The Gathered Skirt // Take an elevated approach to ruching with Ellery’s ruched-front maxi skirt. Keep your top simple and anchor with platform sandals by Robert Clergerie.



Statement Sleeves // A balloon-sleeve blouse is this season’s wardrobe hero. Wear Rosie Assoulin’s bold red top with a pair of tailored trousers for the office or an easy skirt for off-duty style.
