This vintage 1960s Donald Brooks trapeze coat is a gorgeous evening layer for those spring nights that still call for a little extra something. In outstanding condition and made entirely of silk and satin, this coat's woven texture is stunning. Its cocktail length sleeves and tie-neck detail are so wonderfully chic.

Digital prints are one of the boldest and most dazzling trends to hit the stylish streets recently. The computer-generated graphics are equally futurisitc and chic, and don't need to be too daring.
Make this season's cool digital prints work for you:
* Pair a short dress with bare, tanned legs and a great neutral (black or nude) strappy ankle boot.
* Avoid too-tight styles and take advantage of drapey styles for comfort and beauty.
* Keep makeup and accessories to a minimum and let the attention be made to your fabulous frock.
A few of my favorites:
* A drapey one-shoulder "gemstone" by Asos.
* Leifsdotter "supernova" silk dress. It's smashing and on sale.
* Matthew Williamson printed silk georgette dress.

This fabulous vintage necklace set is made of milk glass cabachons and rhinestones and is a great combination for spring and summer ensembles. Set against a bare neckline or bright knight, it is a statement piece that screams style.
Dress it up or down - it will be equally stunning.

Don't be afraid to show a little leg with the spring and summer-season must-buy - shorts! From tailored and long to shorter and cuffed, shorts are making a serious style statement right now.
Making it work: Try a tailored pair of slim shorts for the office or casual daytime engagement. Pair them with a tee and blazer or feminine knit on top and a great pair of wedges. For evening, wear a loose pair of shorter shorts rolled at the hem, with a casual white tee and blazer. Top our look off with a great pair of ankle boots.

Wear these casual or dressed and you are sure to make a statement. They are vintage, signed YSL earrings that are gorgeous. At three inches long, they are just the right size to peek out from under a bob, or compliment a longer mane of hair.
Available here (what a nice Easter gift to yourself!).
