Every wardrobe needs one complete, go-to look. Each week we invent a new one (and tell you exactly how to get it). Click on the image for a more detailed view.
With its inky plum Rorschach-blot print, Mary Katrantzou's floaty silk shirtdress paints the picture of a belles lettres kind of gal — she's a poet at heart and perhaps a writer by trade, she feels the world (and thinks of new ones) through the ink cylinder of her pen. For a day beating around the city, she'd add classic lace up military boots with nubbly wool stockings that demurely graze the hemline. Reiss's hunter-green handbag provides the perfect place for stashing poetic essentials like pen, paper, and Tarte's cheek stain for a flushed glow.
