WHAT: Gianvito Rossi Nappa Leather Mules
WHY: Get a head start on spring dressing by baring your heels! The mule might not exactly be new to the scene, but they're certainly having a moment of their own this season. These au courant kicks by Gianvito Rossi (he's Sergio's son!) in a rich shade of midnight blue play nicely with a short dress, but will also get down to business with a pair of tailored trousers. One thing's for certain: be sure to indulge in an equally chic pedicure before slipping into these babies.

WHAT: Kotur Margo Tulle Floral-Appliqué Clutch
WHY: Let's be frank: we all need a reminder that spring is just around the corner. (Warm temps are coming sometime soon...right?!) Adding a pink pop of color to your wintry wares should be simple with this petal-covered Kotur bag. Nestled in the floral splendor of this bag is a sweet gold clasp and a shoulder strap for the option of going hands-free.

WHAT: Maggy London The Illusion Dress
WHY: They say that good things come to those that wait, and this not-so-basic LBD fits that bill. While this dress won’t be hanging in your closet until mid-March, but pre-order now and you'll have plenty of time to figure out how to accessorize with aplomb. With a sweetheart neckline and a sheer cap-sleeved top, the color noir has never looked so romantic.

WHAT: Verdura Curb-Link Bracelet
WHY: Love a bauble with a legend? Not only does this 18-karat yellow gold curb-link bracelet exude classic charm, it’s also associated with an age-old tale that makes it certified chic. Italian jeweler Fulco di Verdura designed this piece for the great Greta Garbo in the late Thirties, to remind the actress of di Verdura. It became one of Garbo’s favorites and soon Hollywood starlets began coveting his glamorous jewels. Verdura was also a design collaborator and friend of Coco Chanel. Chic pals much?
AVAILABLE: $22,500, Verdura.com
