Modern femininity requires a finely tuned mix of sophistication, sex appeal, and a little bit of edge. Present-day incarnations of Brigitte Bardot come to mind, like Kate Moss and Julia Restoin Roitfeld. This week’s picks channel these three elements – all you need to pair with them is a noir-heavy wardrobe and a touch of leopard. (And great genes don’t hurt either.)

MOST-COVETED_91

1. CÉLINE Mini Luggage Tote. Tap into your feline side with this leopard-print tote.
2. Rivka Friedman 14k Earrings. Dramatic earrings are an easy way to glamorize your look.
3. Trina Turk Leather Skirt. Add a bit of edge with leather statement pieces, like this perfectly fitted pencil skirt.
4. Casadei Pump. Swap out classic pumps for this high-impact pair with cutouts and gold heels.
5. L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Hand Cream. Keep your hands feeling soft with this shea butter cream. The travel size is perfect for your purse or desk drawer.

Many consider heels to be wearable works of art – including the Brooklyn Museum. On September 10, the New York institution will launch a 160-piece exhibit, Killer Heels, that explores the high heel’s long history and its enduring place in fashion.

With a change in season comes the need for a serious wardrobe refresh. From bold investment pieces to basic staples, I’ve combed this week’s Boutiques to find the pieces you (and your closet) need.
Most Coveted

  1. RAOUL Mini Saddle Bag. Hands-free bags are a must for city living. And this saddle style scores extra points for its on-trend silhouette.
  2. Line & Dot Tie-Dye Miniskirt. This skirt plus a slouchy tee and cutout booties = ready for the weekend.
  3. Adia Kibur Bangles. ‘Tis (finally) the season for bangle stacking.
  4. CÉLINE Tie Handbag. Investing in a new tote? This one has timeless status written all over it.
  5. Stuart Weitzman Alex Espadrille. Jennifer Aniston’s favorite wedge. Need I say more?

There’s something about designer duds that make every lover of fashion just a little bit giddy (I’m living proof when strutting down the street with my favorite Furla carryall). And no one knows that better than the pros at Hallandale Beach–based LuxeDH. Purveyors of authentic, pre-loved luxury handbags from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Balenciaga, they told me how they’ve seen it all, from handbag hoarders to handling some of the most coveted pieces in the runway world.
