{Style Expert} Spring for This, Invest in That…

Our style experts, Honor Harrington, manager at Talbots in Annapolis, Md., and Joan Shepp, owner of Joan Shepp in Philadelphia, weigh in on the spring’s best Investment Pieces and Fab Buys.

Fab Buys:

1. White + Warren Swing Dress in Navy, $85

Why it’s a Fab Buy: Because you can wear it night or day. Throw on some sandals and head out or glam up this dress with a wide cinched belt, cuff bracelet and platform heels for the evening.

“It’s great for packing on your summer vacation,” says Joan. Made from 95% rayon and 5% spandex, it won’t wrinkle in your suitcase. It’ll be ready to wear-on-arrival, which means less fuss and more time on the beach.

2. Square Toe Leather Flats,  $99.00

Why it’s a Fab Buy: Because they come in more colors than a spring bouquet and gleam and glint like your favorite nail polish.

“I bought these myself!” says Honor. “I’ve never seen Kelly green patent flats before these. I said I’ve got to get them!”

Investment Pieces:

1. Majestic Triple Layer Tee, $124.

Why it’s an Investment Piece: Because it’s like buying three shirts in one fell swoop.

Shedding bulky layers when switching over a wardrobe from winter to spring can be liberating yet scary. This Triple Layer Tee from Majestic is the perfect way to ease the transition; the fabric is light, but tri-layering hides trouble spots leftover from colder months.

“It looks like you are wearing three shirts but it’s one,” says Joan Shepp, owner of Joan Shepp in Philadelphia.   “And it feels yummy.”

2. TSE Cashmere Scarves$138

Why it’s an Investment Piece: Because scarves don’t have to just be for winter! “Cashmere scarves in assorted prints are great to use as a wrap or to tie clothes together,” says Joan.

    That dress looks perfect. The perfect length, and figure flattering too. I think I will have to have it. Those flats look ultra comfy and stylish. How great to have things that look good and are comfortable too! That’s what it’s all about! I don’t know if I’d spend that much on those t-shirts, but it’s a good concept. Anything to keep the “frumpy” middle-aged look away, and yet not look like you are trying too hard to look young. These things are all great for getting towards that goal.

    Here I am again wishing for all of these super wearables. A color a day shoe suitable for feet that shun heels. A swingy dress I could stow away and bring out to wear without wrinkles whenever I chose to! A tiered shirt that looks like it would be happily worn with so many different bottoms. And, a scarf-to top off dress, shirt or what ever. I’m in jeans & old tops so much of the time, I’d not recognize myself in a mirror. I’ve been learning a great deal seeing how you use fabrics & styles to alter appearances & I certainly could use a lot of altering. Thank you so much for caring.
