Off the grass and onto the sidewalk! Or into the office, for that matter. As we go into weekend two of Coachella, where even more fringe-coated, cutoff-heavy, midriff-baring looks will be released upon us, I’ve been thinking about how to convert our festival favorites into real-life staples to wear again and again. It’s all about picking the right ones, that can translate from a day of frolicking while listening to your favorite artists to your everyday agenda, no problem.
1. Beyond Brunch: Saint Laurent Studded Leather Espadrilles
The espadrille is a longtime summer favorite, but usually it’s more prep than punk. Enter Saint Laurent and their studded riff on the classic rope-soled shoe, perfect for a brunch moment and many others. The best part? These staples go with everything, from your flower-child dresses to your polished shirtdresses. On NET-A-PORTER for $595.
2. Traveling Light, Day to Night: Chloé Jane Mini Fringed Leather and Suede Shoulder Bag
Go free and easy with this miniature yet high-impact shoulder bag. Tight structure and flowing fringe come together for a balanced bag that brings fun into every equation – and every occasion. On NET-A-PORTER for $990.
3. Work to Play: Alice + Olivia Chloe Embellished Cropped Denim Jacket
Out of Stacy Bendet’s hot-off-the-runway Grateful Dead collection, this is one of the best patchwork pieces we’ve seen. Cropped just right, you can dress it up with a maxi skirt or pencil skirt or turn it down with mismatched cutoffs. At Alice + Olivia for $695.
4. The Day Date: Rebecca Taylor Amanda Off-the-Shoulder Silk-Chiffon Dress
Off-the-shoulder is the style of the season, and there’s nothing like a flowy, feminine dress with lightly-tiered ruffles for a date that happens when the daylight is still bright. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $595.
5. Cocktail Hour: Acne Studios Suki Wo Si Wool and Silk-Blend Bra Top
Feel like a seriously-cropped bra top is too much, even for after-dark cocktails? Take a cue from Acne’s styling and sport this one over a crisp white tee. Or under a blazer for an equally modern feel. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $360.
