Adding a stamped leather, or “croc-effect”, piece introduces a touch of luxe exoticism and is a forever classic in my book. But this season, the croc-look is stronger than ever. I like it best when a simple piece, like Chloé’s buckle sandal, is transformed into something unique and special. A structured vintage-inspired top handle bag is another favorite that looks chic with dresses or jeans and with so many faux options, is quite affordable. Or, pair a wide belt with a trim jacket and you’ve mastered the silhouette hit of the season with all eyes on the waistline.
