An all-purpose dress

With mega earrings and heels, it's perfect for galas. That it's eyelet and was shown with flats on the runway proves it's chic for day.

A belt

First there was the Hermès, then there was the Gucci. Now it's Versace—with all of the signatures details (sans logo), this one's never "out".

A blazer

A trend on the runways, it's also a wardrobe must. Balmain does it best—whether for day or evening.

Something chic for day

Your search ends with Carolina's polished denim dress.

The pouf sleeve

From the woman who nailed the off-the-shoulder...

A new bag

It doesn't get any better than a mini saddle silhouette in white crocodile.

A mini

Ellery had us at patent leather; Versace is an expert in high hemlines.

Something fabulous for evening

This is hands down the best cocktail dress of the season.

The kitten heel

It's about the details here: Attico's are in silk moiré with velvet ties and Bottega Veneta's come embellished.

A cocktail mini

A floral shift or cap sleeves and lace? The smart woman buys both.

The pencil skirt

Classic with just enough detail (it's satin with ruching at the waist) to be special.

A trench

It started at Calvin...who can resist the cool found in high-shine "plastic"?

The evening pouch

We are obsessed with the brocade coin purse—and trust that a bag carried by the It girls behind Attico is chic.

A bodysuit

For bodycon you go to Balmain.

The "pretty shoe"

Love. At. First. Sight.
