1. Show them you mean business with these elegant and ornate Jacquard Cropped Trousers from Zara. These culottes already command a lot of attention, so my plan of attack would be to pair them with a sleek blazer and pointy heel. (zara.com)

2. You can’t see the details up close, but there are dozens of tiny cacti combining their collective forces into one quaint piece. This Cactus Print Waisted Dress is perf for that flora aficionado in your life, by the way. (stories.com)

3. Why, hello! These Matisse Quake Cow Hair Oxfords are rather ostentatious. And that’s why I’m a huge fan! These shoes pack a punch and are just the right amount of quirky to liven up a plain outfit. (revolveclothing.com)

4. So much fun and surprise in such a little package. Looking straight on, this Strap Linen Top from Mango is your run-of-the-mill cropped tank. But, oh no. Pow! The back is striking with its amazing cutout and braided straps. (mango.com)

5. I appreciate the subtle sassiness found in this Cut-Out Buckle Playsuit from Topshop. Again, the cutouts are a game-changer that elevate this look to the moon and back. I see what you did here, Topshop, and I’d like lots more of it, thank you! (topshop.com)

1. Friends, meet Mipacha. Handmade in Peru, it’s apparent that its shoes, such as the Cavillaca Alto Llama Aviacion, are each carefully crafted with love. I mean, feast your eyes on the detailed print and leather laces. An added bonus is that every pair sold in the online store comes packaged with a hand-woven bracelet and an optional backpack made from Mipacha’s residual material. (mipacha.us)

2. This Trapeze Embossed Blouse from My BFF Couture has all the frills, and I can’t argue with that. This eccentric top makes quite a statement, with the floral print speaking the loudest to my heart. (karmaloop.com)

3. Topshop’s A-Line Box Pleat Dress is shaping up to be a staple for winter, as this one works with just about any occasion. Not to mention, the grey hue is versatile enough to play with myriad accessories. (topshop.com)

4. Every now and then, I like to check on what the wholesalers are talking about. This time, they made it abundantly clear that this cobalt blue One-piece Skinny Jumpsuit belongs in my closet. (lovelywholesale.com)

5. Is this from The Great Gatsby wardrobe closet? Well, it certainly looks the part, and I’m all for it. This Jazz Age Sweater Dress, inspired from the 1920s, features a pronounced black-and-white chevron jacquard print that’s just screaming for some improvisation with layers, leggings and a killer heel.

1. Ladies and gents, Lulu Guinness. What a wonder she is. I’m particularly fond of the way the British designer takes the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Silly) concept and runs wild with her Long Sleeve Sweat Pullover in Off White. I’m especially loving the hearts and kisses taking center stage and the striped sleeves tying it all together. (uniqlo.com)

2. This Black Jacquard Collared Fit and Flare Dress just channels a grown-up Wednesday Addams, which I find utterly awesome (snap, snap). (riverisland.com)

3. Houndstooth, how I’ve missed you! What a darling reunion we have with this Motel Amy Backless Playsuit in Houndstooth Black and White. And the cutout back only ups the ante. (motelrocks.com)

4. OK, OK. I’ll admit it. Jackets like this Dark Gray High Neck Single Button Plain Coat from Kisschic kinda make me excited about fall and winter. (kisschic.com)

5. Strut your stuff in these Margo Printed Soft Pants by Sabine. Whether you’re getting all gussied up or keeping it casual, these fun little numbers will elevate your look. (piperlime.com)
