This season, the spotlight is on long skirts, bringing a fresh take to classic pencil styles. Slick leather and pinstripes take the lead in adding a sophisticated touch. I’m all about edge, so naturally, I’m gravitating towards leather. I just discovered this Good American option, which is perfect for channeling those office siren vibes. But this versatile Topshop maxi is also great for those favoring a longer length.

If it isn’t obvious by now, striped shirts are the ultimate transeasonal staple. They also happen to fall in line with the emerging preppy trend, allowing you to pick between basic tees, cardigans, and polo sweaters. No matter what your preference is, striped tops are such great basics to style with ripped jeans or cargo skirts.

The timeless button-up shirt remains a wardrobe essential, and is repeatedly worn by fashion It girls, including Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Versatile and chic, it pairs flawlessly with trousers or baggy jeans. But for a touch of flair, explore denim variations or off-the-shoulder details.

The ’90s obsession isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, especially with the rise of column dresses. Tailored close to the body, it strikes the right balance between sexy and sophisticated. I love wearing these dresses on their own or layering them with other spring essentials – like tweed jackets and stripe cardis.

Classic slingbacks are back in a big way thanks to Gucci’s delicate ’90s-inspired pumps and Prada’s chic design. They’re a true wardrobe essential with endless potential, pairing well with suits, skirts and everything in between. I simply can’t get enough of my Gucci ones!
