Prairie Blouse

Are we entirely on board with the Little Women look? No comment, but a solid cotton-poplin blouse is rarely a bad idea. Leave it to the Danish design team at Ganni to dream up a version endowed with a gloriously oversize collar and strategically placed ruffles. Styling tip: avoid wearing this with anything prairie, and pair instead with slick, slim trousers and very ’20 shoes. A long cady skirt and some flat boots by the Row will also work beautifully. ($160,


The Cashmere Beanie

You lost your hat again, didn’t you? It happens, especially for those of us who reside in a teeming, hat-wearing metropolis. But before you dash into the nearest CVS for an emergency beanie, do consider this far more rarefied version from Johnstons of Elgin. (A Scottish brand founded in 1797, they are knitwear experts.) Rib-knitted from fine cashmere, this cap looks especially rakish when worn slouchily, but for those who appreciate a more tailored approach, the hem can be folded up for a snug fit. ($60,

Linen Jacket

Fact is fact: spring collections are hitting stores, and while it’s still too cold for these new pieces in many parts of the world, the very best among them—like this linen jacket from Rejina Pyo—will be sold out well before the temps require them. A London-based designer, Pyo uses lean tailoring and a mishmash of buttons with equal enthusiasm, and this is just one of her very now (and yet also quite timeless) pieces. It’s enough to update your seasonal work look; whether or not you pair it with the matching shorts—don’t worry, they’re long and flattering—is entirely up to you. ($735,


Valentino Tote

Is there anything more irritating than a beach bag on a city street? No, but it happens, because who wants to carry around a leather tote in the spring and summer? Valentino has a solution in its Escape V-logo tote, woven in Italy from beige raffia and finished with smart, twin top handles and a detachable shoulder strap. It deserves to summer in Positano, but rest assured that it also has plenty of room for urban fare—a laptop and a handful of paperbacks—so it’s equally well suited for the office on weekdays and the country on weekends. ($1,795;


Veronique Gabai Highlighter

Former Estée Lauder executive Veronique Gabai is the name behind many of the world’s most exceptional fragrances. With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, she founded her own namesake brand, specializing in perfumes, candles, lotions, and jewelry. Inspired by the glamour of the Côte d’Azur, the blue-sky region of France where Gabai was born, her latest addition to the lifestyle marque is a creamy cheek highlighter—the Goldie—that adds both moisture and shimmer to the skin. Vegan and paraben-free, the resplendent hue is buildable but never feels heavy or chalky. ($70,
