The Earrings

Brandon Maxwell and KJL


We’ve been lusting after the jewelry collaboration between Brandon Maxwell and Kenneth Jay Lane since it debuted on the former’s runway all the way back in March. Who knew that tortoiseshell and rhinestone made such a smashing combination? Now that these Art Deco–inspired earrings are finally available for order, it’s time to move. Quick note: they’re larger than they appear—grazing the collarbone, in fact—and so they’re happiest when paired with an ensemble with a (relatively) bare neck and shoulder. ($250, modaoperandi.com)

The T-shirt

Extreme Cashmere


What happens when one combines a cashmere sweater with a perfect-fit tee? Behold the No. 64 style from Extreme Cashmere, a Dutch brand founded by Saskia Dijkstra and Camille Serra, who met while working at the British label Joseph. Made of a thin (but not flimsy) stretch goat cashmere, it drapes elegantly and serves as a much-improved version of the T-shirts that we find ourselves wearing with increasing regularity. Pro tip: it also makes for an excellent gift for style setters of all varieties. ($300, matchesfashion.com)

The Bag

3.1 Phillip Lim


A lightweight, hardworking tote bag is always a welcome addition to one’s wardrobe, and we’re especially taken by this stylish, unisex duffel from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Made of an anti-bacterial textile and finished with both long and short straps, it was designed in collaboration with K11 Musea’s #LoveWithoutBorders initiative, a charitable campaign that provides support and medical face masks for essential workers fighting the coronavirus. Nominate one of your local heroes to receive a tote as a gift at @K11Musea. ($250, 31philliplim.com)

The Knit Look

Brock Collection


For those who are loath to purchase a clingy sweaterdress but are intrigued by the idea of its easy comfort, this ever so slightly A-line skirt and matching wrap cardigan from Brock Collection will get the job done. While we’re tempted to designate this look for the workweek, zipping from Zoom to Zoom, it could have been designed with cold-weather, at-home holidays in mind. Cozy and yet still sufficiently fashionable to up the style quotient of family photos? A no-brainer. (skirt, $1,460; cardigan, $1,770; modaoperandi.com)
