The Edit: 12 Modern Ways to Wear Pearls

The-Edit

Okay, maybe “comeback” is a bit of a misnomer because pearls never really left, but this season’s new styles are so much better than the boring studs and strands of yesteryear. From ultra-modern minimalist collars to diamond-dotted ear cuffs, these aren’t your grandma’s pearls. (Unless your grandma loves Lanvin. In which case, yay granny!)

The Edit: 7 Supremely Sexy Thigh-High Boots For Fall

The-Edit-boots

Right now, I can’t get enough of boots. And not ankle-grazers, or even knee-highs. I’m talking boots that stretch over the knee and creep up your thigh. The idea of them sounds overtly sexy—black leather thigh-high boots!—something my mother would deign appropriate only for a “streetwalker.” But it’s precisely their full coverage that makes them so easy to wear. Throw them on with a long tunic and they’ll act almost like leggings; pair with them with a miniskirt to keep your look just sexy enough (in fact, some of our style experts say that boots allow you to wear minis into your forties and fifties!); or wear them with a midi skirt for warmth come winter. Thighs, all eyes on you.

The Edit: 8 Ways to Wear White After Labor Day

The-Edit-white

It’s after Labor Day and guess what? People—very stylish people at that—are still wearing white. Gasp! The stark non-color is the easiest way to get (or fake) a minimalist, modern style. One of my muses? The lovely Anh Mai, the stylist/blogger behind Mai Style Pages, who is almost always in some sort of snowy-white outfit. We recently chatted over coffee about our insane compulsion to purge, purge, purge our closets, all in pursuit of the perfect just-big-enough capsule wardrobe. My advice: Start with at least one of these (the customizable Stan Smiths would be my pick!), get rid of something in your closet that you never wear (perhaps that neon crop top you wore to Made In America, but will realistically never wear again?), and then relish in breaking the fashion rules.

The Edit: 10 Gorgeous Pendants We Love

The-Edit

A few seasons ago, the bib necklace debuted and then never really left. Suddenly, everyone was sporting hulking spangled collars and wide bedazzled bibs. Now, jewelry is tilting to the delicate side, and we’re loving it. Long necklaces have an elongating effect, and these look great layered with other necklaces of varying lengths. Here, 10 ways to wear ‘em at every price point.

The Edit: 10 Statement Sandals We Love This Summer

Statement-Sandal-Marquee

As I write this, it’s 89 degrees outside, but it feels like 3282359 degrees—in my professional opinion—because it’s 50 percent humidity. When you can basically feel the moisture in the air, the last thing you want to do is pile on the layers in the morning. So, because you can’t wear a bathing suit to work, take the guesswork out of your a.m. outfit prep and start pairing basic with some statement-making sandals. We’ve found ten pairs that look just as good with jeans and a tee as they do with a work-appropriate shift. It’ll be your end-of-summer uniform in no time.

The Edit: 9 Ways to Wear Embroidery This Summer

The-Edit

When it first occurred to me to do to a roundup of embroidery for The Edit this week, I found myself reciting a Miranda Priestly a la The Devil Wears Prada line: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” (Except in my head it was, “Embroidery? For summer?”) Embroidery isn’t exactly a trailblazing summer trend, but the typical iteration is more likely to be seen on a pair of ancient Levi’s than on a polished jacket or a pair of barely-there d’orsay flats. Here, 9 ways to make embroidery look polished and chic this summer. Miranda Priestly be damned.
