IN LIVING COLOR
WHY WE LOVE IT>> Color is always attention-grabbing but can be tricky to wear. But this primary color palette is fool-proof!

GIRL MEETS TRENCH
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It exudes a luxurious femme-chic appeal that softens dresses and trousers.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Try it with a metallic handbag and animal-print pumps for texture. Or for a day look take Alexa’s cue. She wore hers as a cape and paired a trouser with a low-key crossbody bag. Oh, and we’d totally rock Laura’s look after-hours. Her LBD and the embellishments on her coat are stunning. Ruffle Trench Coat (180113, $129)
