Anyone who’s been through the Resort ringer or brushing up on our trend reports recognizes the season’s commercial significance. Pre-Spring is time to shine when it comes to sales, and we witnessed savvy brands amping up their accessories offerings this year—because at the end of the day, most customers would still rather invest in a timeless bag or a terrific pair of shoes than blow their budget on a fancy cocktail dress they’ll only break out occasionally. This summer, the editors here at Style.com have all but sworn off our heels in favor of still-trendy sneakers or casual flats, and so we got a kick out of the down-to-earth gladiators (much easier than the towering styles made popular two years ago) from the likes of Miu Miu, Valentino, and Sacai Luck. Similarly, the latest lineups from Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim both featured knee-high, lace-up desert boots ideal for stomping on city sidewalks. Elsewhere, Nicolas Ghesquière earned extra credit for his Cruise extras spotted on the Louis Vuitton runway in Monaco. Highlights here included the monogrammed Petite Malle bag, which was updated with a chain-link handle. Among this season’s other fresh accessories propositions were Reed Krakoff’s new RK40 satchel, which was a bona fide hit at his recent presentation; Stella McCartney’s bejeweled wooden clutches; and Gucci’s killer go-go boots. Of course, we couldn’t resist the novelty factor of Giles’ playful stegosaurus purse and Jeremy Scott’s “This Is Not a Moschino T-Shirt” moment.

Until recently, everyone was always a bit wary of pastels. Were they overly sweet? Or even acceptable over the age of 15? And how were you expected to wear multiple shades without looking like an Easter egg? But thanks to the recent surge of what we like to call “modern pastels”—the same baby pinks, pale yellows, and icy blues but on the most basic of shapes—the hues are coming into their own. The key is to look for uncomplicated pieces that let the color make the statement (bonus points for a cool metallic or patent finish). Mixing lavender with mint green never looked fresher.

There’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Temperatures in New York are slowly rising, and it seems spring hasn’t forgotten us after all. As the East Coast inches toward warmer climes, we’re wasting no time pulling out our new spring pieces—even if the air is still a little brisk. Despite the season’s many covetable trends, there’s nothing as fresh as a breezy white ensemble. We feel lighter just thinking about crisp ivory blouses and bright white jeans—so much so that we’ve already started wearing them. White is a year-round hue, after all, and we highly recommend investing in a standout piece or two. They will carry you straight through the summer (and maybe even the fall).
