Save Square Footage With This SUPER-Versatile New NYC Label

    Manhattan has a list of city-specific fashion rules too numerous to list here, but let's just say that new label Maggy Frances is a testament to a top fiver: Less is more for fall. This vibrantly-printed collection of classic basics comes from New York designer Maggy Schultz (who's only 24!), and her line's suite of tailored, sharp separates is exactly keyed to our borough-bound mindset. We'll put it this way: When wardrobe square footage costs more than even Midas would cough up, bulky on-trend outerwear seems more like closet cloggers. That's the last thing we need!

    We're guessing that Schultz had some of this closet-caution in mind when she put together this highly limited-silhouette selection: In just eight pieces, Schultz offers multiple pattern options (geometric, botanical, and more) for unlimited print-mixing and pairing possibilities. The Elizabeth mini skirt has a whopping 11 style options (we're partial to the four tartans available), and the Annie skater mini dress has seven! With our sweet tooth, we're crushing on the maraschino cherry-printed version of the Hannah shorties, but for form and serious functionality, the very luxe Italian wool Michelle blazer and geometric-printed Marianne blouse are high on our shopping list.

    Scope out the lookbook for all of Maggy Frances' space-saving, color combos — in lieu of a bigger apartment, her wares will definitely help you ease the squeeze!

Are nude nails the new normal, or will we see brights make a return? Will our manicures ever be fully chip-proof? We decided to get to read
