ATTAINABLE: Sanctuary Cosmic Ribbon-Row Top
It's my philosophy that a little sparkle can help you get through the dreariest of winter days -- and this Sanctuary top is the perfect antidote for cloudy skies. I love the black trim and shimmering bands of gold ribbon. This would be perfect layered over a black tank and paired with jeans, boots, and a cardigan for a sparkling daytime look.
I love when a trusted brand produces a new product or line -- something that takes the best principles from its original designs but puts a new spin on it. When it comes to denim, I've been a J Brand fan for as long as I can remember: the cuts are classic, the fit is flawless, and they have such go-with-anything appeal. J Brand Ready-to-Wear is a line filled with chic takes on the classics -- perfectly-tailored coats, soft T-shirts, and all of the building blocks necessary for a truly fabulous wardrobe.

Everything about this soft, luxurious coat appeals to me. I love, LOVE the creamy camel hue, and the zippers are nothing short of brilliant -- especially at the cuffs and neck. The collarless look is modern, while the length is perfect for pairing with pants or dresses.

I love that the contrasting panels on this cozy-looking knit keep it feeling fresh and modern. The hues are all neutral, but it's certainly not boring -- although the white panels dominate, I'm particularly fond of the darkest touches at the collar and cuffs.
J Brand Ready-to-Wear Dallas Tee
www.shopbop.com; sale (now) $45
Though it's made of simple jersey, the metallic sheen on this cleverly-designed tee makes it totally ideal for layering during the day or as a stand-alone piece come evening. I love the slightly cropped cut, loose fit, and Dolman-style sleeves, all of which take the basic T-shirt shape and transform it into utter perfection.
J Brand Ready-to-Wear April Pleated Trousers
www.shopbop.com; sale (now) $157.50
These pants mark the launch of my obsession with this brand -- there's just nothing about them that isn't completely chic and utterly gorgeous. I love the slim, tailored cut, the perfect creases, the slightly cropped length, and, of course the pleats. These are truly the perfect everyday pants, stepped up a notch and brilliant for pairing with every single thing in your closet.
