Hibernating for winter? Time to wake up in colorful ensembles for weekday and weekend. These on-trend looks feature suits for the office and florals for carousing.



Suits Us

Smart suiting, often featuring cool-girl twists, such as casual belts and shirts, is in vogue. The sculptural tailoring may be daytime ladylike, but provocative cutouts, asymmetrical necklines and short hemlines rock in the evening.




Moody Florals

Unexpected for this time of year, beguiling blooms add lush visual content to cold-weather ensembles. These petal pushers are more intense than the last time nature took a turn in the spotlight. Even on knit separates, floral details are joyful.
