Fact: Amy Smilovic is loved for providing women with interesting workwear. For Spring, the NYC-based designer imbues her signature pieces with sexy slouch and a subtle futuristic edge. Sharp lines give way to curved tailoring, with restrained yet statement puff sleeves on blazers and loose-fitting, cropped trousers that taper at the ankle. The latter is shaping up to be the season's key pant silhouette; find it in a range of fabrics from glossy black vinyl to indigo tie-dye.
The buys: the roomy cropped pant and the light knit tops, which feature cool circular cutouts at the back.
