Time To Buy: Key Pieces


This week Celebrity Style Guide brings you fantastic key pieces! With the approach of summer, it’s all go-go-go in the fashion world, as fashionistas across the globe rush to get the new season’s just released trends. As a result, it can be a rather expensive time for anyone who likes to be on trend, especially if you enjoy completely updating and refreshing your wardrobe every season. Each summer, new trends flood the stores at an amazing speed, so while it’s great to be in fashion don’t forget to choose the looks that work for you. Here are some items I think will be investment pieces and a way to hold on to some of your hard earned cash while keeping you in step with latest styles.

SHOP THE LOOK:

1. T by Alexander Wang Gauze Back Cardigan ($170)
Taking a turn for the suburban, nyc designer Alexander Wang embraces the resort season with softer, sweeter silhouettes that transition his city girl to the seaside.

2. Jean-Michel Cazabat Larita Open Toe Lace Up Booties ($225)
Revel in the open toe boot trend with the Larita from Jean-Michel Cazabat. This smooth upper encases your foot in good style, while the adjustable lace up closure ensures a snug fit. The clean lines and extended tongue provide a fashion-forward look.

3. Vince Denim Ankle Skinny Jeans ($235)
Crisp, clean white denim, subtly distressed at the pockets and hems, styles sleek, skinny jeans in a slightly shorter length.

4. 3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Bomber Jacket ($995)
With a detachable contrast collar and lapels, 3.1 Phillip Lim gives this sandalwood jacket a trademark twist. Wear this versatile jacket with a light tank and cropped pants.

5. MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Asymmetrical Wedge Sandals ($385)
These Ultra-modern leather wedge sandals have stitch detail and buckled ankle strap create modern drama in a high wedge design.

6. Alexander Wang Brenda Mini Camera Bag ($425)
I love this bag's blend of innovation, edge, and versatility. The zippers and chains lend undeniable attitude—but I think it would be equally comfortable sporting it in the office and on the street.
