Covet: What to Wear to Passover Dinner — or Easter Brunch

Covet-Easter

 

 

There’s a fine line between being stylish and being, well, church-appropriate. (Trust me. I’ve gotten a lot of side-eye from the priest at my church—partly because I rarely go to church, and partly because when I do go, I wear stuff like this.) Here’s how to toe the line for your first spring holiday. Not religious? Invest in one of these pieces to celebrate the official end of the Worst Winter of All Time: Anveglosa laser-cut leather jacket, $795 at Boyds, Rittenhouse; Komono Stella sunglasses in pale blush, $62 at Omoi Zakka Shop, Rittenhouse; Preen by Thornton Bregazzi skirt, $760 at Net-a-Porter; Manolo Blahnik BB striped grosgrain pumps, $655 at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bala Cynwyd.

Covet: The Work Outfit You Need This Spring

Covet: The Work Outfit You Need This Spring

Spring’s cropping up, which means it’s almost time to break out your maxi-dress/cardigan combo. Or your capri pants/blazer combo. And then wear them. Over and over and over again. Here’s a fresh way to spin your workweek look: Invest in a whoa-bold pencil skirt (this should hit below your knees), sharpen it with a cool take on the button-down—like this zip-up cropped top, which won’t even show a sliver of skin with a higher-waisted bottom—heels that deliver a splash of color, and a metal collar necklace (which you’ll wear over top of your buttoned-up collared shirt, not underneath). You won’t wish for casual Fridays ever again.

Covet: 4 Reasons We’re Obsessed With Orange

Covet-Orange

Orange gets a bad rap in the color family. “It makes me look like a pumpkin” is a comment we’ve heard more than a few times. (Really.) But let’s be honest: You can make that type of statement about any color, and it certainly hasn’t stopped us at Shoppist (hello, highlighter yellow). So in order to celebrate this new incarnation of orange, we’ve chosen four different ways to look decidedly un-pumpkin: Stella McCartney Clara Whispering lingerie set, $65 and $125 at Net-a-Porter; Alice & Olivia Gianna strappy sandals, $345 at Shopbop; lock clutch, $295 at Loeffler Randall; Valentino macaramé dress, $5,599.88 at Far Fetch.

Covet: 4 Ways to Wear Green That Work After St. Patrick’s Day

4 Ways to Wear Green That Work After St. Patty's DayAs I walked around the city on Saturday, I witnessed a lot of bad fashion. (Thanks, Erin Express.) Bad green t-shirts. Bad green knee socks. Bad green shamrock headbands. Bad green makeup. It’s safe to say that it’s easy to do green very, very wrong on St. Patty’s Day. I get it: You don’t want to wear satin Marc by Marc Jacobs kicks when you’ll most likely be standing in puddles of beer (and puke). But you also don’t want to wear any of this. Here’s how to the holiday right. (First, though, start by avoiding the Erin Express.) Otswald Helgason dress, $990 at Browns Fashion; Natasha Couture iPhone 5 case, $48 at Nordstrom; Marc by Marc Jacobs satin Mylo sneakers, $215 at Stylebop; Holly Ryan ring, $265 at The Grand Social.

Covet: 4 Reasons We’re Obsessed With Raffia Now

Covet: 4 Ways to Wear Raffia

I love materials used in unexpected ways. There were those wood hats at Tibi, and the emergence of neoprene (yes, the scuba gear material) in more collections than I can count. Add raffia to the list. The fiber, generally used for things like hats and baskets, is now popping up in everything from shoes to dresses. I’m swooning over these pieces, which will make summer look that much more stylish, and prove that raffia and straw can work beyond the sun hat: LAUREN Ralph Lauren straw and tulle visor, $38 at Zappos; M Missoni raffia shoulder bag, $395 at Shopbop; raffia dress, $395 at Milly; Oscar de la Renta embroidered raffia slingbacks, $325.02 at The Outnet.

 

Covet: 4 Ways To Wear Highlighter Yellow

How To Wear Highlighter YellowOver the weekend, my friend (and Philadelphia Wedding editor) Carrie texted me outfit options for a destination wedding she’s attending in Florida later this week.  Option A: a floral maxi dress. Option B: This bold neon dress with fantastic pleats (side note: pleats are going to be huge this spring!). Obviously, I voted for the neon. (Gorg, right?) It got me excited for summer, and for summer’s bright, happy wardrobe. Here, my top four ways to get your highlighter-yellow on: Giambattista Valli neon tweed jacket, $1,995 at Net-A-Porter; Maison Rabih Kayrouz Jaune dress, $1,625 at Barneys; Valentino Rockstud two-tone sandal, $945 at Neiman Marcus; Adrienne Landau Bryan Boy pull-through fur scarf, $371 at Bergdorf Goodman. Hey there, sun? Tag, you’re it.

Covet: This Is The Dress To Wear On Valentine’s Day

Covet: The Dress To Wear On Valentine's DayNow that we’re in the thick of winter’s drab dreariness, it’s time to amp things up with a bit (or a heaping amount) of sparkle. We’ve sorted through the wild, untamed shopping universe to bring you the best of what’s out there right now. Here, the statement-making pieces currently topping our if-we-won-the-lottery wish list: the best embellished Stella McCartney dress ever, $2,672 at MyTheresa; an Ela metallic pouch (perfect for stowing iPads), $218 at AHAlife; a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood sandals with a teeny surprise under the heel, $1,334 at Matches Fashion; a Shourouk brooch, $410 at Farfetch. Let the lusting begin …

 

 

Covet: You Won’t Believe What Shoe Is Making A Comeback

Covet-Marni-shoesNewsflash: In case you haven’t been glued to your street-style blogs and fashion mags, Birkenstocks have made a comeback among the style set (even Vogue gave them the thumbs-up!). But before you pull out your totally beat-up, worn-out, stained and smelly suede two-strappers from college (c’mon, you know you had a pair), consider one of the ultra-luxe riffs on the sandal, like Marni’s wide-strapped leather version, complete with a slice of gold hardware at the footbed. They’re wonderfully solid—enough of piddly T-strap sandals hanging on by a thread!—and the thick leather bands keep them from making that annoying slap-slap-slap sound as you walk. Invest in them now, and then wear with a simple white slip-dress or a pair of jeans come summer. Don’t want to shell out for them? Buy a new, fresh pair of classic Birkenstocks, and you’ll look just as fashion-savvy.

 

Covet: Kelly Wearstler Key Rings

Covet-KWkeychainsI remember going to dinner with stylist and all-around creative whiz Kimberly Fink after an all-day photo shoot at the Shore. As we got ready to leave, she pulled out her keys, which were hanging from a big gold ring, very much like an oversized bracelet. She pushed it over her elbow and her hands were free to give hugs goodbye and open her car door. Not only was it functional, but it was a shot of glamour and style in an unexpected place. I loved it, which is probably why I’m so drawn to Kelly Wearstler’s upgrade on the key chain: bold, gold, a bit naughty (see the one on the far right), and altogether covetable, whether the keys dangling from it are for a Buick or a Bentley. (Kelly Wearstler key chains, from left: $75, $150 and $125.)
