Gina’s springtime look is perfect for a day of meetings or even a smart business lunch. It’s the best of coastal California casual, with a dash of Parisian elegance thrown in for good measure.
I’ve always enjoyed pairing navy and white together; it’s a clean combo that nods to classic nautical styles and always looks chic. The key is to avoid pieces that look too obvious—or worse, costumey—so anchors and gold buttons are a big no in my book.
I love the structure and girly swing of this statement making A-line patent leather trench from Courreges, a French label that was wildly popular in the 1960s and has reemerged today. The navy hue is bright and unexpected, which makes it perfect for day. Navy was a key trend color on the runways for SS2015, and for me it can easily replace black as your dark neutral in warmer months. The oversized Mod white buttons nod to the 60s, capturing another current trend of the season and adding extra personality to this anything but traditional trench.
The whole look is built on simple white separates, which are not only easy to find in your existing wardrobe, but look crisp and vibrant under almost anything.
I wanted to add a subtle pop of color and texture, so these woven red and navy pumps from Jimmy Choo were just the thing.
And Gina’s a huge fan of the label, as they make heels that are comfortable enough for her to run around in all day and can easily pull any look together in flash.
I finished Gina’s outfit with a structured white Gucci bag that empowers the look, but still keeps things ultra feminine. I love how the bamboo handles add a warm wooded touch to the cool nautical shades. Et voila! Style is served—easy and wearable—it’s all how you put it together!
