Express yourself  boldly without saying a word by marrying metal gold, silver, and leather. Drop a lavender, burgundy, or moody green stone onto your favorite little black dress, and steal the light with vintage-inspired pieces that are utterly contemporary.

At Your Feet

The right pair of shoes can make or break even the most extraordinary outfit. Strut your stuff with a strappy flourish or oversized bow that is anything but shy. Remember, you can’t loom large without a good foundation.

A Hint of Whimsey

Two words: polka dots! Is there a better way to say “fun”? Just don’t overdo it, or they’ll redirect you to the costume party down the block. But a measured dollop of goofy cheer says you’re here to have fun, and would love to have someone to join you?

Man of the Hour

Elegant or whimsical accessories can also make the man. Eton-designed bow ties with matching pocket squares introduce Old World charm to New World elan. Skull-embossed cuff links and bracelets demand attention … politely. For the ultimate in dapper, choose fanciful suede loafers, cufflink stud sets, and a silk bow or sparkling Swarovski tie.
