Maybe it has something to do with Dior’s recent jaunt in Monaco , or the classic striated looks Chanel showed in Singapore, but we’ve been lusting for old school nautical glamour—not to mention a waterfront vacation—of late. With Dolce & Gabbana’s bold striped skirt and Tucker’s silk crepe de chine top, you don’t need to be lounging on the Riviera to look like you’re on holiday. Add a wide-brimmed sun hat, kitten heels, and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses to really play up the retro chic. Let your clothes transport you, and shop our picks from Lanvin, RED Valentino, and more, below.

As one of the leading retail destinations in Los Angeles, TenOverSix—founded by Kristen Lee and Brady Cunningham—has garnered a cult following with its tightly edited mix of designers (think Jesse Kamm, Jenni Kayne, THVM, Alasdair, Maison Kitsuné, and beyond). Now, Lee and Cunningham have brought their cleverly cool curation to the Lone Star state, selecting Dallas’ recently renovated Joule Hotel for the location of their second outpost. Mimicking the L.A. store’s eclectic white-and-wood interior, the more-than-550-square-foot Dallas boutique is filled with an ample array of wares by up-and-coming designers, established indie labels, and high-profile brands. With the Dallas set in mind, Lee and Cunningham have stocked a ready supply of cocktail dresses and filled their Lucite display boxes with both subtle and statement jewelry from the likes of Mociun, Lizzie Fortunato, and Pamela Love. Staying true to their signature edit, the pair has made sure to bring along their best-selling stock of Karen Walker, Vena Cava, and Rachel Comey, as well as pieces exclusive to the new location.
In addition to the main store, Lee and Cunningham have created TenOverSix Presents—an updated take on a hotel gift shop, which, set in the Joule’s lobby, offers a quirky mix of gifts, accessories, and essentials. Only at TenOverSix can one find toothbrushes, a birdcage necklace, and a pig-shaped fruit basket all in the same place.
TenOverSix is open now at the Joule Hotel, located at 1511 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75202

Karen Walker told us that she wanted to celebrate “eternal optimism, fun, and adventure” with her Spring 2013 eyewear range. And the designer’s smile-inducing retro-futuristic shades do just that. Walker played with graphic shapes (like Giant Bug frames, circular Orbit specs, and new-wave cat-eyes), wacky colors (aqua, acid yellow, sherbet, and clear pink etched with skulls), and playful embellishments (the Atomic style has metal laser-cut eyebrows) to create irreverent wares for the femme who’s not afraid of a good giggle. Bright, fresh, and a little funny, Walker’s new glasses are a sweet Spring pick-me-up.

As the assistant to the queen of over-the-top style, Anna Dello Russo, it comes as no surprise that Carlotta Oddi has a covetable look all her own. But while her boss has been known for sporting outrageous getups—the Alexander McQueen visor and Piers Atkinson cherry-on-top hat come to mind—Carlotta has a clean, classic aesthetic with an editorial edge. She was recently spotted in Paris, by Stockholm Streetstyle’s Daniel Troyse, wearing a Valentino coat and bag with Givenchy boots. Get her look with the essentials below.
