Winner Takes All: 5 Picks for Red Carpet Glamour

Come Sail Away

Breton stripe shirts are a classic, but they’re having a particularly big moment right now. The cool girls love them (see Keira Knightley and, bien sûr, the French Voguettes), and so do designers. Donna Karan packed a number of nautical-striped pieces into her DKNY collection for pre-fall. Ditto Phoebe Philo at Celine. While there are scads of trendy takes on the shirt, we particularly love this Balenciaga top for its simplicity. Pair with jeans and flats and you’ll be ready for a stroll on the pier or the pavement. Click the image to shop.

Modern Art

We may live and die by our dark denim jeans, but Spring’s embellished /distressed /bleached trend has us questioning our plain pairs. In particular, we have our eyes on Alexander McQueen’s Pollock-esque cropped pants from Resort.The saturated wash balances the haphazard paint splatters, while the details (ankle zippers, quilted knee patches) will keep us from looking like an art-school urchin. Any day now, the gallery invites should start flooding our inbox. Click the image to shop.

Training Day: 5 Sporty Pieces

Combining trends doesn’t always work (see: jeggings), but sometimes the elements come together in perfect harmony. Richard Nicoll‘s structured minidress gives you two Spring trends for the price of one. The boned and molded bodice is in line with the exposed lingerie look, while the ribbon sash suggests military without being obvious. We recommend pairing it with upswept hair and minimal jewelry for a refined cocktail look. Click the image to shop.
