[1] Giorgio Armani Spring 2015 RTW[2] Paul Smith Black Label dress, $695 at Knit Wit, multiple locations. (Style tip! A graphic pattern can be just as fetching as an animal print. Wear this shirtdress with chunky cuff bracelets.) [3] Theory Grinetta linen pants, $295 at Theory, Rittenhouse. [4] Eddie Borgo necklace, $850 by special order at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bala Cynwyd. [5] Peep-toe mules, $289 by special order at Club Monaco, Rittenhouse. [6] Tibi leather culottes, $1,195 at Tibi.com[7] Zimmermann asymmetric cotton shirt, $365 by special order at Intermix, Rittenhouse. (Psst: Swap your basic button-down for one with more modern appeal. Our pick: this belted top, with its sharply asymmetrical cut. Cinch at the waist, push the sleeves up to the elbow, and wear with wide-legged pants — or your skinniest jeans.) [8] Clare V. foldover clutch, $218 at Third Street Habit, Old City. [9] Victoria Beckham silk jute wrap coat, $3,495 at Victoriabeckham.com.
