N°21's Tropical Sweatshirt Is The Ultimate Winter-Blues Remedy

As the creative force behind contemporary cool-girl brand N°21, Italian designer Alessandro Dell'Acqua knows a thing or two about millennial women — namely, he can predict exactly what we want to wear. See for yourself. Dell'Acqua's resort '14 collection is chock-full of mix-and-match separates that feature the brand's signature blend of naughty and nice. Take this palm-tree-print sweatshirt: The thick scuba jersey exudes a decidedly sporty note — that is, until you spin around to reveal a delicate, lace back. It's unexpected details like these that make for truly exceptional clothing. Paired with a somber, gray, pleated skirt and striped button-down, this trendy, graphic top instantly revives your most boring clothes. And, when accented with pastel heels, nude nail polish, and a funky leopard-print cap, our winter blues seem like a thing of the past (well, until we step back outside). Guess it's time to book that Caribbean getaway!
