Zac Magic

It’s exciting that Zac Posen has signed on to collab with Brooks Brothers. Even more exciting, his first collection launches this month. I particularly love the matching print separates, like this spirited look. Certainly a fun outfit for a garden party, but I’d take it out for the night, too. Try styling it with blue pumps, a clutch of another color with a pulled-back pony, gold choker and studs. Done. Brooks Brothers, blouse, $98; wide-leg pant, $168

Walk this Way

Take a cue from Instagrammers everywhere: Sebago is no longer for Docksiders alone. The iconic American brand has been infused with a modern sensibility. Taken from the boys, both the Hutton Chukka and the Hutton Cap Toe boast a chic silhouette and linen fabric. Lightweight and remarkably comfortable, too. Peltz Shoes, chukka, $145, cap toe, $135

Clutch Play

Edie Parker vintage-inspired clutches are hot from the red carpet to runway front rows. Whether it’s the hand-poured acrylic look, which harkens back to midcentury style, witty engravings or custom personalization. these bags have a major following. Craving this piece saluting our fair city. Rue, $1,995

Calm Down

I treasure the brightening aftereffect of a skin peel, but it’s the days of recovery that get to me. Restore hydration, comfort irritated skin and bolster rapid healing after resurfacing procedures with Hydropeptide’s Soothing Serum. Calming peptides, arnica and botanical stem cells strengthen the skin’s defense system and reduce redness. Longboat Key Club Spa, $163
