffle Bag
