This week is all about the HEAD TURNER. That look that makes everyone swoon. The flow of a sheer trench down 5th Avenue. The printed pant suit and stellar heel. I love this look we shot in the DKNY studios. It’s very dark and sultry. And though you’re nearly fully covered, it’s still subtly sexy.
I always have to have a great slouchy jean, bomber jacket, and baseball cap tucked neatly in my closet. THE ESSENTIALS. I’ll wear this and hop on a Citibike, then I’ll quickly switch into these gladiator heels for a dinner in the East Village. Effortless and easy. No makeup required.
