Calender Appeal

Ever open your closet door and stare directly into space, wondering what to wear? Don’t torture yourself! Just grab a Sharpie marker and scribble into your agenda these six impressive looks for work and play.

Work Week: Office appropriate and for after-work activities, like finger foods and happy hour at your favorite bar.

T by Alexander Wang tank: Loose-fitted tanks have replaced the camisole. Crisp, laid-back yet effortlessly attractive.

Alexander Wang jacket: Cropped collarless leather jackets are the ultimate in cool, they have the style and versatility of a tweed jacket, but less formal.

L’Agence vest: For those who are curious to try something gutsy but are too afraid to go full throttle, this metallic snake-skin vest is your ticket to freedom. Flattering with denim or with trousers.

L’Agence Pants: In the words of Coco Chanel, “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” With so many ways to dress tweed pants, they rank as the epitome of luxury. Feel free to wear them with any type of blouse, tank or tee, fashionable sneakers, boots and shoes.

Giuseppe Zanotti bag: Over-sized clutch bags have become the new craze! Big enough to store your daily essentials and positively chic for an after-hours event.

YSL shoes: With a 5.5 inch heel and a 1.5 inch platform, you get a divine kind of leverage. Undoubtedly adaptable, wardrobe changes will always be a cinch.

Cocktail Hour: This look is sleek and charming, perfect for an evening out.

Bodas top: This sheer blouse produces a delicate elegance that compliments a special event or day look.

DKNY pants: Totally functional and super wearable. The kind of pants you can see yourself using more often than you would like to admit.

Pierre Hardy shoes: Spring/Summer collections are jam-packed with versions of these wedged sandals and rightfully so, they are gorgeous and so favorable to all clothing. You have the lure of a stiletto without the backlash of aching feet.

Dannijo necklace: Statement jewelry adds spice to a demure look. An object like this can stand alone or coupled with a bold ring or thin bracelet.

Alexander McQueen ring: Alexander McQueen designs are whimsically Gothic, lavish and surprisingly practical. They smoothly convert from casual to festive in order of how you harmonize them.

Alexander Wang clutch: Leather binder meets wallet on chain, flexible in structure for some serious use.

Dinner Reservations: Impressions are important, so it’s best to leave your date, friends or guests star-struck in this.

Giambattista Valli dress: A shift dress is all-purpose; for the weekend, throw on a cardigan, sandals and a canvas tote. Add a blazer, pointed heels and leather tote for work. Or pile on the jewelry, a metallic jacket, clutch and boots for a night out.

Marni earrings: Dangling earrings look good for any occasion.

YSL ring: Cocktail rings are valuable accessory pieces with countless ways to wear them.

Anya Hindmarch clutch: Every woman must own at least one gold clutch, preferably in python with a swarovski crystal clasp.

Louboutin shoes: Strappy heels are the staple shoe for evening wear.

The Weekender (All Day Saturday): For the girl-on-the-go, a relaxed look that’s fun and stylish.

T by Alexander Wang tee: Nude colors like beige are classy and effortlessly chic.

Rick Owens jacket: Sleeveless jackets are layered for Fall/Winter and worn on their own during Spring/Summer.

Alexander Wang skirt: Little black skirts are provocative when used correctly. Balance the look with loose tops, any jacket, sweater, cardigan or vest will do. Avoid stilettos and opt for stacked heels, wedges, espadrilles, booties, flat knee boots, ballet shoes, kitten heels, oxfords and loafers.

Giles & Brother necklace: Sterling silver necklaces layer well with other delicate jewelry, bigger necklaces or worn independently.

Alexander McQueen necklace: A bird skull necklace is the gentler alternative to the traditional skull necklace and equally as wearable.

Pamela Love cuff: Silver rope cuffs are a major upgrade from the standard market cuff. Simply the best choice for vintage quality.

YSL ring: This house creates some of the most glamorous cocktail rings using a bold glass stone and intricate gold-plated detail.

Alexander Wang Bag: Bucket bags are the daily wear substitute for a tote.

Donna Karan shoes: Open-toe lace-up suede wedges are boot-sandal hybrid shoes, made for good weather. Combines with anything from dresses, skirts, shorts, tweed, cargo, denim, leather, wool and anything in between.

The Weekender (Sunday Brunch): Cozy and posh for those lazy days.

Chinti & Parker tank: Taupe tanks are the newest and most popular of neutrals.

Clare Tough cardigan: Chunky cardigans are more than just comfy, they soften the look of edgy or conservative outfits.

Bottega Veneta leggings: Leather leggings are much more playful then leather pants and pair well up with flowy blouses, tunics, racer-back tanks, cotton tees (plain or graphic), tweed jackets, mini skirts and denim.

Maison Martin Margiela cuff: The elegance of a solitaire gold cuff overcompensates for not wearing other jewelry.

Aurelie Bidermann ring: This house specializes in incorporating images of nature into their collection.

Brian Atwood shoes: Louboutin sensationalized the round-toe pump in eye-popping patent-leather and neutral leather, but Brian Atwood offers a sophisticated velvet version.

Chloe bag: We’re loving this mini maroon flap bag (with gold hardware). Small to pack our barest of essentials and stylish for everyday wear.

Travel: Traveling is for the most part exciting, but let’s face it, the hustle and bustle at the airport can easily wear you down, but dressing comfortable does not mean looking like you’ve stepped into a gym. This option is as relaxed as it is fabulous.

James Perse tee: Loose-fitted short-sleeve T-shirts give a carefree look to blazers and cardigans and are practically suitable for all occasions.

3.1 Phillip Lim blazer: White blazers defy Labor Day rules, looking just as good in Spring/Summer as they do in Fall/Winter. Wear with all-black or all-white or mix-n-match with your casuals.

Nancy Caten Necklace: Long thin gold chains are the perfect solitaire piece and exceptionally beautiful layered with varied necklace sizes.

7 of All Mankind jeans: Give your skinny jeans a rest! Loose-fitted denim is a great weekend alternative.

Donna Karan bag: Whether you’re sleeping over or just need more room in your bag, this light-gray over-sized tote is your go-to weekend bag. Can also be used for work.

Burberry shoes: There are really no restrictions for these light-gray suede strappy sandal, so enjoy running them into the ground.
