Our Editors' Must-Haves For Spring

comments

Excuse us, because we're all suffering from some intense cabin fever. Without sunshine to distract us, we've been holed away inside, online shopping like fiends. Consequently, our spring wish-lists have gotten a tad out of control. But what better way to welcome warm weather than with an entire arsenal of shiny, new toys? We've asked our editors to let us in on their most-wanted items that range from home decor to a fun pair of sandals. Here's what they're itching to put cash down for this spring.

Christene Barberich, Editor-In-Chief



Above, clockwise from top left:

Marc Jacobs Wide-Leg Trousers—"When I saw these in the fall '11 Marc Jacobs show, my heart sort of stopped for a few seconds. I am such a HUGE sucker for amazing wide-leg trousers. I'm tall, so they work on me, and these are just amazing."
Marc Jacobs Satin High-Waist Pants, $695, available at Neiman Marcus.

Dooney & Bourke Medium Bubble Cross-Body Bag—"I recently spotted this bag in Vogue, and became instantly obsessed with its lack of blingyness. I love the discreet hardware and utilitarian design."
$395, available at Dooney

J.Crew Classic Straw Panama Hat—"I like to walk to and from work over the Brooklyn Bridge in warm weather, and this hat is just right for giving me some good-looking shade."
$58, available at J.Crew.

MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 Moisturizer—"I've been wearing this stuff for years and while I've tried a lot of other products that are similar, this one provides the best coverage (with a touch of protection) by far."
MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 Moisturizer, $29.50, available at Macy's.

Alaïa Laser-Cut Two-Tone Leather iPad Case—"I just got an iPad and I am embarrassed to say that I've been doting on it like a pet. I am certain this gorgeous case would make it very, very happy."
$715, available at Net-A-Porter.

Steven Alan Spring Renada Blazer—"Steven Alan's collections keep getting better and better, and this pretty little silk blazer is hardcore proof. I will wear this all spring and summer long."
$385, available at Steven Alan.

Loeffler Randall Vivian Wedge Sandal—"I recently saw the editor of Foam Magazine in L.A. wearing these and immediately knew I had to have them. They're such a great, unexpected basic, and they are allegedly very comfy, too."
$495, available at Loeffler Randall.

Mawi Colored Pearl Earrings—"I just cut all my hair off so I'm really into wearing long earrings again. Such a nice change from the statement necklace."
$173.88, available at Jules B.

3.1 Phillip Lim Box Braid Collar—"I love how simple yet impacting this gorgeous collar necklace is. I'd wear this to dress up a white sweater all spring long."
$206, available at TenOverSix.

Club Monaco Tila Sleeveless Jacket—"I'm obsessing long vests for spring. This utilitarian sleeveless coat is super-versatile and would be equally great with jeans and a T-shirt or a femme floral dress."
$169, available at select Club Monaco stores.

Maison Michel For Opening Ceremony Wide Rim Hat—"My hat collection is starting to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa...would one more make the tower topple? I'm willing to risk it for this fantastic burnt orange option."
$390, available at Opening Ceremony.

Giles & Brother Cuff Hook Cuff—"This cuff is so timeless. Hey bracelet, I'm forever your girl. You know I am."
$115, available at Giles & Brother.

Smashbox In Bloom Cheek Cream—"Flushed cheeks make me feel instantly pretty and I love this pinky new limited-edition blush from Smashbox."
$26, available at Sephora.

Kensie Loose Knit Sweater—"How sexy would this be over a bikini come summer? For now, I'll be layering it over a white button-down and slim trousers."
$78, available at Kensie.

Domina Fruit Baskets
"My friend recently introduced me to this cool organization, Nest. They provide micro-lending to craftswomen in the third world and sells their wares to the US. I discovered these awesome graphic woven bowls there. They'd make a killer housewarming gift although I'd probably be greedy and keep them for myself."
$38 each, available at Nest.

ASOS Envelope Satchel—"Colorful bags are my top eBay search at the moment but if the quest for a vintage version fails, I've got this affordable option from ASOS. A perfect outfit cherry bomb."
$89.65, available at ASOS.

Boutique 9 Pawla Raffia Platforms—"So, so retro...I can totally imagine these on the feet of a 1940s pin-up girl."
$190, available at Nine West.

Connie Wang, Global Editor



Above, clockwise from top left:

Kate Spade Essex Small Scout—"I've been on a satchel rampage lately, and this mini Scout bag comes in the exact bubblegum-pink that's been missing in my life."
$295, available at Kate Spade.

Zara Leather Pants—"There's something about the '50s greaser look that feels particular enticing to me this season. I'd wear these leather pants with giant wedges and a fuzzy Teddy-bear sweater."
$259, available at Zara.

Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips—"The same nail polish strips have lasted me for a good two weeks now and there's not a single chip to be seen. I'm going to stock up at my corner drugstore the next time I'm there. They're like the broke (and crafty!) girl's version of Minx."
$8.50, available at your local drugstore.

Urbanears Tanto Headphones—"It's hard for me to resist mint-green accessories, especially when they look like something that came out of my 5th grade music class. Especially when the price is so friendly"
$40, available at Urbanears.

Jeffrey Campbell Suede Sandals—"I rarely wear flats in warm weather, just because the rest of my outfit tends to veer a little casual. These rainbow-striped platforms are some kind of wonderful."
$114, available at Pixie Market.

House of Harlow 1960 Carey Sunglasses—"I'm slowly learning what it means to be the kind of person that doesn't lose her sunglasses. These House of Harlow babies make me feel like some James Bond girl from the '60s, minus the accent and heaving cleavage."
$121, available at Singer22.

Davines No.10 Universal Polishing Paste—"After getting a perm, a chemical straightener, and 3-or-so dye jobs in the past year, it was time for me to cut my hair all off and start anew. My blunt, wavy bob necessitates a heavy-duty product like Davine's Polishing Paste to keep it looking shiny and un-Christmas-Tree-like."
$25.49, available at SleekHair.

VPL B-Bra—"I haven't done the exposed-bra look in quite some time, but this tough-looking VPL bralette is really speaking to me. Maybe it's time to bring back those low-cut tanks!"
$85, available at La Garconne.
