Update your wardrobe
People StyleWatch offers fresh wardrobe updates from designer Tory Burch:
Choose a bold pattern: “I love the look of a strong graphic jacket, particularly when paired with unexpected prints. It's all about trying new combinations.”
Work global-inspired pieces: “We partnered with women artisans from Guinea on our tie-dye skirt. Their skill is incredible — tie-dye is a local tradition.”
Mix textures: “I love the combination of matte and shine on our gold-heel straw pumps. Wear them with ankle-length pants; the neutral hue elongates your legs.”
Go for special takes on staples: “A crisp, white top is a great canvas for interesting embellishment. For our spring collection, we created tile-like trim with beads of all shapes and sizes.”
Have fun with extras: “More is more when it comes to spring handbags. We added pom-poms, mirrors, batik trims and tassels to an artisanal look.”
