After honing her skills at Kate Spade New York and Steven Alan, designer Whitney Pozgay launched Whit, her own women’s clothing line, in 2010. Whit’s whimsical, feminine interpretations of basic wardrobe separates immediately garnered attention from fashion magazines and tastemakers for their effortlessness and simplicity. Vintage-inspired dresses, textured knits, structured skirts, rompers, tops, and other designs feature fun details such as stripes, ruffles, and geography-themed flourishes. For its 2012 runway debut, Pozgay unveiled an adorable collection featuring ingenious outer space-inspired prints and super-chic mini dresses. This Whit knows all about wit.
Now that the weather is finally warming up, it's time to show a little leg. Have some fun — and avoid reaching for the same staples — in everything from patterned patchwork minis and bold ikat shorts to bird-flecked midis and congac cut-offs.
Style icons from Anita Pallenberg to Alexa Chung agree: For a statement-making look that’s totally unique, it’s all about Anna Sui. From embroidered lace capes and skirts to Peter Pan collar dresses and silk kimono jackets, these pieces are ablaze with the Detroit-born designer’s trademark color combinations. But the trendsetting-chic doesn't end there. You’ll also find elegant silk separates by Robert Rodriguez, jewel-tone dresses by Geren Ford, seriously edgy knits by Edun, and much more. Cool girls everywhere, rejoice!
