Notice-me-now stripes, like these by Altuzarra, have gone glam in sleek black and white pairings. Get daring with high-contrasting linear print separates for a modern aesthetic. Or there’s no shame playing it safe with a solid—but strong—hue on the top or bottom. Find statement stripes locally at Michael Kors, Pink & Navy and Lotus Boutique.
For a quick boost to any look, add a stack of eye-catching bracelets, like these charm bangles by Alex and Ani. It’s eco-conscious jewelry featuring everything from Zodiac to Zen symbols. I’m particularly fond of this Buddha piece a friend gave me. It mixes in perfectly with my stackables collection and serves as a happy reminder to keep it simple. Alex and Ani, $28

I’m a new convert to Clé de Peau Beauté, French for “the key to skin,” an ultra-luxe line of skincare and beauty products. The foundations give a dewy finish and the award-winning concealer covers everything from dark circles to freckles to spots (seriously, it does!), leaving an even-toned complexion of perfection. Saks Fifth Avenue, $70
Summer, the perfect excuse for a spacious tote. Love this satchel by Vince Camuto with its crisp white, frost gray and fiery charge of coral. Even though the strap feels almost incidental, it’s not. Be sure to gather it up while grasping the handle for a bit of that street-style je ne sais quoi. Vince Camuto, $248
